Saturday, April 25
All of the local kids came back yesterday from school on another part of the island. The singing in the church is amazing when everybody is there! The church is concrete so everything resonates. The kids played baseball and jumped rope under the house. Since the school age kids are gone during the week, this is a great chance for our kids to make friends.

Sunday, April 26
The first bell rang at 5:15 this morning, 50 times again. The second one rang around 6:15, and church began around 7:00. After church during the announcements, the chief announced that we were now full fledged members of the community. We are honored and anticipating being able to bring food to the next community gathering. Several people brought food by today, some yummy cassava pudding (lelenga) and some fish.
