A year after his passing, late Bishop Chief Dr Wesley Kigasung’s demeanors, wisdom, kind words and exemplary life as a mentor and humble leader of 1.2 millions followers in Papua New Guinea is remembered.

This was not only in ELCPNG, but also by other partner churches overseas.

The usually sleepy Aluki village in Bukawa village in Morobe Province sprang to life on May 14 as this was the first anniversary of Rev Kigasung’s death and 17 ELC-District presidents led by acting head bishop Rev Zau Rapa and general church secretary, Mr. Isaac Teo joined the people from Laulu Circuit in Yabem District in observing the day.

Rev Rapa and Mr Teo unveiled the headstone. Rev Rapa described late Kigasung as “selfless and a real role model” who led by example and whose good deeds and accomplishments have been written in the hearts of many who knew him as a colleague and leader.

The spirit of the Theme of this year's 2009 World Day of Prayer for Papua New Guinea (PNG) was so evitable in all the events that took place in all the 19 provinces throughout PNG. The 6th March 2009 is a memorable, touching and moving day that will not fade easily from many mothers and sisters who have attended or observed the Word Prayer Day of Prayer whole heartedly.

PNG has nineteen 19 provinces, that are each further politically divided into districts totaling up to 109 electorates. And in all these 109 electorates there was at least an event taken place to observe this day. God was really present as He always does and He gracefully blessed 6th March 2009 with sunshine and cool breezes. Mat 18:20 says that "For where two or three come together in my name, I am there with them." But surely on that day billions of women and faithful Christians all around the world come together that it was so evitable in the nature by which God is.
