Things are lot quieter around here than the last time I wrote. I’ve gone back to part time in the clinic, which has given me a lot more free -time to build up some of those relationships that fell by the wayside as I inched my way towards burnout. I’ve joined a ladies Bible study, […]nothing?
What an interesting couple of months it has been! I can’t even believe it’s been that long since I blogged, because it has been so busy that time has seriously just flown by! Let me try and summarize: August It seems like we all had medevac on the brain; there was something like 1 a […]nothing?
How can it be August already? Howww?? Time is moving way too fast right now. I thought that summer would be slow and boring, but boy, was I wrong. It has been so busy and so full that I’m not sure I can even remember everything we’ve done! I just know that there hasn’t been […]nothing?
I’ve been a bit gunshy since my last post. I shared all about my trip into the bush to help put on a little preventative clinic for a village; since most of you who read here regularly know I work in the medical clinic this shouldn’t surprise you. However, the rest of the world is […]nothing?
Last week I mentioned that I was heading into a tribal location to help our medical staff run a vaccine clinic, but due to some inclement weather on both ends, it was delayed until the next day. Since we knew that the weather in this location can get real bad real fast, we opted for […]nothing?
Three years ago, New Tribes Mission Aviation’s quest for a Kodiak for Papua New Guinea began. It was one based on the need to replace our older, less efficient 206 program with the newer, more efficient (and let’s face it, much cooler) aircraft, the Quest Kodiak. This is an airplane designed by bush pilots with […]nothing?
It’s been a whirlwind of routine (is that a thing?) since we finished with Christmas and started back to work. But the exciting stuff is happening at the hangar! Two of our pilots have left for their Kodiak training in Spokane, Washington (at Spokane Turbine Center). When they return in a few weeks, they’ll begin […]nothing?
It seems that my life has been and will continue to be marked by constantly conflicting emotions. I knew that having holidays overseas would be hard; and I knew that the first one would be the hardest. I also knew that they would be some of the most beautiful if I let them. I dove […]nothing?
Surprising as this might be to some people, Thanksgiving is a uniquely American holiday… and it’s not celebrated anywhere else in the world. In Papua New Guinea, it’s just a normal Thursday. I simultaneously really enjoyed and had a hard time this year. Those traditions that you grew up with, created, or want to start […]nothing?
It feels like I am so behind on my blogging. I can’t write fast enough to keep up with the many goings on of life in PNG. I have completed my training as the medical clinic receptionist, and am now checked off to work by myself. I ask the nurses and doctors a lot of […]nothing?
