Pulu near Karuku

The chief priest of the village of Karuku, Sumba was miraculously cured of a life-threatening disease earlier this year through the prayers of CFTIW-supported worker Sem Hungababa from the nearby village of Pulupanjang. He told Sem:

“Your God is stronger than my god.” and he accepted Christ! Seeing this, eight families have also accepted Christ and Sem expects more to follow!

Later this month, our Region Coordinator Chuck Dupe will lead a ceremony to pull the katoda stick from the ground and begin the training of the new believers in preparation for their baptism later this year. (The katoda stick is a symbol of idol worship common in animism.)
