More than 800 people have been baptized after a three-week evangelistic series in Papua New Guinea, and more baptisms are expected next month.
Australian evangelist Gary Webster led the meetings, titled “Ancient Mysteries Reveal the Future,” in the country’s capital, Port Moresby, and the program was uplinked via satellite to more than 230 sites across the territory of the Adventist Church’s Central Papua Conference.
Thousands more Click TV subscribers watched from home in Papua New Guinea and other places in the South Pacific.
“The messages brought hope and motivation for change in young and old, among believers, nonbelievers and many other people from different walks of life,” the Central Papua Conference said in a statement.
Pastors have been busy conducting baptisms since the program ended on March 26. At least 800 people have been baptized, including local leaders, believers from other denominations, high-profile community figures, former Adventists, couples, families, and students. More on Adventist Review
