My view from Guam. I just left my family, and new friends in Manila and Ilian Island. I have many mixed feelings about returning home.

The people on Ilian still need so much help and I am traveling back into an uncertain storm. I am truly thankful for being apart of the people, culture and experience if Ilian island

Yes they are very, very poor people but, there was a joy that radiants from many of them that was palpable.

I want to thank Father Feranado Suarez MMMP, and all the seminaries for faithfully serving the people of Ilian. You are His hands and feet.

Thank you to Manny, Rorrie, Evelyn, my new Chinese Grandma, Zina and Ken for giving so much of your time, talents and hearts. You all helped me so much is more ways then you will ever know. I look forward to the day I see you all again.
