Back Again

This marks the third summer in a row that Jimmy and Beth Capone have come on a short term missions trip to the Philippines. Last year they brought their girls Natalie and Julianna, and two from their church, Chris and Lauren. The whole brood came again this summer, along with another team member, Sara.

They hit the ground running, after landing in Iloilo Sunday morning, we left for the mountains to hold a mini-camp in Alibunan. We played games, did crafts, and loved on about a hundred kids. Then we swam in the river located in a valley between two mountains. We roasted hot dogs for dinner and had s’mores for dessert.

Then we all tried to get some sleep. Up in the mountains life is pretty simple, they just got electricity a few years ago. We slept in a small, bamboo hut. Unfortunately we all woke up when the first roosters started crowing around 4:00 AM. Also since we were in the mountains it was actually somewhat cold. We went back into Iloilo City early Monday morning.

We have a full week of ministry planned. Thanks to Jimmy and Beth and their team for coming back to the other side of the world.
