Chasing power. That’s what the Pal people of Papua New Guinea have always done. They’ve chased after power to make their gardens grow, power to control the spirits, power over sickness and death, and power to become rich and influential. But for the first time they’re questioning that power.
They’re seeing a different power, the power of the Holy Spirit and what He offers — and it’s nothing like what they’ve traditionally sought after. Instead of health, wealth and influence, they’re learning that the Holy Spirit offers a deeper understanding of God and communion with Him. He offers to empower believers to withstand temptation. He’s all about changed lives — and He’s changing the lives of Pal men, women and children.
“And we get to watch it happen!” wrote Chris and Maggie Hostetter.
More to Come
It’s not just the Pal people whose lives are being changed. And it’s not just the Hostetters that get to watch such things happen.
All of us have the privilege of watching this happen across the globe, not only as it happens in remote tribal villages, but also in indigenous communities living on the edge of civilization. Pray for us as we continue to position ourselves to best reach our changing world.
