Return from Deputation Report

by Bro Peter Gration, AIMers to PNG

The Peter Gration family returned to PNG from Deputation during our renovation at the end of June 2005. They are the resident missionaries to New Guinea, and certainly have arrived to a busy time! They write...

Bible School site

Well it has been an exciting time of settling in. We have kind of hit the ground with our feet running, especially with the building. Please continue to keep this in prayer, as the next three weeks are vital. We are running to such a tight schedule that any details could be fatal in getting the slab done in time. I’ve attached a couple of photos below of the progress being made yesterday. I will try and keep you up to date with photos as it moves along.

We feel we have settled back in fairly well, naturally it has taken a while to get adjusted to everything again. We certainly appreciate and are very, very thankful for the work that was done on the Mission House while we were gone. The upstairs was so fresh and clean and the floors are wonderful. Not only is the office downstairs and the fresh paint etc., helping to lift the morale of the church, but it also gives us a nice work environment. The office well utilized with Ministers coming in regularly and Sister Bennie is being kept busy. The Bookstore is also becoming quite an attraction, especially now with the VCD’s. I have made 10 different VCDs of preaching and music from DVDs that I brought back with me. These are now all available in the bookstore. I feel that this is an important part of the work, as this kind of preaching and uplifting material can go to places and be there 24 – 7 encouraging the brethren in the faith.

We are planning on formulating a some training materials on to VCD in Pidgin, as there will be no Bible School this year due to the packed schedule. We plan to work on this and have some developed by the end of the year. This kind of material will also fill a big need as there are many ministers pastoring already who may never be able to come to Bible School. It will also serve as refresher material for those who complete Bible School in the future.

We look forward to seeing everyone in September and once again let me say how much we appreciate all the efforts put in by all of you for the work in Papua New Guinea.
