A CRITICALLY ill mother of eight children was flown in to Rumginae from Yehebi on Tuesday.
She was flown here by our Missionary Aviation Fellowship (MAF) pilots based in Rumginae in what was a last ditch effort to save her life.
This courageous woman was suffering from what turned out to be disseminated tuberculosis with cor pulmonale, heart failure secondary to lung disease.
A long term missionary at Yehebi, Dale, and his wife had sponsored her and her husband’s tickets to fly to Rumginae.
It was another glimpse into the awe-inspiring work that missionaries continue to do for rural Papua New Guinea in 2016.
