By ten this morning, we needed a second pot of coffee.  Thankfully, my brother and sister-in-law sent us some from the Ogeechee River Coffee Company in Savannah.  (If you are planning to be in the Savannah area, check out my sister-in-law's culinary blog, it makes me hungry!).  Our newest SITAG colleague stopped by to visit and to help us drink coffee while we worked.  She offered to help, too, but at this point her sweet company was the best thing she could offer!

Aaron is getting ready to go pick up the NguzuNguzu books from the printer, and the rest of us just keep on packing and chipping away.  We always grieve with the packing, it's so hard to say goodbye to friends and places, but we're listening to some of our favorite music while we pack, and somehow it helps Aaron and me as we sing along with the cello part.

It's makes me smile to think you are enjoying coffee from the U.S. while I enjoy coffee from the S.I. Kind of ironic isn't it?

Enjoy that music!

It must be so comforting for new folks to have 'veterans' on hand to help them get their bearings. Seems like quite a wonderful SITAG community!

Again, so sorry about Aaron's loss of his grandma. Glad you have the technology to 'visit' with her recently.

I'm also sorry to hear about your husband's loss. So Marulaon is another island? I've googled to see and that is what I am thinking, though google would like to send you to New South Wales.

Praying God's peace and comfort for you as you grieve losing a loved one and another move and also enjoy the blessing new friends, fellowship and good coffee. Aren't we complex and wonderfully made beings???

Yeah, Marulaon is the name of the tiny island and the village where we live among the Lavukal people. The island is about one mile by two miles and where we call home! We come back to Honiara to buy groceries and rest, then we go back to Marulaon to continue working on Bible Translation. We're so thankful God put us here :-)
