We would really like to tell you about some of the great people that we are working with now. I need to be better about getting pictures of them in more casual situations. The pictures that we take of them for their applications look like mug shots. I will start with Fredline and Merrie.
Fredline has had a grade six education, and Merrie has had a grade eight. Both girls want to go to school. Merrie would really like to be a nurse. This is practically impossible. She would need to take classes to get her to a grade twelve eguivalency. This would take at least three years. Then she would have to accepted into the one and only nursing program in the country. This program only accepts thirty students a year. We are constantly in need of inspiration from the Lord to assist these students. The best part is that the students fast and pray for us to receive that guidance!
Currently, we have both girls taking computer classes - basic skills, word processing, and spread sheets. The hope is that Merrie can get a job in the hospital or a doctor's office. This would be a foot in the door in the medical field. She would make a wonderful receptionist. Fredline's family has a low key tourist operation on Tanna. They own property at the base of a volcano. She will plan on returning to Tanna and improve the family business. They both want to return to Tanna!
