After a long day of travel on 1 July all 22 pieces of luggage and 15 volunteers were welcomed warmly in PNG.
Our first day of work began with a morning devotional with the HOPE staff and volunteers at the Lawes Road Clinic.
We then divided up into two groups for a day of work. One group stayed at the Lawes road clinic and did staff training while the other group went to the 9 Mile Clinic to do some cleaning and painting.
Mipela les pinis. Mipela bin workim long 9 Mile Clinic. Plenti paintim na cleanim na sun uppim liklik haus wind.
Translation: We are all tired out as we have been working at the 9 Mile Clinic. We have been painting, cleaning and erecting a shelter.
