The US team from the HBB (Helping Babies Breathe) and HMS (Helping Mothers Survive) program is here to train a large group from Perinasia, the Indonesian Pediatric Association. Dr’s Visick, Groberg and Lindsay and Tonya, a Nurse Practitioner will train Dr’s Nurses and midwives in the speciil technique of neonatal resuscitation.
They arrived into Jakarta late Sunday night (actually 2:00 am Monday) and after a short night, met at the mission home on Senopati. Dr. Groberg is the former Mission President here (2010-2013) so everyone at the Mission Office was really lookoing forward to seeing him and his wife. (For those of you who remember the movie ‘The Other Side of Heaven’ about the LDS missionary to Tonga, this Dr. Groberg is the real younger brother of the movie’s Elder Groberg. Side note – the Other Side of Heaven starred a VERY young Anne Hathaway.)
After a going-away lunch for Elder and Sister Baird, we loaded up the Blue Bird Bus and we were on our way to Pandeglang, 3 hours away.
