Prayers for Brother Peter

I was happy to visit one of our college students, Peter, this month! His heart’s desire is to pastor a church one day on the island of Bohol.  For now, he is praying for God’s direction and interning under another pastor in that area. After seeing him in Bohol, I am so blessed by his spirit. Life in the ministry is not easy, but he is facing these challenges with a smile. Please pray for him! Pray that he would continue to grow and learn and not become discouraged. Pray that the Lord would direct him and use him to reach the lost in Bohol!

Pastor’s Conference 2018

We were blessed to host a Pastor’s Conference this month! A Canadian and a Filipino pastor partnered together to give us 186 boxes full of Bibles, tracts, and reading materials to distribute to local pastors here in Cebu. It was such a joy to see these faithful preachers receive their Bibles and tracts! One thing that is lacking here in the Philippines is good quality reading materials and tracts so these gifts were a special blessing!  After a day full of preaching and fellowship I can certainly say, it was good to be at the Lord’s house!  Our hearts are full, we are so thankful for these materials and the people who supplied them!

Graduating Class of 2017

Our friends from Malaspacua Island have been a blessing! After Typhoon Haiyan, God brought our churches together and developed a friendship. Since that time, we have enjoyed teaching some of their members at Bible College. These ladies have applied themselves to learning; from teaching children’s classes to playing the piano!  Now, we are happy to send them back to their home church so (hopefully :) ) they can be a blessing to their pastor!  We pray that they continue to be teachable and allow God to work in their lives!

Another Birthday!

On September 28, Elizabeth celebrated another birthday! I am so thankful to be married to this sweet lady. I truly couldn’t do what I do without her. I feel like she has sacrificed so much to be a missionary’s wife but it’s something she has done with a smile.  It was not easy for her to learn another language; it took a lot of work but now she enjoys teaching a kids class in Cebuano and English! I thank the Lord for my wife and her willingness to serve! Happy birthday, sweetheart!
