Papua New Guinea Internship    

Image titleDuring the course of the summer, interns generally split their time between 2-3 remote villages. This internship offers the opportunity to learn a new language (Melanesian Pidgin), acclimate to and thrive in a South Pacific context, as well as participate in and observe translation, literacy and Scripture Impact. Language learning is a very social experience on this internship, as it takes place during regular daily activities, such as hiking, hunting, fishing, working in the nationals’ gardens, washing clothes or cooking.

Focus 

Bible translation, literacy, village living, support work, working amongst individuals from animistic backgrounds, training nationals, survey

What kind of interns are we looking for?
  • adaptable, humble, teachable, servant leaders
  • willing and able to live in remote contexts
  • not afraid of physically strenuous situations (some villages are quite remote and require day-long hikes and long canoe rides to get to them)
  • excited about learning new languages
  • previous linguistic training is not required but is an asset
  • disciple-makers
