|Hufangalupe or "Pigeons Gate" on the Southeastern|
shore. Natural land bridge formed by the collapsed
roof of a sea cave.
|Secluded Southeastern beach. It may|
be secluded because it's hard to get to.
Video taken from Camp Makeke look-out area. It is at the top of the
waterfront cliffs that are approximately 125 ft above the water level.
|Elder and Sister Killary - Managers at|
Camp Makeke. You can see a Pavillion
and a few small bunk houses in the
background. The rugby field is to the
left (we just caught the end of it before
the goal posts were put up).
|Mission Leadership Council - I won't try to list all their|
names but yes, we know (and love) them all!
You can also find two new short stories that have been added to the Stories of Faith section this week. They can be accessed by selecting "Stories of Faith" from the menu near the top of the page (or by clicking here). One of these stories is about a humbling experience I had as a young father (story # 5). The other is a story from my youth and a lesson I learned from it some 40 years later (story #6). They are both experiences that have had an impact on the person I am today (sometimes I learn life lessons much slower than I should).

Just because I know you are wondering ... it's 12:50 A.M. Sunday here and the dang rooster in our back yard is crowing! KFC is sounding really good about now.
To all you professional photographers, please remember that we are just using our iPhones and just taking shots of what we see ... not necessarily trying to do anything more than just capture our memories. Some photos are even taken through car windows as we do our best to capture our experiences in Tonga. I have a dash-cam and maybe one of these next few posts will include the harrowing driving experience that is also Tonga. We hope you enjoy our pics, videos and test as we document our mission.
This is a video of a popular Eastern beach. It was taken
the same day as the earlier video but the waves to the East
were nowhere near what we saw to the South.
|This photo was taken on a popular East beach. We took our lunch with us|
so we could eat here after we visited some sick missionaries nearby.
It was during the day when school was in so it was very vacant and beautiful.
|Lepeka near the edge of Hufangalupe (mentioned above). |
Taking this photo was as close as I got to the edge.
|Lepeka communicating with the missionaries while we|
wait for the others to arrive for dinner. We're early ...
