Adventists open new church in Imbonggu


SEVENTH-day Adventist South Pacific division youth director Dr Nick Kross returned to Lower Mendi LLG in Imbonggu, Southern Highlands, after four years away to open a new church and baptise four people on Monday.
The Australian first set foot in the province in 2015 where more than 15,000 people gathered for the World Changers Bible Camp at the site of the new church.
“There was no church but the landowners and surrounding communities gave the best hospitality to the youths that gathered in 2015,” he said.
“Within the four years I was away, they established a church with the support of the congregation.”
Kross said the purpose for coming back was because he wanted to see the progress of new Christians, baptise the four new church members, dedicate the new church and launch the second edition of the World Changers Bible.
“God works in miraculous ways to change people’s lives,” he said.
“I am happy to see that the nearby communities such as Pitre Kendo, Tepe, Sumia, Yore and Kengere have been able to join for night bible studies.”
Western Highlands mission youth director Pastor Timothy Michael said they were expecting an increase in their congregation with the new church and Kross’s return.
