since we haven't put much up here, here's just an information post...
some great things that have been happening -
*last week, ICS took their middle school students to camp, and i was privileged to be their speaker for their sessions. in between time though, i was free to hang out with them and get to know them for 3 days. it was a blast to be outdoors for three days in a COMPLETELY different part of hong kong, hanging out with middle school students, and being able to see the ministry of the ICS teachers at work. the talks went alright, though i was incredibly nervous!
*i love ultimate frisbee, and i'm completely obsessed. grant and i have been playing regularly in the league as we mentioned, and last night was just another great night. we played a long game against the previously unbeaten team. we were down 7-8 at the half, and scored the next 6 points after half until the lights went out. it was a fantastic, tough, and good spirited game. then (as has become routine for us) we went out with some people for a beer, appetizers, and peanut shell throwing fun.
*for mid-autumn festival, one of the ICS parents invited a bunch of the teachers over, so it was awesome (for me) to be able to see some of those folks again and hang out with them more.
*yesterday we took a group of 25 or so kayaking - mostly teens though some parents came as well. it seemed like the kids enjoyed themselves, and no one drowned!
*grant is rocking my world this week as my substitute for youth stuff as i leave for the philippines. there's a group of 4 adults going on the trip, though they'd been hoping for some youth. however, we're going again in a few weeks, so this will be a good chance to scout some things out i suppose. you can pray for me, that i can have a good attitude for the next 5 days. as i've not had one to this point!
