Our new Tongan families

There is a large community of Tongan immigrants living in Dallas and Houston. They have been so loving, welcoming us into the family. It feels like we're back home in the village again!
We eat Tongan food together, sing, joke, and speak Tongan obviously. Then on weekends the men get together for their traditional kava ceremony. Isaac was invited to this one. As you can see he is wearing his lavalava while drinking from a coconut shell.
'Osi is thankful to be able to play his guitar with the guys and sing Tongan songs again. He's even learning how to play the eukelele!
