Back in PNG

I safely arrived back in PNG on Monday afternoon. It was nice to be home after being on an airplane for so long. I had a nice welcome by the missionary family upon my return, and have been enjoying the dinner invites I have received. It has been good to catch up with the missionaries and what has been happening here while I have been gone. I've enjoyed working in the garden and playing tennis as well. I was also pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome I received from the national staff. So many folks came up and gave me a hug and said how happy they were to have me back here when I went to work on Tues am. I really felt appreciated, loved, and at home. One thing that hasn't been good, is the jet lag. I woke up at 3am the first night, and 345 the second. Hoping tonight will be better - we shall see.
