Hand Painted in TAVEUNI -- Latest By rLn

Juda's shirt -- an example of the motif used for the scouts' (boys and girls) school trip to Suva. i painted tagimoucia designs until the very day of the trip! i felt like a factory worker -- but i handpainted everything, each flower and leaf one at a time, so each person had an rLn original.

Miriama with her just-painted sulu... just in time for her visit to Raki Raki (Viti Levu) for her momo's wedding.

Jo, Leone and Kani -- in their "going to church" Bula-rLn shirts... complete with their personal Bible verses (vaka Viti) on the back.

Her very own salusalu -- my sister In CHRIST from the Assembly of GOD church in Matei...

A two-meter sulu -- about the SPIRIT... at The Shoppe, Delia's unique boutique store.

For Matawalu's wedding anniversary -- 1 Corinthians 13:4-8...

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.

Miri's sulu, front...

Miri's sulu, back... with John 3:16 in vaka Vita and English as she requested.

For GOD so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
Liva Liva's sulu -- from her nau Vane from Naselesele Village...

P.S. i am again raising funds for the Naselesele Village school children in Taveuni, Fiji. Your charitable donation of any amount is deeply and heartfully appreciated! GOD bless your loving heart!

WASTE of Breath, Money, LIFE!

The Naselesele Village Primary School kicks off the Drug Awareness Week with this poster-board, which will be posted near the road in Matei-Naselesele area.

WASTE of breath -- tobacco, cigarettes, suki, marijuana... every puff kills (sooner or later, cancer wins -- you lose).

WASTE of money -- alcohol, beer, wine, yaqona... every sip is poison that burns a hole in your liver and in your wallet.

WASTE of life -- can your loved ones truly rest in peace, knowing your life was wasted?

And so, dear brothers and sisters, i plead with you to give your bodies to GOD because of all He has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind He will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship Him. (Romans 12:1)

KRISTIKA -- Love One Another

JESUS said, "This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you." (Matthew 15:12)

My young friend, Kristika.

Drug Awareness Week -- DRUGS 'n' SLUGS

Drug Awareness Week kicks off this week, June 20-24. This anti-drug banner will be posted around Matei area.

Home brew is now against Naselesele Village laws. Anyone caught making home brew will be prosecuted by the Village elders. (The penalty is severe -- the perpetrator is kicked out of the village!)

When i was in high school, we watched a video of a drunk's brain being cut up in pieces, showing how alcohol affects the brain -- that alcohol kills brain cells.

The Naselesele Village kids are urged to "Think pure, act smart -- don't even start!"

Drugs are for thugs 'n' bugs 'n' lazy slugs
Alcohol 'n' home brew are just bad news for you!
Use not, drink not -- or your brain will rot.
Think pure, act smart... don't even start!

P.S. i am again raising funds for the Naselesele Village school children in Taveuni, Fiji. Your charitable donation of any amount is deeply and heartfully appreciated! GOD bless your loving heart!
