Proud moment as village hosts first ordination


Ravuriso Iga became the first person to be ordained as a pastor at Dom Mari village in Abau, Central, last month.
Iga, from Niuiruka village in Rigo, recently graduated from the Rarongo School of Theology and Mission in Rabaul, East New Britain.
Dom Mari villager and pastor Komuna Sogam said he was proud of the villagers effort to hold its first ordination on April 28.
“My little village has only two pastors – me and my younger brother,” Sogam said.
“I was ordained in another village I was serving in at the time, while my brother has not been ordained yet as he is a recent graduate of David Kini Bible College.
“However, we are proud of our small village putting up their hands to host this special event. It is a sign of our maturing in the work of God.”
“I know this is a catalyst for many more servants of God to arise out of Dom Mari, and also for our little church to begin to take on more responsibilities in our circuit.”
The service was conducted by the Bishop of East Central Papua Region of the United Church, Kora Taboro.
The celebrations began two days earlier and culminated with the ordination service.
For Iga, his posting to Dom Mari was his first. He is serving with his wife who is from Abau’s Kapari village.
