The current “El Nino” is having a significant impact on Papua New Guinea. It has been very dry. That requires people to go further and further away from their normal “close” water sources that generally are fresh and clean year round. Often this is very hard work. When basic needs become difficult, language programs in Papua New Guinea suffer. People are not prepared to focus on Bible translation when the basic necessities of food and water are difficult to find. Pray that the drought would end soon so that the focus can return to the projects in progress.
