God’s Providence

On the 9th September, Sani Rambi a member of parliament representing the Mul Baiyer electorate  of western highland province visited the nursing college to sponsor our final year students to work in his electorate. His electorate is one of the pilot district to build community health post as part of the national health plan for the country. Four health facilities are under construction. He gave K23,000.00 to sponsor eight final year students. When they graduate they will go and serve his electorate.

In the midst of the discussion we walk over to see student’s computer lab and saw the need to help! He said,  “He’ll give K20,000.00 for 10 computers”. It amazes us to see how our LORD continues to  provide! Our Lord is still the PROVIDER!

Call to Mission

Junior Kumie is a young lad from Whagi valley of Western Highlands Province. He graduated from Nazarene Nursing College in 2008. he had a CALL to serve Salvation Army health ministry. They posted him to one of the remote part of central province. This province is located in the coastal area of Papua New Guinea. Good road network system is lacking in that part of the country. Most of the time health workers walk to carry out their health extension programs. He walks 3-4 hours to see the sick patients, other places are 3 days and nights walk. When he reaches the villages, people would literally cry when they see such a young person going into their villages to help them. (In PNG most service providers would refuse to go rural areas to serve the people). As part of their appreciation they would bring food to him.

He walks with mosquito nets as this part of the country has more malaria incidences and risk snake bites, Papuan Black is a poisonous snake and is commonly found in that province. In spite of the difficulties he has been faithful to HIS CALL! His parents saw the risk his son was taking and they expressed concern over his safety and he responded, ” Nazarene Nursing College lit the candle and told us to go and “LIGHT THE WORLD”, people need us and we have a Call to Mission before us, we need to be obedient to HIS CALL” God will take care of us.

In spite of difficulties in his work, he has been faithful to the Call and the Lord elevated him to the next level, he was accepted into the PNG Army has a medical personnel. The latest development is.. he will be heading to US for further studies through Army program.

Praise be to God for what HE is doing in the lives of our young people such as Junior!

NCON Computer Miracle

We were told by the Nursing Council that the College must have a computer lab for it’s library.  The Management Team was worried.  NCON didn’t have the money, nor the expertise to set it up.  Fortunately, the Principal, Mr. White Kintak had a lot of faith and went forward.  Mr. White started with a bold move – instead of trying to scrounge together some used computers… he ordered computer tables to be built and we all prayed.  Below are a couple of the e-mails Mr. White has sent the past few months on how God worked everything out for them (with some editing/additions for clarification).

March 2011

Family in Christ,
NCON was building 30 computer tables for students in the last 4 weeks. It will be completed this week.  Someone asked, where will the computers come from, the other person answered, “God will provide, we’ll have to continue build the tables”.
This week brother Baru (NHM), Dr. Becky (CBHC), Cathy (NHM Finance) were attending CMC highlands regional meeting in Wabag.  The meeting was opened by Enga Governor who is a strong supporter of Church health services in his province. During the break Becky and I were casually talking to him and we gave him a copy of the letter I sent earlier (trying to raise funds for the computers).  As we were talking he asked, how many computers we needed and quickly wrote some notes on the paper and asked his advisor, “how much does each computer cost”?   The advisor said, “about K3,000.00”. He said, “I will buy you 10 computers for the Nursing college!”

For your information, Enga is a different province, we are in Western Highlands.  Almost always, governors spend all their resources in their own province not somewhere else!

Our God is the PROVIDER! We Praise him for this development and our gratitude to you all for your Prayers.

August 2011:

CON got its computers for the students and needed someone to install them. And this week a W&W team member (from Arizona) who is specialist in IT came at the right time. He is not only helping in installing programs and networking but is teaching Ps Agus computer skills (Rev. August is the pastor who teaches lay-ministry training to the nursing students) . Another member of the W&W team is helping with the drilling of holes. We have seen our Almighty’s HAND through donations of funds for students’ computers, seen HIM working through our sister institution (Christian Leaders Training College) that ordered good computers from overseas at a reasonable price for us, we continue to see HIM using HIS servants to move this project forward!

Conclusion:

As a side note/explanation, the IT man who ended up helping was Phil Kaiser.  He had just had a slow recovery from an ankle surgery and complications before coming to PNG.  He used a wheelchair through airports and is walking with a cane here… one might look at his leg in a brace and wonder what he would do with a Work and Witness Team building a duplex for the hospital and NCON…. however God had the perfect job for him here all lined up for him to come just as the computers arrived!  Also because a partner ministry helped us order, and other missionaries here gave expert advise on what to order they turned the donation for 10 computers into 30 computers!

Tertiary Student’s Christian Fellowship

Every Easter students from all types of tech schools, colleges, and universities from all over PNG get their Christian students together at a Tertiary Student’s Christian Fellowship.  They had 4 regional conferences this year with thousands in attendance.

Many students from Nazarene College of Nursing went and Dr. Scott and Gail Dooley and Dr. Stephanie Doenges, from Nazarene Hospital were invited to be among the guest speakers for the weekend.   At the end of their talk, hundreds came forward to take a vow of sexual purity.

It was a great time of worship, encouragement, and challenge and next year it will be hosted at Kudjip so there is lots of work for our own student leaders.
