Philippine Photos

Still out camping...another robo-post.  But it's an important one.  See, when I served my mission to the Philippines, technology was just on the edge of making digital cameras ubiquitous.  While all my later companions had one, I was like my earlier companions and had to load actual film.  This means I had to physically get my pictures developed (which I sometimes forgot to do before I lost the roll of film) or if I did get them developed, I often gave them away to the people who wanted to remember me.

The pictures that did make it home got stuffed into boxes and gradually got kinda got lost.  I've got no computer files of them.  So when one of my mission friends posts a picture of me on facebook, I be sure to save a copy and share it one the blog.  I'd like my sons to be able to see images from my mission.  So, here are two Philippine mission pictures courtesy of my companion Elder Satorre.
