Pastor says country is at crossroads

PAPUA New Guinea is at the crossroads whether to embrace or forsake God, an Australian Revival Centres visiting pastor said.
Australian Revival Centres (ARC) Brisbane leader Rom Hafling said this to more than 20,000 Christians from the Revival Centres PNG (RCPNG) in Gembogl, Chimbu, at the opening of an Easter camp that coincided with the opening of a new fellowship hall and the 16th national pastors conference.
“This country is at the crossroads. Will you choose God’s ways and honour him or deny the problems you face here are spiritual?” Hafling asked.
“If you turn to God, the many problems facing you will be disposed off at the might of God.”
Hafling commended the RCPNG and its founder Pr Godfrey Wippon for “giving up his country, province, tribe and relatives to embrace God  and to revive his spirit among the people”.
“You are the fruits of his ministry which reveals the power of God,” Hafling said.
He challenged four regional pastors and their assistants to remain united to carry on spreading the good news of Jesus Christ to the people.
The Australian team were special guests at the opening of the national conference.
