It's a very complex issue. It looks like the West Papuan Independence movement is being blocked again and confused by actions of Indonesia. After reading the above article, we're going to pray more and wait for direction from the United Liberation Movement for West Papua (ULMWP) leadership with how we are going to deal with this issue.
Calling all Melanesians. Please pray for your Melanesian brothers and sisters in West Papua. The struggle has been over 50 years so far and the enemy is not going to give up easily.
The five Melanesian provinces to represent Indonesia at the Melanesian Spearhead Group (MSG) to become an united member is totally ridiculous, and another evil scheme by the Indonesian government. These five Melanesian provinces should represent themselves. And the MSG leaders (Fiji, PNG & Solomon Islands) should never have agreed to this proposal especially when the Indonesian government has killed over 500,000 of their Melanesian brothers and sisters over the past 50 years.
We’ve got lots of prayers to do and beseech God for answers and breakthroughs!
