Time away...

Hi y'all! I know, it's been awhile. Sorry about that. I love how busy we are with life here but don't love that I don't make the time to check in every week like I wanted to!

Recently we (the Schulz clan) were able to get out of the city for awhile and enjoy some much needed R and R and some beach time! At Christmas time we were blessed with a special gift of money from one of our supporting churches so we were able to spend this much needed time together at a resort about an hour away. We were able to refocus as a family on why God brought us here all the while enjoying God's beautiful creation on this side of the world. This was the first time we were able to enjoy the beach since arriving here in September. Of coarse, as we were planning to go away, a typhoon was scheduled to hit Cebu. We have had those threats before but they always seemed to have missed us. No such luck this time. It hit us head on. It's okay though, we were able to enjoy the beach and the time together despite a little (or A LOT) of rain :)

 Here are a few of our adventures through pictures. Enjoy!! Love you all!

I think the weather report is right. It rained heavy most of the 3 days we were away.

Shell hunting during a small break in the rain.

We found more then shells!! 

Raining gain, trying to stay dry!

It took us both awhile to touch the starfish, Mady was still a little hesitant at this point but warmed right up to it during the week!

The underwater world has some pretty amazing creatures in it!

Relaxing in the SUN! It finally came out on our last day. We were so grateful for that blessing!

  1. Wow, all the new sights and sounds and BEAUTY! Thanks so much for sharing, it really it so appreciated. And, what a blessing it is to see the "sun". We have blue skies and the "sun" this morning, in place of very dreary and foggy days. Thank you, Jesus.
