BCT A GIFT FROM THE LORD
“The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.” Psalms 16:6. (HCSB) Tok Pisin version says; “Mi kisim olgeta gudpela samting long yu tasol, ol dispela samting I gudpela tru”
The participants were so happy because they understood that the Lord has prepared a gift for them in this age of technology. The general expression by them was that their normal habit of getting help from the stationary shops for typing and printing is over! They now have the knowledge to plan and monitor their administrative and ministry work, thanks to the Lord who is a giver of all good gifts. Indeed, as confirmed in Psalms 16:6, the timing to have this training is the Lord’s timing and gifting to prepare his workers for ministry.

They continue to be one of our key partners in using technology for ministry thus assisting CRMF in promoting the use of technology by the Church.
As facilitators in this training, we were glad to deliver this training to pastors, Seket office workers, Sunday School Co-ordinators and teachers of Girls Training Centre (GTC). All expressed their eagerness to learn more through their representative on graduation day that; “one week was not sufficient for them.”

All ministry workers everywhere in Papua New Guinea know that basic computer training is a must for all their workers. As expressed by the 29 participants that attended; “We have had enough of queuing at bookshops for administrative assistance.”
Most of them expressed that they want to be confident and in control of what they do in their administrative roles and as preachers in ministry. In our previous training a certain Pastor expressed his control in this manner. “I have been writing my sermons and letting others type it for me for my sermon on Sunday. However, this basic computing course has assisted me to type my own sermon, and most importantly, I now can deliver my sermon fresh because no one has typed it for me!”
Our important role as “Technology for the Church” continues to be assisting pastors and ministry workers become confident and in control of their services to the Lord.
Special thank you to Benjamin Wagi, the EBC Kainantu IT support person who assisted the team in delivering this training.
