Mougulu, Papua New Guinea:
Recently MAF had the privilege of transporting 4,000+ copies of the complete Bible, translated into the local Bedamuni language to Mougulu, Western Province, PNG.
“This Bible is a joint life’s work of my wonderful parents Tom and Salome Hoey,” says Sally Lloyd who with her husband, Ian, are currently living and working at Mougulu.
She continues, “[my parents] have worked not only on practical development aspects such as airstrips, schools, and health clinics, but also on preserving and promoting the Indigenous language and much more.
The complete Bible translation was dedicated in 2001, but copies have run out, so they have arranged 4,000 new prints. There are many more translated materials prepared, booklets, messages, health materials, etc. from their home in Australia.
Thanks to all who helped to make this possible. The people are very happy!”
MAF Pilots Timon Kundig and Arjan Paas received one Bedamuni re-print Bible from Sally Lloyd on behalf of MAF “as an example of how the support helps our remote communities, and to acknowledge the importance of God’s Word to them in their own language.”
Tom Hoey in his email to all the supporters of this ministry:
It is with great joy and thankfulness to the Lord that we advise you all, of the first arrivals of the new reprints of the Bedamuni Bible at Mougulu. The complete arrival is still in process but is very much in sight.
In Matthew 21:42, the Lord speaks of the most marvellous of God’s many marvelous works, (the first coming of our Lord Jesus Christ), but in a lesser way, we think we can borrow the words of the Lord Jesus Himself in regard to His enabling in the matter of the Bedamuni Reprints at present arriving at Mougulu – “it is the Lord’s doing and it is marvelous in our eyes.”
How blessed we are to be a blessing to others, through Christ.
We thank our MAF family for their prayers, donations, and support in activating these flights!
