#1. Most challenging… 2 things were confronting – seeing small children playing in deep ditches filled with muddy water and rubbish. A mum who was 3 years younger than me but looked 20 years older. Their lives are so hard, but they were SO joyful.
#2. Most memorable… The lovely presentation by the Six Mile Teachers, Angela, John and Dorcas and visiting their school. The children were very shy at first but when we left they gave me hugs and waved and were holding high their new footballs and soccer balls! Shavi’s baptism was great too! Also, our great party where we learned to dance PNG style in grass skirts!!
#3. What you love… The warmth, hospitality and generosity of the people – Anne, Dore and the entire family and extended church family - they greeted us at the airport… and it never stopped!!! The sunsets were beautiful!! But it is the people who make the place.
#4. Life changing decisions… To be grateful EVERY day of my life and where God has chosen to put me. To keep in touch with the 6 mile teachers and encourage them and support them.
