My Little Trip in Guam

For only $225 for 3 nights, this is the room I got, a beach front view room. Hotel Santa Fe is not a big hotel but it perfectly suited my needs. I actually got this room for almost 50% off. I also rented a car for 1 day ($30) and drove around the island.

I don't remember the name of this place but it's sure is pretty.

My mother was happy to finally see the place where my granddaddy spent a couple years when he was in military. That was a long long time ago.

Family Farm

Short visit to the family farm a Durian fruit farm

 Joel's checking out the durian. He doesn't like eating durian not because of the stinky smell but because of the taste. Weird because most people here likes the taste but not the smell. Check out how stinky the durian is DURIAN.

 look how low the fruits are

The kids of hired help in the farm

Farm house/house of another hired help. Sometimes my mom spend a few days there because she's tired of going up and down the mountain just to go home and be back the next day.
Simple and peaceful living. Plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. My mom likes it there.

Road to the farm. My Aunt Warlyn was trying to find a way to get to the other side of the stream and not to get wet.

Bacngeb Alliance Church

Truly, there's a reason to celebrate!
I'm glad to had the opportunity to attend the Thanksgiving Celebration, Child dedication and Christmas party of this church. I was amazed on how the congregation come together and gave the best they can or they have even if it means there's nothing left for tomorrow. Faith, Love and Joy!
When my dad passed away, my mom decided to give a little portion of the property for church building. She knew that my dad was planning about it before he left. The church isn't finish yet but they already have almost 100 members and most of them are children. Almost all the members are T'boli (one of the indigenous group of people in the Philippines) I couldn't understand them when they start talking.

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Matthew 6:33-34
