Hello Again

Yesterday Adriana and Thomas returned with several from our group to the Baguio City Jail. Adriana was looking forward to seeing a lady she had befriended in a previous visit. She was so excited when Marianne walked in. They sat and talked through the whole service. Adriana is such an encouragement to her but Adriana struggled with wanting to do more for her but not being able to.

We were treated to Pizza Hut and Pepsi for supper. Such comfort food for us Americans (and Canadians too.) Our girls are looking forward to eating macaroni and cheese when we return to the States. Cheese, and milk for that matter, is scarce in this part of the world.

This morning Thomas was sick in bed again. There seems to be a cycle of fever, nausea and diarrhea that continues to plague him. While he rested, the rest of us returned to Grandma Perry's Children's Home. It was fun to be able to play with the children at this small orphanage again. Little Sandra spent almost the whole time in my arms. She even fell asleep on my lap.

We were hoping to include pictures from the orphanage, but didn't have time to compress them first. Now we need to run to catch our ride to dinner and they haven't uploaded yet. Perhaps tomorrow.
