A week-long Revelation seminar conducted in a prison camp in East Sepik Province, Papua New Guinea, ended on November 27 with the baptism of eight inmates.
The nightly sessions, entitled “Unlocking Bible Prophecies”, were attended by both male and female inmates. On Sabbath, a baptismal ceremony was held outside the prison camp and unusually not guarded by the prison guards.
Among the eight male baptismal candidates was a juvenile who was sentenced to 14 years in prison for murder. The young man said he was very happy to have made the decision to give his life to God through the waters of baptism. He said he is looking forward to serving God in his remaining time in prison and with the rest of his life.
Guest speaker Minister Richie Gako said the program was a success and he is now planning to host more Revelation seminars in the years to come.
