This paper however, would be of no real value if it did not have a greater purpose in mind than merely listing the many, and varied beliefs of the New Guinea native. As the reader learns of the fear in the lives of these people, as he sees how all of their faith and action is directed by Satan, as he notices the hopelessness of their entire life, may the fact that our Lord Jesus also for these blind heathen and that they too must be brought to His love come to remembrance. If then these few pages bring one prayer to the lips of a reader for the peoples of New Guinea, if it shows the great need there is for mission work among these people; then the writing has not been in vain.
