Seth & Veronica Porter serve in Papua New Guinea. Seth works closely with the churches and pastors and teaches vocational skills to young men. Veronica home-schools their children and is involved with the church’s women’s ministry.
Seth was called into missions at a young age but struggled at first to know how God could use a country boy who worked with his hands on the mission field. As he got older, he recognized that God could use his skills—and anyone’s skills—for His kingdom. Veronica grew up as a missionary kid with WGM and was born and raised in Bolivia. You could say missions is in her blood.
They met, fell in love, got married, and knew that their lives would be dedicated to serving the Lord on the mission field for as long as He wanted. While still in college, they applied to WGM, raised funds, and went off on their first term as missionary disciples (two years) in PNG. God confirmed to them that this is where HE wanted them, and they now serve as career missionaries. They have served in PNG now for more than six years.
They live in the Southern Highlands on the Montanda Mission Station. Montanda is about a four-hour drive from the town of Mt. Hagen, over rough roads into the bush. Their ministries consist of training nationals to fulfill ministry roles in the church, construction projects for the churches and mission, mentoring pastors, and preaching, and the Porters are looking forward in their next term to be working with the national church in church-planting efforts as well as community transformation through biblical training with TCT (Truth Centered Transformation).
The Porters are excited about their ministries in PNG and can’t wait to see how God will continue to use them to further His kingdom.
