These twelve men are amazing. They left whatever they were doing and came to help us get the root crops off the boat. It's like getting a call to go move someone in the ward, but look how happy they were to do it. We sure appreciate them!!!

In the corner are bundles of bananas.  The crops had to sit on the dock for so long because of bad weather, the first bananas ripened and they were given to a school in Eua.  This is the second try at getting them to Ha'api.

Inside the bags are Kamas.  They are the Tongan sweet potato and we like them the best of all the root crops.  They will be a real treat!

These are Taro roots.  It is a lot of work to dig them up, but they will feed a lot of people in Ha'api.
