Dear Family & Friends: We are having so many new and exciting adventures to tell you about. We get up around 5:45am and go as fast as we can until bedtime, learning our new responsibilities and having a peek at this BEAUTIFUL country. We hope in this blog we can express how blessed we are to testify of Jesus Christ and serve Him in this amazing corner of the world! HAERE MAI* to our blog, we're glad you are visiting us!.....(*This means 'WELCOME' in the Maori language)

This lovely family also lost their home to Cyclone Thomas, and members of the Church helped them rebuild.  They are so proud of their home and so grateful.  The oldest boy is the same age as our oldest grandson Taylor.  We couldn't help thinking about how different this young man's life is from our grandson, why people are born into the circumstances they are, and how different their futures will probably be.  But in reality, they both have the same opportunities in the things that matter.  Both young men are happy, have loving parents and siblings, and they have faith in Jesus Christ.  Both are rich in what counts most! 

This is a picture of their toilet facilities and their water supply.  I just couldn't ask if the toilet was hooked up to anything.
