The Aruamu: Transformed By God’s Word

July 2, 2005, was a pivotal day in the history of the Aruamu people of Papua New Guinea as they celebrated the arrival of the New Testament in their own language and dedicated it to God’s glory and the fulfillment of His purposes for them. This day marked the culmination of nearly two decades of work by Pioneer Bible Translators missionaries Marsha and the late John Relyea backed by the prayers and financial support of churches and individuals in the U.S.

God’s Word, communicated to the Aruamu people in their own language, is transforming Aruamu lives. And as lives change, churches mature and an entire culture begins to be transformed. We invite you to celebrate with the Aruamu people as you watch this video.
