Isaac's Deputation

Pastor Peter and Jenny Isaac and their children are PNG missionaries to the island of Vanuatu. They have finished a 2 year term, and are now back in PNG doing deputation services. At these services, they share of the work that God is doing through them, and raise money for their ministry, much like other missionaries do in their home country.

The Nazarene church of PNG has sent out 4 missionaries, so it was a special time for Emmanuel Church to have them back, last Sunday. They made signs and banners, and had a skit showing the different missionaries in their countries with their flags. The show of support for the Isaacs was quite inspiring. I am not sure that churches back home do the same when missionaries come back to share what God is doing.

The Isaacs shared stories of how God is using them through a radio program, and how they have reached their neighbors. One neighbor, was an elderly man who they adopted and became a grandfather to them. When he passed away, Pastor Peter was asked to speak, and 2 of his sons are becoming Nazarene pastors. Pray that the Isaacs may continue to reach Vanuatu with the truth.
