Ryan & Cheryl

Kamryn spent 6 months traveling and serving with YWAM, and shares about the 6 weeks that she spent in Papua New Guinea. 


She spent 6 weeks serving the people of Papua New Guinea, including: 

  • The capital city Port Morsbey 
  • Alotau 


Kamryn’s experience included: 

  • A focus on community engagement: education in schools, playing with kids 
  • Living off the boat to have the “full Papua New Guinea experience” 


She talks about differences between Eastern (collectivist) and Western (individualistic) cultures. 


Papua New Guinea “Fun Facts” 

  • One of the countries with most languages: 860+ languages 
  • Oro (provence) means “welcome” 
  • Moro bay is very wet/rains all year round 
  • There are 2 universities in Papua New Guinea, but the more affluent families send their kids to Australia for college 
  • There are still villages in the highlands that haven’t been reached by western culture 
  • The Kokoda track/trail from World War II 
  • One of the languages spoken is called “talk pidgin,” which is a combination of English, German, and a little Dutch 


Kamryn ends by sharing why she can’t eat bananas, mango, papaya, pineapples and the conversation veers into a banana tangent!
