Seventh-day Adventist tertiary students in Papua New Guinea shared worship with 200 prisoners earlier this month (July 6).
The 124 students from Divine Word University, Madang Teachers College and Madang Technical College visited the Beon Prison Camp as part of their yearly outreach program to encourage the inmates to make decisions for God. A separate worship service was also held for the ladies.
Madang Manus Mission president Pastor Garry Laukei was invited by the students to speak to the inmates. He challenged them to see their stay in prison as an opportunity to make decisions for Jesus.
Sergeant McLean from the Corrective Institutions Service (CIS) in Madang expressed his joy at the visit, stating that the Adventist Church could conduct more programs to help the inmates make good decisions to become better citizens before they leave the prison.
“It was a wonderful time and we enjoyed the program,” Pastor Laukei said.
