Good afternoon! We are LOVING the rain here in Mindanao! It's been raining nearly every afternoon for the past week, cooling things down a lot and allowing us to have power more often. I remember earlier in the year when I was very tired of the rain because I missed the sunshine.... but for now, I'm enjoying it.

We came home Monday after an amazing weekend away-- white beach, nice pool, and a JET SKI! Ok, so the jet ski was only half an hour, but just Kevin had enough fun to make it worth the rental:). We didn't go very far from home, so it wasn't a big deal to go away. Mostly we just swam, relaxed, read, and enjoyed being together as a family. Thank you, Jesus!

This is a "get ready" week... get ready to head to Palawan and Manila. We are looking forward to some time with Ben & Suzy and other friends in Palawan. Garry is preparing quite a bit of stuff for the trip and I'm working on putting in a solid week of school with the boys and getting things organized to go. Since we'll cook for ourselves in Palawan today we cooked and shredded some chicken and also made some extra tortillas.

Tomorrow, Thursday, Elias and his family head for Germany. Pray for safe and uneventful flights for them as well as strength. We are excited to hear the good news from the doctors in Germany!

Brian is doing a bit of flying this week, so Bailey has been monitoring the radio from here at our house. It's been good to have a bit more time together again!
