Introduction / History
Found on the northeastern shore of Fergusson Island of Papua New Guinea in the shadow of Mt. Kilkerran, the largest mountain on the island, the Maiadomu language group is rather difficult to access. The nearest airstrips can be reached only by boat or an arduous two to three day hike over mountainous terrain. The southeasterly tradewinds which blow from as early as June through late October make sea travel to Maiadomu another difficult proposition for a good part of the year.

While the United Church of Papua New Guinea, the only church in the Maiadomu area, has been established in Maiadomu since the mid-1980s, the number of members remains small. Though the Maiadomu people are open to Christianity and most even consider themselves to be Christians, traditional religion still underlies the beliefs and practices of the church. Most Maiadomu people do not understand the need for salvation.
