The month began with Andrew leaving incredibly early in the morning to fly to Papua New Guinea. He has been going there at this time with a team for the past 5 years. They are based in Port Moresby, but travel to the outlying settlements, and occasionally a remote village, to assist a local church there.
The work consists of providing medical assistance/support to a team that travels in an ambulance and 'bandages wounds'; helping with a kid's club which feeds, runs games/activities and clothes lots of street children, visiting patients in hospital and speaking in the jail. It is an incredible privilege for Andrew to do this - maybe he will post a few photos when he returns.
Meanwhile, Jenny, the kids and Boris (our labrador) went down to Corrimal to stay with Jenny's parents for the first week of the school holidays. A lovely break from life in Sydney. The kids braved the temperature of the ocean, still cold from our Winter season. The adults preferred to wait until the warmer currents come through in Summer.
