Here is Andrew boarding his plane
and taking off.
This is a pretty long journey. He travels via Memphis, Tennessee, Los Angeles, California, then Brisbane, Australia, and onto Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, finally arriving in Goroka at 9:45 p.m., on July 6th, 2001. From there travel is by four wheel drive vehicle to the base camp.
On the way he may meet some interesting people in the Goroka Valley. To view some of the indigenous people, click here.
But without all that paint and stuff, they are simply folk like you and me who need to know God's love in Jesus Christ.
Please remember Andrew in prayer. The Summit is a wonderful opportunity to Interface with experienced missionaries and native peoples.
Andrew is scheduled to arrive back in Alexandria, Louisiana, on Sunday afternoon, August 12th, 2001, at 2:15.
