OB Emergency (Lali’s life saved again)

I made a couple flights this last week with the twin to some remote areas. I picked up 3 PFM missionaries and the local pastor in Palanan which is on the east coast of Luzon where there is no road access. The only way in or out is by boat or plane. [...]

From Dwayne:
Things have been a little busy lately. We have been

yesterday and like our new house and [...]

A note from Dwayne:
It has been almost 6 weeks since my return from the USA from working on the Twin Commache. Gary Roberts is still waiting for clearances and approvals to be granted before he flies it over here. Hopefully by the end of November he will have made it over here. I [...]
