Visit to Papua New Guinea

David L. Meyer

Our team spent a few days visiting some of the poorest, undeveloped and most isolated areas I have ever seen. In this tiny nation, they speak over 800 languages! In the Sepik River region of Papua New Guinea, there are hundreds of villages with little to no basic life-essentials we all take for granted. Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) kindly took us to several of these villages. Because of these conditions, the infant mortality rate is the second highest in the world.

In July 2009, Joyce will team up with Hillsong's Darlene Zschech with the intent to inject renewed hope into this nation. We are planning to take medical teams to give aid to the hurting and visit all the prisons of the country, plus much more. 

Please pray for us as we work with the numerous churches and ministries which have labored for many years to make a difference. They have done a great job and we go only to add to their efforts.

Together We Are Better!
