My name is Jonathan and I am a missionary from New England in America. A crew of 40 of us are going to the Pacific to spread Christianity. We've heard about stories from Captain Cook about islands with people who don't know anything about God and Jesus.
After nearly two months of sailing we finally reached an island. We are all happy to finally get off this ship. We have been running out of food and there isn't much to do other than read our books.
The islanders welcomed us to Tahiti. Some of them could speak basic English because they had met explorers before us. They prepared a big feast and seemed very nice.
