First Philippine Church Visit

Well, we finally decided it was time to stop pretending like we're tourists here & start acting like residents. So, we are attending our first church service in the morning. Actually, we've just been very lazy about finding a congregation to visit. There are plenty available, but it's a little difficult since we can't just get in our car & drive. We either have to coordinate it with our driver (who is really great, by the way) or take a taxi (which is a huge pain!) or arrange for the condominium driver to take us (which is pretty expensive). But, we decided to just do it!

So, tomorrow morning, we will be visiting the Union Church of Manila.

It's close, it's international & most importantly, they speak English. We figured that would be a good place to start. Plus, they have a children's ministry and one of my favorite features, a public library! Apparently, it is the only public lending library in Makati, where we live. So, I am really looking forward to browsing there!

I am sure we will have a good worship experience there. I'm excited!

I'll be interested to hear about it!
That is something I love to think about- how all over the world there are churches meeting together for the same reason...we are all one big family!

Can't wait to hear how your experience went and to see if you went to the contemporary or traditional service.

I know the feeling! We have been in and out so much here, they probably think we're heathens...maybe they're right!
