This past week, our boys and Stephen went to OE, also known as “Outdoor Education”. Every year Faith Academy, a school in Manila for missionary kids, hosts OE. This is an opportunity for 6th-9th graders to get out of the classroom and go outside. OE brings together a great combination of spiritual emphasis, ministry opportunity, teamwork, and a little bit of education. This year the original plan was to host OE at Taal Volcano, which erupted on January 12. The teachers at Faith Academy quickly came up with a plan B, and then health concerns and restrictions disrupted plan B due to the coronavirus. In the end, Faith Academy was still able to host OE and over 150 international students were still able to gather together for this event.
What do our boys have to say about OE?
“Outdoor Ed was a fun and neat experience. My favorite part was the worship time and spending time with my friends.” Luke
“Outdoor Ed was one of the best experiences I’ve had because I was able to spend time with other MK’s and with God.” Jonathan
We are so grateful that our boys were able to have this wonderful opportunity, to grow both in their faith and with friends.
