Seventh-day Adventist Church members in Lae gathered together to witness the opening of the new branch of the Adventist Book Centre (ABC) by Morobe Mission (MM) in Eriku on June 25.
The newly opened shop was packed with people after the cutting of the ribbon by the general secretary of the Papua New Guinea Union Mission, Pastor Henry Monape.
"It was the mission’s goal and vision, to expose books and other resources, not only to the Adventists, but also to the non-Adventists."
A short devotion was also conducted by Pastor Monape, which ended with a dedicatory prayer.
“It was the mission’s goal and vision, to expose books and other resources, not only to the Adventists, but also to the non-Adventists,” said Densley Daniel, a long time serving shop supervisor for the Morobe Mission ABC shop.
“It was five years (2013–17) since the opening of the first Morobe Mission-run ABC shop in Two Mile, and being the only employee, we have faced many challenges,” said Mr Daniel, “but to God be the glory, everything with God is possible.”
The new branch is located in Eriku, on the upstairs of Chayter House, opposite the Kel’s Second Hand Clothing.
