This is an inspiring video:
After this I beheld, and lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, "Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.... (Revelation 7:9-10)
Here at What's Wrong With the World we are dedicated to the "defense of what remains of Christendom, the civilization made by the men of the Cross of Christ." There is a real sense in which the Kimyal are not part of that civilization, yet in another sense they are.
Aboriginal tribesman of Papua, the Kimyal people lived in the stone age until reached by Protestant missionaries in the 1960's. Some of them still do live in the stone age. It would be fair to say that they are as yet more the beneficiaries of the civilization "made by the men of the Cross" than members of or contributors to that civilization.
That's in one sense--the sense in which "civilization" is connected with material culture and knowledge, for example. But on the other hand, it would also be correct to say that the Kimyal are members of Christendom because they are Christians--they are our brothers in Christ. Having received the great gift of the Gospel from brave missionaries, they have been enabled to join us. As a Protestant myself, I would say that they are members of the Church universal--what the Book of Common Prayer calls "the blessed company of all faithful people"-- just as I am.
The Gospel is not bound, and we have been called to carry it to all nations. Like a seed, it may spread and be preserved in unlikely places even as it seems to become rare in its place of origin.
The Kimyal are glad to have the Bible in their own language that it may help to keep their children in the "path of righteousness," as one of the women says in the video. We should want to preserve both individual souls, eternal souls, and also the knowledge of that right path. If the seed is sown among the Kimyal, that is one more place for it to exist, to live, and to be cherished.
God bless the Kimyal Christians and all who minister to them.
