Lutheran missionaries meet in Lae

Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church at Bumbu Police Barracks in Lae will host a missions’ awareness conference from Thursday May 28 till Sunday May 31.

The theme of the conference is: “Nau em taim bilong yumiBai mi mekim wanem (it is our time…what will I do)?”

According to Warime Guti of the Lutheran Information Centre at Ampo in Lae, this annual missions’ conference programme includes tesimonies and stories from former PNG Lutheran missionaries who have served with Operation Mobilisation, Youth With A Mission, and PNG World Missions.

“We also have speakers including missionaries Yoso Kui and Victoria Kui from Munum in the Markham Valley, who served in Sundan for nine years,” Mr Guti said.

“Other speakers include Mr Ninits Elafoan, Director, PNG World Missions Ms Tema Manko, and Pr Bapa Bomoteng.

“The purpose and the focus is:

  • Bring awareness of local and overseas evangelism and missions to Lutheran congregation and the body of Christ in general; and
  • Create awareness that the Lutheran Church has a great, rich heritage of mission history for evangelism work from the coast to the highlands of New Guinea from the 1920s to the 1970s.

“The challenge is: Can the Christians of today take up the evangelism and missions’ call and do something in this generation? In PNG as well as abroad?

“Missions and the evangelism fire should not only be kindled when mv Doulos or a crusade or a big-time evangelist is in town.

“It should be an on going church activity.

“That is the challenge OSLC is embarking on.”

For further information on the conference, please contact the missions’ coordinator at OSLC Missions on telephone (675) 4791110.
