We took a group of our faithful children on a special trip. Filipinos possess a great spirit of adventure; they love going places they’ve never been before! So as a reward, we took these kids to a park on top of Cebu’s newest mall.  Our trip did have some unwanted adventure. On the way to the mall, our jeepney blew a tire! When the tire blew, my heart sank and I wondered if we would be able to get the kids to our destination. Thankfully, we were able to find a safe place to park and swap the tire with a spare. Because we were able to pull over and replace the tire so quickly, we still had plenty of time to take the children to the park. When we finally made it, the smiles were everywhere!  Truly, safety is from the Lord! I’m thankful we were able to take the children on this outing with only a minor detour!

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!

We were blessed to hear from home this week! A young man from our route asked the Lord to save his soul! Andrew is a young father that has attended church with his family for a few years now. His wife was saved and baptized last year so it has been such a blessing to see this family come to Christ.  This is what it’s all about folks! Keep inviting people to church, keep reaching out to the world and let Christ work in their hearts. You never know who is listening! 

Rescue the perishing, duty demands it; Strength for thy labor the Lord will provide; Back to the narrow way patiently win them; Tell the poor wand’rer a Savior has died.”

It was one of those mornings…we had traveled several hours the day before and arrived at our hotel late. The kids were full of energy and I was doing my best to keep up. :) The three of us finished our breakfast at the hotel and started to leave when a lady approached us. She told me it had been a treat to watch the kids enjoy their breakfast. She then asked where we were from and I told her we were missionaries to the Philippines.  She smiled, “Thank you so much for what you do! We’re Baptists and we love how God is using missionaries around the world!” I took the kids back to our room and realized that I completely forgot to get Chris his breakfast! I ran back downstairs, a little flustered. This time the lady’s husband approached me. He said, “Are you and your husband missionaries?” I smiled, “Yes, sir.” He reached for my hand and gave me a one hundred dollar bill. I stood there in shock. I didn’t know these people. We weren’t even in church! This was a morning I was just trying to survive. My eyes teared up as I thanked this couple for being a blessing!  Here I was in a hotel in Texas when the Lord brought this dear couple across my path. God let me know I was on His mind, even when I wasn’t expecting it.
