The second panel of the left light commences the theme of Truth. It shows the interior of a primitive mission school, with a woman missionary reading to the class. The village of Sangara is mentioned in the caption.

Teaching, if it is to be effective, must be based on the Truth— conveying reliable information and not mis-information. The teaching mission was a central element of the New Guinea missions, and three of the martyrs were teachers: Lilla Lashmar, Mavis Parkinson and Lucian Tapiedi.
