Fred & Timo baptism

Our friends Loui & Monique live right near Houghton & Gretchen.  They have been a great help to us with language and cultural acquisition and it has been great fellowshipping with them as ni-Vanuatu believers.  Their boys, Fred & Timo, were baptized while my parents came to stay and we were all invited to the service and the following feast that night.  (Be aware that some of the following pictures are graphic.)

It was fun to have mom and dad here and get to show them things that we thought were crazy and new when we first came and see their reactions to everything.  Alas, I was unable to convince my dad of the amazingness of soursop.  He couldn't get over the texture.  So here are some other first experiences for my parents during their time in Vanuatu.  Enjoy.

Visited by the parents!

Well, I imagine anytime you are far from home and have a visit from someone from home, it is lovely.  And so much more so when you've been far from home for several years!  My parents came for a nice, long 3 weeks of visiting.  Here's the first batch of pictures from our time together.

I have more pictures now since I got over my Dengue fever and ventured out of my house again.  :) The Richards and Kenners got some great shots, so I'll add more when I have a chance as well.
