The Miss Pacific Islands Pageant PNG week has begun.
Yesterday, a Church service was celebrated by Anglican Bishop, Denny Bray Guka, at the St John’s Parish in Port Moresby.
Bishop Denny’s message emphasised on prayer and its importance in life.
The contestants will also visit the blood bank, Buk Bilong Pikinini, National Museum and art gallery, and the Port Moresby General Hospital Maternity ward.
