7th Typhoon December 9, 2014

This is the typhoon we were all worried about. We evecuated many missionaries, but by the time the typhoon got to us, there was only a light rain and light wind. This picture was taken before thr typhoon hit us. The winds before,the typhoon were worse than when it got to the mission complex.
Elder Smith was evacuated to the Elders apartment next to our apartment. 
Elder Smith's companion and trainee, Elder Thompson. He wasw disappointed that the typhoon wasn't bigger. He'll get his chance to see a few typhoons.

We went to pick up the Mabayo Elders for the typhoon evacuation. The Zone Leaders were there on an exchange.
We took the Zone Leaders back to their apartment and Elder Thompson and Elder Smith went to the mission complex with the Office Elders.

Philippines Christmas

Many homes businesses, and government angencies have lights depicting Christ's birth. A Filipino Missionary Sister said, "That's because we're a Christian Nation."
What  are we in the U.S.? Aren't we a Christian nation? You wouldn't see this on a government building.

This is Meats Plus where we go to eat sometimes. I liked their decorations. The next 2 pictures are Meats Plus.
