Oct . 24
The birthday party was quite a celebration. The company was great and so was the food and even tho it wasn't my party, we had a lot of fun.
The next day it was very nice just to get up and drive to the Stake Center about 15 minutes. We had English Class that night and them home to Naga.
to direct the traffic. Below is the chapel in Libmanan. The parking lots are never full.
I made an apple cake today. It is good also but more practice is needed.
We were soaked to the skin. Back to the hotel for a shower, breakfast and a nap before heading to Ligao.
Here is a photo of the Ligao District Employment Committee.
It is now time for the October Career Workshop for the missionaries that are ready to return to their homes.It is so great to work with these young men and women who have spent the last 18 months to two years serving the Lord. They are all great resource to the wards and branches that they will be returning to in just a day.
Saturday was a Stake Relief Society activity. They had a couple of speakers on the importance of being self reliant.Then they opened it up for Market to Market. Each ward and branch had a table where they brought items to sell. It was amazing to see all the items that were available to buy. It is not a fund raiser. You buy from the individual that brought the items. So many people have a small self employment business and they were all there selling. We bought some homemade peanut butter, cookies, and cake. After about and hour the power went off and so we went home. Too many people in a small area with no air con. The rest of the day was going to be a class demonstrating how to make and decorate cakes. They had to bring in small ovens because none of the church kitchens have ovens. We had been sick all week so it really was time to go home.
