We would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of your who have been a part of our family in some way this year. Whether through visits, phone calls, prayers, donations or all of the above - we appreciate the support and love we have behind our family.
The girls continue to do well in homeschooling. It gives us time as a family together during the day when every evening is filled with dance, choir and soccer! All 3 girls take piano lessons - Eva and Naomi both recently took their ABRSM theory exam for Grade 1 in which they received a Merit (Eva) and a Distinction (Naomi). We are so proud of them!
Charlotte continues to enjoy her school. She is quite the little one, I often suggest that two full pages of Math for each day is more than enough. :) She also enjoys arts and crafts, baking and playing with her animals.
Naomi has continued to take violin lessons over Skype which has been a challenge in itself with the Belize wifi quality - but she enjoys it and is playing Silent Night for our Christmas Eve church service.
This year has been a year of opportunities for us. John has taken several sports trips to assist and help bring some structure to a global sports ministry initiative, something he is loves and is energized by. For those who have followed the YWAM Boyz football team (soccer) - that John and Santi coach. In their U 13 Christmas cup competition, they played 9 games and won 7 games zero goals against them, first final game we won 3-2...our boys score 41 goals and three against them...we won most goals, Allen score 11 goals...best goal keeper Amare Jones...we tied last game of finals - we went into penalty and lost first place with one goal against us. They had won 5 championships in a row and came away feeling that it was good for others to experience the joy of winning.. Great job YWAM Boyz!
The dance studio has continued to grow as we have a visiting teacher - Kelsea MacKenzie with us! She is amazing and our students adore her. Many know of the unfortunate eye infection that removed her from Belize for the month of November. She is BACK! We praise God that she is well and recovering. Thank you to all who prayed for her!
We also did our annual Dance Revolution trip in November. It was an amazing time for our girls who went - We had 5 from our studio go and 2 other former students who met us there! The girls had dance from morning until evening in the styles ballet, jazz, contemporary, hip hop, tribal funk and musical theatre. I love seeing our Belize girls get exposed to all of these styles as we don't have all those opportunities here (yet :) )
A big thank you to all who donated and gave towards our fundraising efforts!
Again, thank you to all of our partners and supporters for a GREAT YEAR! We would love to hear from you. Feel free to write, call or visit!
Love The Georges
John, Patti, Evangeline, Naomi and Charlotte
