23 Wahgi Believers Baptized

On Sunday, November 23, the first believer’s baptism was held in Wahgi, Papua New Guinea. Levi and Robyn Lenz write, “Twenty-three individuals were baptized to publicly demonstrate their reliance on Christ alone for their salvation. The majority of these individuals had been previously baptized for various reasons striving to somehow secure their salvation, but after clearly understanding the way of salvation and the true meaning of baptism, they wanted to be baptized again to show their dependency on Christ as their Saviour.”

 

Bible translation moving forward for Nagi people

Porter Hampton is working on translating the Bible for the Nagi people of Asia-Pacific. He is checking comprehension of passages from Exodus 25 through the end of the Old Testament that support the chronological Bible teaching. After that he is hoping to get back into lesson development for a while and get the lessons caught up to where the translation is.
