Here you see the labors of a "master" gardener with just the size yard he likes. Elder Bellessa trims the greenery in front of our apartment with the best tool available (a knife) and picks up garbage left by people as they walk by.
Elder Bellessa's basketball buddies. Whenever we visit a branch, Elder Bellessa tries his hand at hitting a basket or two. When that happens, there are cheers and gleeful laughter all around.
This is a very small house at the edge of a rice paddy right off the highway. A family of six lives in this 8x10 house. It is amazing how the mother cooks on the porch with the children playing happily around her.
We pass this rice field and large sign as we drive out of Pinamalayan.
We see reminders for good character on public buildings even when we are waiting in line to pay our utility bills.
Honoring our new convert, this chalkboard art greeted us at a recent baptism.
