This weekend we took little boats to an island where we hiked a volcano. Although it was extremely hot (from the sun and the lava flowing under the ground) we agree that the view and the ability to say “we hiked a volcano” was well worth the copious amount of sweat! We have experienced Filipino culture by riding on tricycles (think motorcycle with side car), buying mangos from a street market, and attending a dinner and show with traditional Filipino food and bamboo dancing (tinikling.)
We continue to be surrounded by Filipino hospitality, new sights and tastes, and the complexities of Filipino weather. It is much wetter here and we have gotten to witness several thunder and lightning storms. It has been a great week and we have had some great conversations about poverty, hope, and our role as believers.
