WHEEEEW!

It’s All
about the
Kids!
 
The things
we do
with these kids now will stay with them for a
lifetime. All
over the world there are poor kids that are abused,
hungry,
homeless and are learning from society every evil
that can
be foisted upon them.
At PBC
these
children are learning that God loves them and we are
showing
them that love because we love them too. We are
teaching
them that moral standards still have a place in this
world.
Ethics is not just a word. Do you know that here in
what may
be the filthiest places in the world we teach them
not to
litter! It sounds incredible but these kids are
learning to
respect others as well as themselves.
We have
accomplished
much in this place and we will accomplish much more
as we
get your continued support.

one time
gift or to establish monthly support:
 
 
 
JOLLIBEE MAKES
SMILES
 
We got an email from 
new friends.

Brother Errol & Sister
Laarmi are missionaries in Mindoro.
They
told me that they had some
friends visiting from the States and that they would
all
like to come to see the dumpsite if that would be
okay. Well
of course it was okay and so they came and brought
with them
200 Jollibee hamburger steak
meals.
So off
we went to distribute them to
the kids at the Dumpsite.
You must
know that the cost of one
meal is probably what their father would earn in one
day. We
passed out the gospel and ministered with the meat
and the
meat of the word.

SETTLING
IN

We are
slowly
settling into the new rental. We were able by the
grace of
God and some generous people, to buy a refrigerator.
We were
able also to put screens on the windows.

The first week there the natives in
the hills decide to burn the hills after the crops
of
whatever they grow were picked. Subsequently,
millions of
these flying bugs swarmed and attacked the village.
They
have a very short life spam so they wound up dead on
the
floors and everywhere else in the house. This
happened
twice. Now you know the priority for screens. We
still do
not have the luxury of sitting on a couch or
sleeping in
beds or even eating at a normal table but there is a
reason
and purpose for everything under heaven and I am
sure to
find out the reason for this
also.

Did
anyone catch
April as it whirled by?
 
We had such an
amazing
month. We started off  broke as usual and asking God

what was going on about the Vacation Bible School
and the
Camp for the Payatas Kids. In all appearances He was
telling
us that it was not going to happen but boy were we
wrong.



100_2791Just
about April 9th or so, I was writing to an old
friend (snail
mail-I still do that once in a while) and I wrote
this:
“This year, unless a miracle happens within a couple
of
weeks, no one will be going to camp. There just
aren?t any
sponsors. ” Six days later, we had raised enough to
send 15
kids and we thought that was wonderful. The
donations kept
coming in even two days after the kids left (We
needed funds
for their return transportation) so much that
instead of
transporting 15 kids in a rickety old Jeepny we
transported
45 kids on a brand new air conditioned bus! Once
again, you
have amazed me as you allowed yourself to be used by
God.
Thank you all so much. You have given some very poor

children some peace in their life.

Vacation Bible
School was
accomplished also as we had 102 registered students.
Each
day God provided for the crafts, supplies and for
feeding
the children. It all culminated at a very joyful
graduation
ceremony on Saturday and afterwards, everyone had
Halo-Halo.

Many children have

professed Jesus as Lord and Savior.

 I have an urgent need
and once again have to turn to our supporters to
fulfill
that need.

My daughter Laura is
homeschooled by my wife. We get the basic books for
free but
extra books, shipping and administration fees we
have to
pay.

Laura needs her
books to be sent to us
.
$50
annual enrollment and $125 administration fee at 50%

discount.

Shipping of the books will
cost at least $108 (that was the price last
year.)

So we basically need about
$300

If you will help out with
this expense please go to:


http://www.payatasmissionoutreach.org/donation.asp

where you can pay by
check,
credit or debit.

Thank you.

PRAY FOR US AS
WE ARE PRAYING FOR
YOU
