First Time Together!

I was privileged to be invited to Bible Baptist Church by Pastor Schwartz to present my burden and call to the Philippines. It was a very special meeting since this was the first time Elizabeth was able to join me. I preached during Sunday School and showed my presentation during the Sunday morning service.  After the morning service, I along with the Troyers were invited to join Pastor Schwartz and his family for lunch at their home. Since the Troyers are only about 20 minutes away from the church, Elizabeth and her younger brother Sam were able to stay for the Sunday evening service. Pastor Schwartz made sure that Elizabeth and I did a special together before I preached. They were so nice that they took a special love offering for Elizabeth to help in our upcoming wedding. I had a great time and I cannot wait till we get married and start full time deputation together.

Pastor and Mrs. Troyer along with Elizabeth was able to visit our church, Faith Bible Baptist Church in Eden, NY. Ever since we started courting my home church has wanted to meet Elizabeth and get to know her better. This is the first time my schedule and the Troyers have worked out for us to do that. They were able to come on Saturday and they stayed with us all day Sunday for our services. We had a wonderful time together! My church really enjoyed getting to meet her. Also since they came on Saturday we were able to go to the Erie County Fair. Elizabeth and I were able to participate in passing out several smiley tracts at the Amazing Grace Missions booth that our church partners in spreading the gospel at the fair. This year there were over 150 decisions for Christ. Please pray that they will grow in grace in a local Bible Believing Baptist Church.

Annual Old Time Camp Meeting, Hamburg, NY.

This year I was able to attend a couple of the evenings services at the annual tent meeting that Old Time Baptist Church hosted. I had a good time hearing the Word of God being preached by the Holy Spirit through the different men that spoke. I was challenged to redeem the time and to keep keeping on. I looked at some of the seasoned preachers and how they have been faithful throughout the years by God’s grace and I know I can be faithful like them if I keep close to my blessed Lord. I was also privileged to have meet Pastor Ed Lorena of San Pedro, Laguna Philippines. The Lord has intrusted him as the undershepherd of a great work. The church that he pastors runs about 3,000 in attendance weekly and is heavily involved in local and worldwide evangelism. I was able to talk to him during some of the meal times and asked him several questions about the Lord’s work in the Philippines. I was blessed to have learned several valuable things that will help me when I get to the Philippines. The Lord is so good to put people in your lives at the time that you need them. Praise His Holy name!

Praise the Lord for giving me another opportunity to be able to help in another vacation Bible school. This time I was able to work with Bro. Tom Geer. He has been a very influential person in my life. It has been a privilege to have worked with him. He really has a heart for the children. God has used him and continues to use him. He was one of the few missionaries that I can remember who came to me when I was a young boy and seriously asked me to pray for the ministry that the Lord has entrusted him with. I have a lot of respect for him. I look forward to working with him again in the future. The theme of the week was children under construction. The children responded really well to the preaching and teaching of God’s Word. I was asked to teach the memory verse of each day to the 3-4th grade boys. I had a good time!
