Independence Day

Being on the mission field is a little different in the fact that we don't get to celebrate American holidays the same way. Why we pray for our Country and it's leaders regularly on the fourth of July in Papua New Guinea it is just another day of work.

Independence Day for Papua New Guinea is September 16th, this year will be their 32nd anniversary of self rule after seperating from Australia in 1975. The people will dress up in traditional dress with face paint and grass skirts and perform traditional dances.
