The Kids from Our Route

After a little competition, the church took the children who had been faithful during the month of September to Family Park.  The park was a special treat for the kids where they could see monkeys, rabbits, birds, and goats.  It was also an experience for us Americans who are used to seeing these animals separated and in their own exhibits.  At one point a monkey was given a banana and immediately a group of ducks swarmed under his cage, trying to snatch a bite.  Frustrated, the monkey started smacking the ducks in the head!  I had never seen anything like that in a petting zoo before!  Just another moment that said, “Welcome to the Philippines.” It was a great day where we got to show the kids that Christians can have good wholesome fun in this increasingly sinful world.
