Thank You, God!

Today was the last day for me to teach English at our English school for this year!

Thank You, God, for giving me the strength for helping and teaching at the school!

My brother Jeremy’s last day for helping at the school was yesterday, Wednesday!

Thank You, God, for helping him, too!

Tomorrow is going to be the last day for teaching English this year. Dad is going by himself tomorrow, Friday.

Thank You, God, for helping Dad in his many English classes this year, and please help us in our English school next year, too, in 2019! In Jesus’ Name, Amen!

The J&J Christmas Concerts

My brother, Jeremy, and I played Christmas songs for our English students. Our first day of Christmas concerts was on Thursday, December 13th. Jay played the ukulele and I played the guitar.

We played five songs for each class. Here are some YouTube samples…

{ J&J Christmas medley – 3 songs }

Song No. 1 – “Silent Night

The first song in the medley was “Silent Night”. Here’s one by Il Divo.

Song No. 2 – “Joy to the World”

The second song was “Joy to the World”.  Here’s one by Acappella.

Song No. 3 – “El Santa Pasa” (“El Condor Pasa”)

And the third song of our medley was “El Santa Pasa”. We changed the title of “El Condor Pasa”, a South American song, to make it into a “Christmas song”. 🙂 “The Santa Passes”… get it? Here’s one I found on YouTube performed with saxophones by the Christmas Band!

{ Sing-alongs }

Song No 4. – “We Wish You A Merry Christmas”

We also played some easy songs that the students can sing along with. We sang “We Wish You A Merry Christmas” together! Here’s Mr. Munson playing the song on the guitar (with lyrics).

Song No. 5 – “Jingle Bells”

And the last song we played and sang was “Jingle Bells“! This is a ukulele performance by Hoang Luu.


We are going to play these 5 songs on Friday, Saturday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, too!

We also want the students to learn the true meaning of Christmas – the birth of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
