We arrived in YY (I can only give initials for the safety of the missionaries here) to the reception of a few dozen believers greeting us in (from what I hear) a very toned down culturally appropriate greeting. They gave us all flower necklaces kind of like a lea that would get in Hawaii. Anyway the ladies went right for the kids and Lauren and the guys helped us unload the stuff we brought in for the next 2 months. We got a tour of the village and it was pretty overwhelming. The people are amazingly friendly and seem to want to help us in our orientation. The houses the people live in vary in size but are all essentially the same design and materials used. They are houses built on a post platform with 100% bush materials… A bark floor called limbum, walls made kind of with a log cabin feel, a leaf roof, and even doors and cut out windows. Although it is definitely jungle here the community seems to do a great job keeping living areas and footpaths clear of the overgrowing bush. We cannot wait to post more pictures and stories of our experiences so keep watching!!!
