Tucked away in a little village along the eastern shore we completely missed celebrating Thanksgiving as we recorded God’s word in the Lote language last year….This year we made up for it!
Our Pastor – We are thankful for Pastor his wife. They have been serving faithfully here in PNG for over 30 years. Only God could have lead us to this wonderful Baptist Church that would become the source of feeding our spirit with solid teachings straight from the Bible. Being a fellow American (wontok) they created a Thanksgiving feast and we thanked God for his great abundance in our lives.
Our Friends – That night we were invited to another Thanksgiving by dear friends from Australia, Germany & Papua New Guinea that wanted to help us celebrate. We are so thankful for their friendships, cultural teachings, listening ear and sharing their passion of Kokopo with us. Through some really hard times…these were the friends that picked us up and showered us in love.
Our Staff – The next day we had a PNG style Thanksgiving. The Kokopo center is the heart of where so much work for Christ is being done to glorify Him. From multiple language translation projects, dubbing the Jesus film into the different languages, to audio Bible recordings and so much more…for this to happen we provide a place for everyone to come together. A clean, organized, safe location with water & electricity. A place where you can feel God’s presence and see His beauty all around you. It’s been our act of worship to work tirelessly on your behalf through Christ and with an amazing staff. We are so thankful for Lati, Nelson & Bob. To work beside them. Their integrity, commitment and desire to show the love of Christ in all they do.
