Here we are in Tanna again!   Our third trip!   Had great experience with audits and training and showing Brother Reid around Tanna.   The branches are learning!   Much improvement over last time!  

We visited the volcano and actually saw it erupting every 5 minutes!   

OUR GUIDE....  A young an from church.  He said he comes up the volcano everyday.   You can tell he loves it.   He didn't know how old he was....he thought 18 or 19.   You can hear the volcano from miles and miles away.   It was a level 2 out of 3 the day we saw it.   

Some children celebrating in their village.  Local customs...   Children's day!

BRO. REID with one of the elders of the village.  He loved seeing his picture.    

BRANCH NEAR THE VOLCANO,   Audited 2 branch presidents.    The one on the right came from another branch to meet with us and walked 1-1/2 hours one way carrying his records to be with us....
The one on the left is a 25 year old returned missionary, just married and really sharp.  They live out in the bush and are very happy people.   

A young member of the branch that prepare coconuts for us to drink!   Yum!


CHURCH in WHITEGRASS that has a congregation of up to 300 people each Sunday!

Big sports competition!  Many villages turn out.


Great men of Tanna with Port Vila District Presidency


  1. What interesting stories and photo's. When we see some of the meeting houses there, how blessed we are for our new Stake Center (which should be finished in January,) something we take for granted. You shine as missionaries. Love to read your stories ... be well.
