A SEVENTH-day Adventist church pastor has launched his second book, Travel the Journey of Faith: Incredible Stories of Faith.
The book was launched at the Port Moresby National High School last Saturday.
The author, Pr Peter Barnabas Pamula, said the book was his second after Secrets Unveiled, which was launched last year.
He said it took him six months to write his second book.
The first one had been a bit of a struggle and it took him four-and-a-half-years to write.
“Learning from that experience, it took me just six months to write my second book,” Pamula, who is doing his doctoral studies majoring in biblical studies and church history at the Adventist International Institute of Advanced Studies in the Philippines, said.
He said his second book was based on his personal experiences, educational journey and struggles in life.
“The book aims to encourage young people, especially those in secondary and high schools, on how to cope and deal with issues relating to religion, youth, social and life in general,” he said.
“With God everything is possible. A lot of people say sky is the limit but to me God is the limit.”
Pamula said he was propelled to write the book because:
“God chose you on the night of your conception;
“God will bring you through failures and humiliation before he gives you success and honour;
“Discipline is an important ingredient to achieve your dreams, and, Money does not answer all the questions.”
Pamula, from Kumbame village, Ialibu district, Southern Highlands, said he was working on his third book.
“The third book will be about faith stories of selected people in PNG and that will include converted prisoners, people with health problems, single parents and students,” he said.
