Ministry Update 10/2/15

I have had a great couple of weeks. Our family spent a week on our annual vacation in the mountains of Tennessee and my what a joy that was for us! We enjoyed each others company, played games, watched a movie and basically just relaxed a lot.

Now that our vacation is over, it’s back to work time and I have been busy as usual. I spent Monday-Wednesday of this week preaching in a missions conference in Susan Moore, AL and the Lord sure did bless. Each night the church was full and there were good responses to the messages. I’m praying for God to call several new Christian workers as a result!

We’re leaving on Tuesday

Myself and Pastor Todd Crusenberry will be flying out on Tuesday evening headed to the Philippines. I am super excited to be going back to spend some much needed time with our staff and partners. Please be in prayer for our travels as it is a very long way with multiple flights.

We’ll be returning in about two weeks. I for one am anxious to reconnect with our friends and the many children and adults who are involved in our ministry. So much progress has been made in the last four months that there will be a lot of new things for me to see.

Fall Fundraising Campaign is underway!

Yesterday marked the beginning of our 2015 Fall Fundraising Campaign. This is our biggest fundraiser of the year and it runs through December 31st. We are expecting God to do great things throughout the next 90 days and I hope you will join in with us by praying and giving.

My family gave our first gift yesterday by simply using our debit card on the website (that’s the easiest way for me). I am glad that I can be confident enough to give financially to what we are doing in the Lord’s work. We don’t only want to be workers in this ministry, we want to be supporters also.

God has already supplied a tremendous amount. I’m going to keep you updated every week with the progress so that you can follow along and pray specifically for the remaining amount. Will you help me bathe this campaign in prayer? I believe if we will simply ask God, he will supply what we need.

With that in mind, here is how much has come in so far: $2,849.70

We are praising the Lord that we are well on our way to raising our goal of $40,000 by the end of the year.

This week in the Philippines

Pastor Ner and our staff have been working diligently in the Philippines to minister to the children who live on the streets. They are still visiting three nights per week and also operating the new emergency shelter three nights per week.

Here are a few pictures they have recently sent me:

In conclusion

Thank you very much for your prayers and support as we continue to make a difference day in and day out. Please don’t forget to pray for our trip and to pray for the success of the Fall Fundraising Campaign. We are expecting great things!
