We are the Flanagan family, Simon, Annika, Nya (14), Noah (13), Karis (10), Judah (7) and Ethan (5). We are full time missionaries with Ethnos360 and are working in the Eastern region of Papua New Guinea (New Britain Island). We have been in Papua New Guinea since 2007 and are working in a church planting ministry with the Mengen people group. We joined the existing team of two families and two single ladies. We are so thankful for the hard work they put into the work of presenting the gospel and building the church with us. Our team mates had to leave the work for many reasons, some got sick, family needs, moving on to other ministries etc. We are now working alongside the Mengen church as a single family and it’s God’s plan for us to partner with them in building and expanding the gospel in Mengen land.
We are hoping to see many more churches planted amongst the many Mengen villages who haven’t received the gospel yet. At present we have one church of around sixty believers in a small village. We have still around fifteen to twenty thousand Mengen speakers still without a clear message of the gospel. When we return in 2023 we are asking God to open a way for us to start teaching Literacy and then present the Gospel in another village; please pray God opens a door for the gospel.
