A Visit From Our Family


It was a blessing to be able to have our family here in the Philippines. Michele, who last visited the Philippines in 2009, stayed with us for five weeks, and our mom and dad, who came to the Philippines for the first time, stayed with us for two weeks. It was great to spend time with them and we are glad that they got a chance to experience and help in our ministry over here. They helped with our Bible studies, church services, youth group, choir, church maintenance, and so much more. We even got to visit some historical places (a bonus to the history teacher side of dad)! All in all it was a wonderful time together which seemed to go by way too fast.

Family Sunday









We had an exciting Sunday service yesterday. It was our Family Sunday and we had 32 families attend our church service. It was especially nice to have my mom, dad, and sister with us from the States. Both children's choir and adult choir sang special songs about the family and the sermon was also themed toward the family. After our service was finished, we celebrated with a potluck dinner for everyone who attended. We enjoyed the food and fellowship and we also took family pictures. Everyone had a wonderful time and we're thankful that God blessed our Family Sunday.

Brief Update

Typhoon season is officially here. Two days ago typhoon Basyang came through and did some damage. The newspaper said that 23 people died as a result of the typhoon. Thankfully, the only major thing we experienced were the power outages. We were without power for around 30 hours before it finally got restored and we were without water for around 12 hours . Apparently at one time, 90% of the 13 million residence in Manila were without power as well. Please continue to keep us in your prayers as the Philippines averages around 20 typhoons per year.

Also, this Sunday we are having our Family Sunday, we would appreciate your prayers for our services.

God Bless,
