It has been a wonderful week of sharing our mission with some of our loved ones.
Sister Tanner picked us up and we did grocery shopping and made food for everyone etc. About 4 in the afternoon we get a call from our loved ones saying they missed their flight out of Hong Kong by 10 minutes. So the airlines put them up and the next flight out was 8 a.m. the next morning. We were very sad. So they actually didn't get to Cebu until Tuesday afternoon about 1:00. We were so happy to finally be together and we had a great week.
We had dinner with the AP's and enjoyed the evening at the Mission Home. We had a project of marking some copies of the Book of Mormon.
The next day Sister Tanner took us to the temple. So happy we could be there together. Afterwards we ate at he cafeteria - Filipino food - not my favorite but Aaron wanted to try it all.
Having lunch on the Loboc River Cruise. They sang and we ate as we cruised down the river.
The hanging bridge. Kimmie was pretty brave to tackle this. Especially as Aaron was walking HEAVILY in front of her.
A very nice restaurant in Dauis that Norm and I discovered. Reminds us a lot of Maddox.
We were able to attend another baptism in the river.
Erik Jorillo Ignario was baptized by Roberto Jorillo - Jake probably knows them.
They go to so much work to bring food. They have no money and no transportation but it all seems to work out. We brought a truck load again, like about 15 stacked in the back.
This little guy by Aaron is the young boy that was baptized. Aaron immediately won him over. He had quite the supply of candy that made the little ones happy.
President and Sister Saballa took us all for a tricycle ride. He said the tricycle could hold 8 people. He did add they were Filipinos. It was really lugged down with the 5 of us.
Very special Filipino people in this photo. President and Sister Saballa on the right. Then Sister Dig, her husband is the branch president, Britzel and Nino Laurel - I taught Nino piano. They are brother and sister and go to college in Cebu. We were lucky to see them. Don't know the other sisters names.
Same group in front of the Loon church.
Went to church in Panglao. I am teaching piano to Annie. She is a very strong church member. Her husband is white and not a member.
This is Betty's lovely bed. She claimed it was comfortable. A fun memory for me.
