Kirsten snapped this photo as we drove home from church last night.

I really like the peacefulness and beauty of this photo.

Psalm 22: 27 All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the LORD, and all the families of the nations will bow down before him,

28 for dominion belongs to the LORD and he rules over the nations.

Faith Academy

We've had many people ask us what kind of school our kids go to.
We are so thankful for Faith Academy, its leadership and teachers.

"Since its founding in 1982, the goal of Faith's campus on Mindanao has been to provide a quality education for the children of missionaries. Faith Academy Inc. on Mindanao serves over 25 different mission agencies, as well as the business community. Approximately 130 students in grades K-12 represent more than 10 countries. Smaller classes allow for more personal interaction between teachers, students, and families.

Faith Academy, Mindanao, like its Manila counterpart, seeks to provide students with a quality, well-balanced, Christ-centered academic education....Faith Academy, Mindanao also has enrolled a limited number of international students."

Check out their website...and for any teachers, retired or active, consider coming over to provide quality Christian education to the MKs!!!! http://www.faith.edu.ph/mindanao/

We went to Frankenmuth today for some fun looking through Bronner's (the largest Christmas store in the world), good food at one of the local restaurants, and some family time together!
