Elder and Sister Williams, Church auditors assigned to the Vanuatu, Port Vila Mission, stayed with us for a week while they completed the Branch and District audits. 

Elder and Sister Williams are from the Seattle area, and have been in the mission for just 6 weeks.  They have already visited many of the Vanuatu islands and completed audits there.
They are very adventurous, energetic, and hard working.
One rainy day we drove them out to the West end of Guadalcanal. 


Rivers were brown with mud and full to their banks.

We saw the only cows on the island. The Solomon Island Government is trying to establish a herd.
This Solomon Island woman is carrying her produce to market.

The actual sign at the museum about a mile off the main road.

Elder Williams is a pilot and he really enjoyed seeing all of the WWII aircraft.
On Thursday, while the Williams were here, there was a "World Women's Day" breakfast held at the Mendana Hotel.  The church sponsored a table. Sister Williams, 8 RS sisters, and Cheryle attended.  It was a great event where women of the Solomons Islands were honored for their contributions to the nation.
The ladies were especially happy with their bags.  They contained a t-shirt and a mug.
The Williams were such thoughtful, good guests.
We loved having them stay with us while they were here in the Solomons.
We feel like we have found another brother and sister!
It's amazing how the Lord has blessed us with many new friends on our mission.
