9 Years of Successful Ministry
Nine years ago we arrived here in the Philippines.
Everything here was so different than home. We were not quite sure
how we would start our ministry. We decided than that God would have to
do everything as we were not qualified for any of this.
I read somewhere that God never calls the qualified but qualifies
the called. He has certainly done that in our case. The scriptures that
have always impressed me are:
1Co 1:27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to
confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to
confound the things which are mighty;
1Co 1:28 And base things of the world, and things which are
despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to
nought things that are:
1Co 1:29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.
I glory in the fact that nine years ago God brought us here and He
qualified us. He used us to confound those who were against us and
despite our foolishness, allowed us to be part of a fantastic ministry.

When I first came to the Philippines I had no heart for missions.
My heart was set on marrying Malou..God had given me a heart for her and
she was the focus of all my attention.
However after being here for a short time, God showed me the
children on the garbage trucks, walking the roads with sacks and begging
in the streets. It was at this time He told me I was coming back to be a
missionary and He gave me another heart which beat for the Filipino
people. 17 years of loving my wife and the Filipino people. What a
Still being Good Stewards
We finished the drain lines and cementing the walkway on the side of the building. The
We fixed our leaky kitchen roof
and now we have started on replacing the bathroom
bathroom had a leak and so new pvc pipes were put on the outside of the
walls and it just looked terrible. It is hard to keep the old tiles
clean, the toilet tank is in poor condition and so we started jack
hammering the floor to put new pipes in and everyone is on it together. A
little each week and before you know it we will be showing photos.
One of our Pioneers will be baptized tomorrow!
Yes, our very own Maria Christina Plaza aka “Tin Tin”
has asked Jesus to forgive and save her. She is 9 years old and is looking forward to her Baptism tomorrow
Along with “Tin” we have, Elenamaye Agngaray Aguite,12, the daughter of our own Pastor Bobby and he will be baptising his daughter. What a blessing.
