Hi! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!
My name is Olivia Bauman and I am currently serving as a missionary on the Island of Boracay.
This is where I share what God is doing here on Boracay as well as in my life day to day.
I hope you are blessed by what you read here! The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to sent out laborers into HIS harvest. Matt. 9:37-38
Last week the Red Cross held a 5k run to raise money for the Chapter here on Boracay.
I'm not sure who's idea it was to start the race at 5:30am...yep..that's why the pictures are dark hahah :) We had so much fun despite the early hour :)
L-R Shane, Me, Yosef, CJ and Tom
Smiling even though I was very tired hahah :)
I paced with one of our neighbor boys, Ninoy, here we are pictured in the far right corner after crossing the finish line...Poor Ninoy was beat. He collapsed on the ground and didn't move for a good ten minutes :) He ran a good race!
My co-teacher, Praise, and I.
Praise has been a huge encouragement to me. She is such a blessing in my life.
Xanana working on his math. This little guy has such a special place in my heart :)
Elizer joined our class mid school year. He was really struggling with his English and writing...He has improved so much in the past few months! I am so proud of him!
Peter sharing a secret with me during play time :)
Kylle is just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the out. I love her sweet smile
Xanana and Xinidi keep us guessing who is who every single day haha :) I still can't tell them apart.
I can't believe that school will be finishing up within two months!!!!
The past week has been so exciting for me- The children finished up their testing and each child did so good!!! It was exciting to see that all of our hard work is paying off :)
Thank you for your prayers and your support!!! love you all!
