Kamano-Kafe Translation and Scripture-Use Team (PNG)
Since 1999, Rich and Joyce Mattocks have served the Kamano-Kafe people group in Papua New Guinea (PNG). God has greatly blessed the team with passionate Kamano-Kafe speaking coworkers. The Kamano-Kafe New Testament was dedicated December 24, 2014. The team is now working on a complete Bible. The entire New Testament and five books of the Old Testament are recorded and on solar-powered audio players. The team has produced multiple teaching booklets, hymn books, and has translated and recorded these videos: “Jesus” film, “The Hope”, "Acts", "Genesis", and “O Papa God”. With God’s clear direction and help, in 2017 the team wrote and filmed an hour-long movie drama on the Christian response to a growing problem of sorcery in PNG. It was filmed in two languages: Kamano-Kafe and Tok Pisin (the trade language). We are thankful for your partnership that helps team members serve with tools that speed up the work: solar panels and batteries, cell phones and computers. Your tithes also help pay for team training, stipends, medical and dental treatment for them and their families, and scholarships for their children to attend school. Thank you for your part on the team to enable the Kamano-Kafe Christians in this ministry.
Solar Powered Audio Scripture Readers (Audibibles, MegaVoices)
The solar-powered audio Scripture player is the stealth evangelism tool. Where there is no electricity, people can recharge these pocket-sized players in the sun for free! We frequently hear stories of people accepting Christ from listening to these players. Each player costs $35. We supply players to a dozen languages in PNG where God’s Word is recorded. Your gift will purchase audio players for the language group with the most urgent need at the time we receive your gift. (Check out the blog page with stories.)
