The Gwahatike Project was a project that Evan and I had the opportunity to go document in May. It was located in the Saidor area which is near the coastal city of Madang. We road a 30 minute plane ride to Saidor, and then an hour bus ride up into the mountains. We went along with our friend Jon Jagt and his family. Jon is a software developer on our center that works as a facilitator helping the project along. The team is made up of 4 Papua New Guinean translators who have received the word in their language, and are now working to give the word to others in neighboring language groups. Some of these guys have to walk as much as a day to get to the language group that they are translating for, and have committed to learn their language and translate it into the Word of God for them. This is exactly why we exist, to disciple Papua New Guineans to go out into other neighboring language groups that need the word of God and translate the Bible for them. It was so inspiring getting to see the translators at work, and how the Gwahatike translation affected the community. Here are pictures from my time there.
