I'm So Excited!

I've mentioned a time or twenty that I have friends doing translation work in the Solomon Islands,
specifically on a little island in the Russell Islands,
called Marulaon.

Recently investors visited their village and posted this video.

I think I can pick out their house!

I know, it's easy to me to see the video and soak in all the incredible beauty of the area,
and imagine it to be a tropical paradise.  And it is, but...
that doesn't make it an easy place to live.
While they good relationships and much-loved friends in the village,
the conditions are primitive and for Westerners like us...
well, my friends don't complain, but life is difficult and challenging.

Take four minutes, and get yourself an eyeful of Marulaon Village :D

While I was watching your video an alert came up on my computer about a 7.7 mag earthquake hitting the Solomon Islands and so I prayed for your friends right then. Hope all is well with them. Thank you for sharing the video.

Thanks for the heads-up and the prayers for my friends!

Picking out their house was our top priority, too - after looking for them in the welcome crowd. :)
