About Us

We are Michael and Lani Barrett and we live in one of the most beautiful places in the world – The Republic of the Philippines.

Michael was born in the United States, in Virginia and has traveled the world extensively during his Navy career. He has also been a special education school teacher for primary grades. He graduated from Liberty University.

Lani is a native of the Philippines, born in Sumilao, Bukidnon province, on the island of Mindanao. She attended Sumilao Bukidnon Tribal University and Mindanao State University – Naawan.

Together, with the 2 children and two of Lani’s sisters and one brother, currently reside in Bacoor, Cavite province. 

Life can be hectic in the Philippines at times, but it can also be laid back.
