The team is in Melauboh
The team made the flight into Melauboh today onboard a giant transport helicopter. This is a very exciting time. Getting into this area is extremely difficult, and so we do not take it lightly to be able to go into this devastated region. The population of Melauboh is 40,000 and 32,000 have perished or are missing. This stage of the mission is really going into to the heart of the tragedy. We do not take anything for granted as we venture into this next plateau of our trip. Keep us in your prayers.
