Snapshots from Various Villages

Last week was busy--with the Kodiak in for an inspection during the first part of the week.  In addition to helping on the inspection I was also involved in several other things going on in the office.

Being busy in the hangar and office, the only day I flew was on Saturday.  I had the privilege of flying down to Samarinda to move a national pastor and his family to Long Nawang where they will be serving in the village church.

The Kodiak was stuffed to the gills with over 700kg (over 1,500 lbs) of "stuff" (all of their personal belongings and possessions in this world).  The pastor's wife also rode along.  Next week the Pastor and his kids will ride on a different flight, as their wasn't enough room on my Saturday flight.

The above shots and the one below are just little random glimpses into the Kodiak' operations in various villages throughout Northeast Kalimantan.  They come from my own personal "stock" photos, for weeks like this where I'm too busy to be more creative.   Below, "Mike Echo Bravo" is approaching the island of Tarakan (where we live) as the sun sinks low over the mainland of Borneo to the west.

That's all I got for this week.  Don't forget to check out Joy's new blog "Grace Full Mama".

Once again, another excellent window into the various aspects of your life there in Kalimantan. I love the shot of "mike echo bravo" approaching Tarakan. Thanks for all the work you put into this blog.
