Mission head congratulates Marape


THE president of the Seventh-day Adventist church in the Pacific has congratulated Member for Tari-Pori James Marape for being elected Prime Minister of Papua New Guinea.
“The South Pacific Division congratulates the Honourable James Marape on becoming the eighth Papua New Guinean prime minister,” pastor Glenn Townend said.
“We pray that James will continue to receive guidance from God as he leads this significant country.
“His Seventh-day Adventist values and heritage will hold him in good standing.”
Marape is an elder of the Korobosea Seventh-day Adventist church in Port Moresby.
He attended Kabiufa Adventist Secondary School in the Eastern Highlands.
The appointment comes after weeks of turmoil that rocked the PNG Government and eventually led to the resignation of former Prime Minister Peter O’Neill.
