In the early 1920s Meanou, from Tubusereia village, some 30 kilometers (19 miles) southeast of Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, decided to become a missionary for the London Missionary Society (LMS), and went from his village looking for a training school. His plan was to go to the LMS Manumanu Training School, some 200 kilometers (125 miles) northwest of Port Moresby and then become a missionary to the Papuan Gulf. However, he was discouraged by Iamo, his wife, because he had such a bad temper and she did not think he would make a good missionary with those character traits.
Gapi Ravu was the first Seventh-day Adventist minister from among the Aroma people of Papua.
