Today was our last Sunday in Papua New Guinea. We are so thankful we could be in the village of Lossu with the Notsi. We were able to encourage the use of the published Scriptures in church. Today they read John 3:1-16. Luther, pictured above, was close to tears as he heard the passage read in his own language. He gave thanks to God for it. After a while he was able to share his message from that passage.
Here in Papua New Guinea the first Sunday in September is Fathers Day. Gertrude was asked to make a cake for the fathers. Since we are not going to be here for Fathers Day Gertrude made a cake for them today and we went to visit different fathers to give then a piece of cake. Each one had a smile of thanks as they received their piece. A good way to say good-bye was we are getting ready to leave.
