Travels Continue

Travels continue this week with Graham making an unexpected trip to Gizo escorting two patients. The sea was rough and he returned in heavy rain, arriving back at the hospital cold and very wet!
A police investigation into a missing person/murder, prompted by the finding of bones on a beach on the island of Rendova. , led to the request of a medical officer from the hospital to accompany the expedition. The Munda Royal Solomon Island Police were supported by R.A.M.S.I. officers based in Gizo (Regional Assistance Mission to the Solomon Islands). Dr Katy volunteered to go, together with Sereima (a tutor from the college of nursing) and a recently arrived U.K. medical student Peter. The witness on Rendova was not available, so the team combed the beach looking for a new witness and a place to land. Finally they arrived at the correct place only find that the remains had been washed away! The local police took this in their stride, but the R.A.M.S.I. officers were bemused as they had expected that the crime scene would be secure. Katherine and her team thoroughly enjoyed the day and returned with the anatomy book not used. Not the usual day at the office!
Back at the hospital, it was good to have fellowship with the Lale Ladies with Bronwyn Frazer as guest. She is the Pacific Representative of the Australian Uniting Church. The ladies, mainly nursing staff, felt free to share stories of how God was working in their lives and encouraged one another.
