Word Made Flesh Papua New Guinea seeks to love and obey Jesus by facilitating rural communities in the Sepik and Sandaun Provinces of PNG in addressing spiritual, intellectual, and physical needs.


We are called to respond in obedience to the incarnational gospel of Jesus Christ – to enter into holistic relationship with communities and participate in His work of reconciliation and discipleship.

The Field

With one of the worst infrastructures in the world, Papua New Guinea’s many rural communities often have little or no access to medical aid, educational resources, or opportunities for economic growth. In addition, although PNG has a long history with Christian Missions, geographic isolation and language barriers have left many people in spiritual confusion. We hope to act as a catalyst, encouraging and facilitating rural communities in PNG to utilize their own expertise and potential in pursuing community health and spiritual growth.

Baku village, among the Yamano people, has invited us to join them in the work of completing a translation of the Bible in their own language. They are also eager to address economic, educational, and physical health needs in their community. Several neighboring language communities have asked for but never received aid in translating the Bible into their language. Most of the surrounding language groups do not even have a writing system in their languages and have remained trapped in spiritual, educational, and economic poverty. By God’s grace, we will partner with the village of Baku both to address the felt needs of the Yamano people and to reach out to neighboring language communities.

Join Us in Prayer

Please pray for our family for spiritual and physical health.

Please pray for Clemence Komnapi (the local pastor whose vision inspired this partnership) and for his family.

Please pray for the Yamano villages that God would raise up people who are willing to participate in the hard work of growth. Pray that God’s Spirit would be at work to free people from the fear of sorcery and to empower them to work together towards common goals.
