I’m missing the folks from FBCI.
I live relatively simply in the Philippine jungle. No air conditioning. No hot water. No car. But this 20 year old Honda Super 4, a rare luxury for us here, has turned my beard dark again. Literally! When we arrived in Baguio City after seven hours on the road, my mustache and beard had changed from snow white into a chocolate brown. This bike is helping me reclaim my youth. #super4, #youthrestored
Our missionary students taking the final exam for the World Geography class. #smallworld, #whereisit?
We were blessed to have a Disney cartoonist with many. many years of experience create a logo for our use with Hands of Hope. We are now retiring this logo, but I’ll miss this guy.
Every time I visit elementary schools here in Aurora I am blessed by the kids. Their smiles, their exuberance, their innocence … I leave each encounter at the schools with a sense that all is well and we are surrounded by many, many redeemable souls.
Bagtu Elementary School turned into chaos for about an hour while we visited with the teachers and provided them with needed materials for their classrooms. I love the kids here in the Philippines!
We’ve been given the opportunity to visit with the local elementary and high schools over the past week. We purchased school supplies to assist the teachers this time, not the students as we have done in the past, and they were most grateful.
This is the jazz box I made for my oldest son for his 40th birthday. He loves it - now he just needs to learn to play it!
