Last week we had a great time of visiting with another mission organization that works out in the western area of PNG with the Atbalmin people group. It was great to travel with their director to an area that is looking to have NTM come in to help with taking the church to the next level of development. There are a few young believers scattered in this area, but they really lack a deep understanding of The Word because there has not been adequate vernacular ministry done in the past in this location. NTM-PNG will provide a team of missionaries that will learn the local language and their cultural beliefs. This team will then teach the people to read and write in the vernacular. Finally, the team will also provide scripture and lessons that will one day make the redemption story and New Testament available to this portion of the Atbalmin people group in their heart language. What an awesome privilege to provide direction for this team and work with other organizations to open doors for the growth and development of HIS church among the Atbalmin people.
Thank you for allowing our family to be a part of this work. Please pray for us as we work with this team to see them allocated in the next few months.
