Bubbles make everything more fun!
Nothing is more fun than a night of minigolf with the family. 10 adults and 10 kids! Grandpa had 3 hole in ones!
Over our October break this school year, we were able to go to Thailand and join other WV Asia staff for a conference. We had the quite the adventure, got to meet new people, eat new food and have some new experiences. The overnight train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai So we decided to be adventurous and we took the overnight train. It was good, I was not sure if the kids were going to sleep but after a long day of traveling it was not hard to convince them to sleep. I (jason) was not sure that I was going to sleep but the rocking of the cars and a blindfold did me in. Next morning we woke up to beautiful countryside and a fun video call from my sister. Who knew that thailand had high speed internet in the middle of nowhere.
First off, we are not pregnant! (Isn’t that an attention grabbing title though!) Instead we are boarding a Faith student with us over the school year, his name is Bryan. His family lives far enough away that it takes him about 1.5 hours to travel to school, but since they are still in Manila he does not qualify for boarding. Bryan is an amazing kid who will graduate high school in 2017 at the age of 16. This year he is planning on taking 11 or 12 AP tests this spring and about half of them are new subjects that he is learning this year. He is hoping to go to the London School of Economics next year and eventually lead his family business. Last year he connected with Jason by volunteering to help out with the spring musical and since then he become fast friends with the Quick family. Sarah and I see the amazing potential that God has given Bryan and we are excited to share our life and faith with him as he lives in our house over this school year. The kids love him and he loves to talk with me (jason) over almost any topic, so we are praying and asking God to use us to draw Bryan closer to Himself. We have no doubt that Bryan will be an influencer in the future and we are praying that God will use him to change the world.
Seven, already! My goodness it seems just like yesterday when he was coming home from the hospital. Now we are building with legos, kicking soccer balls, and reading starwars books. We praise God for the time that he has given us with Ezra and can’t wait to see what God will do with Him in the future. Ezra enjoyed his party at a trampoline park not too far from our house. We had a lot of fun!
