1: After a 2 hour plane ride, a 13 hour plane ride, and a 5 hour plane ride we landed in Manila. We then had a 13 hour bus ride to the Java Hotel in Laoag City on the north coast of the Philippines.
2: One day there was a typhoon! | The kids treated us like royalty since many of them had never seen Americans before
3: Each morning we woke up at 4:30am, ate breakfast, and left the hotel at 5:30am in teams of 5-7 Americans with 2 Filipino pastors. We arrived at elementary or high schools by 7:00am and then traveled around preaching the Gospel at 5-10 schools each day, depending on how far apart the schools were until 4:00pm when we returned to the hotel to shower, eat dinner, and get to sleep. We met the principal at each school we visited and often had to wait in their office while they assembled the kids. ---->
