Introduction / History
Over two thousand Meramera people live along the northern coast of beautiful New Britain Island. They live in a rapidly changing society, where the clash between traditional and modern ways is evident in their homes, clothing choices, job opportunities and intergenerational relationships.
What Are Their Beliefs?
Most Meramera people attend church, but some lack a deep understanding of Scripture and turn to their traditional religion in tough times. Although the New Testament has been translated into Meramera, it has not been published and is not widely available. Without the Bible available in their language, it is difficult for the Meramera people to understand and connect with the meaning of Scripture. Missionaries are needed to finish the work of translation among the Meramera people and make God's word available to them.
Pray for the Holy Spirit to bring revival in the hearts of the Meramera people and for God to encourage and equip local church leaders. Also pray that God will raise up workers to assist the Meramera in completing the Scriptures in their language.
