Philippines: Looking Back

Today was the day the youth presented their experiences from the mission trips to the “stockholders” that invested in the trips. Without support, most of us couldn’t have gone. There were some good stories told by the kids, and a couple of great videos of our time there (I’m trying to get copies for you) and really it was a nice way to spend the morning. I know I’ve posted photos elsewhere, but my job for this morning was the photo travel log so I’ve been looking back through the photos and wanted to put some here.

This is our group with some of our hosts at the Underground River, which is a candidate to be one of the new 7 Natural Wonders. This was where I saw my first wild monkey, as well as about 6 species of bats and some monitor lizards.

This was the Saturday program at Life Church for the kids sponsored through Compassion International. They come out for exercise, games, Bible study and two meals every Saturday.

This is the whole group at the Compassion project in Manila, which was the second (and shorter) stop on our trip.

I don’t have anything in particular to say that I haven’t already, but this is where my mind’s been today so I decided to share. It’s weird and a little sad to think that we’ll have probably transferred before they go back to the Philippines, which means I may never get to go back and see those people and places again.
