Bree and I had a great opportunity to fellowship with many Papua New Guinea (PNG) MKs and New Tribes PNG staff on September 16th for the 35th annual PNG Independence Day! PNG gained independence from Australia in 1975 and enjoys an extravagant celebration every year. The PNG MKs are used to watching and participating in giant celebrations where many tribes come out to demonstrate their special elaborate decorations, dances, and rituals.
This year, we all got together at a local park and had a traditional “Mu Mu” meal which usually consists of pig, chicken, greens, and vegetables. Some even brought coconuts and demonstrated how to cut it open “PNG style”.
