Heard you tonight in Mikado baptist in Macon. we will begin praying for you and your good work.

“To the farthest parts of the World” is that oft-told phrase that we often dream of doing, preaching God’s Word so that it is literally bathed, immersed in the Power of Scripture! TTMK exhorts US, back here Stateside, to do greater things in His Name, and has some of us even thinking of boarding the next flight to New Guinea, forming a Christian “invasion” that will make the term “shock and awe” pale in comparison to the rapt, unspeakable joy that will reign in the company of angels when they too see what so many of us shall have wrought!! Is there anyone else who would like to go straight to PNG, form the spearpoint of Faith, and help our beloved family already working there?! GODSPEED to all!!!

Dear Missionaries to P.N.G! I have been on a few missions trips and would love to go on more…are yall open to young people coming over there to serve? I have never had any medical training but it has always been a desire of mine to learn and do medical mission trips. Your website has been a blessing to me. I will be praying for all of you!

Brother Matt you and your family are a rich blessing to my family as well as the Colonial Baptist Church family of C’ville Va. Thanks for having this web site in which we can see a glimpse of the mighty works of God in Papua New Guinea. My wife and I are fascinated by what God is doing their and would very much like to see your mission field first hand. If there is a group missions trip in future could you please email me a notice and information needed such as cost and how to go about getting there.

Thanks for making God,s name great in Papua New Guinea.

Just wanted to say how unspeakably thankful I am for missionaries especially you all. I am too young to go to a foreign field. I appreciate with all my heart those who go(: I believe our awesome God has something for me to do somewhere. I am begging him to let me reach some for Christ. More love to Jesus everyday! in Christ, Hannah(:

Because my husband & I are fairly new members of LIBC, we don’t know you all very well, but we’ve heard a LOT about you & have gotten to see you on a few occasions. I personally want to thank you for what you do out there on the mission field! It totally amazes me that you can give up your whole “normal” life to go & do what God calls you to do! Bro John, I really enjoyed hearing you teach in our Sunday school class, you have a way of bringing the Bible to life & totally captivating me! Praise God for all of you & what you are doing! We will continue to pray for you guys!

God Bless!

I’m so thankful for the messages that God spoke through John at the Northside Baptist Church missions conference. I am deeply sorry about Andrew and every time I think about the story i get upset thinking he spent the last few moments of his life on earth looking for a missionary to go to the people of his tribe.

God Bless - keep up the Lord’s work

Was just told of your Website today, and have been on it. It is amazing at the work that God has led all of you to do!. Thrilled to know your clinic has been finished. This was my first visit to the website, but certainly not my last. May God Bless each and everyone of you for doing God’s work, and spreading the word to these amazing people.

I just checked out your website. I already have John & Selina and Matt & Becky on my prayer board and pray for them often. Our church helps support them. We will be praying for a safe birth for your baby girl and for your family as you prepare to return to PNG.

Hi Rachel Muldoon!! Just wanted to let you know I’m praying for you. A group of PCC students get together and pray on Saturday and tonight your name was mentioned and we prayed for you!

God bless you!

Enjoyed Sarah’s “Normal Day” post. I wonder about the time I have been awake in the middle of the night and think of different people to pray for… I wonder just what is going on at that time. I could have been praying about this incident and not even knowing it!! Thanks for taking time out of the busy schedule to write!!

What a blessing this site is for seeing close-up the work you all are doing. Cherith has explained her ministry to us and we’ve seen photos but it’s amazing to see the whole team working together. I think I would like the Kamaen people!

Hello brother Matt and Family. I had a wonderful time at the missions conference at Shalome Baptist church this week! It was trully a blessing to everyone. I heard that you were a pilot. I’m also a student pilot doing my commercial. Lord willing I’ll be heading down to Coffs Harbour, New South Wales Australia to do my commercial exams in 2wks. I would appreciate if you all thought of me in your prayers. God Bless!

Hi! It’s so good to see the work there is progressing so well! I love the video of the new clinic! It looks amazing! I miss you all there and pray for you every time I think of PNG. Keep it up! The team that’s going with Goforth for next summer is a very awesome team. They are very excited and I am sure they will be a blessing there and you will be a tremendous blessing to them also!
I was remembering my experiences there and I am so glad for the opportunity to have gone. God used that time to solidify in my heart the need for the Gospel to be spread everywhere but especially in remote areas. I am graduating this May, I will work for a year and then I am determined to go to Linguistic school and later on maybe even Equip for further medical training. I am still praying about where God will lead me. PNG is still in my thoughts and if God leads me there I will go! Thank you so much for the lasting impact you allowed God to make in my life! If it wouldn’t have been for your willingness to take in our Goforth team, I wouldn’t have had this opportunity to see the need for the Gospel in PNG! Thank you and may God bless you greatly!

Dear Allen family, we think of you and pray for you daily. When Matt and Becky led our couple’s retreat a few years ago, we were blessed by both of you.

I was just blessed to see this summer’s presentation here at PCC in Mission Prayer Band. It is so encouraging to hear from people that I actually went to school with serving on the mission field and doing what God has called them to do. Thanks for what you all are doing there and you are all in my prayers. Best wishes to Andrew and Rachel! It was good to see what you guys are up to :)

Hey Matt, Becky, and girls! We hope you all are doing well. Just wanted to let you know that Samantha Grace was born on Sept. 22. God has blessed us with a health little girl. She is definitely a miracle. She was 6lb 4oz. We miss you all and think of you often. We love you. You are in our prayers!!

My heart is so full of emotions as I write this. Today was the first day that I was on your website, “THAT THEY MIGHT KNOW”. I knew it was a work there but had no idea until after seeing all of the pictures. God bless you young man and Ms Becky and family. Thank you for your labors of love for the PNG people but most of all for God. I feel like I have not done the work justice. I saw with my own eyes the need for constant prayers for your work in PNG. Forgive me. I wonder why it is that unless we see with our eyes, speaking of myself, we don’t really understand how much you need our prayers. Keep the pictures coming when you can.Tell your dad and mom hello. I will never forget our times together. My memories bring joy to my heart.
God Bless.

Bro. John,
Mine eyes have effected mine heart. As I scroll through the pages of this website and see the list of villages that have not heard the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, my heart swells and my throat lumps up. I will pray daily for you both and the work there. Eph 6:10.

For His Glory. Scott.

Returned back to the States at the beginning of January after a month with the Allens. This was definitely a life changing trip. I have many pictures and a few videos for those who are interested in seeing the work.

Jan 16, 2010 12:57pm [ 39 ]

Blessed be the name of Jesus and the Gospel with its powerful light which will shine in many hearts lost in darkness the Joy and Hope in Christ who saves us and gives the Holy Spirit to us with healing and guards us to victory.

Thank you friends for your faithfulness that help people come to Jesus.

Just a note to let you know that we are praying for you and your ministry and especially for the 10 new families in the next 10 years for PNG.

Hi Bro John, Matthew and all you families and helpers. I am not on the field in Central Australia at present but helping at my sending church. Would take too long to explain, but just wanted to let you know I am still praying for your work in PNG. Also a man in our church may wish to support you and I am going to send him this web site so he can have a look for himself.

God Bless you all,
Bro Warren Dunley. Rom 8:28.

Hi Allens!!

We love you all! You all are such an encouragement to us! Thank you for the work you are doing! We hope to join you soon! We are working on all the visa stuff now.

Have any tips for what to bring or what is not so important? How do you figure out what can fly with you on a little plane? Still trying to get that one in my head. 9 people is a lot to plan for. I’ll take any and all advice you can give!
Love to All,

Thank you all so much for your testimony and service to the Lord in Papua New Guinea. I’m a PCC student and have gotten to hear you preach several times on campus, including this semester; it was such an encouragement to hear your burden for the people there. I hope to be able to work someday in medical missions. Praying for you and your family!

Mendy Ruiz

I am definitely praying for you. Your dedication to spreading the Gospel in wherever the Lord may lead you is inspiring to everyone here at PCC. Keep up the good work, and continue to walk with the Lord.

Nate Clancy

Dear Matt Allen,

I’m a sophomore media productions major at PCC. After hearing you preach in chapel, the LORD has really increased my burden to help missionaries show the world the people they are trying to reach. You said that people with skills to show the “face of missions” were in desperate need. I really feel like the LORD wants to involve me with the face of missions. I didn’t have the opportunity to talk to you while you were here, but please pray that I make the right decisions these next few years. I’ll be praying for you, your family, and the lost souls your reaching in PNG.

God bless, nate

Megan Niewiadomski
Oct 5, 2009 8:22pm [ 48 ]

Dear Bro. and Mrs. Allen,

Your testimony and dedication has influenced a deeper walk with the Lord in my life. I am a Junior at PCC and heard every message that you preached recently. I want to thank you for bringing such simple yet needed messages to our student body. As a part of this campus, I’m beginning to pray more faithfully for a revival, not just a Spiritual revival but a missions revival! I believe that is what PCC needs!

I surrendered to the mission field of China when I was 13 years old and this summer God gave me the opportunity to go to China on a “missions” trip. We were working through a missionary there and held an English workshop in a college in Hainan Province. Through your preaching, God has “re” burdened my heart for missions. I pray that God will use me for His honor and glory as He is using you and your family!

When I heard about the 12 villages of people in PNG who keep coming and asking for a preacher, my heart broke. Now every time I think of that I pray that God will send you 12 to help reach those people for Christ! I know that God will provide, because He will reveal Himself to those who seek Him.

I will continue praying for you and your family as you are in the USA until the end of Nov. and for your ministry in PNG! Thank you again for the encouragement that you brought to my life through your faithful service and committed life to the Lord.

In Him, Megan Niewiadomski

Bro. Matt,

You have been at PCC the past couple days, and I appreciate your heart and ministry SO much. It is so great that you are making a difference in eternity, and you really encouraged and challenged my heart with regards to missions. Thank you for being real, I will be praying for you and the people of PNG.

Thank you,

Thank you so much for ll you do. Because of you coming to preach at PCC at the chapel service on Friday, i have decided to rededicate my life to be a missionary. I am praying that maybe some time in the next few years I could come to visit and help you and your wife there in your ministry. I will be praying for you and all the people over there that you will be able to preach and witness to.
In Christ,

Mr. Matt and Mrs. Becky,

I want to thank you both for your ministry to Papua New Guinea. Thanks Mr. Matt, for your message on May 31st at Fellowship Baptist Church. God used you to help me realize that He is most likely calling me to the mission field. I am not sure where yet, but God will reveal that in time I am sure while I am down at PCC.

Thanks again and I hope to keep in touch with you all. You and your family will be in my prayers.

Dear Bro. John Allen,
You probably don’t remember me, but I went to Victory Baptist in Milton, Fl. I am in college now at Champion Baptist in Hot Springs. I heard a message the other day in chapel that really renewed my burden for missions and missionaries, and I am reading a book called Peace Child about a missionary to New Guinea. The Lord has put you on my heart quite often lately so I wanted you to know that I am praying for you and seeking His Will as to where He wants me to serve Him. Thank you for being faithful in God’s work. You have been a great blessing to me in your sermons, testimony, and your service to God. May you see much fruit for your labor.

In my prayers -Rachel Pearson

I don’t suppose y’all remember me, but I pestered you with questions at the PCC Missions Conference in 2006 and I believe that God has called me to be a Bible translator in PNG. Thank you for answering my dozens of questions. I am trying to find the place that God has for me and I am praying for you that the work goes well there. Thank you for being there. Kelli

Thank you so much for your willingness to go to Papua New Guinea. Matt and Becky, because of your testimony and ministry, my husband and I will soon begin deputation for our work that God has called us to in Papua New Guinea. While at a missions conference at PCC, we saw your video and spoke with you. It was after your video that my husband and I were in tears and felt God calling us to the field of Papua New Guinea. I just watched your video again, for the first time in almost 2 1/2 years and it still brought tears to my eyes. Know that we are praying for your ministry and think of all of you guys often as we prepare for ours.
