Christians from various mainline churches in Port Moresby joined them.

The service was organised by the Sarang Burung Mambruk Project, a society of West Papuan youths, dedicated to promoting unity among the West Papuans.
Mathew Hassor, the group’s president called on his people not to lose hope in prayer for a better day.
“We have a God. Yes we are under Indonesia now but we must not stop believing in oneness that he has given back our land, West Papua.”
