The Sunday they were here, we were privileged to visit First Reformed Church in Bulacan. This was their anniversary Sunday.
Preaching on "Contending for the Faith"
The Hankos with the youngest member of the church

With the consistory
Monday was a public holiday here and the Smits invited the Bereans to spend the day at their house. Hankos were able to visit for a while as well and renew acquaintances with the Bereans once again.
We were able to go away for a day to the Taal Volcano south of Manila. The volcano (still active) is in the middle of a lake, and also has a lake inside it. Unique! Although we could not see the inside lake, it is possible to take a boat ride across to the volcano, hike up and get a good view of it. However those activities weren't on our agenda for the day and we simply enjoyed the view from the adjacent ridge.
One of us at least spoiling the view! :-)
Notice all the fish farms.
