The classis of the PRCP delegated Rev. Flores and Bro. Eric Mescallado, with Rev. Kleyn as advisor, to make an investigatory trip to the Protestant Reformed Fellowship in the town of Albuera on the island of Leyte. Matt and Sarah Kortus are here this summer for a mini internship in missions, and Matt was able to travel with the men and thus to meet the people as well as to experience first hand the culture and work in the PRFA. (By the way, Matt is soon to start his 3rd year of seminary.)
To get to Albuera and home again, the delegation had to use many modes of transportation.
Bus Ride from Airport Terminal to the Plane
Trike Ride from Tacloban Airport to the Van Depot
Jeepney Ride from Ormoc to Albuera
Bike ride from ??? to ???
Don't forget that legs are a mode of transportation too!
Van ride from Tacloban to Ormoc
Another Trike Ride
Plane Ride from Manila to Tacloban and back
They, especially Matt, got to enjoy the food of the province for the first time.
Supper at Bro. Felix and Sis. Norma's house
Buko (young coconut)
Supper in the Dark
(On Thursday before they left Manila, there was an earthquake in the area. The earthquake caused a landslide, which knocked out the power supply to much of the Island. So the weekend was spent without electricity - no fans or lights. I think power may be restored there soon.)
Another Meal Time - Breakfast before heading home
They also experienced a very special Filipino food, but that deserves a blog all by itself.
Until next time...!
