Markets spring up wherever people gather and food can be sold. Driving down the road in Papua New Guinea, you might see markets everywhere! It is not unusual to have two markets close together. Often it is because one marketplace is in one language group and the next market is in another language group. People tend to come together around the language they speak. Markets are a great place to practice a language that one is learning. Just point at a fruit and ask what the name of it is in the tokples (heart language) they are speaking. They will be quick to respond. People are proud of their language and always enjoy (sometimes laugh) at how a new person pronounces the newly learned word. Pray for the many language workers learning new languages today!
