Learning about the different uses for the coconut at Uprising Resort! One of the ways to use a green coconut is to pop off the top with a machete and drink the water inside!,
After doing the best I could teaching 5th and 6th grade Math, we had the opportunity to run around with the students at Sote Village. They loved to take pictures and play duck duck goose!
A traditional way to welcome new guests to a village is through a Kava Ceremony. While most of the time it is formal and in a meeting house, for our friend Spencer's birthday we held one at our homestay in the village. This is a picture of our 'Chief' Jeremiah mixing and pouring the kava before handing out the coconut bowls for people to drink from.

  1. I have to say, I have enjoyed looking at your pictures through social media. It is so heart-warming to see that you're teaching children math. Childhood education is a personal passion of mine and it is amazing to watch someone promote from the other side of the world. I am pleased to see that you are also having fun while doing good! Keep up the great display of leadership!
