Greetings…. I just arrived back in Manila from the second Asian Deaf Catholic Conference near Tagaytay City outside of Manila. It turned out that the wi-fi there didn’t work–the signal was just too weak–and even my data connection on my smartphone wouldn’t work in that remote area. I have now arrived at the hotel in Manila and am using their wi-fi so I can send this preliminary message and then get to work. I just downloaded 247 e-mails to respond to from the last four days of no connection. If you sent me something, I’m getting to it! Please be patient!
