Philippine Visitors

Fr. Noel from Elizabeth and Judith Glenn, Philip's mom, came and talked to us on Thursday about the Philippines. Father gave us some history of the country. It was named after the Spanish King Philip II. They became a member of the United Nations in 1946 and currently have a democracy that the U.S. helped them establish. Father and Judith had a hard time getting a hold of family members after the typhoon. It took them about three days to contact them to find out that they were okay! Both of their families had some rain and winds but were not hit by the center of the typhoon. This motivated the students to start baking for the bake sale this week.
