I, your Pambansang Manlalakbay Armie “Happy Loner Traveller” Yuson is thirsty for yet another unforgettable adventure, after my Tangadan Falls discovery in San Gabriel La Union, I became so addicted in discovering more places that have never been or was less featured on National Television, as well as on the Internet World. And so I have heard this Tale about Two Mythical Falls found in the virgin forest of Binukawan Bagac Bataan, fifty meters apart with thirty and sixty meters high. Yes! Two Falls found in one place for they are like sisters that is connected by one channel of continuous overflowing clear and pristine river that came all the way from the purest springs of the highest unchartered mountains of Bagac Bataan. You can even drink the water that is literally coming out from ... read more

"Americanos! Americanos!" a little boy with a grinning-face yelled as he ran along with our van. We entered the village, and one of our vehicles got stuck due to the collapsed road caused by the recent typhoon. Villagers quickly offered help and pushed us out. We finally parked in the remote village where children poured out of huts and rice fields to welcome us. Those same children later echoed, "Santa Claus! Santa Claus!"... read more

This school was in town so we didn't have to travel too far. We performed a puppet show teaching the children about God's love and salvation through Jesus Christ alone. The students know English (for the most part). They all wear uniforms, including the teachers. Students go to school from 8am-4pm with a 2- hour break to go home for lunch. Students are separated in to two sections based on intelligence. The higher of the two is the group that is tested, considered for schools of excellence, and measured against other schools.... read more

We visited an elementary school in a village with about 200 students. Caroline, Eden, and I performed a puppet show about Jesus, then Laura and Megan sang songs with the children. Next, our team handed out candy. Many of the children had never seen white people before; therefore, some giggled in corners, a few stayed away, and some approached us seeking love and attention...which we gave them! :-) The second grade teacher took me into all seven classrooms to meet the students, and I tested the children on their English. They passed perfectly!... read more

After church in the village, we went to Mt. Samat until the next service. Here is some information on Mt. Samat: The town of Pilar, Bataan takes pride of having Mt. Samat's gigantic cross also known as the "Dambana ng Kagitingan" (Altar of Valor). Erected in April 1942, the cross symbolizes the heroic & courageous defense made by the fatigued, hungry & sick Filipino and American soldiers in regaining our freedom during World War II. We also saw the famous volcano, Mount Pinatubo. Mount Pinatubo is situated in the southern part of Luzon. It is one of the biggest volcanoes in the Philippines. In 1991, the Pinatubo became in a few months one of the most known volcanoes in the world. In that year the Pinatubo erupted violently. Other landforms we saw from the view at ... read more

We are greeted on our hotel steps by a beautiful welcoming committee from Cornerstone Fundamental Baptist Mission with a massive banner and about 25-30 people. I am overwhelmed by their love, giving nature, and dedication. They present each of us with colorful baskets of local fruits such as bananas, grapes, oranges, and something else in which I cannot yet identify. It is delicious. Thank you, God, for allowing us to arrive here safely.... read more
