Kirsten and Friend

Last night we attended the sports award ceremony at Faith International Academy. Kirsten earned a letter and also received the best defense, a.k.a. StoneWall Kirsten, award. She is really excellent as a defender and stopping balls that the other team is trying to score into the net!

Kirsten and Janey are great friends, class mates, and team

OE Video

Would you like to watch an Outdoor Education Video that Ben participated in in February? There are several schools that do this trip each year. Faith Academy in Manila put this video together. You can find it at

I love the determined look on Kirsten's face as she goes for
the ball. It reminds me of the verse in Hebrews 12:1-3 to "let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy
that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
3 Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted."

Eventually when we move to the USA we will most likely move to Colorado Springs, Colorado so Kurt can work out of the LightSys headquarters. Here are some pictures of the office.
