January 2015   Greetings and Happy New Year from Negros Island! It was a very fast and furious time during the holiday season, here in the Philippines. The Island of Negros was the host of an annual youth event called YACC! This was the 41st year for the event.   Each year, it moves to a different island location or province. In 2014, it was hosted by the churches on Negros and was held on a large public school campus. Over 70 churches participated and the attendance was almost 800 people….read more

A classroom/ parsonage is being built first so that the workers have a place to stay during the construction of the church. The septic tank and walls…read more

January 28, 2014   Greetings in Christ, It has been a busy five months since Mary and I arrived back in the states last September. We enjoyed so much visiting our family, friends and churches. We were thrilled to meet our grandson Luke, who had been born while we were in the Philippines and then getting re-acquainted with our first grandson, Caleb Smith. It was so hard to tell them good bye this week as well as to our kids again. We are presently in Colorado visiting Mary’s sister, Sharon…read more

We are enjoying being home again in the USA! It is hard to get used to the prices of things again. Also, to driving with rules, lanes, and a speed limit. We enjoy so much worshiping again with everything in English, padded seats and being with so many friends. We have met our new grandson and got reacquainted with Lydia and Josh’s son, Caleb. Being grandparents has been so much fun during our first month here. While on our USA furlough, we will be visiting many churches and hope to…read more
