A vision for a room

We’re already into the second month of the new year! The team’s focus this year is setting up a small resource centre in Kiunga, which is the only town of any size in the North Fly. This project has been made possible in part because of the gentleman in the photo, Yangtem Katie. As the church official who oversees all of the North Fly schools operated by the Evangelical Church of Papua New Guinea, he believed in the North Fly team’s vision to set up a distribution hub to supply Bibles and other ministry resources. We helped him finish his new office, and in this photo he is standing in the room he had just vacated for our use.

Advice needed

​Taking a short break today from the Pa Language album to crowd-source the answer to a question:

Can anyone tell us the legal steps in PNG to starting a social enterprise, especially a non-profit one?

Thanks for any help!

Technology in Kiunga


My favorite store in Kiunga is this one, with the imaginative name Fly Nets. Today on a short shopping trip to town I am planning to get a price list for the printing services they offer. I am doing this for Willie Yofu, the manager of our Honinabi resource centre. He sent this request to me by email from his house in our village. This same house has a sago-leaf thatched roof and an open-pit fireplace in the main room where the internet connection is.

Please pray for wisdom as we try to help the Church here take root in solid ground while the storms of change continue to swirl around us.
