It has been awhile since I have posted about what our work will look like in PNG. I have been distracted… with two cute boys!
This is the third post in a series of “what are you even going to DO in Papua New Guinea!?”
The first and second posts were “Life in Madang” and “How to Pick a Tribe” – you can see those here and here.
So, after living in Madang to learn the trade language, and after choosing a tribe – we will move into one! The picture above is of the Husa’s house in Mibu, to give you an example of a hybrid home in PNG.
I don’t have much to say about this area that would be of interest to many of you, but here is a run down of what our hybrid tribal/American home will be like:
Okay – so house building will be the major project of the first couple months – we will build our home and one for the Dodds. During this time, we will also be starting our language learning and getting a census of everyone in the tribe – learning names, family relationships, etc…
To be honest, house building is the part of our move that I am the most unsure (read:anxious) about. “Are we really going to be able to flip a switch and a light will come on?!” “Are we really going to make shelves?!” All of the little pieces are beyond me, so thinking about the whole project can be overwhelming. But thanks to some AWESOME people at our church who are helping us so much with house building ideas, plans, and logistics (and probably helping us build it when the time comes), I am pretty sure we WILL have working lights and shelves!
Ultimately, we must learn as much as we can, look to others for help, and rely on the Lord!
