Albuera is by the Ormoc Bay, part of the ocean waters between the islands of Leyte and Cebu. The bay was just a short walk from where the men stayed.
Children from the fellowship
Albuera is surrounded by rice paddies.
The next few pictures are of the surrounding countryside.
Walking among the rice paddies to visit some of the church members
The rice paddies are initially seeded by someone scattering the seed by hand.
When the plants are big enough, they are pulled.....
.....and replanted farther apart in rows, again by hand.
A carabao comes in handy for plowing the paddies.
They also use rototillers to work the ground in the paddies.
The paddies also provide a quiet place to read.
Trying to copy the local skill of climbing coconut trees.
Notches are cut into the trunk at convenient intervals to make climbing easier.
