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!
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!!!!
The girls played two games today. They lost their first well-fought game 3 - 2. They won their second game 2 - 0!!!!!
ISAC tournaments start tomorrow. The Boys High School basketball team along with the Girls Soccer Team left today for Manila. The competition is held at the British International School in Manila.
Mikayla is excited and a bit nervous about this opportunity. We will keep you posted on the team results. They play two games each day Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
Depending on how well they do they may play an additional game or two Saturday for the play-offs! Tiring, but fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The High School/Middle School Girls Soccer Team of Faith Academy is going to the ISAC tournaments next week in Manila. Pray for safe travels for them.
This past weekend some of the team played in a '7 out' tournament the city held. Faith tied for 2nd place. The girls did a great job.
