Wallis and Futuna Islands


We arrived on Wallis Island and got a little hotel room. The next morning my wife, Denise, and I started off with the cross. Reporters from the local television and radio stations arrived. Someone had phoned them. The television station filmed us for several hours.

People rushed from their homes to garland us with flowers and welcome the cross. We prayed with so many to come to Jesus. The local priest came to see the cross and talk and have a prayer. He was very kind.

At the end of the day I had 20 garlands of flowers! We met such wonderful people on Wallis and will always remember how they loved and welcomed us and the cross.

Pilgrim followers of Jesus,
