Here is the Bali 2000 group plus kids. We brought two girls from Yogya to be with the children during our meetings.

Children's activities followed a vacation Bible school format on peacemaking. Children l-r: Halla, Isaac, Audrey, Katie.

In 2001 the MCC expats had their retreat on Lombok, the island east of Bali, while the national staff had theirs on Bali. Some of the expats joined the national staff for the last day of their retreat.

The 2001 staff retreat marked Ibu Wati's retirement from MCC service after over 18 years. She began as a household helper and became the Jakarta guesthouse manager. Both her children are university graduates.

The MCC expat retreat in 2001 was on Lombok. Staffer Lilik graciously agreed to be the children's activities director. We were visited by a former MCC Indonesia couple on sabbatical. Things have really changed since the 60s.

It's traditional in Indonesia for everyone to move between photos, and to make one of the pictures less formal.

Snorkeling was one of the retreat 2001 activities. Our group had two of these boats for the excursion.
