Here’s a short video about my Christmas in the Philippines. Whether you’re drenched in sweat from Filipino humidity or shivering through a Boston blizzard, sending island sun to you as you watch!
**NOTE, Please excuse my mispronunciation of Negros Oriental, the island where I am serving. My pronunciation should be nay-gros, not nee-gros, especially as my pronunciation in the video is synonomous with the word “Negro,” a derogatory and outdated term used to describe someone of African-American heritage. (In 2016, Obama signed a bill blocking the U.S. government from using this word to describe minorities. More info in article, What’s in a Name? Negro vs. African American vs. Black, from Ebony Magazine.) Thank you!
