 Elder Kanzler putting things back in their place after completion of the floor tile project.

 President's assistant, Elder Liufau.

 The tile crew.

Removing dirt from the new mission home excavation pile.

 The excavators buried the driveway. Hopefully we will get to use it again some day.

 The first floor over the garage area at the new mission home is poured.

 Workers preparing to pour the floor.

 Each pile of rocks used to be a boulder ... all broken by hand.

 New mission home/office well.

 Digging the well by the gate.

 Refurbishing a fishing boat.

 Packing the cracks with "bag". They shred a heavy bag and use the fibers to fill gaps.

 Shaping a new board to fit flush.

 After the gaps are filed with fibers the gap is sealed. The captain at left in the picture was very happy to show us the work they were doing. He wanted us to come and buy snapper from him.

 The crack sealant is made by pouring gasoline on chunks of styrofoam. It creates a gooey silly putty that is waterproof.

 The hole in the back of the boat is where they put the motor.

The rainy season has arrived and ferns and moss are coming to life everywhere.

  1. Gasoline on styrofoam? Who ever figured that out? You must shake your head every day at the differences in cultures.
