Weekend Getaway to Baguio City, northern Philippines.
We were invited to join another couple for a weekend away in Baguio City, about a 4 hour drive north of Manila. We thoroughly enjoyed the coolness of the mountains, and being able to just relax for a few days.
Jerry works two days a week at Cuatro Christian School run by Kids International Ministries (KIM), which is located in one of the local squatter villages. He has caught a few pictures of life in and around the school.
On our way back to Manila after the 3 weeks in the States, we stopped to visit a friend of the family. Over a period of 2 days we visited the Botanical Gardens, the Beach, and the Polynesian Cultural Center. So relaxing, and so enjoyable to spend time with them.
The new SM Field has been completed! The entire school met for an early morning dedication. This field is regulation size for both Soccer and Rugby and has been a little more than a year in the making. 120+ tons of dirt were hauled in for this field, in order to make it level. What a blessing of the Lord for provision of funds to build this much-needed field.
After one of our updates, we had multiple people concerned that we were too busy and not taking enough time to relax. We took your advice, and accepted an invitation to snorkel on Valentines Day at a resort about 3 hour drive away from the school. Some of these pictures are from that day. It was beautiful weather, even including a tropical rain storm on the way home.
