Despite the high rate of illiteracy being perceived as a barrier for the vast majority of rural Papua New Guineans, MAF Technologies strives to minister God’s Gospel by supplying hundreds of audio Bibles to remote areas of Papua New Guinea through its Church partners like (FNBC), Mission Organizations, and also through the Bible boxes distribution via MAF planes’ so remote lives can access God’s word.

The Fellowship of National Bible Churches (FNBC) was behind the initiative of conducting comprehensive study for God’s word using the Planim Post chronological teaching, which is available through the Audio Bible. Thanks to the donated and subsidized Bibles over 170 locals from Nandani, Okainawa and Yavaipo village in Menyamya and Bulolo district who participated in the Planim Pos study program were baptized after giving their lives to the Lord. Even families of participants who attended the study had their lives impacted.

Kachiwi Holisa, a believer from Okainawa who was also baptised, professed that her life was renewed in Christ through this study. “My life is not perfect, and I am a sinful woman. I thought no one could save me. But as I began to read and comprehend the Bible through the teachings, I realized that only Jesus can save me. And through his death on the cross, my sins were gone and now I am free,”she said.

This study has led to communities being rejuvenated and families being restored as they meditate on God’s word daily having access to the print and audio Bibles.

Amongst the 170 people who also got baptised was a young man who in the past struggled with drug addiction found salvation and gave his life to the Lord.

“I would smoke drug (marijuana) hang out on the streets doing illegal activities with others, believing that the substance would save me. I did a lot of things that the Lord is not proud of. But, just a day ago, I received Jesus through God’s teaching and quit everything, and I am now willing to follow Jesus Christ.” Says the young man.

Pastor Robert Hane, FNBC missionary and Planim Pos facilitator, said the ministry had just begun and he hoped the collaboration with MAF Technologies would continue, as there are many people in rural communities who struggle to fully comprehend God’s word.

“The printed and audio Bibles have been an instrumental tool that assisted the participants to comprehend the word of God and I am truly grateful to MAF Technologies for their ongoing support,” he said.

Matthew 28:19-20 

“Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
