First, let me give you a little brief history of the Sandaun district. The Sandaun district, basically, is a remote district that is divided in two by a large mountain range. It is located on the North Coast of PNG up near the border of Indonesia. So in a sense half of the district is coastal while the other half is inland and bush with the mountain range in the middle. It is very hard for the DS to get to all of the district because of the remoteness of the district. Because of this the district has struggled through the years. Three years ago one of our Generals was on the Sandaun district and greatly challenged them. Challenging them that it was time to move ahead, that it was time for the district to grow. Since then they have taken to heart the challenge presented to them. In that three years 10 ordination candidates have been ordained and there will be another this year. The unity of the district has greatly solidified. For all of this we praise the Lord and are grateful for the leadership of the district. Below, is the latest report from Sandaun.
