Missionary Aviation Fellowship comes to ITF

 After the menu is planned and the food is ordered we head into town to buy the veggies, fruit, bread and meat for our conference... this time we hosted the MAF pilots for a workshop. And I got to teach Drew how supply run works so he can do it for me... great fun!
 We go to the market with a list of veggies we need in KGs then we weigh as we buy. Jacob has learned a lot about this in the last year.
 I really enjoy going to the market and buying so much, helping the people out. If someone has really good green beans I like to buy them all... then the green bean seller's job is done for the day. :) Here I am just buying a few sugar fruit to eat at home.

 Sarah Pauli, my good friend, visited for 2 1/2 weeks! It was so fun to hang out with Sarah again! We hadn't seen her since our wedding. She was here for our MAF conference and Thanksgiving!
 We had fun working in the kitchen together for MAF.
 It was fun to make a HUGE Thanksgiving meal for all the pilots, even though there was not a single American among them.... they still loved the food. And the staff appreciated the American Thanksgiving meal. :)
 They loved the cinnamon rolls.... ate every last bit. :)

Goroka University...

 After our busy weekend we decided to take a day off and go check out the University in town... the German guys and Ethan were also interested in seeing it too. Jonas is checking out the sign...
 We even got an official tour of the place... there are 1832 students studying music, sciences and humanitarian sciences.
 Here is the library.

This is the computer room inside the library.
 Here is the lecture hall/theater.
 The music department even played a bit for us... It sounded really good! The piece that they played for us was based on a traditional PNG chant.
 We were pretty impressed with the PNG music that they sang, harmonizing and playing PNG instruments...

Catering Spiritual Emphasis Weekend...

Jacob helped me with food prep the last day of our catering adventure. Usually I have the help of 4-5 national ladies (which I forgot to take a picture of) but they had Sunday off so I had to recruit Jacob. :)
After prepping and cooking all morning we loaded the Land Cruiser full of coolers, serving dishes and bread.
We only catered the noon meal. And then we brought all the food prepped and ready to go for the supper meal... usually sandwiches, soup and salads.
Then we were off to cater for 70 teenagers at our NTM Center, just 1/2 hours drive away.
Lena and her crew awaited us... Joanie, Natasha, Patrick and Steve. They helped us serve and do the dishes.
 The kids seemed to enjoy the food!
We heard that it was a great time for the missionary kids to grow closer to God and closer as a group.
