I don’t know what algorithm has given me social media ads for almost-private jets, but there’s definitely been a mismatch of some sort. It made me laugh aloud to think that I’d ever been traveling on anything other than a full-to-the-brim international flight or a tiny unpressurized mission plane. But, really, I haven’t been traveling at all, instead I’ve been finishing up the school year with NCA. Our grade 12 students graduated last Thursday. I finished up with them in A&P earlier in the week. Below are a couple pictures from the year of a few of the students, one of them completing a terminology and suture lab using bananas and another playing digestive system board games that they made. I miss getting to do these things in person with them, but I’m so glad that the teacher that facilitated the A&P course while I taught remotely was up for the adventure. She is NCA’s German mother tongue teacher so there was a lot of learning for her too as she listened in on the class everyday! I am thankful that these upperclassmen got the chance to take A&P and that we got to experience what a remote class could look like for a school in PNG.
I’ve also been participating in meetings. The primary focus now turns to trying to allocate staff well so that we can provide quality education for as many missionary kids as possible. We are short-staffed, especially at the high school and in our special services sections. Please pray for wisdom for us administrators as we seek to plan well with what God has provided (which does not include almost-private jets!).
