Elders Lang Siu, Anderson, and Lenoy
Some of the Elder's in the Morong Zone- Elder Argyle, from Orem has his arms outstretched. He and Elder Lenoy are the Zone Leaders.
Elder Argyle ride on the back of a trike. They are young and crazy!
Water Falls at Sampaloc
As we climbed back up to the car we saw what we thought was an abandoned home.A nice cinder block structure with a sheet dividing the space.
In the our-shed was a cement slab with wood chips on it for a cooking surface.
A couple of steps took you up to the bedroom, where we saw a large bag of rice, a few books, and a 6" stack of clothing, old magazines but no mat to sleep on. It was just a cement slab. As we were leaving a young woman came up to us. This was her home! We begged her forgiveness and wished her well.
I want to remember this woman and try to help her in some way. Such humble circumstances, wow!
Rice drying on tarps along side of road. Sometimes without the tarps. Getting ready to go to the mill.
You know you're in Teresa when you see a lot of the trees and poles painted white and aqua.
Local Farmer's Market....unbelievable! It smells like it looks. :)
MY FAVORITE....Anyone for Head Cheese?
This cute little boy came begging when we were with the Elders going to Sampaloc. One of the Elders had just bought and ice cream and was eating it. He looked down and handed the rest to him!
Could he be happier? You have to be careful because you want to help all of them and it's a bottom-less pit. We are looking for ways to help them help themselves by teaching correct principles of self-reliance. But still I know I will try to do what I can, when I can and whenever I can! How can your resist these sweet children? I should become the "CANDY" lady but I may go broke.
It was quite a trek to get there. I had cockle-burrs stuck all over my skirt and when it rains they say you are muddy from foot to knee!
The women here are really very modest. We have yet to see anything very skimpy, low cut or inappropriate etc. They seem to know who they are as daughter's of God.
