PORT VILA, Vanuatu — Welcome to Voices-only Wednesday, when we surf the Internet to bring you the best a cappella videos we can find.

This week I’m in the middle of the South Pacific (well, on an island, anyway) and have just a few minutes to share a snippet of “How Great Thou Art” translated into Bislama, one of the national languages of Vanuatu. 

It’s been an incredible journey as I’ve talked to souls on two of this nation’s islands — about their faith and their recovery after the devastating Cyclone Pam a few months ago. Look for more posts from here and other parts of the South Pacific soon.

Here’s another arrangement by another recording artist, Benjamin Everson.
