Pomp and Circumstances ;)

Week 2 in the Philippines has come to a close. This week held many long hours of choir practice and preparations for the first ever New Beginnings Baptist College graduation! Here are a few pictures of the event!

Congratulations Graduate Batch 2008 (That’s how they say it in the Philippines!)

The graduates, Bro. Chris and Mrs. Amy, and …us

We brought Jonathan’s tux from Christa’s wedding…it just barely fit! I guess he’s growing.


This week (Monday through Wednesday) we will be recording the New Beginnings college choir for the CD that we’ve been working on. Pray for God’s goodness and grace and that He would be glorified in it! He has worked out so many impossible details…we stand amazed at what He has done. The students have also worked extremely hard and put their whole hearts into it. We can’t wait to hear the finished product!

Here are some pictures of the college choir




Here’s a final picture of Jonathan…we can’t get enough of him!


Love and hugs!
Aaron, Laura and Jonathan
