Moving from bush to bush

Markham river crossing

We needed to move out our Officer in Charge, Samuel, from Imane Health Center to go work at Sangape Health Center (both very remote and with no roads).  Unfortunately we could only get one flight to move them out.  So Saumel flew his wife and child and some of his things out with the flight.  Then Samuel walked with 6 other villagers helping- carrying clothes, pots and pans, and other goods.  They walked three days, including a river crossing on foot, to meet Mr. Gabriel, Rural Health Director at the nearest “road”. Mr. Gabriel is thankful to God for his protection for the walkers and his drive.  The car nearly went over a cliff trying to get to the location where he could pick them up. The picture is Mr. Gabriel crossing a river in the Toyota Landcruiser on the “road” to pick them up.
