Bananas – the translation fruit?

Love those bananas!
Love those bananas!

Bananas, bananas, bananas! Bananas grow almost everywhere in Papua New Guinea. They are an important part of the PNG local  food economy. They can be eaten raw or cooked. When food is needed for translation teams or training courses, they are often the first choice of the participants.  Banana stalks can have up to 100 or more bananas on them. The stalk is cut and then hung from a rope to ripen. The bunch of  green bananas become ripe over time so you can cut off a hand (5-10 bananas) as needed.  They provide a continuous source of nutrition for up to two weeks or more. Bananas could be called the translation fruit! Pray that more people would support Bible translators in their communities by helping the translation teams with simple resources.
