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)

 We were so excited When Rich sent us back to Tahiti to train our DPAs on how to use Newsroom.  What a perfect way to end our mission!

 After we finished our two day training, our wonderful DPAs had us sit up front, along with Rachel who also joined us for our training.  They all filed past us one by one and each gave us a gift and thanked us for serving them. 

 Here is Frederick and Manea who were so gracious and appreciative of our help and service.  I will never forget our first trip to Tahiti when Frederick met us at the airport with warm greetings and flower leis at 1:00 AM, only to drive us five minutes to our hotel to make sure we were safely settled.

 After opening gifts and taking photos, they sang a beautiful farewell song to us.

In between training sessions we took another trip to the Tahitian Pearl broker and purchased pearls for our girls and the Starleys.

We also had time to visit and have dinner with Rachel's brother and partner.

 Here we are enjoying some down time by the hotel's pool.

 There are 'characters' even in Tahiti!

What a wonderful trip!

And a beautiful sunset over Moorea to remember.
