Boggle Time

Caleb's two friends Jimmy and Kevin (yes more and more Vietnamese kids are adopting English names here) come each Saturday morning to play.  Here they are enjoying a game of Boggle for the first time and are doing well.  They are both among the top students in this city who can speak English fluently.

The work continues

Our employment with ELIC has ended officially on April 30, 2012.  How ironic it falls on the same day as "Reunification Day" in Vietnam.  However the work goes on.  We had a blessed time with our old teammates as well as old students as we gather in both Hai Phong and Dalat.  Here are some more pictures of our time together.  Blessed be His name!

Here are some pictures from our Spring semester. More to come on our recent gathering with old students and teammates in Hai Phong. Stay tuned.
