A pre-evangelism week for PNG for Christ held recently in Gogo, zone three of Elimbari district (Eastern Highlands Simbu Mission), attracted more than 100 attendees each night, including members from multiple denominations, and culminated in baptisms and a series of commitments.

Themed Bible i Tok (Bible Says), the event featured Pastor Sam Kepa Waine, district director of Elimbari, as the evening guest speaker. Pastor Waine focused on clarifying biblical truths and addressing common misunderstandings. He emphasised the importance of personal faith, urging attendees to believe in what is written in the Bible.

Morning sessions were led by Minister Kiagi Abel, who conducted a 10 Days of Prayer program, drawing participation from both church members and the wider community.

On Sabbath, the ministerial secretary of the Eastern Highlands Simbu Mission, Pastor Paul Lipu, led the divine service, culminating in the baptism of a Baptist pastor and his wife who had attended the Adventist church for the previous seven Sabbaths.

As a result of the appeals made during the week-long program, many expressed their wish to be baptised. Four members from other Sunday-keeping churches publicly committed during the week and another 70 individuals answered the appeal after the baptism on Sabbath. The baptisms are expected to take place at the upcoming PNG for Christ event in April.
