Some of the children with their new soft toys

Last week Marilou and I travelled to Davao to visit our dear friend from the UK Mrs Lorna Wishart and her daughter Ria who are currently holidaying in Davao.
We had a wonderful time in Davao and whilst there we visited the Eden Nature Park and enjoyed an all in buffet lunch and tour of the Parks facilities. The highest point in the Park is 2,800 meters and for a foreigner the temperature at this altitude is superb.
I would recommend a visit to Eden for anyone going to Davao.
Another place we visited whilst there was Jack’s Ridge which is a restaurant complex with a magnificent view of the city of Davao and the bay area.
Apart from having a fantastic time in even more fantastic company as always when enjoying ones self it was too short and we had to return to Talakag.
Before leaving Davao Lorna produced a large sack of soft toys for the children at Bethany as well as a monetary donation for the Rubber Project. Lorna has been a regular donor to Bethany and Marilou and I could not thank her enough for her kindness.
This week Lorna and Ria will travel back to the cold of the Stockton on Tees in the North East of England and we wish them both safe journey and I’m sure her husband Robert will have missed them both whilst they were in Davao as he had to stay at home due to work commitments.
Once again, thank you Lorna from everyone at Bethany Christian Home for Children Inc.
