Description

In her interview Sister Joan Laughlin recounts her initial reticence toward the call for mission work in Papua New Guinea as well as her eventual embrace of the work and her love for the people and culture of PNG. Sr. Joan is one of the latter group of Sisters to serve there, from 1995-2000 (the original mission began in 1960), and she goes on to detail her work coordinating the Sisters' initiatives with other missionaries, specifically the Franciscan Sisters of Mary and Capuchin Friars. She also mentions her experiences in traveling the countryside, and the associated dangers and challenges in doing so. She concludes with reflection on her prayer life with the other Sisters and unique cultural adoption methods of Catholicism among the people of PNG.
