OBI- July 18- Fun Facts about the OBI team!

While we sit in Taiwan for our 5 hour layover we thought we would give you all the opportunity to get to know our team better! Each of these “Fun Facts” are facts that have come as a result of our time in the Philippines. We hope you enjoy some laughter and smiles just as we have in the airport while writing this!

Michael- He thought he was Ati when he played the Ati men in basketball, but his skills would show otherwise!

Kate- She conquered her fears of airplane bathrooms today just in time before our 13 hour flight- Praise the Lord!

Rachel- She might say she is bad at playing cards, but when it really comes down to playing the game she wins by a landslide each time!

Anne- She thinks she is a quite creative, but when you stop and look at the coloring pages she has colored they might prove otherwise! (We think she might be color blind!)

Cari- She conquered each of the fears that she entered this trip with. Those include traveling out of the country, jumping into a waterfall, and swinging off a rope swing! (This is only one among the many fun facts about Cari- please ask TK for the rest!)

Nate- He has found his new calling in life as a professional “Selfie” taker! And the girls truly appreciate this talent when trying to take a team picture in the airplane.

Josh- He never sleeps but always seems to be tired. This is one that we have not figured out yet, but maybe in the next 20 hours we will!

Jade- She charmed the Filipino people with her intentional stupidity and clumsiness.

 

Thank you for your continued prayers! We will depart Taiwan at 8:40 pm and will be on our way to LAX!!!!!! I will make sure to update the blog once everyone is picked up or at their gate for our flight home.
