A welcomed sight

Time to rest
Time to rest

After a long hot day, the cool breezes of the evening feel great and the full moon is a welcomed sight. It’s time to relax. A fire crackles and the voices become more subtle, eventually a song might break out. Life in the village slows down in the evening and it is often a great time to build relationships. Relationship building is important in Papua New Guinea culture and it often involves spending time “storying” – telling each other about the things that are important to you. For some that come from other cultures, it is hard to slow down and participate but the rewards of doing so are priceless. Pray that language workers can build great relationships with their teams so that the work can go forward.
