~ The Island ~

We have been on the island of Nauru for 2 months and a few days. We have learned names, still have a few children's names that we get mixed up like Steve Austin, Pecos, and B Johnson, but it gets easier each week. We have found our way around ~ how do you get lost on an island of approximately 8 square miles?   The heat is something we are getting used to - sort of!!

Life is simple and slow on the island, the people are friendly but generally not too open. The children that come on Sunday morning listen intently  and answer with raised eyebrows, an island habit. Some learn their memory verse and some even remember the Bible story from the week before. They enjoy helping to serve the adults their juice drink after service. Most rather climb the side of the wagon than to climb the stairs.  Kids are kids all over the world.

Teen Time on Friday night went well, some would say the numbers aren't too impressive BUT the boys that attended all responded that they are not sure of their salvation ~ a real matter of prayer!!  They enjoyed the devotion, snacks and games ~ we were thankful that Bro. Junior came along to help.

We are learning to trust the LORD more and more and that is what its all about. We ask you pray concerning our next stop for 'Standing In The Gap'.
