Swamper Outreach Fellowship Celebrates One Year Anniversary at 8 Mile

By Lillian Sopera Keneqa – EMTV News, Port Moresby

Swamper Outreach Fellowship started as a small family home fellowship with the aim of bringing the Gospel to people’s homes. To celebrate resurrection Sunday, the small community at 8 mile gathered for a memorable service to commemorate their one year fellowship anniversary. In addition to the anniversary, they also witnessed four of their own youths get baptised.

Bringing the love of Christ to people’s homes has always been Swamper Outreach Fellowship’s mission since it started last year. Today (21/04/19), when celebrating their first anniversary, four of their youth were baptised.

Swamper Outreach Fellowship was born when Pastor Norman Buru’s family and his friends realised many members and people living in the settlement did not make time for church because they were working all the time selling food to make ends meet. Through the Outreach, the congregation met at each member’s house for service, bringing the gospel to their home.

Ps Norman said, “God has called others too, so we go to their houses and fellowship with them”

Three young women and one young man shared their life stories before they were baptised.  Through their testimonies, it is evident to see that they all desired one thing: and that was to be a follower of Christ.

Through celebrating their anniversary, Swamper Outreach Fellowship officially blessed and made a declaration for more people to come so within their small community, they can further extend the kingdom of God.
