Our last full day here in the Philippines was packed with memorable moments and joyful fellowship. We have truly enjoyed getting to know Pastor Callejas and his family. Tonight they treated us to some delicious pizza after the evening service!
Our children really enjoyed getting to know everyone. Micah liked talking about spiders, reptiles, snakes and a whole host of other critters with Pastor Callejas’ three sons. He was especially fascinated to hear about T.J.’s tarantula collection.
Earlier this morning, as well as tonight, I had the privilege of speaking at First Sunshine Baptist Church, Pastor Callejas’ congregation. This wonderful group of believers are committed to faithfully serving the Lord.
Our kids had the opportunity to join in the Sunday School at First Sunshine and were the center of attention!
Of course, all of this transpired today (Sunday), but we also had a very memorable final night at Haven of Grace with the local children on Saturday. Since the local children knew Saturday was our final full day staying at the camp, they were at our door at 7:30am. They stayed throughout the day and asked if we might have a campfire on the beach that night. It was a lot of fun, and certainly a night we will not soon forget.
In the picture below, Micah is holding a small fish he caught in one of the pools of water on the beach side of the breakers.
Here Vincent is proudly displaying a crab he caught on the beach.
This has certainly been a memorable 24 hours to cap off a memorable trip! We will appreciate your prayers for us as we leave early tomorrow for the States.
