It's been another busy, wonderful week of missionary flying here in Northeast Kalimantan.
Last Saturday, Pak Isto, one of our fantastic, young, Indonesian hangar employees got married. A group of us pilots/mechanics, together with most of the other Indonesian staff, got together and made the one and half hour boat trip to the little village where they got married.
After the reception we snagged an MAF group shot.
The church was decorated in traditional Dayak carvings and paintings.
And the young ladies greeting folks as they entered, were also wearing traditional dress. Those are completely made from tiny, itty bitty little beads. Amazing hugh?
Even though this village was not as remote as the ones we fly to, it certainly created quite an excitement with the local kids to see so many Westerners walking around. My friend and fellow pilot, (and a great photographer,) Tripp, was like a rock star being pursued by the paparazzi!
Here's a few random shots I took as we walked around a bit.
