We’re happy to report that we finally reached Eleuthera: one of the ‘family islands’ that make up the Bahamas group.We had been given a name of someone that would probably be able to help with accommodation but the problem was that his phone seemed to stay switched off & so we weren’t able to contact him before arriving. Proceeding by faith, we made a detour around the airport taxis & started hitch hiking (with our suitcases). Cars are few & far between in these little islands so we were pleased when the first one stopped & took us all the way down to our destination at Tarpum Bay—a picturesque little town about 24 miles away. We found that our contact hadn’t heard about us & that all available rooms at his Mission House were already taken up with a group of young people visiting from the US!
Changing gears a little, we decided to ask some of the local guest houses if they could donate a room for 3 nights to help us conduct our drug-awareness programs in the schools. Here is Mrs Marilyn Munroe and friends that answered our prayer by giving us a whole cottage for the time we needed!
In our first week on Eleuthera, we’ve visited a number of different schools, like this one below:
