Arick - #9
He was a street preacher that morning, loudly exhorting those gathered at market to follow Christ. After he had finished his sermon, I had a nice chat with Arick. Born in 1933 near Warabung, he has lived in Ba'e for 15 years. I asked if he was a pastor, and his face grew intense. "No," he replied loudly and firmly, "I am a Christian!" and proceeded to tell me how he was saved in the mid 70's, and how Christ changed his life, and how thankful he is. We also spoke of his four children and what they were doing, but he kept returning to speak of his desire to preach the Gospel, because "so many Papua New Guineans don't really know Jesus."
