Broken Bones

Day 53: While visiting the ocean this afternoon, Claire jumped into the shallow water from a concrete ledge and broke three bones in her foot. God in his wonderful providence arranged for a doctor to be at the scene of the accident who helped us get to the hospital. God also arranged for THE radiologist, THE orthopedic surgeon and THE senior doctor of the "emergency room" to be at the hospital on a Sunday afternoon right when we needed them. (You have to have lived in PNG to realize what a miracle that is.) We're praising God!

Independence Day

Day 41:  Today Papua New Guinea celebrates its 39th birthday.  The kitchen ladies had the day off so this is what I spent the day doing.  Fortunately, we did get to see some of the preparations over the weekend.  This elaborate house boat was in Madang harbor on Saturday.

Bread-baking Class

Day 30: We had the first of three bread-baking classes today. Ten students each made a loaf of bread or a dozen rolls. (All without the use of any electrical appliances.) We didn't get photos of the finished products but they turned out great!

Hauskuk Demo Day

Day 27 is Hauskuk Demo Day! We prepared various items for the students to practice cooking over a wood fire. No bonfires here! It's hot work but we had Mexican stew, greens, fried kaukau (sweet potato), battered onion rings, fry bread, and pancakes. They did great!
