I began monthly clinics in Luma Cassai, an old mission about 60 kilometers from Biula where there is a small clinic. People there come from small, isolated villages in the bush, often not being able to pay the token fees we charge, with evidence of much more basic health needs. The Christians there are industrious and have gone out of their way to make us welcome, help with preaching the Gospel, and feeding us. However, it will be hard to reach there during the rainy season, as the road turns into a quagmire and is only passable if it had a day or two to dry out. I have made trips there by motorbike but can only bring very limited medical supplies on those trips.
