The Sulu Sea
The sugar cane fields. The plants can get 10-12 feet tall.
They harvest twice a year by hand by cutting the plants at the base with a large knife (bolo).
We arrived in Inayauan around noon in time for lunch. The Rosals fed us a delicious lunch of tuna (fresh from the sea) prepared several different ways; grilled, raw in a salad, fried, and in a type of casserole.

After lunch they took us to their beach side property where we would be staying for the night. We had a relaxing afternoon - visiting, napping, and wading in the ocean. It was extremely hot and humid.
Peeling an Indian Mango.
They are crunchy, but have a good taste. Sometimes they eat them with salt.

Trying coconut juice
Our Sunday started at dawn. It was still very humid and hot. We kept hoping for rain, but it didn't come while we were there. Our gracious hosts again fed us breakfast and brought us to church - The Reformed Free Church of Inayauan.
Preparing for preaching
Visiting before church
Rev. Kleyn led the adult Sunday school class.
Since it was Pentecost Sunday he spoke on Acts 2.
Then he preached on I Thessalonians 5:18 "In Everything Give Thanks."
After lunch our driver took us back to Bacolod where we stayed for the night. Our plane left the next morning to take us back home. We very much enjoyed the hospitality of the Rosals and meeting God's people there.
