We are now a month and a half away from our departure date. It is indeed a rather surreal feeling. Papua and its people have firmly entrenched themselves in our hearts.
We are in a season of lasts. A few weeks ago we had our last kids vs parents basketball games. Always a good time. We all got trounced by our kids, so proud!
In March Mikah turned 18, when did that happen, seriously??? We celebrated with some of her friends by going to her favourite restaurant in Jayapura. The staff there even sang happy birthday to her and presented her with a very large piece of chocolate cake and some fruit platters. Yum!
Recently we had some of my Sekolah Papua Harapan teacher friends over for dinner. Most weeks I meet with them to do some English fun, as they call it. It was fun to have them over for dinner and play a rousing game of Apples to Apples.
Hugo has been working on finishing up projects that he’d really like completed before we depart along with some national training particularly in the avionics department. He has been enjoying this time of being able to focus on completing these goals without the added stress of being the Maintenance Operations Manager. He has passed that hat off to the new guy and is helping him getting settled into the role.
