Continued training with a new group of students today. Yesterday was HMS (Helping Mothers Survive) – today was day 1 of the HBB (Helping Babies Breathe) course.
The baby mannequins are used for the training
Dr. Michael and Liz Visick
Dr. George and Bonnie Groberg. He speaks fluent Bahasa Indonesian
Dr. Greg and Dr. Laurie Lindsay
Our three translators – Vanessa Tandiman, Setiaman Sabudi and Tony Santoso
At the training tables
Dr’s Visick and Groberg demonstrating the bag and mask. Dr. Groberg is also demonstrating how to break the babies’ jaw….
Dr. Visick lecturing. Actually very little lecturing and mostly practicing at the tables.
Hard at work…
Sister Groberg getting a lesson in proper hand-washing technique
Dr. Visick, Tony and Taunya
Dr. Lindsay and Vanessa instructing
Dr. Groberg. He speaks Indonesian so no need for a translator.
We headed out to dinner (DeeAnn stayed at the hotel with Sister Visick) and I took this pic with the city sign…
In the Ankut – there were 2 others, so 8 of us!
Sate Ayam (grilled chicken) for everyone
Stopped for martabak on the way back. Martabak is a really thick pancake-like dough with a choice of stuff in the middle (sweetened condensed milk, cheese, raisins, chocolate, margarine, coconut, etc.)
Cooking the martabak
Another good day – such a privilege to be individuals with talent and skills and a willingness to share them. While the Church pays for their travel costs, leaving their practices behind for a week to 10 days costs them real money. And they do so freely. This is Dr. Lindsay’s 20th humanitarian trip; the 10th for his his wife. Dr. Visick and Dr. Groberg have been on multiple trips as well. And the students were such a delight – it was wonderful watching them having a great time, learning valuable skills and knowing they will be going out to train others.
