In March, we were joined by our new teammates, Casey and Val Ellis. They are from the US and have two boys: Beckett (4) and Julian (1). Back when Beckett was about 6 months old, they visited us in the village and started talking to their friends, families, and the church where they ministered (in New Jersey) about coming to work with us in Vanuatu.
For now, Casey and Val are settling in to a village about an hour's drive north of our village in our same language group. They are learning culture and language and determining where to settle in for the long-haul.
We are so excited to have the Ellis family on board with us, and are grateful they can be in the language group when we are on furlough back in the US. Please pray for Casey, Val, Beckett and Julian, for their adjustment, relationships, and language learning and that God would use them to bring North Ambrym men, women, and children to Himself for His glory.
