Greetings Everyone,

I expect many of you are wondering why you haven’t received an e-mail describing the state of the seas, my seasickness and the wonderful welcome of the PNG people.  It’s because we are STILL here!

In March I took what was to be a week’s trip to Brunswick Heads (Northern NSW) to celebrate my Mum’s 90th birthday.  Dad got sick the day I arrived, missed the party and had six weeks in hospital with cellulitis.  I stayed another month until he regained his strength and was able to remain living independently — a fine effort for a 96 year old!

Phil spent the time removing the carpet from the floor of the boat and replacing it with cork tiles.  He did a superb job and even tackled some of the mammoth task of cleaning up the acres of fine dust from the sanding process.

We are now tackling the provisioning and hoping to leave Bundy in two or three weeks.  Our BIG prayer need is the renewal of the work permit for our visas which is held up in PNG.  Hopefully my next e-mail will describe our trip to Townsville and the date of our departure for PNG.

Gos bless you all,

Pam and Phil
