Miniafia New Testaments from the dedication in 2010

"God is a Miniafia Man," the loincloth-clad speaker exulted! "Before He was English, and American, and Australian. But today He has become Miniafia!"

{Metzger Ministry Update} April 2014 | "PNG Homebound"

The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need. – Psalm 23:1 (NLT)

Dear Friends and Family,

Thank you for your love and care for our family! Every month we are humbled by your generosity, encouragement, and prayers.


(Enjoying some time in the park with our nieces and nephew)

Praise God that our visas to return to Papua New Guinea (PNG) arrived in the mail last Friday! We are also rejoicing in the fact that we have gained new partners in ministry and some of our continuing partners have increased their financial support. Today we bought our tickets to return to PNG in July! Please pray for us as we are sorting and packing the things that we will need to ship to PNG for our next 4 year term in the field. Our belongings will be going to North Carolina at the end of April and from where they will be shipped to PNG in May!


We need to increase our support by:

     $250 per month
