This is the church Paul and Daniel spent a day helping build. It has a concrete floor, metal roof and metal siding which isn’t typical of a PNG village church. The songs, scripture, prayers and preaching were all in Tok Pisin but we were able to follow along for the most part. It was special to worship with our Papua New Guinean brothers and sisters in Christ.
This past Sunday our family crossed the Ba’e River and went on a short, beautiful hike to the Lutheran Renewal Center, a village church here in the valley. Pastor Ham (rhymes with Mom) met us to lead the way. Pastor Ham and his wife, Weti, are involved in translation.
