From NTM PNG Managing Director Keith Copley
Request for URGENT Prayer!
The church among the Mibu people group of Papua New Guinea is calling on brothers and sisters around the world to PRAY.
Established in 2006, the church in Mibu has grown and matured through many trials and the very passage of life. (This is the church that I wrote about in last month’s post Aviation Matters.)
In the last couple weeks, they have started asking for prayer for wisdom in dealing with a hostile criminal gang that has been roaming the area, leaving a wake of mayhem and destruction as they travel from village to village. As the rumor of these attacks grew in frequency, scale of destruction, and in closer vicinity, the realization of confrontation the Mibu village seemed inevitable. Today, that confrontation happened. We received a message today that the band of criminals has arrived in the Mibu village. This is a very dangerous situation.
As we await word from our dear brothers and sisters, please be holding them before the Throne in prayer. Pray specifically that:
- They will remember that the true enemy is not physical, but spiritual.
- They will remember that they belong to the Lord, and He loves them intimately.
- The enemy will gain no foothold among the people of God…not in fear or anger.
- The Lord will show himself strong on behalf of His church in Mibu.
- The Lord be glorified!
Thank you for joining with us in prayer for this difficult situation.
