Visit to Karem


One of the highlights of any trip to Madang is getting to see my PNG family who I stayed with for 5 weeks during my orientation time last fall.  It is nice to be able to sit down, story and catch up on all the news since my last visit in February.  Patrick was gone to a crusade on one of the nearby islands but Martha was there with both little Jerome and Beatrice.  Beatrice is now six and just as beautiful despite her shaved head (a lice prevention measure).  It is always humbling for me to visit because despite their economic situation the entire family is overly generous.  I left with 9 coconuts, 3 kulau, 3 hands of bananas, two pineapple, a giant papaya and some buai.  Now that digicell works in Ukarumpa, I will be able to stay in better content with them between visits.
