Wedding in Palon

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

We dropped gifts at their feet on the mat and shook hands and then the cake cutting and food began

This is how they cook 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 we got powdered!

Their son wasn't to happy with it all.  He just wanted to sleep I think... Look at daddy's coat!
