Since Rev. Smit was on furlough to North America in June and July, he was not able to accompany Rev. Kleyn to the SNO classes. I went along with my husband instead and enjoyed the beautiful scenery of the island, as well as meeting the men in the classes there.
We flew into Bacolod City and then had a four hour drive south along the coast to where the men meet for classes.

It seems in Southern Negros they load up the tricycles even more than in Manila with all sorts of things.

Kids, how would like to ride to school this way?! Looks like fun. :-)
Hog tied. Or should we say cow tied?
As we drove along the route, we saw many churches of the various pastors who attend the SNO classes.
The church in Inayauan where Pastor Ezequias Rosal is pastor
The church in Sialay where Pastor Eduardo Donasco is pastor
The church in Canturay where Pastor Ariel Labrador is pastor
The church in Hinobaan where Pastor Jonathon Barroca is pastor
