HELP Ministry International Foundation (HMIF) from Simbu province has established a new prayer centre at Korofeigu village in the Unggai-Bena district, Eastern Highlands province.
Work on the new centre started last month with a ground breaking-ceremony done by the ministry’s elders.
HMIF leader Paul Herman presented K15,000 to obtain a piece of land to set up the centre for interdenominational churches in EHP.
Mr Herman told more than 100 Christians who gathered to witness the ground-breaking, that God had given man numerous endowments and one was help.
He said HMIF was established in 2007 and aimed to help and provide facilities such as a prayer centre, Christian conference room, gospel studio and Christian radio station to help Christians pray and spread the gospel.
“So far, we have a centre at Simbu with well-equipped facilities that benefit most of the interdenominational churches in our province,” Mr Herman said, adding that EHP was second and third would be in the new Jiwaka province.
He said the aim and vision was to ensure that all provinces in PNG had a prayer centre so that people could realise the importance of prayer.
This was one way to help Christians and churches to spread the gospel to people, he added.
HMIF senior pastor Barry Kupo said with the establishment of the prayer centre, every person in a community could be changed.
He said the Government could address health issues such as cholera, malaria, TB and so on, but it could not find solutions to social problems like rape, murder, and prostitution.
“The best way to solve such problems is through establishment of such prayer centres nationwide to ensure people changed their attitudes and go deep into prayer.” Pr Kupo said.
“We have to really look at the root cause of the current issues,” he said.
The prayer centre was established to pray for our nation to walk on the right track and give good ideas to our leaders to deliver better services to people.
