This morning my computer refused to start. It's a 12 year old desktop and I have already replaced the motherboard 3 or 4 times.

Since the problem is less obvious this time I'm hesitating if it's worth the wait and money to order a motherboard again. I'm not sure that it will solve the problem.

We have another laptop, my backup solution. The children normally use it for school and art but it broke completely a couple of months ago. It was 13 years old.

I don't own a mobile and the iPad we got refuse to charge...

There are no real computer stores with spare parts etc. here in Neiafu. Very few used computers become available and the taxes to receive one from abroad are huge. About 50% of the cost based on price + shipping.

So, there will not be much developing from me in the near future as I don't have the money to order something from abroad.

If you need to contact me, email is currently the only way that works. I'm unable to view and reply to messages in my app for the reasons given above.

We need your prayers, not only for the computer, but also because it is probably time for us to move from the village in the very near future.

God bless!
