Home is where your pillow is . . .

July 25, 2019

I travel back and forth to Papua New Guinea a lot, then within PNG, I travel back and forth between the small town of Ukarumpa and the Onobasulu village of Walagu. When I am back in the USA, I also travel around reporting about my work to many friends, churches and families. So, for many years now, I joke that as long as I have my own pillow, then I am at home. I even take my pillow when I am staying in hotels.
I left Texas for PNG on the 31st of May 2019. After a brief stop in Australia to see the cardiologist and some vacation time, I arrived back in PNG on the 10th of June. I did bring a new pillow back with me, as pillows left packed up in the tropics develop a smell that is not nice at all. I have been busy settling in to life again at Ukarumpa. This included retrieving my things that were packed away in a storage unit. The linens and household goods needed to be washed to make them fresh and clean even though they were clean when they were packed away just over a year ago. Some boxes had been packed away even longer. Last night was cold and rainy. It was so nice to cuddle into my clean flannel sheets under the blankets with my new pillow. I am caught up with myself in the new time zone, and beginning to feel at home once again.

Here is my luggage when I arrived at Port Moresby, the capital of Papua New Guinea. The new pillow is squished into one of the suitcases! I use all of my luggage allowance when traveling back & forth!!
