from basketball starters to night of stars

The International School Athletic Conference gathered
from January 22nd- 25th at the British School of Manila.

There our high school girls' basketball team (including Elise and Amy) and the boys' soccer team competed with several other schools in the league.
 Top: all of the delegates from our school in Davao
Bottom Left: Sister-work - Elise picks an opponent to make room for Amy to get through
Bottom Middle: our girls' team won 3rd place - not bad for a school 1/4 the size of most of the others!
Bottom Right: Amy is named one of the All-ISAC team
Then last weekend Amy and Elise joined together musically on stage 
at the school's Night of Stars performing "Concerning Hobbits" in a beautiful piano/flute duet.
(Yes, I'm a little bit biased.)
How thankful we are for opportunities like this
in a community of believers unlike anything we could have imagined.
It's been a wonderful thing in the lives of our children.

 "Truly I say to you, there is no one who has left house or wife or brothers or parents or children, 
for the sake of the kingdom of God,  
who will not receive many times as much at this time 
and in the age to come, eternal life."
Luke 18:29-30

And we give thanks to God for His faithfulness...
