A very well-deserved award. Congratulations Agnes!

This is such an alarmingly real story of that dark time during the crisis and extremely well written.

There will be numerous other stories of the Bougainvillian peoples' survival during the blockade waiting to be told.

I eagerly await their publication especially if they are written as well as this. Congratulations Agnes and your big miracle man Barnabas.

Wow what an inspiring story of courage and strength in the face of adversity.

I found myself close to tears reading through this amazing story.

God bless you all and thank you for this story.


Wow. This is powerful reality. Well done Agnes.

I feel peace that we're coming out.

God did bless you, Agnes. What a wonderful, beautiful story. Thank you so much for sharing it with us all.

I love Agnes Maineke's telling of this story. She describes her 22 year old story like it happened yesterday - I was completely engaged.
Thanks so much for posting it.

Great miracle Agnes. I held my breath reading it. And Barnabas, all the best in becoming the best refrigeration mechanic ever.
