International Missions

 

Eric & Judith Hedeen – Papua New Guinea

Eric is reaching the Malaumanda people, in the Sepik region of Papua New Guinea (in the South Pacific just North of Australia). The Malaumanda tribe consists of about 600 – 700 people. They are nomadic and filter in and out of the bush to the village where Eric and his family live.

Eric’s primary role is church planting. He has planted a church in his village, that now has about 70 believers, and has a great outreach to other people in the tribe. They have Genesis and key portions of the Old Testament translated as well as some of Acts and Mark. Eric recently finished translating Romans, and has taught the book to the Malaumanda Christians.

It normally takes 20 years for a field missionary in this role to plant, build up, and work themselves out of the area.

La Providencia Orphanage -Honduras

Harbor Contacts: John & Tracy Batelaan

Providence Missions Adventures facilitates missions trips to La Providencia Orphanage and the surrounding Siguatepeque community by churches, schools, and other organizations. These trips, which are appropriate for families (children 8 and over), Jr. High, High School, and college groups, men’s groups, women’s groups, and any other combination of adults, could include any or all of the following:

  1. Construction
  2. VBS
  3. Sports Clinics
  4. Arts Camp
  5. Assistance with Providence in a Box (sorting clothes, working in store, etc.)
  6. Immersion in the local community and culture

Providence in a Box (PIB) is a unique program that enables U.S. churches and organizations to work with the local community surrounding La Providencia Orphanage to serve those in need. The mission of PIB is to share basic items with developing communities in need while keeping the dignity of the recipients by allowing them to shop at our Providence store only after they have worked at La Providencia Orphanage or the local community to serve and fill another community need. The volunteers are paid three times the local rate for their work in our own currency, Providenciales, and use the money to buy the donated items at our store. That way, the giver receives and the receiver gives simultaneously. And the Providence Children are able to further serve the community.
