In 1994, two volcanoes erupted near the Bible translation and language development regional centre office in Rabaul, Papua New Guinea. When the volcanoes erupted, the devastation was staggering. It buried the area in almost two metres of ash. The centre was later relocated to Kokopo where it is still active today. The impact of that eruption is still being felt but it didn’t stop the language development work from being done. Last week, church and university leaders gathered to see how they could get more engaged in the language development and Bible translation process. Many ideas were circulated and the overwhelming response was positive. Pray that these leaders can pursue this much needed work in Papua New Guinea.
