Bro. Frank James started doing mission work in Papua New Guinea in 1993. The James family lived in the Southern Highlands Province for five years before moving to the capital city of Port Moresby in 1998. While in the Highlands, Bro. James encouraged and strengthened existing churches, held Bible studies for pastors, and went on trips in the bush or jungle to preach the gospel in different villages. He also completed an Articles of Faith and Church Covenant in the Melanesian Pidgin language. Sis. Cyd James and their sons taught literacy, music, and tutored in other school subjects. After moving to Port Moresby, the Lord opened the door for a new mission work to be established. It was organized into a church in January 2004. Brother Norman Malu was ordained to the gospel ministry and now serves as pastor. The Lord blessed with the church being able to purchase property in the Gerehu subdivision of Port Moresby where a meetinghouse and parsonage was built. Bro. James was also able to complete and print several more translation projects, including gospel tracts, Sunday School materials, hymns, “The Trail of Blood,” and a commentary on the book of Revelation. The church in Port Moresby continues to preach at various market places and has a mission point in Sogeri in Central Province. They are also continuing to teach young pastors in the Highlands as opportunity arises.
At the end of 2009, Bro. and Sis. James moved to New South Wales, Australia. They are presently helping a small church in Cobbitty, Faith Missionary Baptist Church. Their burden is to see the gospel continue to go forth, sinners saved, and the saints edified and built up in the faith.
