Reflecting on our visit to the Philippines

The Philippines. Just like you, I am devastated. We were just there this summer and since we’ve left, the country has been hit by an earthquake and a typhoon right in a row. Fortunately, most of our family was out of harm’s way. My mom, Kenny and I had a life changing experience there. Filipinos are an incredible bunch. Much like Koreans, they will go to great lengths to make sure you are taken care of and are enjoying your time in their beautiful country. And when you’re lucky enough to have them as your family, boy you’re all set!

The beauty. The people. That’s why it has been difficult to process everything that is happening there right now.  But if there was a group of people in the world that could bond together to rebuild the country, it would be the Filipinos.

For some of you, the most you’ve seen of the Philippines has been that of destruction and loss through the newspaper or your TV. But for now, I would like to share some photos of the beauty.
