Papua New Guinea
Organization: Ethnos 360
Few countries can match the cultural diversity of Papua New Guinea (PNG), whose 7 million people speak more than 800 languages, and live mostly in rural, indigenous communities. In 2009, a group of Madak believers began to gather together to be taught by the missionaries from God's Word. Today they gather together on their own and are taught by their fellow clansmen. The church is functioning and maturing with the leading of the Holy Spirit. There are other churches on New Ireland (PNG) as well, and these believers and leaders continue to grow in their relationships with each other as they help, encourage, exhort, and correct each other. Pray as a change of location for ministry within Papua New Guinea is considered for Sharon’s team.
