Party Time!

We had a wonderful time at our annual ACSI Christmas party last night. It was held at a great venue that overlooked our beautiful city. The food was amazing and so was the fellowship. So thankful to be able to work alongside such a great team!

Santa Sighting

We happened upon Santa today, and started talking to him; he was strolling down the street in Old Colorado City. He said he has been doing this for 25 years, visiting hospitals and other places. Thank you for volunteering your time, Mr. Santa, and bringing a little bit of Christmas cheer to so many!

Ending our time in Korea

We had a great end to our stay in Korea; the last two days were "the icing on the cake"! We were able to spend a day with Esther, who was in my small group at BFA, and who is living in Seoul.
Esther has her own clothing line and took us to her studio. We also visited the school where she volunteers, Shineland Christian School, an ACSI member school. We were very blessed and encouraged by our time at the school. Wow! What a special group of staff and students! We were also so blessed by the hours that we were able to visit with Esther. She is an amazing young lady who has a heart for the Lord.

This little pre-school boy kept bowing to Tim and I, out of respect; he bowed all the way to the floor! What a sweetheart!

Special messages in the signage above each of the classrooms.

Tim gave a greeting in all of the classrooms.

Korean BBQ for lunch, compliments of the Director of Shineland.

Check out these typical Korean desserts that Esther wanted us to try (frozen milk that is shaved and then topped with lots of good stuff - ice cream, fruit, etc..).

BFA Reunion in Seoul

Tim and I were able to attend a BFA (Black Forest Academy) reunion in Seoul, following the ICEC Asia conference in Daejeon (Korea). What a treat it was to see and visit with so many former students! We had a wonderful evening - 35 of us altogether!

Class of 2010 represented at the reunion.

Katey was in my small group at BFA. We have not seen each other since she graduated in 2010, and we get to meet up in Korea!!

Recent Travels

We are in South Korea where Tim has been heading up ICEC Asia (International Christian Educators Conference). After many, many months of preparation for this event, it was a great success with an overall attendance between 600 - 700 delegates. I am so proud of my husband and grateful to God for gifting and equipping him, and helping him to ace this conference. He is very tired, but also very thankful that the conference ran so smoothly.
This album contains many photos from the conference, and show old friends as well as new friends that we met. Too many pictures and too much effort to explain them all (they are posted here primarily for my record of wonderful memories!).
