Rebuild Day 5: Sunday 9 August 2015

Sunday. A chance to sleep in a little before heading off to church on Ifira Island. What a blessing this turned out to be, as the service was celebrating the 70th anniversary of the birth of the PWMU – and it was begun by Ms Skinner who was a missionary from NZ. The whole service was taken by the PWMU and it was incredibly special to be there, a bunch of New Zealanders, who are there in partnership with the PWMU.

After church we were honoured guests while the cake was cut and the food was served.

Ifira is a beautiful island and it was very sobering to see the damage done by the cyclone. On the way back to Port Vila, we also saw quite a number of boats wrecked by the cyclone as well.

All feeling refreshed tonight and ready for the last few days.

Blessings from the Team, Jon, Caleb, Simon, Marty, David and Paul.
