We walked this morning along the beach out of Hamtic. I had to drop videos off at the Elder's apartment from the wifi shop in San Jose. The shop folks were not able to get the complete download done last evening. We had a nice walk. It was a little tough on the knees walking on the slanting sand, but it was a good workout, in an beautiful place.
After Sister Sessions and I got home last evening from Tibiao/Culasi/Pandan, I went to Barangay Funda to find the Elders from Hamtic and go get videos made at the Wifi Cafe in San Jose. I met them at the waiting stand along the highway where I talked to these two guys carrying their roosters. Pictured here are the "winners". A dead cock lay on the table beside the shed. I pointed to him and said, "Looser?" They laughed and said yes. Through much struggle, I asked them how much they won with winners and the told me a thousand pesos. I couldn't get it across to ask how much for the loser. Maybe they only get to eat him.
|Good missionaries here. Elder Tracy has been here only about 10 days. Elder Tolentino is a great trainer for him. We are going to see James this afternoon with them. We are pleased that they invite us to come along.|
|Sister Sessions examining the sand. I don't think she enjoyed this walk as much as I did.|
|It was family bath time. Many families were at the beach washing themselves and their children. These families live up in neepa huts in the coconuts. The grinned and waved to us.|
