This morning God gave us calm seas for Aaron's trip to Marulaon. We drove down to the wharf early to find a place on the Kosco for Aaron & the guttering, hardware, and pipes he is taking for Fly Harbour School's rain tanks.
The landing crafting Phoenix was "next door" loading. This ship is the one our colleagues here often take out to South Malaita.
This cutie was eating a few cookies for breakfast while last minute passengers flooded the ship.
Everybody got last minute hugs an kisses from Aaron. Except me, since men and women can't display affection in public. I had already gotten my goodbye hugs and kisses at home.
Aaron called from the boat around 10:00 saying the boat was finally pulling out, only an hour later than the scheduled time. He will be meeting with the Lavukal translators tonight and all day tomorrow. Then on Tuesday, he hopes to lead a language development workshop with our Marulaon community. The Kosco should return on Wednesday morning, so Aaron will have a very brief stay in the village this time. We appreciate prayers for him and the translators!
