Ukarumpa and Aiyura Valley

Ukarumpa is SIL's center of opperations in Papua New Guinea and where we live and work.

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 - May 2018 | Thank you for praying!

And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. - Romans 8:26 (NLT)

Dear Friends and Family,
Thank you so much for praying for our family, especially for Johanna as she had hernia surgery last Saturday, May 12th. The surgery went really well and the doctor told us after surgery that the hernia was much bigger than he thought it was, so it was good we had that taken care of before we return to Papua New Guinea (PNG). Please pray that Johanna continues to recover.

We also want to praise God with you and thank Him for his provision as He has allowed us to purchase tickets to return to our ministry in PNG in July. Please pray for us as we start to get ready to return and say many goodbyes here in Colombia.

This coming Sunday, we will be visiting one of the churches that partners with us here in Bogota and sharing with them about our work in PNG. Also, on May 24th, Johanna will be sharing in another partnering church at their Ladies meeting. Pray that God will use us and that we will give Him the glory for all He has done, is doing, and will do!

Thank you for your love and care for our family. Every month we are humbled by your prayers, generosity, encouragement, and support. We know that we would not be able to do our work in PNG if it wasn’t for your faithful partnership with us

Love from rainy Bogota,

Kurt and Johanna (for Kassia, Lukas, and Matthias) Metzger
