Last night at church (Mt. Zion Baptist Church, Brogue, PA) Pastor Chris asked for the people of our church to surround us for prayer as we prepare to fly out in a couple of weeks to return to the Philippines. We are excited about our return. There are many things that are strained and difficult (such as the various mandates and protocols and even potential lockdowns). We are not sure about what the future has in store for us when we get there, but we also have so much to look forward to - the mission of re-establishing our work in Tuktukan, Taguig City, plus the potential of starting another work elsewhere. God is so good to us to call us into the ministry - we just ask that you would continue to pray with and for us that we may please the Lord in all things, glorify Him, proclaim Jesus Christ, and go on for the Lord as a family and as your missionaries! The photo above may be a tad bit "grainy" but we were in the middle, surrounded by our church family, and Dr. Starr (Grandpa Starr) leading in prayer over us. We claim the truth of Ephesians 1:22 "And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church," and so, we as a church, directly to the head of the church - the LORD and Saviour Jesus Christ. We prayed to God for safety, for the opening up of the country, and His blessings as we make our way back on Monday, July 25 with an arrival time in Manila on Wed., July 27th. Thank you also to all of our friends and family for your love and prayers, as well!
