The Wahgi church has pooled their resources to purchase a piece of property which will hopefully not be contested in the future and have begun the process of clearing it and laying the foundation for the new building.
Through the generous donations of a few churches, they have been able to get the necessary materials and will start the building process this week! Please pray that this new start will be good for the church and that there will not be any future conflict regarding the land on which the building will sit.
In February sixteen ladies from the village were able to go to a women’s Bible conference. There were also women attending this conference from other churches which New Tribes missionaries have planted in the past. This conference is something the Wahgi ladies have been looking forward to for the last year and it was a great encouragement for them to join up with other Christian women for a time of fellowship, as well as being challenged in the Word. Many of the women have said that the Lord used the things discussed to challenge them. Please pray for these women as they seek to incorporate what they’ve learned into their daily lives. Pray for their families. Pray specifically for their husbands as not many of them are believers and do not attend the teaching.
Pray for wisdom for Levi and Robyn and Dan and Rachel as they continue to be involved in the North Wahgi church planting ministry.
