Monthly Mission Emphasis

In addition to collecting non-perishable items for the Dallas Christian Ministry, each month OSLC emphasizes a different ministry with opportunities with which the congregation can engage through prayer, service, and giving. Each organization bears witness to the love and mercy of God.


     For the month of November, our mission emphasis is Laszlo Mission League. Our Saviour Congregation sponsors two students in Hauna Village, PNG: a boy, Bendomas Roy Wangi, and a girl, Azimah Thomson. Please pray for these children. Their whole village is very poor, but they are overcoming since the missionaries have been there. Shirley Killosky is still there, but is getting ready to retire. They live in the jungle. If the river water gets low or floods, this effects their lives greatly. They fish for meat, use the river for travel, and use its water in many ways. They plant gardens of vegetables that sometimes get washed out or flooded. Sago paste, scraped from the center of a sago log makes staple food. They still live in thatched roof huts, and cook over open fires.

     They have built many buildings for the community: a school, church, medical center, sheds for men to work, such as to use machinery to shell rice to sell, or saw logs to sell. Some of the men go up river as trained teachers to help students in others villages to hear God’s Word and to teach the children the basics of education. 

     The village is Christian and has made a huge difference in the lives of the people. The men no longer go to war with their surrounding tribal peoples, but help them and help in their own village. The families co-operate together to get and prepare food, shelter, and have fellowship. The school teachers tell Bible Stories and sing Christian songs as well as teach the basics of education: reading, writing, and math.
     What a privilege it is to be sponsors for this ministry – LASZLO MISSION LEAGUE, PAPUA NEW GUINEA, HAUNA VILLAGE – and the two students that we sponsor so they can go to school.
