Luciano from the neighbouring island La Réunion has been working in different regions of Madagascar for many years. He regularly visits villages in the north. In most of the locations, he has trained local workers. Unfortunately, he was unable to do so in the past few months. He recently heard of problems he needed to resolve.
Recently, in Antananarivo, the capital of Madagascar, a huge branch fell from a neighbor’s tree onto a car parked beside it. Our pilot and his friend were standing just one meter away when it happened!
On the 19th of November 2018, we reported that we flew Dr. Justin into the village of Bevero where he treated the village chief who was sick. The villagers and the teacher were very pleased that we came, and they were happy to show it!
From time to time we receive drawings from children who are very excited about Helimission. With much effort and enthusiasm, they work on their projects. It’s a great joy for us to receive their artworks! If these children once become pilots or mechanics for Helimission?
There are many Christians in Papua, and they enjoy celebrating Christmas. Indonesian and English Christmas Carols can be heard everywhere, in the houses and on the streets. Lots of people dress up traditionally to celebrate.
