The Little Princess @ Faith Academy

Tonight I attended the Spring theater production at Faith Academy outside Manila. Kelly Chesnut mentioned that their daughter (and son) were to be in the production and I think I invited myself to come and see.

That turned into lunch at TGIFriday's at the Galleria (near the church were BSF was) and then the journey out to the school for a carpool pick up before hanging out at their house for a few hours.

Those of you who know me well know that this was just about a perfect day for me -- a great way to spend an "extra day" in Manila. I'm so grateful for John and Kelly's WARM hospitality.

So, not only was it fun to see their son David playing the part of a "Child in London" but also their daughter, Melissa (on the right) in the role of Miss Amelia. She played along side Miss Minchin (on the left), portrayed by Alyssa Hause.

Come to find out that Alyssa is the granddaughter of someone I know - Aretta Loving. So fun!

  1. Hi Ruth, Enjoy your blog--especially liked hearing that you had an extra visit to Faith for a "performance". That's one of the things we miss most about no longer being in Manila--the Faith Academy productions and the family. However it was our choice to go to South Asia so we could "make room" in SILP for those with families that can appreciate a great school for their kids!
