Trip to La Paz

Philharmonic Orchestra

Trip to La Paz (see pictures)

Katarina’s former classmate, Nataly (from Discovery), came to Honduras for a visit right as school was starting here.  One night Katarina slept over and traveled with Nataly and her family to St. Joseph’s Orphanage in La Paz.  It’s amazing what a little love will do!  They took some great pictures while there. 

Philharmonic Orchestra (see pictures)

Discovery Choir never ceases to amaze me.  For a girl whose dream is to be a singer, God is certainly providing ‘more than enough’ opportunities for Katarina!  The Choir was invited to sing with the Philharmonic Orchestra of Honduras joined with a few extra players from the Philharmonic of Central America (players from Costa Rica, Guatemala, and El Salvador) and the Philharmonic Choir. 

     Discovery school sang in:

  • Danza Magia Y Ritual (Los Mayas) by Jorge Gustavo Mejia and
  • Carmina Burana by Carl Orff
     This created a busy two first weeks of school with rehearsals daily.  All the hard work paid off because the performances were amazing.  I actually missed my violin and asked how someone can be part of the orchestra (answer:  audition), but the orchestra travels each month to different locations within the country for performances and I don’t even know their rehearsal schedule.  Plus, I’d have to learn all my orchestral terms in Spanish! 

School Year 2012-2013 (see pictures)

School begins early here.  Kjell returned on August 2nd and the kids on August 9th.  A parent put up a banner, put together gift bags of chocolates, and had a cake for choir members showing and celebrating their achievement of 3rd place in the international choral competition.  The choir has been asked to sing with the Philharmonic Orchestra of Honduras in a couple of weeks.

     For this coming year, please pray for:

  • Easy transition into the new school year (Kjell as a teacher, our children as students)
  • Peace and joy for our children as they make new friends (some of the kid’s friends moved back to their ‘home’ or onto another country and there are new students too)
  • Opportunities to share the gospel to friends, students, colleagues, staff, parents of students, etc.
  • Favor (Kjell with administration, school board and committees, colleagues, staff, parents, etc. and our children with their teachers)
