God is faithful and always seeks our good.
A dear supporter sent a package of Italian delicacies.

I went to town eating, Sopresata, Genoa Salami, Real Provolone,
Mozzarella, and a bunch more. It was a taste from the past!

Our good friends up in Canada bought 500 pounds of rice for our feeding program and another dear friend upped their support another $20 toward the feeding program each month.

We received surprize donations from some friends.

Another supporter gave us a box of clothes that supplied the entire Church. She also gave us a violin.

Another supporter gave us quite a few things including a wonderful Olympus Camera!


As we mentioned, our bathroom was falling apart. There had been a
leak and so the landlord installed pipes on the outside of he walls to
connect the fixtures. There were broken tiles and a floor that never
seemed clean so we prayed and God led us to build the best CR (comfort
room) in Payatas.
It took a few months to do it so we were able to pay little by
little. A bathroom like this in the U.S. would have been about $15,000.
It cost us around $1,000!

My Laura did the painting that you see. The window has since been
replaced by a exhaust fan and we have installed a Chrome, push button
soap dispenser.

October, for me is a bit sad. It was my Father’s birthday and his
and Mom’s anniversary. It was the month my late wife went to glory and
it reminds me of my sister passing way too soon.

However I am encouraged by these words:
Mar 10:28  Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee.
Mar 10:29  And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you,
There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or
father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the
Mar 10:30  But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time,
houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands,
with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.

When we came here we gave so much stuff away never to see it or
the people who received it, again. Every object of our past was gone.
All was left were memories. Good and bad.

Yet it also makes me happy. That we were willing to forsake all to serve God and we haven’t been disappointed yet.

We do it in silence as we see on FaceBook things like, Share this
if you think teachers are the best-or nurses-or veterans but I have
never seen one that speaks about those who left it all.

That does not mean you need to be a missionary but it does beg the
question, when you received Christ as your Saviour, did you leave it
all ?

Or are the priorities in your life have only to do with self pleasing?

Do you wake up in the morning realizing that God is there with
you? Do you greet Him and study His word and pray or do you wait untill
the evening and fall asleep while doing so?

Do you inquire of God how you might serve Him each day? How you
might make a difference? What kind of legacy you will leave behind?

As the time draws nearer I do not cease to think of my life in
Christ. It is my main focus. It is what fills my heart and makes me

I have never regretted leaving it all behind.

Flanked by my two Associate Pastors,(Pastor Ben left Pastor Bong Right) ,
we are all grateful for our wonderful Church.


what a wonderful feeling to have the little ones show their love in song.

Although I am a bit embarrassed by it, it is such a blessing to
hear all the adults get up and with tears on their faces, give account
for what this Church and their Pastors mean to them. Thank you Lord.


Please pray for our annual Christmas celebration for 100 poor kids in Payatas Dec.12th

We never cease to pray for all of you. Our home Church and the
people there, Our friends and family around the world and our dear
supporters who love this ministry and what it does and sacrifice to give
the best they are able.I will never say it is your doing that we
survive because we both know it is God. I will say is has been a gift
from God that He has used you to supply our need. Over the years we have
lost and gained supporters. The sad part was not the loss of money (we
are still here) but when we lost contact with them as friends. We have  a
love for our supporters. There are some who have not even made
themselves known to us but we still share that bond and pray for them.
