Back to Ambae!

Ambae hasn't had rain for several months so many families are hurting.  The kids up in the hills and mountains miss the water in the dried up rivers so they come down to the saltwater to swim.
We went to Lolotinge and  Loviatalao and had meetings with the Branch Presidents and clerks....
Then Saturday went to a beautiful baptism of 2 children in the sea.   We gave the prayers in Bislama...  
Later that day had meetings with 3 more branch presidents.   Great people.   We also enjoyed getting to know the elders on Ambae...  Great young men!   Live is good on Ambae!

Washing cloths.....  Not much water in the river....

Walking and walking and walking on Ambae....  To store 25min each way.   To church. 20  each way.  
From the baptism 25 minutes each way...    Love the peaceful walks!!


And one of my favorite is Elder Williams Ambae "Kleenex"!
