Adventists among first to respond to Papua New Guinea earthquake

Adventists among first to respond to Papua New Guinea earthquake

Seventh-day Adventists were among the first to respond after a powerful earthquake devastated villages in Papua New Guinea (PNG).

The 7.5 magnitude quake struck the Southern Highlands region of PNG on February 26, with 122 reported deaths. Since then there has been a series of at least 70 aftershocks.

An initial report from oil and gas company ExxonMobil listed the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) as part of the initial assessment team that made one of the first visits to the area.

“Anticipating immediate resource needs, the team delivered essentials, including shelter equipment, water and sanitation support to the Para Health Clinic, which serves the Para, Tokaju and Hides areas,” a media release from the company stated.

Adventist Aviation Services (AAS) in Goroka also posted an update to their Facebook page, outlining the details of their involvement in providing aid.

“The Seventh-day Adventist Church in Papua New Guinea, through its flying program, Adventist Aviation Services PNG, has had the incredible opportunity to be a first responder . . . to the people of PNG most devastated by the earthquake,” the March 6 post said.

“On Thursday, as it became apparent that relief from other sources would not be available for some time, and as our aircraft and crew became available for duty, AAS CEO Captain Jeff Downs began coordinating with Mission Aviation Fellowship International to clearly identify the rural communities most affected by the earthquake.

“By Friday morning, Captain Downs and AAS flight coordinator Samson Nopi were able to purchase more than 13,000 Kina worth of rice, tinned fish and water and, over Friday and Saturday, delivered 850kg of food and water to villages in need.”

In the impacted area—one of the most remote locations in PNG—up to 80 per cent of the houses have been destroyed, along with roads and other infrastructure.

A report prepared by ADRA PNG emergency coordinator Willie Kunsei said about 143,000 people have been identified as needing urgent humanitarian assistance.

“The people requiring urgent assistance also face the immediate risk of displacement and will have lost most of their assets with short- and long-term consequences to their lives and livelihoods,” noted Mr Kunsei.

Food is scarce, with 64,000 people at risk of extreme food insecurity. Most gardens were destroyed by the landslides and, in some cases, totally covered by landslides.

As aftershocks continue to hit the Highlands, the PNG Government is relying on foreign aid to get relief to the affected areas. ADRA and AAS in PNG will continue monitoring the situation, and working with the Government and other agencies to provide support to affected villages.

“Please, Church family around the world, pray for your Seventh-day Adventist friends and the people of the Papua New Guinea Highlands,” said the communication team from the Western Highlands Mission.

15 SDA Church members die in Rwandan after being struck by lightning,Ted N.C. Wilson reacts

Ted N.C. Wilson, president of the Adventist Church, offers prayers and condolences for the injured and the families of those lost.

Lighting struck a Rwandan church on March 10, killing 15 members. More than 130 others attending divine services at the Gihemvu Seventh-day Adventist Church were taken to an area hospital and other health centers. Some of those treated have since been released.

Church leaders and government officials, including Abidan Ruhongeka, president of the South Rwandan Field and Mureshyankwano Marie Rose, the governor of the Southern Province of Rwanda, attended a special burial ceremony held Sunday, March 11. Rose offered condolences to the families of the deceased and declared that the district of Nyaruguru will pay the medical bills of those still receiving treatment.

During the ceremony, Ruhongeka shared, “We commiserate with the families of the deceased and those affected during these hard times. Let everybody remember that when Jesus comes again, those died in Him shall resurrect.” He said that the church provided coffins to bury the deceased and they are providing support and assistance to those affected by this tragedy.

Ted. N.C. Wilson, president of the General Conference of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church expressed his sympathy for the church in Rwanda on his public Facebook page.

“We have received alarming word that this last Sabbath, March 10, at the Gihemvu Seventh-day Adventist Church in the southern district of Nyaruguru in the country of Rwanda, at least 15 of our Seventh-day Adventist members died and others were injured during a traumatic lightning strike on the church. Our hearts go out to our dear church members in Rwanda who have suffered this very difficult loss. What a tragedy to have such a strange occurrence of lightning striking during a church service.

On behalf of the world family of Seventh-day Adventists circling the globe, we have offered our deep sympathy and Christian love to all our members in the Rwanda Union which is in the East-Central Africa Division and especially to the families who have lost loved ones and to those who were injured from this traumatic event.

Truly God will provide the comfort and encouragement during this trying ordeal. We have encouraged our church members in Rwanda to keep their eyes focused on the Lord and His soon return when He will bring to life all those who have died in Him. What a hope we have for the future. Please pray with us for our church members and especially the families affected as they look to the Lord for their encouragement and continue with the strong emphasis on Total Member Involvement. Let us pray that each church member in Rwanda may feel the comforting and guiding hand of the Holy Spirit during this difficult time” (quoted from facebook.com/PastorTedWilson/).

Pathfinder Camporee held completely on water in Papua New Guinea (Photos)

Pathfinder Camporee held completely on water in Papua New Guinea (Photos)

Camporee in Papua New Guinea first to be held completely on water. In what is believed to be a world first for a Pathfinder camporee, the entire event was held on water.

A specially-constructed pontoon, afloat on the Sepik River in Papua New Guinea, was the site for the week-long camporee, held in December 2017. The 50m x 40m structure accommodated the 350 Pathfinders and staff, including 47 tents.

Fittingly, the theme of the camporee was “Floating in the arms of God”. Four Pathfinder clubs took part in the 22 water activities.

Patrick Maru, youth coordinator for the Amunti District, Sepik Mission, said planning for the event began three years ago. He wanted to make a change to the usual style of Pathfinder camping.

“The program was officially opened by our youth director, Pastor Missikaram Guguna, assisted by guest speaker Pastor Lessley Yamahune, stewardship director for the Sepik Mission, and escorted by the ‘crocodile man’, symbolizing the Sepik River people,” Mr Maru said.

Despite a positive start, the camporee suffered a serious setback early on the third day when a large thunderstorm struck.

“The rain started pouring heavily and the wind blew mightily, breaking down all our tents,” Mr Maru said. “Leaders were running here and there with their torches flashing, checking all the kids.”

“I was recalling the Bible story about Jesus and the storm and that gave peace. That cold rainy windy night, I cried to Him for help.”

The storm was so powerful that large bush ropes and bamboo posts holding the pontoon in position were broken, causing it to begin moving. Fortunately it remained intact and drifted about 300m before coming to rest in a bay. Later that morning two outboard canoes pushed the pontoon back to its original position.

“Pathfinders and leaders have seen the mighty hand of God during our one-week camp . . . and these Pathfinders will have a story to tell to their kids in the future,” Mr Maru said.

By the end of the week 47 Pathfinders had been baptised in a baptismal pool in the centre of the pontoon.

South Pacific Division youth director Dr Nick Kross said it was a unique event.

“It may well be the first time in the world that a Pathfinder camporee has been held on water,” he said.

Childhood & Early Life

Ellen G. White was born to Robert Harmon, a farmer and Eunice Harmon, in the village of Gorham located in Cumberland Country, Maine.
Ellen and her twin sister Elizabeth were born on November 26, 1827. She lived with her family and seven siblings on a small farm near a village in Gorham and helped with the family, hat making business.

At the age of nine, Ellen was running towards home with her sister Elizabeth and another friend when an older classmate shouted some angry words and threw a stone that hit her in the face which severely disfigured her nose and left her in coma for several weeks, owing to serious head injuries. This occurred while she was living in Portland, Maine, and probably attending the Bracket Street School.

At the age of 12, she attended ‘The Methodist camp meeting’, a Protestant Christian organization and converted to a Protestant Christian on June 26, 1842, baptized by John Hobart.

  • Contemporary adaptations
  • Because many younger readers report finding the original language old-fashioned and hence challenging to read, several modern adaptations of White’s books have been produced which update and simplify the language. Editors have tried to preserve the original meaning.[12]

A Call to Stand Apart, an adaptation and compilation of various topics

Adaptations of the 5-volume “Conflict of the Ages” series have been commissioned by the General Conference to complement the Cornerstone Sabbath School lessons in 2007–2011. They are aimed at younger readers:

  • The Beginning of the End, an adaptation of Patriarchs and Prophets. Pacific Press; publisher’s page
  • Royalty and Ruin, an adaptation of Prophets and Kings. Pacific Press; publisher’s page
  • Humble Hero, an adaptation of The Desire of Ages. Pacific Press; publisher’s page
  • Unlikely Leaders, from The Acts of the Apostles. Pacific Press; publisher’s page
  • Love under Fire, from The Great Controversy. Pacific Press; distributor’s page
