Thank you all for praying. The first two days have been fairly well attended by about 180 men, women, and children. It is nice to see believers bringing friends and family to the teaching. It was especially nice to see Jethro here the last two days with his wives and children. This morning he came with his children to help get the tractor up and running again and to cut the airstrip. He showed us his child who was born prematurely and considered “rubbish” by his wife when she saw how tiny the little girl was. Jethro insisted that she take care of the baby though because it was a life that God had given. The baby was so small that she could hold it in one hand and wash it with the other. She is the one with the orange shirt in this picture.
We are concerned that most of those who expressed a strong desire to hear this teaching have not been present the first two days for various reasons. Pray that they will come tomorrow and be faithful for the rest of the teaching.
Pray for the teachers too. Yesterday Willis’s eye was injured by a branch which really concerned us all when his eye was covered with blood. Thankfully today he is doing much better again and there is no apparently long-term damage. We know there will be more attempts by Satan to prevent people from hearing God’s Word here in this village
Thanks again for praying.

Dear praying friends,
Please be praying as the Wusuraambya believers begin a new outreach into the village where we live on Monday afternoon, April 16. There has been much anticipation in the village after the believers came together last weekend to build a large shelter for the teaching.
- Pray for the believers as they prepare to co-teach through the Bible beginning with creation
- Pray for good and consistent attendance throughout the 3-1/2 months of teaching
- Pray that the unbelievers will recognize their need for Christ
- Pray that Satan would be prevented from interrupting the teaching in any way (previously someone burnt down the teaching house just before the Gospel was presented and many people never returned for the most important part of the teaching)
Thanks for your partnership in seeing our Wusuraambya neighbours freed from Satan’s stronghold.
Serving together in Christ,
Andrew & Cathy Goud
Greetings from the Gouds in Papua New Guinea. We have just heard that the believers in Wusuraambya have been welcomed to a Yinowaimwaaru to begin teaching Phase 1 of the Chronological Bible teaching that they first heard in 2005. This is bout an hour walk from home for the believers. Friday, March 5th they will go to build an open shelter for teaching under during the rainy season.
Please be praying for the believers as they share their faith with these people, and pray that the people will be receptive to the truths they are about to hear.
Thanks for praying!
