This is Jerome from Tagbilaran who is in charge of the housing project. We were pleased to see a home with a roof on. The project is taking a lot longer than we were told it would take. It takes us an hour to drive to Tagbilaran and then another hour to drive to the Mandacita - with the return trip it is over 4 hours on the road. When we get to the site we just sit in the car and wait for him at least 2-3 hours. Makes for a lot of sitting. Too hot to get out! Part of the road is so bumpy you just rock from side to side. Sometimes I think my body will be bruised.
We were parked in front of this lady's home and she invited us in. Then she insisted on treating us. We are very reluctant to do that but you can see the rolls and pop. She has never married and is over 72 years old. Her niece is standing by Norm. The nicest people.
I asked if I could use her CR having no clue what I was asking. She opened a door and there it was. No seat, no paper, no walls on the one side and something else hanging on the other side. I felt a bit uncomfortable about the whole thing but it was necessary. No choice - better than bushes.
None of the people receiving the homes are LDS. They are all very nice people. There are 27 homes being built.
We really enjoyed being with Elder Perez.
Hope your week was as good as ours!! Love you all so much!!!!
