Mama Sarah from Ohlen

Muddy feet after tracting!
I hope you all had a wonderful week! Things here in Santo are going pretty well.  Sista Tonga and I will be staying together for another six weeks and so we sat down on Sunday and set some big goals.  Santo is struggling and so is our area, but we are going to be part of a miracle mission and are going to change things.  

This week we made an exchange with the sistas in Pump Station.  I spent the day in Pump Station with Sista Ardos, from Pompey, a small island in Micronesia.  She is quite the character!  She was trained by Sista Tonga and you can tell!  They are very similar but it was still fun to teach with her and learn from her.  She is a ball of energy and got me fired up!

Sista Sellesin called me last night and told me that Mama Sarah passed away this past Tuesday.  For those of you who don't remember, she is a lady that Sista Tagini and I taught in Ohlen and she just loved me because we had the same first name.  Sista Sellesin and I visited her every week until I came to Santo.  It was really sad news to hear, but she is much happier where she is now and I cannot wait to see her again.  I had the chance to talk on the phone with her a few weeks ago, but she couldn't really speak or answer any questions.  I am so thankful for the knowledge that we have that this life isn't the end.  The next time I see Mama Sarah she will be healthy and happy resurrected person- I can't wait!

The crabs that come out at night.
We invited Robson to be baptized last night.  He says he wants to with all his heart, but he can't because he lives on land owned by his chief.  This chief is an avid member of the Anglican Church and won't allow anyone in his tribe to join another church and continue to live on his land.  Robson is a father of 3 pikinini and can't risk losing his home.  Sista Tonga and I testified that the Lord would provide a way and that he needed to trust God.  We asked him to go and talk to his chief and see what he says.  The spirit was so strong and Robson felt it.  He is a great father and really wants to do what is right.  Please keep him in your prayers.  
Well, that's a wrap for this week.  I love hearing from you all!  Thanks for all you do.
