Most of you have been to a fellowship after church, right?! I was raised Baptist, and we all know that they like to eat…therefore…have the best potluck fellowships! So when you have this in mind, you become disappointed very quickly here in the tribes of Papua New Guinea!
After church or bible study, everyone gathers outside and pulls food out of their bilum (bags) and guess what?! EVERYONE has brought the same thing…kaukau (pronounced cowcow: sweet potato!) It’s like a bad dream! So people offer it to you and you say, “Thank you so much!!!” and then you eat a little piece and then secretly give it to the kid sitting by you! Needless to say, we just eat when we get home!!
