We have much to be thankful for this week at Casa Bayanihan. Nearing the end of our semester journey, the students spent another weekend in their praxis sites, and they had a few photos and some insights to share…
Top Photo: While I am sad to be so far away from my family in the States, I’ve met a new family here in the Philippines that I am so thankful and blessed to be a part of.

Middle right: This is a picture of me and three of my favorite people in Sitio Payong. This is Khristine, on the left, K.C., in the middle, and Ate Fe in the back. Words cannot describe how beautiful these people are. This photo was taken during a chalk session with the little kiddies. We had so much fun!

Bottom Photo: These are some of the children of Sitio Payong, hanging out and playing in the remaining structure of a house. That day, they were color coordinated, and as always, they put a smile on my face.
