Week 2

So, we were on the island of Bohol and we were starting the second Pastors Conference. On Monday and Tuesday, there were only evening services so we took off to see the sights on Monday. We stopped by the Blood Compact monument where the Spanish made a pact with the locals only to end up enslaving them. We then stopped at the second oldest church in the Philippines which was built by the natives after they were enslaved. (Yes, it is a Catholic church). It was then off to the Loboc River Cruise for lunch as we toured the river. We then headed for the Chocolate Hills to see this natural phenomenon that only occurred on this island in the world. Then the highlight of the day. An almost 1/3 mile zipline over a 600 foot deep river gorge. And then back on another zipline. All at the low Filipino price of $7.00.
We then rushed back to Tagbileran City and arrived just in time for the evening service. I preached first on the AV and then Pastor Carter preached on the local church. A late dinner of grilled chicken and mango shakes was most welcome. We were shattered by the time we went to bed.
