Can you find the two types of “bark” in this picture? Finding the one is a little easier than finding the other. Of course!  The dog has a bark… but the lady has a “bark” as well. These multipurpose head coverings act as ground cover, blankets, towels and even sunshade for the people in this remote area of the Eastern Highlands Province.  They are made of compressed tree bark.

Innovation has always been with us. Using the materials and resources that God has given us is a form of worship.  We worship Him by showing our respect for His creation and by being good stewards of His resources. Pray that as the different organisations strive to meet the linguistic needs of the people of Papua New Guinea, that they would learn new and creative ways to get the job done.
