SEVENTH-day Adventist (SDA) Church world president elder Ted Wilson from the United States will visit Papua New Guinea in May.
This was confirmed by the SDA Western Highlands Mission on Friday in Mt Hagen.
SDA Western Highlands Mission president Ps Malachi Yani with the church’s general secretary Ps Luke Nathan, health director Anita Kup, communications director Ps Solomon Paul and land and project manager Bob Kuglame confirmed that preparations were underway to receive Wilson in the country.
Yani said the church was now working on hosting major programmes in health, baptism and evangelism to prepare for Wilson’s visit.
He said Wilson would preach in Minj, Jiwaka, from May 1-16.
He said the two-week stay of the world president would strengthen the faith of the country’s Adventists.
Yani said part of Wilson’s itinerary would include a visit to the mega health clinic, baptising of 100,000 people, completing the Church radio station (FM 107:5), running the community rehabilitation programmes, evangelism and other Church activities.
He said the Church was expecting that the two weeks (May 1-16) would see Christians from all over the world participating.
Yani said this was a big event they were hosting and invited the sick and those that needed spiritual healing to not to miss out but receive what would be shared through the Word of God.
