Pictorial Year in Review

Our family continues to have an amazing time serving in the Philippines.

We started the year on vacation in Tagaytay, Philippines. What you see in the picture above is a volcano inside a lake. 

Of course our kids continued to grow

. . . and grow.

In March we completed our third Timothy Internship Program, training six new missionaries.

It is an honor and privilege to work with the Sonshine Center and Pastor Chris Patricio. He is an amazing man of God, and good friend.

Of course one of the biggest ministries of the Sonshine Center is Summer camps, 
which began in April.

This year the Summer camps were directed by Go To Nations missionaries Nomil and Valerie Adorada. As always they did an excellent job running the camps.

This year Danny was a camper.

So many children were touched.

We ended up ministering to over one thousand kids.

This Summer Eric (and Faithy and even Danny) got in on the action, serving as assistant counselors.

In 2011 our last baby had her first birthday.

This is a thirty-two inch pizza. It almost doesn't fit on my dining room table. In 2011 we ate plenty (Chris thinks too many) of these.

Ministry continued throughout the year at the Sonshine Center.

In 2011 we enjoyed some visiting missions teams, and some returning teams, like Tim Tardibono (above) and his team from Capital LIfe Church.

We were Stateside for most of the American Summer, and my Mom took us to Walt Disney World.

Where Dannny faced the Dark Side.

In the Fall of 2011 Go To Nations held their first ever Affiliate Missionary Preparation training outside the United States. We trained twenty-one Filipino missionaries.

Several of the trainees joined our agency, like Peter (above). Here he makes it "officially" official, by signing on the bottom line. He and other Filipino nationals will one day serve abroad as full time missionaries.

In November we enjoyed a visit by the GTN President, Jerry Williamson. Here we are about to take a ride on the wild side, riding on the back of the Sonshine Center jeepney.

From our family to yours, Happy New Year!
