Sun, sand, a little swim and a little lunch. Met a couple from France and a couple from Seattle in the restaurant in Port Orly (amazing). We rarely see another American. It is a little village (one restaurant and no stores that we could see), but beautiful beach and clear, warm water!

Had a great day with the Luganville, Santo Zone missionaries! What an amazing group of young men and women! Love them! We set the table for 20 hungry missionaries to have a pancake breakfast. They arrived on our deck around 9:00am after doing a service project from the church to our home of picking up garbage.
Later had a talent show.....starting out with us old couples. Then we were entertained with a drama, music and cultural dance! Some of the talent acts I only got on video and I can't put video on my blog....

We had a great experience of attending a wedding in the branch in Palon. A young couple that had been living together and had 2 children are now coming to church and want to live the Gospel and receive blessings.
After president Kelley married them, they had talks. Elder Williams gave a great one sharing about our family with pictures and all and the importance of looking towards the temple now for this couple. I gave the closing prayer.
This is President Kelly
This is how they cook laplap.....hot coals and banana leaves! About 200- 300 for dinner!
Then the customs of Vanuatu came out. I guess some in the family are of the Anglican religion. we had lots of custom dances and entertainment.
They use baby powder when there is something to be happy about.......so we got powdered!
Their son wasn't to happy with it all. He just wanted to sleep I think... Look at daddy's coat!
