An Update from Margaret in Papua New Guinea


An update while I am in "town' this week after a three month series of Bible trainings for clergy.  Covid19 legislation meant that we are not allowed have large church gatherings. This became a blessing in disguise as we were able to think in terms of small groups of clergy coming deanery by deanery. So we've had over 40 attend together for a week doing three things:

- Whole of bible Overview  - Anglican Studies colleagues think Old Testament and New Testaments overview materials condensed from 12 months to six days!

- Theological Reflections

- Build a community of men serving one another in worship through household chores such as cleaning and dish washing. Selfishly, it was great to be banned from the kitchen for three weeks.

Bearing in mind that the groups were multi-cultural and multilingual, praise God we all survived peacefully. Also, praise God we were fed well. Lastly, I praise God for just enough money from supporters for dinghy fuel and for the generator so we that we had electricity for four hours each evening."
