Reflections / Prayer Request

It's funny how packing and moving physical items seems to unpack and unsettle emotional and family issues. In the recent process of moving, some family issues have come to light that we need to deal with. Please pray with us for wisdom as parents in how to disciple, train and encourage our kids; pray for our family. Thanks.


Ben passed his Bushido-Kai belt testing last night and is now a green belt! Yeah, Ben!!!!!

Moving June 2011

Tomorrow (Thursday June 30) we move to our new rental house.
It is still close to school and saves us a bit of money each month in rent.
We signed up for internet at the new rental but it will take about 10 days or so to come up, so I'm not sure how often I'll be posting in the next couple weeks.
We've been busy packing, having a painter friend paint the house, fixing up the house a bit, cleaning...
Tomorrow morning a jeepney will help us take our stuff to the new house. We have 3 or 4 guys helping too! It should go well.
Keep us in your prayers; for the move, for our financial support to increase.

Packing James

We've been busy packing for our move tomorrow.
The other day James was busily putting stuffed animals into grocery sacks in his effort to help pack!

He insisted that he could do it himself! It was very cute to watch
him intently putting a stuffed animal or two into each grocery sack.

Jerard was enjoying the noise of the bags.

Student Permit

Mikayla is now the proud owner of a student driver's permit. Her Daddy will be teaching her how to drive here!
(but when she gets to the USA she'll have to unlearn all the Filipino driving habits!!!)
