After a whole week away from home, I made it back in one piece. Thanks for praying for safe travels and all the adventours I was on. Had a real great 4x4 trip into the unknown as we took Ben's truck through the bush. We first visited a small house church and did some medical before we proceed to the next village. They say its 3km further and after 2 hours we were there,hmmmmm. This place is real remote and by asking where the nearest Clinic was, they said it was 20km in that direction , but its impossible to go there now. Perfect for me. So pray with us as we are looking forward and seeking out these remote villages in the the near future.
I joined up with good friend Friedhelm and a DTS Medical team in Banlung. With good friends Gordon and Bee, we went to the prison to pull some teeth. Turned out to be a real treat helping the inmates. We went back the next morning and could finish all the guys and girls with bad teeth. I was saddened by the fact that I had to pull a milk tooth from a 13 year old inmate. Was shocked by how young the children are that are in there. Pray for protection for the children to keep away from drugs and bad things.
Also had the opportunity to pull teeth from the Director of the Prison. We hope to be back soon again and help the guys wherever we can. The Health Care team will still work there this week. Pray for more open doors.
Made small progress with the process of getting permission from Dept. of h a Health in Banlung. Praise God that Gordon could help me with a letter. I just need to get it in writing and present it. Pray that we can find favor from people in order to do our work.
Also had a good time celebrating Katy's 40th birthday. Little time left for my friends to go home and I enjoy every moment I get to be with them. The children came with me today and Graham and Katy will be here tomorrow. Looking forward to a good visit. Pray for them as they are busy packing up to leave soon.
Please pray for Toinette as her health is not good. The swelling under her jaw is back and she feels very tired. My leg is doing just fine and the boys are all well.
Thanks for praying for us all
