Soccer Action

Goal net

I've been enjoying learning how to use our camera and was able to catch more action shots today at the girl's soccer game they played this morning against a local school.

It was a great game. Mikayla did really well as goalie the first half of the game and playing defense the second half.

Encourage One Another...

Recently Anne and Bob Owens from "Barnabas International" were here to encourage the SIL mission community here in Davao.

To find out more about 'Barnabas International' go to their website:
"Welcome to Barnabas International!
Providing pastoral care to missionaries, MKs, global servants and their families."

One of the events we hosted was a women's supper at our house.

God has blessed us with a house able to hold many visitors.

Anne Owens

After a pot-luck dinner, Anne shared an encouraging message about how God orchestrates our lives for His glory and our good; and how encouraging it can be to others to share what God has done in our lives. After she spoke, there was a time for some of the women to share some of what God has done or is doing in their lives. It was a wonderful evening.

1 Thess. 5:11
Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.

Heb. 3:13
But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today,

"Hey Mom, I've got great news for you!" Ben said excitedly to me the other day.

"What's that, hon?" I answered.

"Of all our family you'll be the first one to go to Heaven and see Jesus!"

"How do you know that?" I said with a smile and a heart that was melting with happiness at his passion for Christ and spending eternity in Heaven.

"Because you are the oldest and the tallest of us all!"

Duet. 29:29The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law.
