Nabua and Taveuni July 12 2013

This is one of our favorite quotes at the school in Nabua.

8:00 am and the first toothbrushing of the day!

A good demo of soap-on-a-rope!

The master schedule at Nabua. I have found that ALL the schools have the regular toothbrush wash daily and once each year everyone receives new toothbrushes! This is a great idea because lots of homes don't have water.

Ponipate had the WAF come to this 'office' to get cell phone reception!

Our ferry ride to Taveuni.

The sister missionaries went with us to Taveuni. 

Yes, He is and you can buy cookies and juicy.

This sign is obvious!

This is the branch Pres Semisi mowing at the chapel in Tacilevu. This good brother stopped us in town and said he saw us go by their chapel on a Sunday afternoon and he wants us to come to church there. We will do this soon. They have no water there and he needs some help with this problem. Communication is difficult. When we saw him in town and asked him to spell his name because we couldn't understand him, he hesitated and then stopped a man walking by and had him write it for us. He then opened his Book of Mormon and showed us his name written. We love this humble brother!

I love the multiple businesses in one room.  Under the billiard table are car and truck tires and along the wall are coolers of fish! 
The small wood storage shed is starting to lean a bit, but not to worry, a stick will keep it from falling over!
