When we arrived, these young men welcomed us to their little shack they had constructed to sleep in. They have no belongings except one kerosene lantern, a toothbrush, a pair of work clothes, and a T shirt and shorts to wear when they are not working. They had cut grass and laid it on the dirt floor of the shack for cushion and then spread old tarps over the grass.
As we sat with them, they were so excited to hear the gospel and were very vigorous learners. The elders were teaching in Fijian so we understood little but generally we could tell what was going on. They told us that they had taken turns during the week, each reading in the Book of Mormon at night by the single lantern. While the lesson was going on, Mom was helping to illustrate a point the elders were making by showing a picture in the Gospel Art book. You can't believe how enamored the boys were with the art. They own nothing, have no entertainment whatever, and so this book of gospel picture illustrations was like a treasure. The oldest boy would not share it when others tried to take it from him, he just kept staring at each picture during the whole lesson but kept an ear out for what was being taught. It was very spiritual, invigorating, and humbling (as usual) to see how much the gospel can mean to thirsty souls looking for meaning in life.
Here's some video footage of the boys and their "home" during the lesson:
