Wusuraambyans hunger for God’s Word

By February 17, 2009

Papua New Guinea (MNN) — Missionaries in Papua New Guinea are making sure that the Wusuraambyan people are spiritually fed. Andrew and Cathy Goud, with New Tribes Mission were reminded recently of their work's importance. Rather than resting at home after a hard day's work, 60 Wusuraambyan believers gathered to learn from Romans. Over 100 adults and children were taught from the book of Acts that following Sunday.

Andrew and Cathy Goud are translating Scripture into the Wusuraambyan language. Through chronological Bible teachings, they show the Wusuraambyan people that Christ is the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy. Many have come to realize that the finished work of Jesus on the cross is the only way to be reconciled to God. Six of these believers are now teaching the Truth to their fellow tribesmen. These young men teach older believers from the book of Romans and new believers from the book of Acts.

NTM missionaries know that their labor is not in vain. Many belonging to the Wusuraambyan tribe want God's Word in their language, and there are many more that need it. Pray that God would renew the strength of Bible translators. Pray also for the Wusuraambya Bible teachers as they lead fellow believers in correct understanding of Scripture. Andrew Goud is currently working on translating the book of Exodus, and Cathy the book of Ruth.

You could help these believers with your prayers and encouragement. If you want to learn more about their ministry in Papua New Guinea, click here.
