Set Building Fun!

The play is coming up quick and so my class has risen to the occasion and has been really working hard to get things rolling.   Our load-in day is next wednesday and so we have been working hard to build various set pieces that we will assemble on stage.  In the photo we are beginning the “aging” process because our set will look like it came from wild-west when it is completed…

Collaboration is the best thing to pray for us over the next few weeks.  There are a lot of moving parts coming together and we need to mesh well for the production come off well.

C4TK Manila

These last few months Jason has had the chance to begin to speak into the tech world here in Manila. In October, I had the chance to co-lead a hackathon, where we changed philippine techies to come up with solutions to help out the many overseas foreign workers.  Some great ideas were hatched and I enjoyed getting to know the guys who came out and it was great to explore the idea of how our Faith and work can connect.  God did an amazing job pulling together a great leadership team for the event and I am looking forward to see how God will use our team this year.  Our team is looking into the how we can continue develop the Faith and Work connection here in the tech industry here in Manila.

ICEC Teachers Conference

Sarah and many teachers from Faith got to go to a teachers conference at The International Christian School of Hong Kong. The school paid for her flight and the ticket for the conference and Sarah stayed with Wade and Kate Simons who work at the school.  Wade and Kate came worked for a year at Faith and so it was great for Sarah to go and reconnect with the family again.  Sarah came away from the conference really encouraged and energized.  It was great to have some time to think about classroom strategy outside of the classroom itself.

Cadd Christmas Programs

These last few months have been pretty full for Jason with theater events.  This last semester we did the Pirates of Penzance and Shakespeare’s 12th Night as well as 4 band, choir, string, and concerts with both Middle School and High School groups.    I (Jason) thank God that I have a great team of staff and students around me to help me carry out these events.  It is great to help my team to develop their skills and use them to serve God and the community of missionaries working in SE Asia.  This picture is from the elementary christmas program where I (Jason) got to partner with our new elementary music teacher, she did a great job of organizing over a 100 kids into a fantastic program.
