Around the World in Prayer
“As for the saints who are in the earth, they are the majestic ones in whom is all my delight.” Psalm 16:3
Please pray for the majestic saints of Papua New Guinea!
We depart today for the long travel into Numba village, Oro Province, Papua New Guinea. The above verse, Psalm 16:3, describes God’s delight in the people of Numba and our love for them as well. These people live in a remote and geographically isolated mountain jungle village. Yet, through God’s sovereign grace, He has seen fit to reach an illiterate, uneducated people group, held in bondage of fear to the spirits of their dead ancestors, with the life-changing Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Many years ago, pioneer Wycliffe Missionaries, Jim and Jaki Parlier, braved this darkness with the light of Jesus Christ, dedicating their life to communicate the Gospel and translate the Word of God into the heart language of the Ese people. At the completion of that great accomplishment, God burdened them with the establishment of Ese Bible Institute—a simple but effective Bible college to doctrinally train church leaders, evangelists, Sunday School teachers, and pastors for the work of the ministry. What the Lord has accomplished in and through humble souls is nothing short of miraculous!
It is our joy and privilege, this week, to once again return to Numba Village for the graduation of Ese Bible Institute students and to further train the majestic saints in a sound understanding of God’s Word. Thank you for joining us in prayer!
The team going into Numba for ministry is Gene and Nan, Logan, and Faisal.
