Morobe Mission Reaches out to New Work Area

15 Feb 2022 Jermaine Thomas

The Seventh-day Adventist Church has finally made a breakthrough into an area which is a stronghold for the Lutheran church .Finschhafen is regarded as the home and birth place of the Evangelical Lutheran Church. The church’s office is located at Helsburg, which is some 5 kilometers away from Wengune Seventh-day Adventist Church. For years, since the establishment of the church at Wengune, no attempt was made to visit or conduct seminars on the books of Revelation and Daniel in nearby places due to resistance from the locals. Recently, the Morobe Mission held a district camp meeting at Gaugau community near Helsburg. 

The District Director for Finschhafen PR Raymond Pololi ran a meeting from November 21- 27 on the theme Laspla Singaut blo God (God’s Final Call).Ten (10) people were baptized at the end of the meeting. More than 800 people witnessed the baptism. It was an eye-opener for them because baptisms are done through sprinkling in their church.

The community made a commitment to build a lamb shelter so that they can continue to bring light to others who are yet to know the truth. They also requested for prayers so that they can build a church. Church members and baptismal candidates camped along Skull Head beach to attend the meeting. 

Many people from nearby areas attended the meetings each night. After morning devotions, church members, both old and young, took part in activities under the Total Membership Involvement (TMI) initiative. They helped locals who had allowed the meeting in their community. 

The activities included the refurbishment of a step for the house of a landowner. The landowner initially allowed the church to build the stage and kitchen for the camp meeting and provided water supply for the campers. The members also arranged to help build a copra fermentary for a widow so she could meet all her needs.

According to Morobe Missions (MM) Personal Ministry and Sabbath School (PMSS) director, Pastor Enosh Enopa, the initiative also introduces its new approach in Evangelism, the Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria 24/7 Ministry as post and pre-evangelism.

Enopa, “In addition, we will try our best to create 5000 small groups from the existing 300 Sabbath schools by June 2020, and to re-disciple church members to disciple new members as they come in.” he added.

Morobe Mission also for the first time had 130 active laity and missionaries attend its first ever School of Evangelism on the 7th to 12th of July, where Papua New Guinea Union Mission (PNGUM) President, Pastor Kepsie Elodo prayed over and charged them at the stadium.
