National Family Week

The Philippines has a national family week. We didn't see anything to celebrate it except what our church did but maybe other churches did things too. We started with a parade at 7 AM. 

The parade just consisted of a few vehicles and tricycles with balloons and posters and people. We didn't have many spectators either. 

Then they had a poster making contest. These guys take this seriously. Beautiful artwork

The church was all decorated for an open house

Then there were skits from each branch. I love how they all participate. It was a full day.

While in Angeles last week we decided to scope out the S&R store. It is a branch of Cosco and had many of the same things. It was customer appreciation days and was crazy but when we saw real milk and fresh Florida orange juice we decided it was worth fighting the crowds.

We had FHE with this sweet family last week at their home. The mother( in the white shirt) was baptized yesterday. We hope her family will soon follow.
