What are the Wards Doing Right Now?

by Grace

What are the Wards doing to prepare for their big move? Well, as I am writing this we at an X-ray facility waiting to getting chest X-rays (Dad, Mom ,and I). This is just one of the many medical steps we have to take in order to go to PNG. We’ve all had our physicals, blood tests, and shots.

Footlockers have arrived. We will take 10 of these, plus 2 suit cases, a guitar case, a giant keyboard case, 7 carry-on bags, and 7 backpacks on the plain. This will require a 15 passenger van pulling a trailer to get us to the airport. It will require many vehicles on the PNG end!

Everyday there is something that needs to be done. We are in the process of planning out the school for the next 4 years and making sure we have all of the school books we need. We will also be painting the house and getting it ready to be rented.

To-Do Lists

3 big lists: Ministry To-Do’s, Moving To-Do’s, and Purchases to be made

Dad and Mom have a huge amount of paper work to do. Sending papers in between the embassies is huge process.There’s always some paper that had to get in the mail such as work permits, visas applications, medical records, etc. With seven of us going, its a lot of paper. Dad mailed a stack over an inch thick to Australia.

Most of all we’re making lists. Lists of things to sell, to get rid of, to put in storage, to buy, to clean, and to fix. It looks like endless list of lists, but over all these tasks have actually been exciting, because with each new task it seems going to PNG is getting closer.
