It was with great rejoicing that the Siawi Church learned the people of one Amto village asked for their missionaries to come back! They want to hear the rest of the foundational teaching about what God says about sin and his provision of a sin payment.
As you prayed, a respected leader from another denomination asked the Amto people to come together for a meeting. During his visit to the Amto people he strongly urged them to give up all the false teaching that has been abounding in their group. He told them that they desperately need to hear the foundational teaching, from Genesis through the first chapter of Acts. “The four men from Siawi Bible Church are my dear brothers and you should listen to them,” was his exhortation to them.
The people of Amto took his words to heart and have asked Ekebei and his wife to come back to teach. Ekebei is very excited for this opportunity to return to His family and friends to teach in their village. He wants to see them hear the good news and accept Christ as their Savior. He plans to move back up there the last week of May, so please be praying much for them, as they go. His brother, Wawiao, will probably go with him to help him.
Please continue to pray for another village in the Amto language group nearby. They have not shown any openness to want to listen to further teaching and continue to strongly hold on to practices which are a mix of many varied religious teachings combined with what they see in the Old Testament with modern day twists. Please pray that they also will be willing to hear the whole truth and that they might also turn to Christ the only one true, acceptable sacrifice for sin.
