Group hosts dedication, repentance crusade


A BACK-TO-SCHOOL and repentance crusade was recently held in the Dei, Western Highlands.
The crusade was held to unite and encourage students to put God first in their education and give priority to their studies.
It was also for the unemployed youths to surrender, refrain from illegal activities and participate in church and agricultural activities.
About 10 churches from Keremunga village, comprised of different denominations, formed a group known as House of Unity and hosted the crusade.
House of Unity secretary Peter Okpul said Prime Minister James Marape had prioritised education and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and to support that, churches had a duty to start reaching out and changing lives in the villages.
“We have to start from the bottom up,” he said.
“People must not ridicule it, together, we will achieve the vision.”
Councillor Michael Ulana said everyone in communities around the country must work together and participate in church activities to help change the attitude of youths who were involved in illegal activities.
He said education was an important priority for every family.
Ulana said the people from Kumunga and Pirika organised the crusades and many youths involved in illegal activities have surrendered witnessed by the police.
