So much has happened, so let me give you our family’s update.
What we did:
Since September of 2019, I have been working on my Master’s degree and thesis while Michaella has been finishing up high school. When COVID hit in 2020, the pastor of our Filipino church resigned. Since then, I have been an interim pastor. Furthermore, with YWAM Richmond we have been actively reaching our neighbors (around 3000 homes), going door to door, giving people masks, Bibles, and the opportunity to know Jesus Christ! Plus, we ran different training schools and seminars. Also, I have been teaching in Discipleship Training Schools via Zoom and in person in the States. Let us not forget Haydee and I have been mentoring others in Asia and the States through Zoom and calls.
What we are doing:
I finished my Master’s degree, and Michaella finished high school and will be attending Liberty University this fall. We are still pastoring our small church and are seeing people come back in person and some growth. I will be teaching in the DTS in Myrtle Beach this November. Also, I have been writing some articles for YWAM explaining cross-cultural applications of our values. Moreover, we are preparing for a Trilingual DTS in February!
What we are dreaming:
I am praying that more doors will open to travel again. I could not accept some international teaching opportunities due to COVID travel restrictions. I am hoping we can travel more in the future. Also, I have been invited to join staff in the next Team-Based Communication Master’s degree program for the University of the Nations. We will run an online seminar in March of 2022 and start the two-year track in September of 2022.
As you know, the only way we can do what we are doing is through financial gifts. With inflation, we require more support. Will you support us monthly? You can do this by clicking here. Thank you for your generosity. We are so grateful for your partnering with us.
In His service,
