It's More Fun in the Philippines!! 5 months and Counting!
You've probably heard the expression 'time flies when you're having fun'? Here in the Philippines the tourism industry uses the slogan 'It's more fun in the Philippines'. I guess these two things explains why we are shocked at the fact that we are reaching the 5 month mark since arrive in Manila.
We are so thankful for the prayers and support that we have received from so many churches, women's mission groups, and individuals. We have felt your prayers and can tell you that they have made a huge difference in our ability to adjust and settle into our new 'normal'. When we first arrived in Manila we really thought 'normal' was a feeling that we had left behind in Canada but, we can tell you now that, there are times when things feel 'normal'. It's a new normal but one that we grow more comfortable with each and every day.
As you know, Christmas is just a few weeks away and there is no hiding the fact that it will be very different for us this year. We are looking forward to making new memories and traditions as a family, but we sure are missing our family and friends back in Canada.
We are thankful for new friends and our colleagues who are helping us make this Christmas a meaningful one, and one that we will never forget. Thank you for remembering us in your prayers during the Christmas season!
