It’s more fun in the Philippines—new slogan of the Department of Tourism.

Robert Greenspan, 52, an American investor in the country, was outside Mercury Drugstore in Barangay San Dionisio, Parañaque City, waiting for his friend, another American, who was buying drugs in the pharmacy.

It was 2 a.m. of Jan. 17.

Suddenly, he felt a thud on his head. He had been struck with a piece of wood.

Dazed by the blow, he turned around to see three men, one of whom was about to strike him again.

Greenspan, who studied self-defense in the United States, fought back and downed two of the three men.

Other men came and ganged up on him.

Overpowered, the medium-built American ran to a nearby 7-Eleven convenience store where he thought an armed security guard would help him.

Instead of helping the poor guy, Avelino Gaupo of  La Fortezza Security Agency closed the store’s door on him and watched as Greenspan was being pummeled by more than six men.

As Greenspan was down on the pavement, he was repeatedly kicked by his attackers on his rib cage.

Greenspan thought, “This is it, they’re going to kill me so I might as well stand up and fight again!”

Using the last ounce of his strength, he stood up and vainly fought his attackers for the second time.

A woman who screamed made his attackers scamper in different directions.

Greenspan lost a necklace which, he says has  sentimental value, and his cell phone to his attackers.

Yes, it’s more fun in the Philippines if a tourist is looking for trouble.
Romans 8:38-39
"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,  neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
