The Warakum Seventh-day Adventist Church in Western Highlands, Papua New Guinea, has commenced constructing buildings for its three new church plants near Mount Hagen City—Rondon Ridge, Solo Village and Girimba Settlement.
Being the furthest along in its building stage, Rondon Ridge represents a new mission area. While it currently has only five members, the under-construction church building is designed to accommodate more than 100 people.
Funded by Warakum church members and under the leadership of the senior elder, young men from the church are assisting with the construction, aiming to complete the church by the end of December.
“The goal of these new buildings is to nurture members to emulate Christ’s teachings,” said church member William Bokase. “By fostering a sense of community and organising events like prayer meetings, they aim to expand their congregation and make disciples.”
