Sister Dawida and Father Jan have been working for years in Papua New Guinea, where poverty, disease and lack of education hinder the development of the young state. Polish missionaries are a large group of brothers and sisters who, far away from their own country, work with the Guineans to build a new and better world. Although missionaries face many difficulties, faith and sense of humor help them to survive the most difficult moments. Meeting them can change your view of religion. What they do goes far beyond giving out the Bible or baptizing converts.
