(BROOKS :21) Meanwhile, the need for missionaries in Papua New Guinea is great, because of requests for new ministry by tribal groups in that South Pacific country. New Tribes Mission officials say the Roa (row like “cow”) people are asking them to begin translating the Bible into their language. The Igom (ee-GAHM) people have also made a request. They’re asking New Tribes to send missionaries to teach them about Christ. Agency officials say there’s a great spiritual thirst, but not enough missionaries to fill the need.
