Change of summer plans and Weiss news

Hello everyone.  We would like to inform you that our summer plans will be changing, as will our longterm plans.  We’ll be returning to Canada permanently this summer after this school year.  The decision to leave Singapore has been very recent and we believe the outcome is positive:  Return to Canada; relatives, friends and community, and a beautiful country. The decision to return home is not based on any health issues!  At...

First time to India- it is Amazing!

Greetings everyone – I have just come back from India as part of our school’s program. Our school sent out 7 different teams to 7 different countries around Asia with our entire high school. Our group went to the southern part of India where we worked with a ministry outside of Chennai. Our group worked alongside the Shalom staff and life trainees as we worked their water conservation projects to help capture rain water to...

So great to visit the Great White North!

Well it was a bit of a whirlwind but I did manage to see some of you in a short period of time as I was enroute to the NICS (Network of International Christian Schools) leadership meetings and teacher recruiting fair in Memphis. Thank-you so much for taking the time- I really appreciate you all so much. I felt very fortunate to see Julia’s last couple of regular season volleyball games in person. I know I said it already but I...

Happy CNY!

Happy CNY everyone! Now that I know what that acronym stands for! Up until last week I didn’t really take stock of the “CNY” (Chinese Lunar New Year) acronym. In a conversation with a teacher at our school here at ICS, he mentioned something in passing about ‘CNY’ and I had to ask what he was referring to. I understand now. During this week I have also been trying to glean information from other staff members about what Chinese...

Oh the rain….

During the past month or so we have really felt the rainy season here in Singapore. The rains come down warm, furious, and usually for a short thunderstorm like intensity. About a week ago I went through such a storm while coming home from work on bike. I recalled it below. Just as I was leaving school, the heavens opened up and the most intense rain began. I usually take a bike home from school and if it rains, I hold my umbrella in...

Happy New Year Everyone!

As we headed back to school for the second semester at the beginning of January- we certainly felt ready to start the new 2018 year. Now that we have got our little medical issues out of the way- we are raring to go. During the Christmas break, we enjoyed having our girls with us and everyone spending Christmas Eve and Day in a Singaporean hospital is certainly going to be one of the memorable Christmases on the list. The girls all...

Merry Christmas from Singapore Hospital?

Well it is not how we planned it but we all spent Christmas together at the hospital here in Singapore. If you read my previous post, I was dealing with a Staph infection in my right leg and well… it has lead me to stay in the hospital for 4 days and counting. After starting with it a week ago Friday (doctors think it was some kind of insect bite during the night)- after a progression of drugs from oral, to injection- it became...

Christmas Break has begun!

We are feeling really excited to start Christmas Break this weekend. Julia and Steph arrived on Thursday and it has been such a great feeling to have everyone together again. We haven’t been together for over a year- so we are not taking it for granted! I have been caught smiling regularly as I hear all three of the girls laughing when something catches their fancy! Each daughter has always had a unique laugh- it hasn’t...

Holiday Inn Weiss is Open!

I have been meaning to post this and am just getting around to it now! We have had a number of visitors in the past month or so. The most recent has been Beth and Rose Klassen (Abbotsford) and a couple of ladies from Cambodia (Bori and Sreymon) passing through. The four of them were on a Malaysia-Singapore tour for a week or so.  As Les and I just got back from a rained out free concert in the park on a Saturday night – I saw a...

Clarification and Accurate Information: I am doing well.

Hi all.  Lesley here.  Thanks for your prayers, if you received the last update post.  I do want to clarify and take the panic out of the post.  I am just fine, and everything is ok. I did have an in-office, hospital procedure yesterday, to drain a badly infected (not to mention large, ugly and very painful) abscess in the armpit area.  What started out as what seemed like a pimple or a small boil about a week ago, just got...
