Main Stories

AN American couple who spent more than three decades in Jiwaka will leave for home next week.
Doctor Jim and Kathy Radcliffe spent 32 and a half years at Kudjip where Jim worked as a surgeon.
They leave for the United States on Dec 24.
The Kudjip Knox Church and the Nazarene Health Ministries held farewell services for them.
Kathy shared with the congregation how God called them to Papua New Guinea and helped them through this vocation.
“God brought us to this country and wrote a beautiful story of our lives. Heaven is our destination in this story,” she told the congregation.
“What would be your story? Do you want to write your own story or let God write it for you?
“I encourage you all to allow God to write your story.
“The story that God writes for you will be very colourful and interesting, no doubt about that.”
The Radcliffes have six children – two born in the United States and four in Papua New Guinea.
All the children are in the United States.
Their eldest son, Dr Benjamin, will return to Kudjip to serve as a surgeon.
Many have thanked the couple for their services.
Community-based health care national director for Nazarene Health Ministries Matthew Galman thanked the couple for their service to the country.
“They have touched many people who have given their lives to Jesus,” Galman said.
“Heaven will remember and honour them, so do we.”
