Our small tent here has sheltered us from the unfriendly weather of wind, cold and rain over the last five days that we have been here. My heart is at peace now that our time here has not been in vain. We have trained and motivated a really good number of men and w
omen, both young and old in this isolated medically under served community about basic sanitation, health and hygiene. We have trained and motivated every individual to take ownership of their personal, family and community health. We covered most of the topics that cause most sufferings and deaths in our world today. We pray and continue to teach and discuss with the community through our health lesson topics about real causes of diseases. This community likes many other communities throughout PNG that have a very strong amnestic back ground. They believe very strongly that illnesses and deaths are causes by evil spirits. As a result of this belief, the accusations and punishment of innocent people is therefore imminent. Through the power and wisdom of Gods holy spirit, we try creative means and ways to tell the community that the real evil spirits are not spirits of dead people of other evil spirits but instead they are Bacteria, Viruses, Parasites, Fungus etc…. and that these germs are invisible so as the any evil spirit is also invisible. We help them understand that it is only the deception of the evil one to lie to us, to bring disunity, laziness and death. John 10:10 tells us that the devil comes to steal and destroy but the Jesus come to give us life We therefore must no longer believe in the lies of the evil one. Instead we must know that real enemy is the devil and we must by all means know how to prevent these germs from making us sick. May all the glory and honor be to our great and mighty King who lives forever? His name is exhausted above all the earth. His name is Jesus.
