Keepsakes from my Mission in Mindanao

These are few of my many pictures taken when I served for LDS church as Missionary in Mindanao. I was assigned to labor in Mati, Davao Oriental for six months, another six months in Kidapawan, South Cotabato, and six more months in General Santos City.

With me was Marylene Roman (now Vicente) from Batangas. She was the second greenie I trained after Sister Rabe, from Bicol. Isn't she pretty?

Here we were walking on a bamboo bridge on the way to visit an investigator. It was pretty scary bridge, yikes!

This one was taken after our zone conference held in General Santos City. I was the one on the right, front row. Serving a full time mission for church is one of the best decisions I have ever made! It was a 19 months service full of memorable experiences.

These pictures are blurred; just grabbed it from friendster account of Marylene. And those who are wondering why I can speak a little Cebuano language, and that is because I was there for 19 months :-).
