PNG Independence Day Celebrations 2011

As I look through our photos of the last few months, Independence stands out as a very significant event in PNG. There is a song sung all over PNG called ‘Unity’ with the words From the misty highlands peaks to the coast and island shores, we are Papua New Guinea. By the river banks and creeks, jungle valleys and waterfalls, we are the people of the Lord. Unity, brother take my hand. May the mighty love of Christ stretch across our land. With the cross upon our flag and heaven in our hearts, with love together we will stand…

Independence Day in PNG is September 16th. It is a day for the people of PNG to celebrate their beautiful country and it’s culture.

It is also a day of games – running, soccer, volleyball…

It can also be a day where newborn babies need to gain some independence of their own, even if it means a caesarean section.

God Bless. More news to follow soon.
