On Tuesday, January 10, the leadership of most of the denominations and many missions in the Sepik region set up Sepik Churches in Partnership for Christ (SCPC) to “work together to see people in the Sepik truly know God’s Word and emulate Christ in their lives”. This is a major milestone as the responsibility for translation and language work needed for the remaining 100 languages in the Sepik region is taken on by the Papua New Guinean churches. It also tasks the churches to work together to see God’s Word have a transforming impact in peoples lives.
The SCPC will draw up bylaws and pick a pilot project before reporting back to the larger church body. Thank you for praying and for standing together with us. God is moving in exciting ways!
