Week Sixty-two

             Beautiful scenery in Baguio across from the hotel on Camp John Hay where we stayed.
                        Urdaneta mission senior couples and Pres. and Sister Monahan at table one.
 Baguio Mission Senior Couple--the Fullmers and us, and President and Sister Balledos and part of their family.  Their two oldest children are serving missions in Utah.  Their daughter is serving on Temple Square, and their son is in Tooele.  Quite different from the Philippines!
 There were several Christmas displays outside the hotel in Baguio.  These are some of the hotel sights.

 Sister Fullmer enjoying the market in Baguio.  It's always quite an experience to go to the market.  Notice the chicken section in the next picture.  So fun!

 There were four of us in the back seat of this taxi.  Sister Fullmer is behind me.  We were very crowded, but happy!
                   Brad and I getting our picture in one of the Christmas displays outside the hotel.
 When we got home, we had a "heart attack" and had messages of love from someone.  I suspect it was Sister Missionaries, but we'll probably never know.  It was fun to come home to this, though.
 The beginning of the Couples Party in Agoo District.  They had a wonderful dance and meal for the adults.  The Filipinos love to party!!!  I must be part Filipino!!!
 This couple were married last week in the Manila Temple.  She is a RM (returned missionary), and he a member.  She had given up on marriage, but then they were introduced to each other, and 9 months later they were married.  It's hard for Sisters here to find men who can take them to the temple.  We are so glad for this couple to have found love.

This is President and Sister Ramos and the Branch President from Demortis.  Pres. Ramos is a counselor in the Mission Presidency. He served his mission as a young man in Oakland, CA. Sister Ramos saw him in a dream before she actually met him, and knew he was the man she should marry.  He also knew she was the one from the first time he met her.  Cool!!!  Anyway, we enjoyed visiting with them.
This was our week in pictures.  Sorry, Moms.  I'll do better next week with pictures of your missionaries.  Have a safe and Happy New Year!!!
