The Buakap village had came alive when people from Malalo Circuit, Yabem District gathered together to witness the installation of Pr. Yhum Nemngha.

Pr Nemngha will work under Pr. Micheal Maie for sometime and eventually take over from him when he goes into retirement in not distant future.

Pr. Maie graduated from Martin Luther Seminary with a Bachelor of Theology Degree in 1972. He served the Evangelical Lutheran Church for sometime before switching to private sector.

He was recalled into the Church by the late Bishop, Sir Getake Gam. He served as a chaplain to discipline forces including Police, Defense and Correctional Service and later became a religious program presenter with the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC).

He also administered at St Timothy Parish, 11 Mile, Lae, Gabsongkeg Congregation, Gengata Parish, Dregerhafen and later posted to his home congregation at Buakap where he is currently serving.

Often cheerful and smiling Rev Maie said he was satisfied that he had lived a fulfilling life, both in the ministry and in secular world. He was also thankful to God for what he is and for what he had done to him as his servant and is looking forward to what the future has in store for him.

Meanwhile Pr Maie challenged up and coming pastors to uphold the integrity of Lutheran Church and trust that was bestowed upon them in evangelizing the Word of God for the good of humankind.

All in all, Pr Maie had served the Church for 32 years with distinction.
