As you know we are planning to visit the States in October. We have not been back in America for 5 years. We have received some gifts which has allowed us to process our kids needed paperwork for their passports and some housing and vehicles to use while we are there. But we are a long way off when it comes to airfare. We still need over $6500.
Please pray about giving a one time gift for our travel.
Just email us and click here on how to give.
Haydee and I spent most of last Wednesday in the building pictured working on getting our children's Recognition of Philippine citizenship. For those who remember this is now required for our children to renew their Philippine Passports. After a lot of running around this building, getting photo copies, notarization, and making payment of P39,150 (USD$910) we made a big step on getting their needed documents! Haydee and the kids will be going back on Monday for hearing and figure printing. But after that we should be able to move onward to renew their passports!
As a family we have not traveled internationally for more than a year. For us that is a big change. We are hoping that when I go to staff the DTS Equip in Cambodia in August that Haydee and the kids can join me for 3 weeks. Please pray that we can have their passports by then!
It was my first time to teach in Phuket, but it still felt like home! I knew most of the staff and enjoyed being back in Thailand.
It was a great weeks of teaching on Relationships in the Justice DTS in Phuket. I believe the students got a lot out of the teaching and I was happy to be apart of it.
After flying back to the Philippines for a week I then flew to a country who some people consider "closed" (If you would like to know just email me and ask). What is amazing is training people in a situation that does require some extra security measures to run a DTS. What is more encouraging is seeing YWAM grow in this country.
I taught on Intercession and the leadership gave good feedback. God's heart is for the nations and so our intercession should be there also!
Next week I will be flying to Ubon Ratchathani in Eastern Thailand in the Lao Focused DTS on Hearing God's Voice. Please keep the students in your prayers while I am there. Also pray for Haydee and the kids as I travel once again.
