We had a great time seeing a friend from one of our supporting churches! Brother Bill came to Cebu last week and joined our Sunday services. He was a blessing, participating in all the different ministries that go on during Sunday. He even played with the teens!  Imagine their surprise!  And he taught them a song! Though our time together was short, we enjoyed the fun and fellowship. We appreciate visits from our friends in the US and look forward to the next time!

Dee Dee & The ChildrenOur time with our guests went fast! We spent 12 days, showing them the ministry and the beautiful island we now call home. During their travels they went with us  into the public schools! The children inside listened attentively and kids outside were pressed against the windows, trying to see what was going on!  They also took part in street preaching. Because English is a second language for many, they were able to witness and tell people about Christ!  On the weekend, they jumped into our children’s ministries and helped with Backyard Bible School. This is one of our favorite ministries where we bring Sunday School to the children; singing songs, memorizing verses, and teaching Bible stories.  Though our time was short, it was such a blessing to have them here! They truly refreshed and encouraged our souls! We miss them already!

We have visitors! Elizabeth’s brother, Daniel, is back with two friends from Grace Baptist Church.  Their visit will be brief (around 12 days) but full of ministry work!  We are so thankful for this opportunity to show them firsthand, the ministry God has called us to. Aside from that, we are also looking forward to spending time together and savoring these special moments.  We thank the Lord for His blessings.

Grandparents collageWe have been given a wonderful blessing! My wife’s parents came all the way to Cebu to see me! While I am sure they are very pleased to see their (wonderful) son-in-law I know they are really excited to see Elizabeth and the kiddos. Skype has been a great tool for us to keep in contact with our loved ones and it blesses my heart to know that Abbie and Micah will know their family members living in the States. The kids are not scared of my in-laws; they know who they are because of Skype. I thank the Lord for this little blessing. There are times Elizabeth and I get frustrated with our slow internet but overall we know we are supremely blessed. There was a time when being a missionary meant that you were completely cut off from your loved ones-it was a blessing to receive a letter every six months! So we thank the Lord for our families and the internet that has kept us connected.  We are savoring these precious few weeks with my in-laws and the conversations that are never interrupted by poor internet reception! :)
