Mouk People of Papua New Guinea

I was introduced to a video about the Mouk people of Papua New Guinea during the Perspectives Course. The video is called Ee-Taow! which means “It is True!” This people group was reached by four western missionaries: Mark & Gloria Zook who appear in the video and David & Diann Yunker who were absent at that time. They spent months teaching the Mouk about their place in the world and the history of God’s work in the world beginning with creation. It was two months before they reached the narrative about Jesus’ coming and death. The video I have linked to is twenty minutes long and well worth watching. At the end of the story about Jesus sacrifice for us they all began to chant “Ee-Taow!” and celebrated for 2.5 hours!
