"Inap mi kisim poto bilong yu?"

"Inap mi kisim poto bilong yu?"  or "May I take your picture?"  It seems that no matter where I go in the world that people like to have their picture taken; especially with digital cameras now when I can show them their picture on the back of the camera.  This patient and her husband were no exception to the rule and she was so pleased that I had taken her picture. 

My sons, Michael and Andrew, came home last night covered in paint.  A group of teenagers had started to paint the school yesterday and ended up getting oil based paint in their hair, ears, faces, arms and clothing.  They also learned the hard way about painting in poorly ventilated areas with oil paints!  No harm done, and it was a great way for them to serve others here in Papua New Guinea.

Teresa ventured into the markets of Mount Hagen today with Dr. Andy Bennett's wife, Judy Bennett, along with a watchman to guard their vehicle.  She returned with a few weeks of food for our family.  I was glad when she returned safely with no exciting stories to tell.

Tomorrow I hope to introduce you to my friend, Peter Dom.  He has quite a story about his life, and I was so happy to see that he is still here, as it has been four years since I last saw him.
