Our First Year!

This week we celebrated our first year of being in Cebu!  Time went by so fast as we planted ourselves in the ministry and in our new home.  During this time we started a new route that expanded with both children and adults.  Several have been saved and some even baptized!  For those of you who know we need a vehicle for the route please keep praying that the funds would come in to cover the cost.  So far we have received almost thirty percent of our goal.  The expense of a vehicle in Cebu shocked me but the Lord has continued to provide for our needs.  Also, I have taught in the public schools with Pastor Walter.  Through this ministry we have seen teenagers come to church and hear the gospel.  Many have even trusted in Christ alone as their Savior!  God is not done saving souls! Our family expanded this year too with the birth of our son, Micah Christopher!  We had this little one in a third world country but had a good experience. The Philippines may be lacking in some areas but their medical field has a taking many steps forward.  I can’t list everything we did this year but to sum it up-God has been good!  We had such a great first year in Cebu and look forward to serving the Lord here for many many more years to come.

    Pastor Chris & Elizabeth,
    Happy Easter to All of you!!!! A whole year on the field- God Bless you all!!!
    Love the family pictures- Abigail is getting so big and Micah is a blessing from God too. We think and pray for you. Wednesday Pastor Seth asked what happened one year ago??? You went to the mission field. You knew it and your Mom knew it, but the rest of us were clueless. It seems only yesterday you were there. You guys are a blessing to all of us.
    In Christ’s Love, HE LIVES!!!!
