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 day activities, such as hiking, hunting, fishing, working in the nationals’ gardens, washing clothes or cooking.
