  In the heart of Manila is the original "Walled City" of Intramuros. Built by the Spanish back in the early 1500's it is now a tourist attraction where daily activities continue even to this day. The government has many offices there and schools and universities operate within the walls. One university shows its roots to the mid-1500's. This is the area we find ourselves for our next training.

We had originally scheduled our Rotary training at a government building, but at last minute we changed to a small private school. Joy Kiddie Center is the subject of my next blog entry.
Two of our 18 graduates for this training are the Dupaix's. Edie is in the red. We met them in the MTC and have continued our friendship here. They are assigned to Public Affairs and are taking the training as part of an article they are writing on Humanitarian Services.
 This is Elder Roger Dupaix. He coached Skyline High School football in Salt Lake City and is the winningest high school football coach in the state of Utah.
We finally find a guy who knew the tricks of the trade in wheelchairs. He is a physical therapist and showed us all how to 'balance' a chair.
We graduated 18 and had a great time during this training. It's all about the people. Whether we train them or it's a person that gets a wheelchair, it's all about the one. Our Father in Heaven's work is one on one. We are each valuable in his site.
