Our Journey in the Philippines

After great anticipation, the time for our survey trip finally arrived.  We spent our first two weeks in Cebu with Brother Lewis and his family.  During this time we were able to see the ministry firsthand.  We are excited about what God is going to do!  Our many questions were answered and because of this trip, we now have clear direction on what our part will be there in the ministry.  We are looking forward to the day when we return.  While we were in Cebu the church hosted a Hearts Day activity for the teenagers.  They had over a hundred teens attend and 90% of them were first timers.  Elizabeth led three young ladies to the Lord and many others also received Christ.  Please pray they will continue to go to the church and grow!

For our final two weeks, we went to Manila to visit my mother.  This was the first time Elizabeth and my mother had ever met.  It was wonderful to see her after two years.  Praise the Lord, she is faithfully attending church with my sister, brother, and his wife.  It was exciting to see how they have grown in Christ since my last visit. Please pray that my other family members will also be saved.

This survey trip was a great blessing to Elizabeth and I.  Unfortunately, while we were in Cebu two funerals occurred that directly affected the church.  It was a sad reminder of why the Lord wants us in the Philippines.  We hope to return quickly and do what we know is God’s will for our lives.

January was an exciting month for us!  Elizabeth and I were in our first official missions conference together as husband and wife.  The meeting took place in Broad Top Pennsylvania, with Pastor O’Bryon and New Hope Baptist Church.  It was a wonderful conference to start out together.  The fellowship was sweet and the church was a great blessing to us.   I was able to preach Sunday night and present our burden for Cebu, Philippines. We look forward to our future meetings, serving the Lord together!

Praise Him!  We picked up two more supporting churches!  Pastor Suttle of Spring City Baptist Church in Cleveland, Virginia and Pastor Nutt of Lake Erie Baptist Church in Brocton, New York.  With these new churches we are now up to 28% of our support.  Also pray for a couple of churches that have talked to us concerning support.  May the Lord’s will be done.

Please continue to pray for our survey trip to the Philippines coming up this January 28, 2010-February 27, 2010.  We are looking forward to it!

Please pray for me as I book meetings for this coming year and that God would lead us to the right places.

Snow Camp!

After Christmas we headed off to camp with our church teens.  What an awesome three days!  We braved the cold and the activities to try to make an impact on these young lives.  There was one particular young man, Anthony, we had been praying for to get saved.  He had just started coming to our church and up to that point had never heard the gospel.  This is sadly becoming the case for more and more teens in our country.  Anthony was a foster child with a very rough background but praise the Lord, he received Christ as his personal Savior on the very last night of camp.  Since that time he has changed drastically and faithfully attends our church.  He’s been a great encouragement to us.  Please continue to pray for him as he still has many obstacles to overcome.
