Prayer Praise

I love posting prayer requests on's amazing how fast God answers sometimes!
This afternoon, the clarinet that has been missing for a week was discovered to be down at the school in the lost and found and why it got there we don't know but we praise God we found it!!!! Thanks for your prayers!


Life can take interesting twists and turns in many ways....

one twist we are dealing with right now is that it appears Mikayla's clarinet has been stolen......

Please pray for us to either find her clarinet or have the means to replace it for her. She really is a gifted player and it is quite disappointing that her clarinet has disappeared....

Thanks for praying......

ISAC update

Well, the girls lost both games on Saturday but they feel like winners for doing so well against tough competition.
ISAC ended last night with a banquet for all the players and coaches.
Today (Sunday) they fly back to Davao. Pray for safe travels for them. We have missed Mikayla and it will be good to see her again!

ISAC update

The Girls team are playing well against tough competition.
They played two games on Friday, losing 1-0 and 2-0 but feeling like winners because they've been playing well and not getting trounced on.
They play two games this morning. If they win one of those games they will then play again this afternoon in the playoffs!

Brown Outs and other musings.....

We've had almost daily brown outs this week. This is a bit unusual. It does happen occasionally but usually not daily.
When the power goes out so does the water!

It's always good to keep some buckets of water filled in the CR
and kitchen for times when the water isn't running!
Our internet has been a bit flaky lately too which is why there was a 6 day gap in updates. But this evening it is up and I can post this! Yea!
We all are doing well.
Mikayla is in Manila with her soccer team. Next year Kurt and I hope to be able to travel up there (or at least one of us) and watch the team play!

Kirsten is rehearsing for a play she is in "Tom Sawyer".

Ben is working on first grade learning and is a big help playing with James who is one big bundle of 17-month old energy.

Jerard continues to make improvements slowly but surely.

Kurt's work is going well, he is keeping up on his language learning, and helping some Filipino friends learn Java.

I am staying busy with homeschooling, Momhood in general, and hospitality things at SIL (though I have delegated many of those responsibilities so I can better focus on being Mom to my kids!)
I am also heading up the elementary after-school sports baseball and t-ball which starts Monday and runs for five weeks, M and W.

Thanks for all your prayers! We appreciate them and you more than words can say!!!!
