Our New Life in Cebu

Categories: Updates, Tags:

Things have been busy as we settle into this beautiful country.  Our time here has almost added up to one month and we’re still adjusting to the new culture and climate.  Right now we’re in the middle of the Philippine summer and temperatures can easily rise to almost a hundred degrees with humidity.  Back home this would be enough to keep most people in their homes but here it is a daily part of life that the people have learned to live with.  Abigail is adjusting well and loves her new surroundings.  Her blue eyes and light colored hair have made her a tiny celebrity. She has been a great conversation starter with different people as we travel on public transportation.  I think she would make a great soul winning partner!  Easter came and with it, Holy week, one of the biggest holidays in the Philippines.  It’s a time when people take vacation and celebrate…and almost nothing can be done throughout the week.  I was reminded of this when I went to get our P.O. Box address and the only lady who could give me the address had taken a vacation to China and wouldn’t be back for days.  Yes, we’re still acclimating to the new pace of our new home.  Praise the Lord we’re finally here!  There are some frustrations but what a blessing to finally be in Cebu.

    Glad to hear how things are going for you bro Chris. My wife and I just got home from a “date” night, I was thinking about you, Elizabeth, and Abigail! Pastor Constantino gave me an opportunity to preach on a Sunday night a few weeks ago(it was actually the last Sunday you spent in the states, I was thinking lot about you) I preached on Unity in the Church. I know you mentioned frustrations, praying for those!

    love ya man,

    Bro Rich Braymiller
