Back in Vava'u

Hello everyone! Sorry for the lack of updates lately, but now that I'm back at my site I should be able to start blogging again.

To wrap up my time in America, I spent a couple days giving presentations about Tonga. I spoke to classes at Highland Middle School, Reynolds High School, and the Sunday School classes of St. Mark's, all of which were great audiences. I loved sharing my stories, and I hope others enjoyed them, too.

When I arrived back in Tonga, I attended a training session with the rest of Group 76. It was great to see all of the other volunteers from different islands and catch up.

Now that I'm back in Vava'u, I'm just cleaning my house and getting ready to start school. Next Monday, we begin planning week and the following week is the first week of school. I'm excited to get back to school, see all of the Mailefihi staff, and meet the new students.

Here's to a great 2012!


  1. You should be the most popular person in Tonga with all the chocolate you took back. Say hey to all your Peace Corps friends from me. Wish you were still at home....I'm a little dehydrated from crying so much. Love you bunches. Dad

  2. Have a great school term! Your presentation was great at Highland - thank you for sharing! Miss you more than I can say. Lots of love.

  3. Hello from Weatherhead!

    It appears as though you are having an amazing time in Tonga! I hope that at some point the school could highlight your experiences...I'm sure that you have so much to share.

    Take care and be safe!
    Tiffany ( case you forgot me!)
