Chatham Islands

December 2006

We made the long trip from Denver to the Chatham Islands to complete carrying the cross in all the major Pacific Island groups.

We flew to New Zealand and then from there the Chatham Islands. We stayed in a lovely guest house in the only village there. Denise my wife and Sophia our daughter were with me. We rented a car and I carried the cross around the island.

The people were lovely and welcoming. We prayed with several to give their lives to Jesus. There were by far more sheep than people.

The walk with the cross was relaxing and restful in the splendid beauty of the nature.

Glory to God, I do love the people of the Pacific Islands and the lifestyle on most of the islands.

Pilgrim followers of Jesus,
