After years of language learning, Scripture translation and writing Bible lessons, followed by three-and-a-half months of daily teaching of the story of redemption, from Creation through Christ, the first of the Iski people of Papua New Guinea have understood the Gospel and trusted in Christ!
They testified: “I believe that this is true. I was a sinner since I was born. I was born under Satan’s clan. Yesterday, I heard the story of the Savior who died for me, and I believed it. Jesus died and said to his father, ‘Why did you forsake me?’ I understand what that means, and I’m healed from my sin.” – Makoleta
“I heard the story of the Savior that died for me. God is love and sent his Son to save us, to save me. I understood that God died for me. God sent Jesus to save Boni. God bought me back from Satan’s clan.” – Boni
Big headlines are being made today in the world. The leader of our nation is on his first international trip, visiting important nations and world leaders.
But from heaven’s perspective, there is nothing more earthshaking than when the light of the gospel illuminates the hearts of the precious people of a “nation” or “ethnos” for the first time — a people group that has been living in spiritual darkness.
Please pray that a strong, mature church will grow among the Iski people and that they will go on to be ambassadors for Christ to their neighbors. This is the ultimate goal of all that we do.
Thank you for investing your time and treasure for the fulfillment of Christ’s Great Commission to His Church to share the Good News with every people!
In our Saviour’s measureless love,
Steve & Eida Irwin
