Tuesday the 4th Chapel

SAMSUNG            A couple days ago I posted a story from PIU teacherSAMSUNG            Jim Sawyer about our new student from Papua (the former Irian Jaya), Harnolx. You can find that here. Tuesday Harnolx, along with PIU teacher Ken Dixon, were our chapel speakers. Ken and Harnolx first met when Ken was a teacher at TITIP, a Wycliffe college in Indonesia, and Harnolx was a student. Since 2011 PIU has had an agreement with TITIP that allows students from Indonesia to study at PIU through a distance education program. Harnolx is the first student from Indonesia to come to Guam and study on campus. As he shared, he is a “test student” to see if it will work out, culturally, financially etc.,  for other students to follow in his footsteps to come study on the Guam campus of PIU.


Ken gave us some background about the region and history of the work in Indonesia. Harnolx shared about his personal testimony, his passions in ministry and about the culture of the church and nation.


We also had a good music and prayer time with a special time of prayer for Harnolx and the churches of Papua and the nation of Indonesia


Here are some of the statistics Harnolx and Ken shared about Indonesia. There is a huge need there, and we look forward with prayer and anticipation to see how God will work through PIU, Liebenzell and Wycliffe missions, and the churches of Micronesia to meet this need.
