As the seasons change, we begin to see transformation. Likewise we are happy to see transformation going on in lives at CCS.
CCS high school principal, Mark Maranon, recently praised our guys basketball team for never giving up, saying..."You earned the respect of the referees and table officials as well as mine. They were more excited to watch every time you played…To God be the glory!”
Congratulations also to our volleyball girls who just won their way into the quarterfinal knock-out round. The team is mentored by KIM missionary Madi Bennett and CCS high school teacher Sherel Francisco (both in blue jerseys in back row).
Also, "Well done and thank you!" to Madi Bennett who recently was in the U.S. and represented KIM to an audience of nearly 1,000 at Orphan Grain Train’s 25th anniversary celebration.
Passing on the Filipino culture and language is promoted through month-long activities that end with a parade and judging of oral and musical presentations and literary works. KIM missionary Ellen Bland spoke for this year’s event. It’s beautiful to see the students discover their God-given talents and their varied and colorful culture.
More transformations are continuing at our elementary site this month. The Lighthouse, a Filipino group that helps kids whose fathers are constructions workers, lent their skills and generosity to cover two of our outside staircases with chip seal and to move our entrance gate to provide a safer exit in the event of an earthquake.
Our Musicians of Tomorrow violinists were excited to perform by invitation at a Literary Musical Competition for private school students, and they had a chance to serenade the people at Jollibee (the Philippine version of McDonalds).
Lastly, take a moment to enjoy our elementary students' version of the popular Baby Shark song: (First log into your Facebook account, then access link on this page) https://www.facebook.com/kaye.cherry.5/videos/1799448216750034/
