Oceania—Teach


Did you know it could cost nearly $50,000 a year to attend a Christian college in Indiana? However, in Papua New Guinea, pastors can go to Christian Union Bible College for only $600 a year. That may sound cheap, but most people in PNG only make about $300 the whole year.

“It might be expensive, but it’s also very important,” missionary Benji Jenkins shared. “More than 800 languages are spoken in PNG, but less than 50 percent of the population can read. That means that many Papua New Guineans can’t read the Bible and that lots of pastors haven’t learned what they need in order to correctly spread God’s Word.”
