As you might be aware Vanuatu is a group of Islands off the coast of Australia. It is home to the ni-Van's of which there are about 200,000 spread accross many larger and smaller Islands.

Currently there is an ecclesia in Port Vila the capital, with over 20 members. The members of the Port Vila are spread over a number of the surrounding Islands.

Vanuatu is a great place to preach because the people have already been introduced to Christianity by missionaires that came during and after WWII. They are a very friendly people, with a lot of time to spare.

The main language in Vanuatu is Bislama, a version of Pigin english with a tinge of French (which is also spoken).

The Truth is growing in Vanuatu, and field workers are  always in demand for there is a lot of work to be done.
