The CRMF Week-End Outreach ministry had three opportunities last week-end to tell people that God loves them and there is hope for everyone!. This was done through Tech Talk which is an awareness to educate the Church and the community on how to utilise technology for ministry and also warn against the wrong use of technology which is a direct threat to ministry. The CRMF team to Ukarumpa was with the Lutheran Renewal Church. Pastor Ham Peter and family and the church members received us well with the Tech Talk and the preaching on Sunday morning on the topic of “What is truth?” in the context of the Pilate’s question to Jesus in John 18:37
One of the major issues that we are helping to educate during our talks is the high rate of violence against women in Papua New Guinea. It is general knowledge that the media has speculated that “PNG is a very dangerous place for a woman to live.”
Pornography does affect everybody and not only the addicted person because this person has a family and a community. It is similar to a ‘haus krai’ situation which affects the family and the community because a person has died.
We thank the Lord for the opportunities to address social issues like the caption above. It is a very poor excuse to steal and sell sex in order to survive because our Lord has blessed our country abundantly. All we need to do is to make use of the sound mind that the Lord has given us to help us make better choices.
The Shocking Reality of the Sexual Violence Epidemic in Papua New Guinea. A new Doctors without Borders survey documents the alarming scale of the abuse of women and children in the country.
The team is grateful to the Lord for opening up an opportunity for ministry. As a result, we were able to cross over the Bae River to minister to the members of the Lutheran Renewal Church.
We pray for opportunities to cross rivers and situations and into the lives of trapped people because of wrong choices they have made or wrong thinking they have grown up with; as a result they are addicted to pornography and wrong thinking about others and having non- communicable diseases
There is also the high rise of diabetics in the Pacific Islands and Papua New Guinea directly related to the kind of food we eat. This report from the IPS [Inter Press News Service] concludes that increase in consumption of fresh foods and exercise will help prevent non-communicable diseases. http://www.ipsnews.net/2015/02/diabetes-epidemic-threatens-development-gains-in-pacific-islands/
