Here is a photo of a huge sensation in the Philippines. This is a group of returned missionaries who performed together and put their videos on Youtube. They tell their story about how they became famous and you see how much they love the culture and the people. You'll even see them doing a little dance with Filipino President Duterte. They call themselves the "Hey Joes"which is what male caucasians are called when greeted on the streets. VIDEO
We often see things in the grocery stores that catch our attention. We don't think these seeds are sold anywhere in the U.S.
We found this free sample rather unusual. No one was there to count how many samples you drank or if you were under age.
We weren't shopping for these nor do we need them, but we think they are aptly named.
This is a good name for a chocolate bar. Being chubby here is a sign of prosperity. It is bad manners to tell someone they are skinny.
It was our privilege this week to host many of the missionaries on the island at our apartment so they could call home on Mother's Day. We gave them a space, a big screen and let them have privacy. We heard a lot of love and joy as each greeted their family. We have a choice group of elders and sisters that we love and admire very much. Click on this VIDEO to listen to a sweet, heartfelt hymn that one companionship sang.
Look at all these beautiful books!
We were happy to be able to add a school to distribute books to. We are spreading the joy sent by Amy, her family and their school.
Sister Joan Sikat belongs to our branch. We recently found out that she taught school so we brought some books to her school.
The teachers at the Parang Elementary school were so excited with what we brought. They have started a project to make a small library and reading station.
The teachers and parents at Lazareto Elementary are hard at work cleaning, painting and organizing for the school year which begins in about two weeks.
We feel so privileged to be able to contribute books to the schools. They will be well used and appreciated. Many thanks to all who made it possible. Our next project is school supplies.
