Mission Work in Papua New Guinea

In April 2017 my wife Marie and I returned to Papua New Guinea where I was born to serve as music missionaries to the people of the Enga Province and the Gutnius (Good News) Lutheran Church. Below you find links to all of our newsletters and many other aspects of our ministry.

We would love to have you partner with us in our ministry here. To support our missionary service please visit lcms.org/dicke or call LCMS Mission Advancement at (888) 843-5267. You may also establish a giving plan through Mission Central at www.missioncentral.us/dicke or call (712) 882-1029 to speak to Gary Thies or (703) 713-2851 to speak to Dr. Brent Smith.

We will be visiting the US from April-June 2019 to report on our mission work. If you would like us to visit your home, church, or school, please contact us.

Yours in Christ,

Dr. Martin Dicke
