“I believe it is the will of God for NHM to have an active discipleship program,” shared Matthew Galman, Coordinator for Community Based Healthcare in Papua New Guinea. “What makes NHM a very special place to live and work  is that it has an active internal discipleship program where people not only serve through health care but no matter who they are or what they do in NHM, they are being reached and discipled spiritually.”

NHM Leadership met last year and made the decision to divide the entire NHM staff into three groups, and begin holding spiritual formation sessions for these groups.   The first session was held May 14-17, 2015.  Two additional sessions will be forthcoming, so that every staff member of the hospital can participate.

We are so thankful to the Management Team for making this possible, as well as to Tininga Companies, Mt. Hagen, for donations to cover much of the costs of this event.

May God receive all of the glory!
