 A GROUP of overseas youths who were in Waghi Wan village in Anglimp, Jiwaka, spreading the Gospel were farewelled last Saturday.

Locals showed their appreciation by presenting gifts to the youths.

The Kamandaka traditional singsing group livened up the atmosphere.

The nine youths came through Youth With A Mission in United States, Canada and Samoa. They spent seven weeks visiting churches, staging dramas, singing and testifying. 

They conducted sanitation and hand washing education at certain schools in Anglimp and Avi.

Madan Christian Life Centre pastor James Kotil described their visit as a blessing in Madan and Waghi Wan area.

Dopdop One councillor Kur Pepa thanked the Madan Coffee and Tea Plantation owner Dr Larry Hull for making possible the visit.

He said Hull had provided a clinic, well and library books.

He said God was at work in the Waghi Wan area by helping them both spiritual and physically.

Pepa urged people to turn away from sin and implement what they had been taught.

He said that it was time for people to change their attitude and look positively to excel in their lives.
