On Saturday, May 4, Live More Ministries, a grassroots women’s ministry based in southern Jefferson County, NY, is bringing Grace Fabian to New Hope Baptist Church, 19983 NYS Route 3 (Outer Arsenal Street), Watertown, to share the story of how she and Edmund had moved to the island nation of Papua New Guinea, learned the language, devised an alphabet, and developed literacy materials for the local people. They were translating the Holy Bible into the Nabak language when Edmund was killed.
Grace has written a book titled Outrageous Grace about how she and her four children wrestled with the pain and grief of their loss, disorientation, and restoration through the challenges that followed Edmund’s death, including violence, eviction notices, and a legal case in a foreign country. Her story is a powerful message of forgiveness and hope.
Grace will have returned to Papua New Guinea for a two-month visit before she speaks on May 4 in Watertown.
The free program for women includes a 9-9:45am breakfast by the New Hope Baptist Church Women. The 10am-12pm presentation includes Grace signing copies of her book available for a $13 donation.
