History was made in Papua New Guinea (PNG) in March as Nina Gunter, the first woman elected general superintendent for the Church of the Nazarene, ordained the first women in the Papua New Guinea Church. The three women, Pastor Clara Siune, Pastor Jenny Aisak and Chaplain Elis Kaui, were ordained 18 March at the Western Highlands District Assembly. This is a major historical event for the Church in PNG as the culture of the island nation is male-dominated. Commenting on the importance of the ordination, Kaui said, Ì¢‰âÒBeing one of the first three ladies to be ordained in PNG means a great spiritual breakthrough in the history of the Church of the Nazarene in PNG. This society is a male-dominated one, so being a woman in the ministry and being ordained is a great, great encouragement to the Church and to all women in PNG in the Church of the Nazarene.Ì¢‰âÂå (Nazarene Communications Network)
