Music Missionary for the Asia Region

In April 2017 I returned to Papua New Guinea where I was born to serve as a music missionary to the people of the Enga Province and the Gutnius (Good News) Lutheran Church. I have now been asked to serve the Asia Region as a Music Specialist. Below you find all of our newsletters and links to other aspects of our mission work.

Yours in Christ,

Dr. Martin Dicke
