Philip got his Filipino passport! So young to be a world traveler but that’s the life of a missionary kid! :) Now that he has all his Filipino documents in order our next step will be to submit the paperwork for his American citizenship. Abigail and Micah are already dual citizens and that has been a huge blessing! It eliminates a lot of hassle with visas and other requirements for staying in the country. Please pray for his papers to be processed quickly and efficiently.
Our hearts are full as God continues to open doors into the public schools. Another high school is allowing us to teach a Values Class every Tuesday! We taught for the first time this week and the response from the students was great. Some of the teens had visited our church years ago as children and were happy to see us again. Please pray that God would use this ministry to bring more teens to Him! Also, continue to pray that we could teach at the high school next to our church. We are still waiting for final approval from the principal.
The Lord gave us a victory on Sunday! Poppa Timario came to church! And he brought the other two men from our Bible Study with their wives. It was a blessing to see them all there for the first time! Again, they heard the Gospel. Please pray that they would make the decision to trust Christ as their Lord and personal Saviour!
Sunday was extra special for our family. For weeks now, Abbie has been praying for her friend (our neighbor’s little girl) to come to church! Sometimes life gets busy and our children’s desires take a back seat to everything else that is happening. But Abigail kept praying and asking her friend to come to church. One day she said, “Mom, my friend wants to come with us on Sunday!” So that afternoon Abbie and I talked to her friend’s parents. The mother grinned, “Yes, your daughter has been asking me for weeks if my kids can come.” My heart was so full! I’m so thankful for my little girl and her desire to bring people to church. I pray she never loses that desire! Sunday came and we were so blessed to have Abbie’s friend and her sister come to our services! I thank the Lord for answering my baby’s prayers and growing her faith!
