The featured picture above introduces Roy Schache and a work crew of Papua New Guinean carpenters and builders who have been involved frequently over the past ten or more years in renewing the buildings built fifty years ago at Timothy Lutheran Seminary, Birip, (TLS) where Papua New Guinean men are trained for the ministry in their church.
A significant portion of the efforts of PNGMS on behalf of the Gutnius Lutheran Church (GLC) of PNG has been spent on renewed construction of the buildings at TLS, with various projects spread over the past 11-15 years. The whole story can be found at the link below, and pictures on this page capture the overall scope of the effort.
