Waima SALT

The Waima SALT course was conducted in August. The translators, Namsoo and Duckshin Kim, are a wonderful Korean missionary couple who have dedicated the last 20 years of their lives to the Waima people. It was a privilege to partner with them to bring SALT and light to this area of PNG! Waima is situated in the Central Province of Papua New Guinea.
