Talofa! ('Hello' in Tuvaluan)
We arrived in Funafuti, Tuvalu on Thursday, May the 1st. We were greeted by brilliant sunshine and a moderate temperature of 90 degrees....and this was at noonday! On this Thursday as is usual every Tuesday and Thursday, most of the population of this island come to watch the flight arrive from Suva, Fiji. It was wonderful seeing the faces of the people God has commissioned us to reach with the Gospel and it is certain that it didn't take long for it to be spread abroad that there is a Pelangi (White) couple in Tuvalu and much curiosity as to why we are here.
Within a few days of our arrival, with the Lord's divine provision, we were able to rent an apartment (called a flat) here in the Island. We have now settled in and are beginning to make friends with those we see both on the street and in the shops and neighborhoods. God is beginning to open doors in this nation, and we are excited about the wonderful things we see on the horizon. We look forward to updating you on what God is doing in this island nation of Tuvalu. Thank you for praying for us as we work for the Lord in Tuvalu.
In His Service,
