The next day we left for brother Richard's family's place on the island of Negros. It was a short boat ride - only 40 minutes, but about an hour drive afterward. His place is very nice! It's right on the ocean, with a few mangroves growing along the coast. We just relaxed that afternoon, since the extension class does not start until the next afternoon. We rode up into the mountains to pick up the bretheren on a vehicle called a jeepney - a jeep with a longer bed with two benches running from front to back. It was rather crowded with 14 filipinos, 3 americans, and 200 lbs of rice! The classes went well - Ken taught one, and brother Santiago taught one in the morning in the Cebuano language. Brad, Clint, and I led a singing class wiht the young people - they really love to sing!
Today, July 7, we returned to Cebu to prepare for administering the the nursing certification test on Wednesday - missionaries are used because they are honest! On thursday, we're going to Naval to do some follow-up studies from an earlier campaign. Here are some pictures from the trip so far.
