Jungle life replaces 'comfortable pew' By CHRIS STEWART Herald Staff Writer An urge to leave the comfortable pew and pursue a life of Christian discipleship has prompted a Lethbridge couple to take the Christian message to tribes people in New Guinea Fraser Edwards, 29, oldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Edwards, of 822 10th Street S., and his wife, Diane, say they were previously troubled because their Christian experience had meant little more than Sunday school attendance After a meeting with Jack and Chic Ruth, Wycliffe Bible Translators from San Diego, Calif the Edwards began preparation for overseas service. 'Tn today's sophisticated world it is hard to imagine 160 million tribes people living in an ancient world of superstition and Mr. Edwards said in an interview "Without a common language there can be no communication, and without communication there can be no understanding of God's love. The Bible must be made available to all people in their mother Mr. Edwards continued. In August, the Edwards will take their two boys, Bradley, 6. and Cory, 4, with them to Lae. New Guinea The couple will serve in an administrative capacity, supporting missionary translators. Wycliffe Bible Translators is an interdenominational mission striving to place written Scriptures in the hands of remote tribes around the world. Approximately half of Wycliffe's members are involved in linguistic, translation and literacy work. The other half provides support in such categories as pilots, teachers, secretaries, mechanics, printers, doctors, builders, agriculturists, accountants and radio operators. In preparation for overseas duty, the Edwards completed six weeks of intense linguistic training. Later they attended 12 weeks of jungle camp in Chiapas, Mexico Jungle camp training provided such skills as canoeing Indian style, standing up, making soup from native vegetation: building shelters and furniture without the use of nails or rope; swimming jungle rivers and handling tropical first aid. There were 19 adults and 15 children involved in the course The Edwards have been assigned to work at Ukarumpa in the New Guinea highlands, 150 miles inland from the eastern seaport of Lae.

Rev. Albert Baldeo has been invited to join Christian ministers and leaders in Lausanne, Switzerland, July 16-25 for an international conference of world evangelism. Mr Baldeo suggests Third World representatives could offer a new vitality to western Christian experience. "To them, Christianity is a matter of life and he said this week. "They had to pay a price when they became Christians. Many of them were rejected by their families and Ostracized by friends because of their beliefs." Mr. Baldeo, chairman of the division for world outreach for the Alberta United Church conference, visited mission stations in India last year. He is himself a missionary to Canada from San Fernando, Trinidad. "In sharp contrast to places like India, and Indonesia, there is little sense of urgency about becoming a Christian in North Mr. Baldeo said. "A time will come soon when Christians have to stand up and be counted. Christian discipleship will demand a public he forecast. Following theological training at St, Stephen's Presbyterian Seminary in Edmonton, Mr. Baldeo became a United Church minister in 1971. CLOSE A MISSION SALISBURY (Reuter) A United States missionary group said this week it is closing a northeast Rhodesian mission where guerrillas killed two African staff members recently. Cataclysmic film frightens viewers CALGARY (CP) Hundreds of Lethbridge and Calgary residents reacted with fright last Sunday while watching a fictional television account of the second coming of Christ which many viewers believed to be true. The Easter special, titled The Rapture, was shown late Sunday afternoon and produced a scare reminiscent of the 1938 Orson Welles radio program, War of the Worlds, in which the earth is invaded by Martians. The 45-minute special caught many viewers off guard, particularly those who joined the program after it began. Produced in a documentary style, it gave a realistic account of world-wide catastrophies prophesied in the wake of Christ's return. The show was portrayed as originating in the news room of a New York television station and reported earthquakes, tidal waves and devastating disasters sweeping the planet. The Calgary television station said it received about 358 telephone calls from viewers, despite announcements later in the evening that the program was only fiction. SWAMPED The Pentecoastal Assemblies of Canada, which sponsored the program, was swamped by calls. Pastor Gary Taitinger of Calgary said people were calling the church late into the evening "We didn't anticipate the reaction. People were very upset and frightened and really shook up. Reaction was simifar to the Orson Welles Mr. Taitinger said A television spokesman said "it was Orson Welles all over again." About 60 phone calls-were received at Lethbridge Pentecostal Tabernacle, reports pastor Milton Israelson. City radio and television stations also reported many inquiries about the program. Teens meet at Central Over 300 teenagers from three provinces and the United States arrived in Lethbridge yesterday to take part in the annual Prairie Young People's Association conference at Central Church of Christ. The young people came an average of 500 miles from Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia and Montana for the three-day fellowship and devotional weekend. They are billeted at homes of the congregation Most of the services and banquets are being held at the Yates Memorial Centre, but Saturday afternoon the students will be spread out over the whole city in a gigantic Easter egg hunt. Guest speaker is Jim Hardenbrook, minister at Bellmghafn, Wash. Music will be provided by the Alberta Bible College choir from Calgary. The Saturday morning business meeting will choose executive for the coming year, and the mission to be supported by Saturday night's donation. Last year's donation went to Terry Scruggs, from the Alberta Bible College, who is working with the Wycliffe Bible Translators. Pilgrims warned KUWAIT (Reuter) A Pal- estine guerrilla group warned Friday that any foreign tourists visiting Israel will henceforth be classed as enemies, except while at three specified holy places. The warning came from the Popular Front General Com- mand, whose suicide squad of three commandos carried out this month's raid on the Israeli town of Qiryat Shmonah. The statement "We warn foreign tourists and others who intend visiting the occupied land that we shall treat them like enemies. We shall not be able to overlook the fact of their service to the enemy. "Following this warning, the Popular Front General Command will accept no responsibility for the lives of anyone on the territory of occupied Palestine apart from Arabs "Exceptions will be made only for those intending to visit the holy places in Jerusalem, Bethlehem and Nazareth, and only while they are there."

Rev W E Mullen is the director Cardinal's life threatened SANTIAGO (Reuter) The governing military junta said this week reported a plot has been uncovered to assassinate Raul Silva Cardinal, archbishop of Santiago and primate of the Roman Catholic Church in Chile. A junta announcement attributed the plot to an "extreme left- wing group" "and said Cardinal Henriquez has been under police protection since last week. The cardinal disclosed during an Easter Sunday sermon that he had received threats against his life and is being protected by bodyguards During the sermon, the controversial 67-year-old cardinal severely criticized the junta for ignoring the church's opinion on the junta's repression of supporters of the left-wing govern- ment of the late President Salvador Allende. The cardinal played a prominent role in trying to promote peace talks between Allende and the opposition shortly before the four-man junta seized power in a bloody coup in which Allende died last September.
