I hope you are all doing well. Life here has been very busy lately as we have a team member on furlough, and another team mate moving to a different base. I have been busy flying as the guys here are trying to get me checked out with the local area as soon as possible. We are currently in the process of selling a helicopter and I should be flying that to Australia in the coming weeks. There is a lot of exciting things happening these days and we have been looking for the best way to communicate with all of you. This blog is nice, but it can be time consuming and it takes a lot of our internet data (of which we only get 2 GB a month). I have recently found an App that any smartphone can download calld WhatsApp. With this app Amanda and I can send photos, videos, texts and even voice messages to you all and you will have real time updates of what we are doing in Papua! I think this is a great opportunity for those of you interested in what we do, to be informed and really see what happens day to day. We have a lot of friend and family that are already on the app. With this you all will only be able to recieve information from us, which is a good thing considering all the time zones we all live in. This way it isn't a million texts in the middle of the night for everyone, but rather just a much for frequent update of what is going on in Papua.
If you want to be informed in this way just go to the App store and download WhatsApp. You can send me (Matt Meeuwse) a text from the app at this number +628124025703 (you will need to include the +). Please tell me your name (first and last) and that you would like to be added to the group Meeuwse happening in Papua! We look forward to having better communication with you soon!
