Greetings to you all in the precious name of the Lord Jesus Christ from Port Moresby. I pray that this
report finds you well and enjoying our Lordís abundant blessings.
The mission work is going well and we continue to enjoy the Lordís blessings to us here in Papua New
Guinea. We are still having good attendance at our regular services at the Boy Scout Hall with a good
number of visitors present from time to time. We average around 60 to 70 people in the services, for which we are thankful to the Lord. Brother Norman is growing in his preaching and teaching ability and continues in his studies. We are all thankful for him and he is a blessing to the mission work.
The mission has begun a new mission endeavor in an area called Sogeri, which is located about 30 miles or so from Port Moresby in the foothills. Brother Norman has been traveling there on a regular basis to preach and conduct services. Two of our members also live in this area and travel each weekend to Port Moresby to attend services. Please pray with us for the salvation of sinners as Brother Norman has had fairly good response from the community so far.
Presently, I am devoting as much time as possible to translation hoping to finish our current project by
the end of October or early November. It is a very time consuming process, but the Lord is blessing and
progress is being made for which I am thankful. Upon its completion, we plan to put it into book form
using our Risograph duplicator and to distribute it to the pastors and churches as soon as possible. I
continue to be greatly burdened about the need of sound Baptist books in the Melanesian Pidgin
language, and hope to continue with the translation of other materials as the Lord directs.
The churches in the highlands have scheduled a Bible conference to be held during the month of
December of this year. The Kuapia Baptist Church will sponsor it, with the assistance of other local
churches in the area. Both Brother Norman and I are planning to attend as the Lord enables. We are praying for a mutual time of refreshing and encouragement around the word of God and the fellowship of His people.
Our prayers are with you all and also with our country and leaders in regard to the recent terrorist attacks in New York and Washington D.C. Thank you for your continued love, prayers, encouragement, and support on behalf of the Lordís work here in Papua New Guinea.
Love in Christ, Brother Frank James
