Dinner and a Chat

My first Saturday night in Honiara, I was invited to the home of the pastor of our church in Honiara.  Our daughter Emily and his daughters and niece were close friends.  A small feast had been prepared!

After we ate dinner, we squeezed into the vehicle I was driving and delivered a niece to the wharf, where she boarded a ship going to Noro in the Western Solomons where she works for a tuna canning company.






Then we went up to the house where I was staying so we could connect to the internet and the family had a chat with Emily back in Dallas thanks to Skype.  It was 4 am for Emily, but she didn’t mind.  This family provided a second home for Emily a few years ago.
