WE’RE HAVING A BABY!

Sorry, I just had to get that out. 🙂 You understand, right?

Here’s the quick baby facts:

  • Currently 10 weeks (2.5 months)
  • Due 20 November 2017
  • Feeling good days and feeling bad days
  • Tired
  • Baby brain (I seriously used to be smart, y’all!)
  • Checkups show all is normal
  • The plan is to leave in September on maternity leave, and return to PNG sometime in March or April.

After Josh and I got married (six years ago, y’all!) I had baby fever. I was sure that Josh ...

quieter community

Posted by:

Things are lot quieter around here than the last time I wrote. I’ve gone back to part time in the clinic, which has given me a lot more free -time to build up some of those relationships that fell by the wayside as I inched my way towards burnout. I’ve joined a ladies Bible study, and have regular coffee dates with girlfriends who are teaching me the beauty of walking through seasons together, and always reminding me of truth. Sometimes ...

big steps

Posted by:

I haven’t written in the last few months, but there has been so much going on! Josh and I have been really, really, really busy. No, really. 🙂

NTMA has been working really hard at getting the flight program back on track, a process that has been going on for a couple of years now. On Dec 10, two of our pilots were checked out by the aviation authority in PNG to be able to train and check our own pilots! ...

busy work

Posted by:

What an interesting couple of months it has been! I can’t even believe it’s been that long since I blogged, because it has been so busy that time has seriously just flown by!

Let me try and summarize:

August

sunflowerIt seems like we all had medevac on the brain; there was something like 1 a week during August. Each medevac is different and requires its own debriefings (departmental and leadership). Our processes have to be continually evaluated and revised. Josh was doing a ...

MAF-July-16

My mom and brother recently visited us. My brother is a computer wiz and came to help us make essential changes to help us with backing up all the crucial work we have on computer that we have done over the last 10 years. Not only that, but he linked us to a network making our communications with the outside world fast and reliable!  What a blessing!

On our way back from the city to bring them from the airport, we ...

july highlights

How can it be August already? Howww?? Time is moving way too fast right now.

I thought that summer would be slow and boring, but boy, was I wrong. It has been so busy and so full that I’m not sure I can even remember everything we’ve done! I just know that there hasn’t been much time for rest, or blogging.

A lovely day for a lunch date with my hubby! ?: Erin Verdonck

I’ve been a bit gunshy since my last post. I shared all about my trip into the bush to help put on a little preventative clinic for a village; since most of you who read here regularly know I work in the medical clinic this shouldn’t surprise you. However, the rest of the world is not as knowledgeable or understanding as you, and I encountered something I’ve never had to before: hate mail. Hundreds of hateful comments between Facebook, this ...

I recall hearing horror stories of missionaries traveling to destinations by ship.  They certainly were not the cruise lines of today.  –Some journeys took as long as two months; some of those journeys were taken on vessels that called in question their sea-worthiness; and some of those missionaries who journeyed on questionable vessels became sea sick, enduring long bouts of illness from tainted supplies, and some even lost their lives.  Indeed, those were hardships to be counted as ...

tribal trip

Posted by:

Last week I mentioned that I was heading into a tribal location to help our medical staff run a vaccine clinic, but due to some inclement weather on both ends, it was delayed until the next day.

Since we knew that the weather in this location can get real bad real fast, we opted for a dawn departure to make sure we got in before the weather turned sour. This means leaving our center at 5am, driving ...

the quest for kodiaks

Posted by:

Three years ago, New Tribes Mission Aviation’s quest for a Kodiak for Papua New Guinea began. It was one based on the need to replace our older, less efficient 206 program with the newer, more efficient (and let’s face it, much cooler) aircraft, the Quest Kodiak. This is an airplane designed by bush pilots with missions in mind. It can take off heavier and faster, and land shorter than the 206’s we were flying, plus it’s big squishy tires means ...
