Meet Steve / Endorsements / Ministry in PNG

Papua New Guinea is the poster child for diversity, with over 1000 distinct tribes and 830 languages.

The nation is slightly larger than California with 600 islands and a population of 8.5 million people. Eighty percent still live in tribal conditions without running water or electricity. The nation also has some of the highest stats in the South Pacific for Gender-based Violence, HIV/AIDS, and other diseases. Poverty, illiteracy, and crime are common issues. However, the people are spiritually hungry and the country is experiencing an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Papua New Guinea / Where in the World is PNG?
