For three months, they travelled and ministered without any contact with the EHC office in PNG. They hiked on foot, crossing rivers and climbing mountains with boxes full of gospel literature.
It was impractical to carry enough food for three months of ministry, so they lived off the land, sometimes receiving meals from friendly villagers, but many times fasting simply because there was nothing to eat.
“We encountered a great hunger for the Word of God in this district,” the team reports. Many people are learning to read and when they receive the Good News, they are eager to share it with others.”
