Our new Internet Satallite

This is Norbert, our NTM ICT expert. He came down to Wewak for a few days to help install our new internet VSAT. And Jacob helped him put up the new one... they used ropes to put it in place because the hands for the satellite didn't get shipped with it. A few days later they were shipped via plane and arrived a bit later then expected. But the job was eventually done. :)

Picking up a Biem boat

 Many times there are people coming back from the Biem island where some NTM Missionaries serve, so Jacob takes the boat trailer down to pick them up.

Cutting down a talis tree..

 Jacob is always amazed at how the people here can climb trees with no fear of falling! This is Kapi one of the men who works with Jacob.


Jonathan saw this picture and says, "Can I have that?". :)

Random Happenings of Life...

 Jonathan was given a rocking chair which needed a little work. So Jacob fixed it and now they can sit and rock together. :)

 Nice job showing all your teeth!

 We found a 'new' corner hutch... another missionary was selling it... and it fits perfectly in our house!

 Sunday Morning waffles with papaya, mango and soursop sauce. Yum!


 Playing Cow with Mom! :)


 "Fixing" the couch

 
Dad is off to work and Jonathan took a picture. :)

Big Events in Wewak!

 The Papindos store chain opened up a bigger and better Papindos grocery store in Wewak, quite exciting stuff! It is clean and full of stock! Jonathan especially loves the grocery carts because there is a kids car attached to it... picture to come.


 Getting ready for the PNG Independence Day parade... celebrating 40 years! Jacob saw the floats as he and his co-worker were driving around town buying supplies.


And no matter where you are in the world, Coke is there!

The Randomness of Jacob's work week..

 Picking up cargo from the NTM Hangar and meeting passengers visiting NTM's Wewak center.

 Fixing a flat tire for a missionary who has to leave in 1/2 hour for an international flight.

 Driving around town doing many different errands.

 Paying a bill here at Christian Books Melanesian.

 A stop at the police station to get a stamped copy of a police report for the robbery.

 A picture of the pipes we have on hand needs to be sent via email to a bush missionary for a well he needs to dig because of the drought... Jacob wonders if these pipes will work?

 Buying a pump in town... for the missionary's well, will this work?

 Checking with the Sepik Coastal workers to find out if the crate that we are waiting for has arrived at the wharf yet.

Helping Kapi cut down a tree. :)
