The LDS Primary School (Elementary)
There is such a warm positive feeling at the school. The Principal Brother Qaqa (Gan-ga) is such a kind, humble man, but he has a wonderful vision to improve the quality of education for the students. Don't you love the signs he has up? There is also one that says, "I Know My Savior Lives."
Mike and Brother Qaqa, (Gan-ga) the Primary School Principal
This past weekend we went to a resort with 2 other missionary couples. This is the greeter. When we arrived he opened the gate and shouted, "Bula!"
This is a view of the Outrigger Resort from the main balcony of the lobby. We just had a relaxing day hanging out.
We passed this group of guys on our way to the Outrigger. They were getting ready to have a feast of pig. They were so funny. When we stopped to take their picture, they were all cheering. Then Sunday at church we heard a talk that reminded me of this picture. There was a family visiting the branch who were from Santa Barbara, California and the Branch President asked them to bear their testimony. The father of the family said they wanted to have a lovo (luau) before they left for home. So they took their rental car up into the hills and captured a wild pig. They loaded the pig into their car and with the help of their host family they had a wonderful lovo of roast pig. However, they noticed their car smelled terrible from the pig. They washed and shampooed the seats, but it still smelled like pig. They used fabric fresheners and perfumes but the car still smelled like pig. He compared the smell of pig to sin. No matter how hard we try, we can not remove the effects of "pig" (sin ) from our life. Only through faith in Jesus Christ can we be clean from the smell of "pig".

Just a few thoughts we have had about the country. Things we thought were interesting.
