Nancy Nicholas wrote about GP teaching in Chennai  “During the first week, I was saying “ if I come again” and in the second week it was “when I come again”. I hope to be able to help out again next year. ..I certainly feel that God has given me the strength and the opportunity to do this work for him at a stage in life when many of my contemporaries have retired. I feel very blest to have had this experience.

Les White wrote about chaplaincy training in PNG: On each occasion books on grief and emotional and spiritual healing have been left with trained chaplains. With many of the rural trainings a variety of resources such as torches and solar phone charges were used as aids for teaching.
