TWO pioneer missionaries of the Christian Mission Fellowship church returned home for a short break after spending four years in the mission fields of Tanzania, Africa.
Pr Kenny James from Wakunai, Bougainville and Israel Kolita from Matalau village, East New Britain province, were special guests during the CMF churches annual regional conferences held in Port Moresby, Rabaul and Lae.
At the Lae conference held last week, both pastors shared their experiences serving among the Wasi and the Massai tribes of Tanzania.
It was a challenge for them and they were proud to announce that so far, 92 churches have been planted and their missionary work was progressing well.
“The mission field needs strong people who are focused and patient without forcing ones’ way in,” Pr Kolita said.
Pr James added that in order to change the local people, you must love them and preach where they are, because of their nomadic lifestyle”.
Both missionaries thanked the church in PNG for their prayers and financial support which has helped them in their missionary work in a foreign land.
