Still working on the house

Here I get some help from Zoe and Caleb as we finish off the deck. It's been neat to see how the kids really want to be a part of what we're doing.

Christmas fun

We had a great time at Christmas in Kabaman. It was fun to be able to spend time with each other in our own house. We spent Christmas at home, but were also able to take a couple of short trips around. We went on a family hike to a little waterfall not far from where we live. This was great fun for the kids. Another trip we were able to take was slightly further away, and a little bit more relaxing for Mom and Dad. We and our partners hired a boat and went to an uninhabited island in the mddle of the south pacific. It was incredible! Picture perfect white sand, palm trees, coral reef, absolutely amazing water... I should probably stop there! You have to see it to experience it. It's just one of the little blessings we knew nothing about when we came here. Isn't God great?

Out and About

Melissa and I enjoy time out with our friends Sali and Mata. They have spent a lot of time teaching us their language and helping us understand how they do things. Here we are spending some time with them in their garden learning how they grow their food.
Sali and I are standing and looking out over the area that he has cleared for his garden. It is truly a monrstrous amount of work when you realize that all of this is done by hand!
