Vanuatu Tuesday 24th March Update

Before 2

Tanna after 2

Thank you to those who have been able to support the Moderator General’s Appeal for Vanuatu. For those who need it, the link is here

Yesterday Glen Connor left for Vanuatu to talk to leaders of the Presbyterian Church of Vanuatu and to learn first-hand how the Presbyterian Church of Australia can help our oldest Partner Church. This morning John and Kara Dekker left to commence service at the Talua Ministry Training Centre. By all reports Talua escaped the effects of Cyclone Pam relatively unaffected.

A few years ago members of the Presbyterian Church of Australia generously paid for 24,000 Bislama New Testaments to be printed and given away for free. APWM was in talks about printing more Bibles before Cyclone Pam struck. Many people will have lost their Bibles in the cyclone.

One of our recent Workpartners projects was the construction of the Southern Islands Presbytery Bible College on the island of Tanna. The island copped the full fury of the cyclone. The main damage to the building was the verandah as can be seen from these ‘before’ and ‘after’ pictures.

Thank you those who have been praying!
