It’s been a whirlwind of activity

It’s been a whirlwind of activity

September 4th, 2007 | By Nyx living in Philippines | More from Nyx

In re-capsuling the last few months–well, last few years, in fact, I see a definite pattern in a one-year-per-episode that the Lord has been making of my life. This last year, I did lots of travel…while trying to find my place on this mission field. It was hard to know how or where I could […]

The baby is now a month old, and still nameless. What a wonder! Somehow my Leo mind and my husbands Gemini mind don’t seem to come to a conclusion on this one… ok give it a week and we will have it. Right now we are understaffed by 5 people; Dani, Sunshine, David, Laura, and […]

We have been working on our set up in the preschoolers’ room, and….voila, I can say with a smile that we have almost completed it. Of course, it will always be a work in progress and we will need to upgrade our materials, equipment etc etc. But some major things have gotten done. For one, […]

Cheers for Munj!

Cheers for Munj, the new addition to our team!  A lovely girl, and brilliant with children. Her real name is Mariangela, but the kids and all call her Munj for short.  I was a bit concerned as before when a new teacher would come, the toddlers would break out in all kinds of embarrassing and […]

This week our market friends donated so much papaya that after eating, drinking and preserving it in all the traditional ways we found ourselves putting papaya into the chicken sauce. That’s right, we ate papaya-pineapple-chicken sauce. Don’t ask me how the idea came up. It wouldn’t have occurred to me in a million years. It […]

Congratulations David!

Congratulations David!

Congratulations David and Aurora on your new baby boy! The little guy looks just like his father (who happens to be my brother) and is such a little ducky! I guess with 20 days to my due date I can’t help but wonder whether mine will be a boy or a girl, (here is it […]

A new disciple

A new disciple

May 7th, 2007 | By Nyx living in Philippines | More from Nyx

Something happened this week that is possibly the most exciting thing for me in my history of being in the Family: one of my friends (whom I met this year) just joined the Home and moved in as a new disciple!!! I know that the life he has chosen will be one he’ll never regret, […]

Goodbye Anisa!

Goodbye Anisa!

May 4th, 2007 | By Sara and Vincent living in India | More from Sara and Vincent

Anisa has been part of our home here for about 2 years now, and has always been a tremendous help and asset. Well, it looks like its time for her to move and God is calling her on to bigger and better things. Well, at least bigger and better for her. I was praying today […]

Practice buzz

Practice buzz

May 3rd, 2007 | By Nyx living in Philippines | More from Nyx

Our little house has been a buzz of activity all week. I think performing arts come naturally to kids growing up in the Family International; music is very much a part of our outreach ministries, and we are taught at an early age to use the gifts and talents the Lord gives us to benefit […]
