Sweet to the ears

Brandon Buser and family serve in Papua New Guinea and although they are not living among the Biem people they are still very much involved with the Biem church.

For months they had very sparse communication from the church due to their HF Radio breaking. These are hard silences, and they are much in prayer during these

times. Once they were able to get the radio fixed Brandon made a trip to Biem to restore communication and spend time with those in the church.

As Brandon talked with the believers, it was evident that they are still struggling with discouragement and disunity, but there were also signs of faithfulness and growth too. A group of young men and women continue to faithfully disciple the youth in the church…this isn’t a programme that the missionaries spearheaded but is the fruit of selfless service towards the children in the church.

Brandon was asked to attend the ladies Bible study with another elder. Listening to these women discuss 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 was sweet to his ears.

Despite the struggles God works graciously for the good of His children and the glory of His name. Thank you for praying that God would continue to encourage and unify His body on Biem.

The translation of the Biem New Testament has consumed most of their time over many months. It’s roughly 74% completed. Recently, a boat full of Biem brothers travelled to the mainland for a huge translation check that brought eleven more books to conclusion and leaves only two epistles remaining in the overall task.

Pray that the check would yield a faithful Biem translation of His Word.

Thank you for being a part of the work on Biem through prayer it is a tremendous encouragement.
