It has been a joy to see a number of families here complete their work and many more are near completion to the praise of His glory.
May I say that Vanuatu is in such a huge need for more families!
Last month Jesiah and Houghton were able to take a quick trip out to North Ambrym to make sure all was a "go" for us to make the move. It was awesome for Si to be able to be there with dad for the initial visit and I know that it has encouraged him in the work that God has for him in North Ambrym. Here are some photos from their trip...
The boys in front of the ship that took them to North Ambrym.
Jesiah, just after the boat took off from Vila. The trip there went smoothly for which they were very grateful! It was a fairly quick boat trip (only about 12 hours one way) compared to the 28 hour one that Hought took last time. :)
Enjoying some comic book reading to pass the time. Si is on the upper deck in this pic and you can see that it was night time.
Si is holding some kumala (like sweet potato) and the kid on the far left is holding some sugar cane.
During rainy season this little "hole" fills up with rain water and provides a great way to cool off. You can see the tiny little white and blue Si jumping into the water below.
Breaking open some coconuts to eat the little white ball that is growing on the inside. Blech! But the kids love it. :)
Si on the coast eating a coconut. Just a walk away from where our house will be built.
Talking to mom. ;) I am so thankful that there are cell towers on the islands now so we can still stay in touch when on the island. You can see that Si is on the coast, ocean just to his right, volcanic rock all around. Cool eh?
