She extends her hands to the spinning staff, and her hands hold the spindle. Proverbs 31:19
“I am thankful for this training because now I can help my husband in his administrative role as Eastern Highlands Provincial Overseer for Christian Life Center” (CLC). Ps.Alice Luma
Pastor Alice Luma was one of the participants that completed the one week Basic Computer Training (BCT) that Learning Technologies PNG team conducted for the Easter Highlands Pastors. She sat alongside her husband to successfully complete the one week course.
Pastor Nave Luma is also the Senior Pastor for Faniufa Church, where the BCT course was conducted. The above statement by Alice Luma reminds us of the perfect wife that Proverbs 31: 10 – 31 describes. Verse 19 describes the use of hands to bring blessings to the household just as Pastor Alice described during the graduation ceremony that she will assist her husband to type letters and draw up Church programs when her husband is busy in his overseer duties.
This are exciting times for us to witness Scriptures like Proverbs 31:19 become a reality to roles of women involved in ministry in today’s rapid changing world.
She added that she is really grateful to the Church leadership for allowing women to take this needed computer course. I thought BCT was for men only and to be in one is a a special opportunity.
There were five other women leaders who took this computer course with Alice. She appreciated the LTPNG team for the training given as it will also help her in her role as Eastern Highlands Provincial Women’s Leader.
The majority of the pastors that attended the BCT were from Bena district and this is what the Bena District Overseer had to say about the training. Pastor Simon Suya said; “As a district we had secured some funding to purchase computers for ministry, however we did not realize that BCT needs to be done before the purchasing of computers; so this training is perfect timing for me and my pastors”.
As a team we are happy for Pastor Simon and his men because we did discover from other pastors in our previous BCT training, that a pastor had a computer but did not know how to operate it and ended up selling the computer. When BCT started he attended the training but regretted that he sold the computer.
We praise God for this opportunity to assist CLC with BCT because LT’s ministry relationship started back in 2011 with Audio bibles and FCBH Proclaimers. It was CLC that the Lord used to partner with LTPNG to do awareness for audio bibles and their impact for oral communities.
Pastor Matthew (blind) is from CLC and it was his request in 2011 for solar powered bibles that give us the confirmation to go big into audio bibles.
We continue to thank the Lord for the opportunities to minister to churches here in Eastern Highlands as our immediate supporters and prayer partners to build up our confidence to reach out to other provinces.
We thank the Lord for allowing us to impart basic computer skills to the leadership of CLC here in Eastern Highlands.
Thank you so much for your financial support and prayers as we assist the pastors and Christians in ministry to be equipped in today’s world.
Every time you kneel down to pray a certificate is being printed and signed to be given to a ministry person, God bless you!
