Please pray for those who have suffered loss in Vanuatu

Greetings from Mike and Rob in Port Vila

Yesterday, Saturday, it was a case of shock, relief and a sense of disbelief at the widespread destruction resulting from Tropical Cyclone Pam

Today, it’s sunny, still, hot and humid, and the reality of rebuilding, starting again, and in some cases dealing with the violent and tragic loss of family members is hitting home.

Please pray for the reconstruction effort and if possible consider making a donation through,…

Mike and I were due to fly home this morning, but the airport is closed until further notice.The 3 day dental conference we were here to attend lasted 4 hours before proceedings were wound up on Thursday to allow people time to adequately prepare for the cyclone’s approach.  A great disappointment, but a small issue compared with what many must now deal with in the aftermath.

Given the number of yachts and boats that have gone aground (80% of the boats in the harbour by one report) after dragging their moorings I am very please Chimere is safely in her Hastings berth back in Victoria
We are yet to hear news from the people and projects with whom we are connected, but early reports suggest the destruction is widespread across most of the 63 inhabited islands that comprise this country.  It might take some to time to hear from the outer regions

  1. Rob and Mike.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you and all of the people of Vanuatu.
    We are grateful for your well being and grieve with and for those who have sustained unbearable losses.
    Jake and Jill

  2. Hello, my name is Martin Garrett. Could Jacob Remyn please call me on 0418 500 921?

    I ask this because I understand that Jake was one of the witnesses to the will of my father, John Garrett, who died late last year. Before we can obtain probate of the will we need to confirm whether Jake still lives at the address he wrote on the will, being 14 Rollington Drive, Ringwood.

    If Jake could call me on 0418 500 921 I would be very grateful.
    Many thanks, Martin Garrett
