A New Day In The Philippines

This is the view from our window at 6:30 this morning.

We look forward to what this and each new day holds for us during this short term mission work.

Not much to report yet, since this is a rest day for us after 58 hours of travel and having our body clocks turned 13 hours in reverse. The temperature here is in the high 80's with humidity in the 90% range. We will meet this evening with nine of our Filipino members of the joint mission work for prayer and for discussion of the work ahead of us. The mission activities will begin in earnest early tomorrow morning (Thursday evening your time).

For now, it's time to rest for about an hour and then work on temporary repairs for the broken "Moon Boot". I actually found Duct Tape today at Lee Plaza, and we'll do some West Virginia engineering on this thing this afternoon.

Please keep us in your prayers as we work with the local churches and pastors. Pray that we will be a help to them and not a detriment to the work that they so faithfully do year round!
Check in from time to time for updates on this sight.

The pictures brought back a flood of memories for me!! I always thought the sunrises were beautiful from anywhere, Santa Monica or Bethel. The picture at the airport also brought back memories, some good and some not so good. I truly am missing being with you and am very excited for you to begin your work "in ernest" today...God has some great things in store for all of you, I believe! I will be praying for you all and please tell the team and the Filipino hosts and friends that I love them and miss them! God bless you!
