Ministry Outreach Weekend!
A couple weeks ago, our big kids (12 and older) got to spend the weekend in Real Quezon sharing their talents to share God's love to the indigenous people. The kids led worship music, shared stories, served food, played games, and simply shared the love of God to the children in the province. After spending most of the weekend serving, the kids got to enjoy some recreational time hiking, going to the beach and swimming at waterfalls. They came home refreshed and with thankful hearts for all they have. It is so fun to see our children use their talents to spread the Gospel.
R is Adopted! At the beginning of November, 'R' joined his forever family! After many years of waiting on both sides, this family was finally able to be joined. We could not be happier for this precious family!
One of our oldest girls turned 18 this month! In the Philippines, a girl's 18th birthday is a big deal and is cause for a big celebration, so we had one! She felt the love of her family from receiving the traditional 18 roses accompanied with 18 dances with all of our boys, 18 gifts, and 18 purple bills. We are proud of the young woman 'A' is becoming. She is such a great influence on all our younger kiddos.

Praise for the abundant Christmas provisions!
Prayer and praise for 'R' and his new family as they all adjust.
