Letter from Michaella
As you have heard from my dad, last August I started my freshman year at Liberty University. I am majoring in International Relations and studying to be a foreign service officer. At Liberty, I’m also taking several religion classes where I am learning more about the Bible and God. I’m so grateful to be here and experience how God is maturing me as I walk with Him.
God has been so faithful in providing a way for me to be here. Through Him, most of my tuition is covered by grants and academic scholarships. The remaining costs come from my housing and dining plan.
As of now, I need about $4000 to cover the rest of my school year. Would you give toward my tuition? You can do so by clicking here for information. Anything above the $4000 that comes in will be credited toward my tuition next year.
Thank you in advance for your generosity.
Time in Davao
As a family we went to Davao for a few reasons. One major reason was we needed to pick up some of our things (Wedding pictures and other things) that we left in Mindanao.
But we also wanted to see our good friends. Good close friendship is not always easy to find. We are blessed to spend some time with them in Davao.
For the kids, Davao is the city where they had grown up (our two boys were born there). For them it was a walk down memory lane.
The only regret we have is that we didn't stay longer. It is clear we as a family, love Davao and it has a special place in our hearts.
At the end of next month we are heading to Thailand. We also have things left behind there that we need to settle and attend a wedding of friends of ours.
We have a lot of travel in the next few months and your prayers are appreciated.
On July 27 as a family we will drive up to Baguio and I (Dustin) will teach in the Making Disciple Makers (MDM) staff development program. This is a coarse to train our DTS staff and leaders to run better schools. I will be sharing on Identity in Leadership and Crises Management.
August 1 is our Lemuel's Birthday! Turning 8!
Then August 4 to 8 we as a family will be in YWAM Antipolo and I (Dustin) will be teaching on Father Heart of God in their DTS.
On August 9 I will fly to Thailand and teach in the DTS in Chiang Rai on Godly Relationships. The following week I will be teaching in a different DTS on Re-entry.
When I get back a few days latter on August 26 we will fly to Cambodia for the DTS Equip (leaders and staff development for DTS). I will be co-leading the DTS Equip. Haydee and the kids will fly back to the Philippines September 26 but I will stay on until October 18.
Then we are targeting around October 22 to fly to the States! If you would like to give to our travel we would be very grateful. To give CLICK HERE.
Family time at the beach!
Kid's Corner- Lemuel and Justin
We remember when Michaella started reading a lot more on her own she read to Lemuel at times. Now we are seeing Lemuel read to Justin. We enjoy seeing our children reach out to each other and bond in these type of ways.
The joys of being parents!
Kid's Corner - Michaella's Update
In the picture on the side I got 154 "likes" on my Facebook acct. All of those likes and the comments written where directed to how pretty Michaella looked. She is growing up to be a little lady before us.
She has been working hard in her Homeschooling and Ballet class.A couple of weeks ago was one is a full week for her. Busy finishing up all the homeschooling paces and requirements. And on top of that, she has long and extended ballet practices due to a upcoming recital this April. We are very proud of our 11 year old as she grows into the woman of God she is called to be.
Dustin has been serving as a missionary for 24 years. Here is where he places some of his teaching, thoughts, and updates.
