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 http://faithacademy.smugmug.com/Video/Outdoor-Ed/

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."

Here are a few other photos from Baguio ISAC....

LightSys Headquarters

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.

High School OutDoor Ed 2015

Recently the high schoolers took a short week-long mission trip to a nearby island to help build an orphanage. Here are some pics of Kirsten at work. She enjoyed the physical labor, cement mixing, and sense of accomplishment projects like these bring.

Baguio ISAC 2015

Faith International Academy girls soccer and boys basketball recently travelled to Baguio in northern Luzon (about 6 hour drive north of Manila), for the yearly International School Athletic Competition held three times yearly for the various sports.

Kirsten was part of the Faith Girls Soccer team that travelled to Baguio. Kurt and I were blessed to be able to travel up with the teams to cheer the athletes on in the competition.

The girls soccer came in 4th place overall and the boys won all their games to place the champions of the ISAC boys basketball tournament. It was fun to watch the students and cheer them on.

Kurt and I took a little time away from the tournament to do some sight seeing of Baguio - the vacation capital of the Philippines because it is up in the mountains and cool. It is 5050 feet above sea level. It felt so wonderful to be in 70-80's and cool breezes!!!
