Yesterday, we anticipated the Lavukal translation team to arrive on the Kosco. When Aaron called the office, he discovered that the ship was still way out west and hadn't reached Marulaon yet. The ship's office didn't expect the ship to arrive in Honiara until late Thursday night because the engine was having problems again.
The translation team had only scheduled a few days together to work before the ship returned on Sunday. But if the ship's engines need time for repair, then most likely the Kosco won't be returning to the Russells on Sunday, and the guys would be stuck in Honiara indefinitely. So Aaron has made the wise choice to cancel to be a good steward of both time and money.
