According to the translator, Mauban means gray-headed. Nothing gray about our God directed mission/adventure in Mauban, Quezon, it was as colorful as the rainbow.
Southern Luzon – we started in Tagaytay, look at all the towns we passed through.
“How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation…”
2nd Pit stop when we entered Quezon through Tiaong. Golden arches everywhere…Nenita & Madel ham it up.
Tight squeeze…Emmanuel a.ka. M2 (in the middle) asks “Are we there yet?”
Yes we are! Welcome to Mauban!!!
First stop in Mauban!
For 2 nights, we stayed at that house to the left.
The streets were narrow…
Our hosts, Madel, Izen, & Maricris with the two little ones, Emmanuel & Sophia.
“Passing alongside the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and Andrew the brother of Simon casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen.”
Not exactly Galilee, but one of the divine appointment the Lord had prepared was a family whose make up and livelihood was similar to that of Simon (Peter) & Andrew.
Storefront facing the street, the otherside is Lamon Bay.
Household # 1 who received the truth of the Gospel in Jesus Christ.
Because of the Lord and your prayers…”And how are they to preach unless they are sent…”
The Gospel shared along the seawall/boardwalk of Mauban.
Stretch of coastline
Have you heard?
In moments like these…
As we walked along the boardwalk, these folks welcomed us into their home to hear of the love of God.
Off to Rosario…
Dariel navigated us safely onto shore.
Nenita by the lake, waiting for high-tide.
Ed, Madel’s father welcomed us wholeheartedly.
A farmers helper, the carabao.
Typical home. Electricity for the area does not kick in till 6 PM, shuts down at 10 PM.
Household # 2 – Marina, Ed, & Nenita discuss dinner…which is anytime after lunch 🙂
Alakan from the “sa-sa” plant, a source of income.
after harvesting the rice grain, drying time…
Edmar & Brian drying the “palay.”
High tide came, JR was the lone rower, the advantage of youth.
“I appeal to you, brothers, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to strive together with me in your prayers to God on my behalf…”
