This morning our friends Joey and Daniel started out on the long hike out of Mawerero and down to the beach. They have been here for 12 days and it was so nice to enjoy fellowship with some Americans!

Joey is the director of Finisterre Vision. He came to see our village and administer our first language check (first of four language checks) – more on that in another post coming soon. He spent his days working on house projects at the Dodds’ house, hanging out with us, and spending time with people from our village – and some guys who hiked in from Mibu (a village a couple days’ hike away where Joey used to live).

Daniel is a young guy that Joey met in Colorado. He has a heart for missions and came to check out the work here. He had asked to be matched up with a guy here who could teach him the trade language and host him in his hut. So Daniel spent his days with Jepri, as well as helping Joey with house projects and helping us with cooking and the boys.

Here are some pictures:

When they first arrived, our visitors were given flowers and food.

While Joey and Daniel were here, we had a surprise visit from Barbara - an SIL missionary who has been in a nearby village for 20 years. It was great to host her and hear about her work.

We forgot to take a group picture until the very last night…hence the grainy-ness.
