Another Week in the Philippines
We are fortunate to be able to spend our time here in the Philippines and to be serving the Lord and helping to build his Church in the city of San Ildefonso in the Bulacan Province. The picture below is a daytime picture. It is hard to see, but the colors in the sky above this dark cloud were beautiful.
I could see every color of the rainbow vividly. It is very hard to see in the picture, but there were blues, greens, reds, yellows, oranges, and purples.
The young elders and sisters have so much enthusiasm and are such hard workers. They are bringing the gospel of Christ to as many people as will listen.
This is Sister Daquioag. She is waiting for her VISA and then will be flying to America. She has been called to serve a mission to Mesa, Arizona. Who knows, maybe she will run across my Dad when she gets down there. Her English is really good.
We found this strange little frog in our driveway one afternoon after a big thunderstorm. He is quite different from the other type of frogs we see all the time. We have been having lots of rain and thunderstorms lately and are in the middle of the rainy season.
We went with the Branch to see Jared off on his mission. He is the Branch President's son and is going to the Cauayan Mission on Luzon Island in the Philippines (that is the same island we are on only further north).
We also went with Sister Romulo to get her temple endowments. This is a picture in the waiting area with some of the other sisters in the Branch. She is third from the right with her grand-daughter Rene Rose seated next to her.
Saw this little leaf on top of the air conditioner unit outside out house.
On closer inspection discovered it was a strange little insect.
