Hi. My name is Conrad and I volunteer as a Project Consultant for ARDF, particularly focused on the Pacific islands, including PNG and Vanuatu.
2 years ago, I visited a Bible college in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea to assess a new course. As a Relief and Development Fund we can’t fund religion, but we can fund Community Development courses that are based in a Bible College.
ARDF now sponsors 6 Anglican leaders in a 3-year course that will teach them both discipleship and agriculture. I visited the students 4 months ago and interviewed them.
We are hoping to add 3 new students next year, including one from Bougainville. The course being both powerful and practical is growing a new kind of leader for PNG.
