Day in and day out we face spiritual attacks that seem overwhelming. But the work continues, our national coworkers labor on, and God sustains. He always sustains.
The best way you can support the branch is through prayer. Please see our Monthly Prayer Focus and our Strategic Prayer Requests pages to help guide your prayers for the work of Pioneer Bible Translators in PNG.
PNG Building Development
Pioneer Bible Translators has been working in Madang and East Sepik Provinces for four decades. Many times the road has been daunting, but God has faithfully walked by our side guiding our steps. He has given us a vision to serve the least and the last.
In order to serve them we need more teammates. As we pray fervently and God begins to answer, we face a need that’s impossible to ignore. We are running out of space to live and work. After much prayer and thought, we have embarked on a journey to develop our facilities in a manner that will enable our team to grow wisely.
The housing market in Papua New Guinea is extreme. Properties sell high and fast. Right now prices are starting to dip back down and the exchange rate is heavily in our favor. Due to these factors and the imminent arrival of new teammates, we are initiating Phase One of a multiphase facility development plan this year. Phase One includes a two-pronged approach: build and buy.
Build: Using our strong facilities maintenance team we are building a two-story structure on one of our current properties that will provide three homes. Building will cost an estimated $200,000.
Buy: Throughout the year we will be pursuing new property to develop more housing and office space. Buying a property that would fit our needs will cost an estimated $500,000.
