Several months ago, Jean and RaIMG_4646lph, came to our church looking for a place to set their roots and start their family. This Christian couple had found our church by sheer happenstance…they had discovered our home church’s website.  They enjoyed listening to Pastor Kohl’s sermons and even went through his marriage counseling on audio.  It was during this time that they realized that Faith Bible Baptist Church in Eden, NY had sent a missionary to Cebu, Philippines, the same island where they lived. After contacting me they asked for directions and visited our church.   They have been faithful ever since!  I was amazed when they started talking to me about my pastor-they knew his testimony of salvation and other details about his life. I laughed and said, “Are you sure you have never been to our church?” As their wedding date drew near we went through marriage counseling and enjoyed getting to know them more and more. When the big day finally came…I didn’t know who was more nervous-them or ME! I performed my first wedding and enjoyed celebrating the creation of a new family. I am so thankful that God guided this couple to us. He is the only one who could have brought us all together. We are so thankful for His blessings as we serve Him in Cebu!

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.

Chris and Elizabeth

Chris and Elizabeth

The Lord has been very good to me in giving me so many blessings that I do not deserve. One particular blessing that He has given me is the opportunity to develop a friendship with a wonderful godly young lady.  She is Pastor Keith Troyer’s daughter her name is Elizabeth. We met each other at  the Bible Camp that Pastor Krohn directs. We have known each other for about six years now through the camp and other various church events. We started to email each other regularly last December with permission from her dad. Then with much prayer and counseling I decided to ask her to court me officially on April 15, 2009. The fifteenth of April will not be a bad day after all since she said,… YES!!! Then after more prayer and counseling I arranged to propose to her during  Junior Camp in Butler, PA. After a moment of shock, she resoundingly said, … YES!!! We are officially engaged to be married on November 28, 2009 at the Grace of Calvary Baptist Church, Erie, PA.
