Teaching in timeless Tuvalu

In the Polynesian paradise of Tuvalu, children play soccer on the runway of the international airport — at least when planes aren’t landing.
Missionary Robert Martin spent nine days on the atoll (a ring of coral encircling a lagoon) of 4,490 souls in the South Pacific nation of “timeless Tuvalu.”
He worked with a small Church of Christ in the city of Funafuti and conducted nightly Bible studies at an extension campus of the University of the South Pacific. He also distributed gospel tracts and Bible correspondence courses.
About eight to 12 people attended each study, Martin said. The missionary taught lessons from Ephesians about “The beautiful body — church.”
“What a joy to see people who are so eager to study and learn more about the Bible,” Martin said. The Forest Park Church of Christ in Georgia supports Martin’s work.
