Coming from Hong Kong where every surface imaginable is plastered with advertisments, it has been so refreshing to read the slogans paintited on the back of the motortaxis here. Here are a few that I shot as they sputtered past me today.
And just for fun, a pig in a motortaxi
Apart from the motortaxis ministering to me, I have been so inspired by the devotion of the Filipionos here. They really know what it means to seek the Lord first and find their enjoyment in Him. The children and staff rise at 5:00 am for devotions before doing their chores. Every evening after dinner they also have time of devotions as a home. Other functions we have atteneded also reflect this passion for worship and God's word. There are devotions (I'm not talking 5 minutes, but 45 minutes) before staff meetings, teacher's training, church services, potlucks and even birthday parties. Wednesday night we attended Pastor Tati Bone's 55th birthday party. Before eating, we worshiped and his friend gave an hour long sermon! Josiah said "mommy is Jesus in the Pill-a-peens?" That would be a resounding yes.
