Unreached people groups are isolated from the Gospel and nearly every modern convenience readily available to you and me. In order to reach these people with the Good News missionaries have to overcome extraordinary obstacles.
God has faithfully provided each step of the way since Benjamin and Missy and their four children began living with the Amdu people in Papua New Guinea. Their remote bush location means that they are unable to communicate with the outside world except via high frequency radio and modem. They receive all their supplies via aircraft; they collect rain water to drink and bathe and their house is solar powered.
You might think this sounds idyllic by today’s standard of the modern, high stress, fast paced lifestyle; however it is anything but ideal, especially for the Amdu people. The remote setting in which they live is one of the leading factors that has kept them from a clear understanding of the Gospel.
Benjamin and Missy are learning the Amdu language and seeking to understand the way the Amdu people see the world around them and understand reality. This is essential knowledge for missionaries who want to effectively minister the Good News across language and cultural barriers. Thank you for your interest in what God is doing in Amdu!
