Letters from Tribes in PNG

Here are three letters written from tribal people groups in Papua New Guinea to Brad Buser (a missionary of New Tribes Mission).

The Anu People

“Dear Brad Buser,

Hello, good morning. I’m Eipen Eino, I’m the leader of the Anu village. Now I’m carrying a big heavy about getting a missionary…please us dark ones of Anu are truly afraid for our lives. I’ve also got a worry for my friends here who live in darkness.

So then I’ve got this worry…are you able to come and wash my eyes so I can see or not? Do you ones have a worry for those of us in the dark or not?

I think we stink like rotten meat or what? Is that why you send no one to plant a seed in our Anu place?

This is not new, for 18 years we have carried this heavy for nothing.”

The Sabimin People

“To: Brad Buser

Yes, brother Brad, now I’m here writing to you, do you remember our talk? Our meeting? You are a leader, you must listen well. If you’re a real leader you’ll help us, that is why we’re talking to you.

Are you a trick leader or what? … If you are a leader, listen to us ones of Sabamin. We try and try but you don’t listen… Are you of God or crazy? Everywhere in every place the talk of God is there… Why not us? Talk to the leaders of your church and send us someone. Don’t give your backsides to us, are you clear on what I’m saying here or not? We have a huge desire for a missionary to come and live in our village and jungle.

I’m Alus Nekibisap the writer”

The Sinou People

“What’s going on? Where is our help? Have you forgot about us? We of Sinou have not forgot about wanting a missionary, we cary a huge heavy constantly about this.

We carry this heavy cause we fear for our lives. We know that the Bible says that you should come and tell us. Us dark ones need it… how will we go to God’s place if not? Only those who know will go, how will we know if no one teaches us?

That is the whole of my worry, we want a missionary now to give us God’s talk.”

Then Jesus said to his disciples,
“The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few;
therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”

Matthew 9:37,38
