Over the last year and a half, family, friends and my Relief Society sisters have sent white shirts and ties here to Vanuatu. Thank you!!!! I think it has totaled over 80 white shirts and close to 200 ties!! On Sundays here on the island of Santo many men will feel good about how they are dressed when they are worshiping The Lord. Some have been given to young men that have been called on missions from Vanuatu to serve around the world. Some of your shirts have gone to the Marshall Islands, the Philippines, and even to Paris, France. Friends and family reading this blog, I Thank you for your effort and love in sending these to these good men!

This is the custom of giving us the gift of food. We touch the kakae at the same time they shake our hands. We were to be the only ones that ate until we were full. They the rest of the branch could eat. We kept inviting others to join us.
Headed up the mountain again towards Jerlain. Stopped to see the progress on clearing the land so they can build a bush chapel out of bamboo and natangora leaves.. . They said every Friday they come together and work on the land.

Up early again, headed to Tanavoli to church. They had never seen the south side of the island. I love South! My favorite tree, Numbangu tree is south. The bullock eat the roots that hang down. It looks like it is floating.
Tanavoli Branch church
Before church began, they were practicing a song in Bislama, so I went and joined them.
Annie Hugai, love that little girl.
