We toured the cultural museum and the man In charged asked us if we could get a Buk Blong Mormon and a King James Bible to put on display there to represent some of their religions.....of course we said YES!
The betel nut habit is a real national problem for Solomons. It is a stimulant and causes crime, ruins lives, is dirty and destroys whole mouths.
We had great meetings with good leaders that are wanting to learn how to do things right. We have seen an Improvement from our last trip.
Betelnut stands!! Yuck. They chew and then project... A huge amount out of their mouths anywhere they want to. The sidewalks are red and so are their teeth. It makes them aggressive.
I call this picture, Good And Evil. You see the top of a new large District church building being built. What you see outside the walls are mainly Betel Nut stands.... The real downfall of the Solomon Islands. So glad this isn't a problem in Vanuatu!
