Papua New Guinea

Welcome to our PNG section of the website. Bro Carver was made the General Superintendent of the work in September 2004, and since that time we have been busy travelling to and fro between PNG, Lismore and Cairns.

Read on for latest news from Papua New Guinea, or read a little history of the work.

Home Missionary to Daru

Home Missionary sent to Daru - Nov 2011

For a long time we have wanted to send Home Missionaries to the untouched regions of PNG. Daru is one such place. In November, God moved upon the heart of a young man from Goroka, Bro. Jack Gene and family, to go to this remote region.

This is just one of the places which the World Missions Department has reached out to in the last year. Read some of the exciting success stories of our own PNG Home Missionaries... [more]

Bible School Development

Bible School Teacher Training - October 2011

PNG has been anticipating the resumption of full-time Bible School, which was meant to happen in 2010 and again in 2011, but for certain reasons delayed. With the arrival of the Pai's from Fiji, both Bro Pai and myself are more than keen to take on this challenge.

To help us out, we intend to train a group of core and backup teachers from the local population. This historic milestone was marked by a special Teacher Training course... [more]

Paitadra Family's arrival

PNG Gets New Missionaries! - Sep 2011

We are extremely excited and grateful to have a brand new missionary family in Papua New Guinea. Rev & Sis Paitadra from Fiji arrived in PNG in September to begin work here in the Bible School and in training. Their arrival here was not without cost though; on the eve of their departure from Fiji, just as they were going to the airport, they received news that their daughter had passed away after a severe illness.

PNG is glad to have such people of dedication who are willing to dedicate themselves to PNG in spite of great personal loss.... [more]

Creation of a Print Room - Sept 2011
