The old conference hall at the Bundum Retreat Center (BRC) is now being removed and a new conference Hall will be erected at the same exact site. The conference hall was first built about 25 years ago by Dr. Bergman who was the founder and the former manager of the BRC.

As recalled by many elders, for the last 25 years, this conference hall has contributed so much into the development of ELC-PNG. There were review workshop, course/skills training, bible studies, conferences, meetings, and retreats from all the seven departments of ELC-PNG being held under this conference hall.

According to Rev. Binora, the conference Hall was really deteriorated by whether over time and it is really a need that the conference hall be reconstructed.

The General Secretary, Mr. Tokave recalled his youth days where he attended workshops and meetings at this Conference Hall; he said “This is a place that has contributed so much to make me now as your General Church Secretary.”

On Sunday 11th April 2010, a Worship Service was conducted by the ELC-PNG church officers at the Conference Hall to officially decommission the Hall so that reconstruction work can begin. After the service, to mark the decommissioning of the building the pulpit that stood under the Conference Hall’s roof for the last twenty-five (25) years was removed and taken outside the Hall.

The Rainbow Program is the Outcome Based curriculum material that is used to teach Christian Life Study (CLS) in ele

 mentary, primary and secondary schools. The program was developed by the Education department of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Papua New Guinea (ELC-PNG). According to the Lutheran Education Assistant Secretary, CLS, Mr. Duaro Embi, the content of these materials is written in a more Christian Living context that is suitable for all Christian oriented schools and organisation.

Since Mr. Duaro Embi took office at the beginning of this year 2010, he found out that the Rainbow Program was not strategically implemented to achieve its targeted goals. “The National Government has already agreed that Christian Life curriculum has to be introduced into schools and ELC-PNG already has one that is not effectively implemented.”  Mr. Embi stated “Rainbow Program materials are just collecting dust at Ampo”

Jesus said, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost; teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you … (Math 28: 19 -20 NKJV).” This great calling and commission was and is commanded unto everyone who called themselves Christians. The call is for all of us.

Siwert Robert is currently a teacher at the Morobe Special Education Resources Center (MSERC), and a member of Papua New Guinea Lutheran Students and Graduates Partnership (PNGLTSGP). He has come to perceive that calling as a “high demand call” by God to reach out to the unreached and unsaved portion of humanity. Challenged by the great evangelical statement by the first baptized local Lutheran evangelists from Finschaffen “taim yupela igo, yupela i ting bai yupela kam bek o nogat?” [When you go, do you think you will ever retrun home], when asked by missionary Kaiser They confidently replied, “mipela ino ting bai mipela kam bek.” [We do not think we will ever return]. Siwert has raised his hands to leave his job, family, loved ones and his country to go after this call.
