The Pandanus Tree is very unique and useful. Its leaves are very strong and used for the weaving of mats, hats, purses, etc. But what makes this tree so unique is that it can actually move itself! See the long roots that are above ground. If the tree is not getting enough sunlight it will send out new roots in the direction of the sunlight and over time move itself to a better spot. It's large round fruit can grow to the size of a basketball!

They spent many hours filming interviews with students, facutly, staff, local board members, pastors, and members of the community. They also filmed just about every aspect of life at PIBC that they could get that happen the the last week of March. Here Ken is getting ready to interview Hiob our Dean of Men in our lovey outside "studio" under the spreading palms of our campus.
The last day Ken and Janae were on island we spent taking them around the island to get scenic shots. It was a gorgeous Guam day! Here Janae is getting flower shots and grand vista shots from Two Lovers Point.
Ken is at Tanguisan Beach taking pictures of the beautiful tree and coral covered coast line down the beach (You'll have to wait for the promo videos to be done to see what he was filming.)Notice the very, calm, very blue ocean in the background
One of the highlights of Janae's stay was being able to stay in the dorm with the girls. They embraced her as only Micronesian girls can do and she was also presented with her own Chuukese skirt. She is pictured here with Evelyn (our "daughter" and PIBC professor) modeling their skirts.
Thanks Ken and Janae for all your very hard work and maintaining an insane schedule for the week. We look forward to seeing the fruits of your labors.
We'll be praying for you as you produce these materials to further the training of Micronesian nationals to reach out in their own islands and into the 10/40 Window of Asia.
