The Gideons Bible Society has donated more than 700 bibles to Mt Hagen Hospital to help spread the Word of God among staff and patients.
A member of the society and lecturer at the Wesleyan Bible College at Avi in Western Highlands, Pastor Ninde Ole made the presentation during a small ceremony at the hospital recently.
The Easy Standard Version (ESV) bibles which have been written in English included 350 standard sized ones for patients and 400 small ones for staff.
Ps Ole said the aim of distributing these bibles was to ensure every human being had access to the Word of God.
“Gideons Bible Society is an organisation comprising different churches with one aim – to ensure every human being receives God’s message.
“We want everyone to read the bible and decide for themselves which path to take – the one to heaven or the other one to hell”, he said.
Ps Ole said Gideons wanted to see all people reading the bible and deciding for themselves whether or not to give their lives to God.
He said the bibles were issued free of charge and were distributed mainly to schools, hospitals, hotels and motels where many children as well as adults would access them.
A representative of the Hospital and Deputy Director Nursing Administration, Michael Kaweya thanked Ps Ole and the Bible Society for their efforts to spread the Word of God to all mankind.
He said the bibles would help both staff and patients of Mt Hagen Hospital to know more about the Word of God, thus helping them to make an informed decision on which of the two paths to take when entering eternity.
