Kirsten All-ISAC

Kirsten was awarded the all-ISAC defensive award!

Hiking and Soccer

Kirsten is in Subic, near Manila, for the annual International School Athletic Competition (ISAC) for soccer. The team is in third place as of this morning, but playoffs are today, so the status may change!

Mikayla and Ben are climbing Mt. Apo, the tallest peak in the Philippines, with some friends. It's a three day journey. They'll be back this evening. I look forward to posting photos from their hike as I sent my camera with Ben to take pictures!

Mt. Apo is a mountain near Davao. We can view it quite well from various locations around town.

Just As I Am

"Define yourself radically as one beloved by God. This is the true self. Every other identity is illusion."
― Brennan Manning, Abba's Child: The Cry of the Heart for Intimate Belonging

So thankful to know God loves each of us just as we are, how we are, where we are. We do not need to clean up our act to come to him. Just come. Just as you are.

Musical Dishes

Ben was washing dishes the other night to the music of his mp3 player! So thankful for his help with daily household chores!
