The adventure of missions includes many opportunities for new experiences. Coming home to Campbell River I didn’t know there was a new Christian radio station, 88.7 Spirit FM, or that I would be invited to share about our new adventure on the air. A new friend, Paul Herman, put me in contact with Terry Somerville, the manager of this charitable ministry, to share our story with listeners which quickly turned into a two part interview. I admit I was a bit nervous beforehand but once I got chatting with Terry I relaxed into the familiar surroundings of microphones and sound gear.
In the picture you can see me focussing, trying to answer questions quickly without dead air. Once the conversation got going though I was able to transition into the familiar topic of tribal missions that we have been sharing in many churches and homes. Everywhere we visit we have been repeating the need for tribal missions and the work that God is doing and we will keep telling the numbers and the stories on behalf of those who are lost and are waiting. The tribal people in places like Papua New Guinea have no voice to call for Canadians to ‘come over to PNG and help us’ (see Acts 16:9-10) but we can be their voice, and pass on the message that they want the church to know:
“Everywhere in every place the talk of God is there… Why not us? Talk to the leaders of your church and send us someone. Don’t give your backsides to us, are you clear on what I’m saying here or not? We have a huge desire for a missionary to come and live in our village and jungle.” Alus Nekibisap (Sabimin Tribe, PNG) Read more from these tribes here.
