Some pictures

Just like what we are doing in Manila, we also did most of the things that we used to do there, we printed t-shirts that will serve as the kids uniform in the school. This way, they will really feel that they are going to school indeed and hopefully this will give them more enthusiasm in studying.

The picture below was taken at the village entrance. Carmel & Andrew just arrived the day before and this was supposed to be their first day in school but it was cancelled. I'm wearing a long sleeve top because it's really hot here. Temperature I think is 32 to 34 degrees everyday. And to think we are already in the highlands. Anyone wants to buy us an SPF 30 lotion there or an anti wrinkle cream? we need a lot of those here.

The above picture was when my dear husband led the worship in the local church here. We sang an all English songs and it was great!!!

Wherever we are, God can use your talents if you just let HIM.

Another village

Yesterday we went to another village. From our home based, we have to take the bus ( a 2 hour no traffic drive) and then we took another ride ( 5 to 10 minutes on a speeding speedboat without life jackets and with the scorching heat of the sun. Praise God we still don't need any natural acne pills despite our everyday exposure with the sun). It was not an easy travel but it's worth it.

We visited a family, the man of the house is called Katua (If I am not mistaken it means the chief of the village). We tutored his 11 year old girl who is such a darling. She's so nice to us and she's so welcoming, in fact she didn't even want us to go. We stayed there for one night and we hope to go back some other time.

It is still part of the ministry, establishing relationship with the cousins, showing then the love of the Lord in terms of teaching and reaching out to them.

I really am humbled by the heart of our missionary team leader here. He does a lot for the Lord and it's a shame for us who just sit and relax inside our beautiful churches every Sunday. You will really be challenged when you get to work with him.

Not that I mean anything bad about staying in the church but I believe you can do something to be able to help in bringing the gospel to the unreached people.

You just have to ask God how.
