Vanuatu

I just got back from Vanuatu, performing Jonah with translation into Nafe, a language spoken by only a couple of hundred people. I also got to preach a brief sermon on Jonah in Nafe. Unbelievable!

This nation that practiced cannibalism 150 years ago has been voted "The Planet's Happiest Country," because missionaries introduced them to the Prince of Peace.

Except for the lack of cannibalism and the addition of cell phones and four-wheel-drive trucks it felt like we were going back 150 years! Most of the homes were built as they had been then, and there were no paved roads on the side of the island I visited.

Of the 31 nations I've now visited I thought it to be one of the loveliest places I've ever seen!
