March Travels - Joyce's Adventure in Palau

This last week I traveled to Palau to teach the classroom sessions of my Old Testament History class and to meet with church leaders there. This time Joyce got to travel with me. While I was in class and in meetings she got to travel around, see the sights and hang around with our friends. People tell me that i don't put enough pictures of Joyce on this blog so here are some pictures of her adventures...

On the first day there she visited the Palau monoliths site on Babeldaop

Here she poses on the wall of the old Japanese lighthouse on the Northern end of Babeldaop

Another view from the Japanese lighthouse

Joyce sits in front of the Ngardmau waterfall. Matt and I visited this spot in 1987. It was a little harder to get to back then. 

Another view of the waterfall. Joyce was able to get around the whole island of Babeldaop in one afternoon because of the road that was recently completed. It used to be that if you wanted to go to these places you had to take a boat and then hike inland. I have seen tremendous changes in Palau the last five years because of the road. 

Joyce enjoys her Udong noodles at the Rock Island Cafe in Koror. Palau has a lot of great restaurants, especially if you like Asian and island food. 

The best part is seeing old friends. Left to right: Prima Kual, Joyce and Leah Ngirachemoi. 

Joyce and EJ - EJ is the son of PIU Board member Marcellus Ngiraingas

One more picture with the kids. A couple years ago these were the PIU Guam campus kids and now they are back with their parents ministering in Palau. (Jireh Ngirachemoi, Miget Kual and Micah Ngirachemoi).

I love the photos of very familiar places in Palau, Joyce. Wish I could have taken the trip with you. I probably wouldn't recognize things there these day. I really enjoyed the little photo "tour."
