A couple weeks ago the guys were finally able to get the wounded plane fixed up enough to ferry flight back to Sentani.  So when the necessary paperwork came through, they headed out.  It’s been a neat experience for our guys to go into this village a few times, including a couple overnighters, and spend some time with the villagers.  On this final visit, they brought 50 blankets that had been donated by a church in Jakarta.  They handed these out to the kids of the village.

Of course, nothing here ever goes smoothly and the hand pump for the fuel broke so they had to get creative with some duct tape.  The villagers helped pull the plane into position as they’ve done every time it was needed.  This is a fairly isolated village where not many people speak Indonesian and they need to hike quite far to get water.  But now, MAF has a special relationship with this village!
