MNL/Conference

Well, here we are...tomorrow is the last day of February...and we haven't blogged since December.  haha.  No excuses...  We'll just try to catch you all up on the last month & a half.  It hasn't been dull...The last week of December, we were....
Leaving on a jet plane! Heading off to the big city for annual missions conference. It was a bit sunny. That's why the guy in the background is carrying an umbrella.
One of the best things about the big city: Krispy Kreme! Even better? One of the ladies who works there is from our island and speaks the language we are studying, so she was pretty excited to talk to someone in her native dialect! (She gave us balloons and hats and free donuts for everyone :)
Four kids at the Guest House. One bed. They didn't look quite this happy for long. But actually, they did surprisingly well.
Banquet night at conference... 
And, Fun Night! Asia had a great time getting into her group's song routine.
And, if you haven't guessed, their class theme was: "superheroes." This was the perfect theme for our kids, and they repeated to us many times what they learned: "Superheroes never give up!" and, "Superheroes always tell the truth." The group that came from the US to teach the kids did an awesome job! 
And, no trip to Manila would be complete without having Pho at our favorite noodle place. All four kids loved it and did surprisingly well with their chopsticks.
Well, that was a busy 10 days. We had our Starbucks, and it's time to go home now.
