Goals – we all have them!
It is the last day of our comprehension checking of 43 Psalms. It is another goal reached during our visit this year. The Higaunon will now have the book of Joshua and Psalms 1-43 that they can sit down and read for themselves in their own language! Thank you for praying! Read the rest of this entry »

Greetings from the Philippines. In our last update we asked for prayer for our trip here. Thank you for praying for us. We had a safe, uneventful trip… up to the other day.
Laura came down with a bad cold and I thought I had a thorn or something embedded in my foot. So, off to see the doctor… Laura’s cold is just that, a virus, that hopefully will be gone within another week. What I thought was embedded in my foot turned out to be shingles! I guess if there is a “good place” to have shingles it’s in the foot. The doctor prescribed some antiviral medication and after scrapping ourselves up off the floor when the pharmacist told us the price, we made our purchase and so far, praise the Lord, the symptoms have not gotten any worse. I’m thankful that it isn’t painful, just a bit of discomfort.
We postponed our flight into the village twice due to our illnesses and needing rest, but we are preparing to fly tomorrow, Friday! Please continue to pray for us as we settle into “village life” again and as Lance gets to work on the initial checking of 1 & 2 Kings. Ron and Michelle will be going to town to attend to some medical things as well as take a break. Once they are back, we will be working on Joshua.
No, we cannot do this but certainly God can! Matthew 19:26 “…with God all things are possible.” And one of our favorite verses Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” Thank you for partnering with us!
Secure in Christ alone,
Lance & Laura
One week from today, the Lord willing, will find us on a plane heading to the Philippines. According to the schedule, it will be 23 hours from start to finish with 2 stops in between. We will spend two days in Manila and then head south to our the island we live on.
Thank you for praying for us! We are so thankful for a safe road trip to visit our son and grandson in Oklahoma , as well as other family in North Texas . We had a warning about low oil pressure a couple of times,but God put us in a place where we could attend to that need and at the same time, gave us an opportunity to witness to a young couple who were hitchhiking. Please pray for Brian and Christina to come to know Jesus as their Savior!
We thank all those who gave to the typhoon relief efforts in the Philippines. There is good news regarding opportunities for getting the Gospel to some of those places. Isn’t it amazing how God takes a tragedy and brings good and Glory for Himself from it?! Praise Him with us for what He has done and is going to do in the Philippines!

We are looking forward to our return next month to the Philippines. Click here to watch a short video of a flight into our village and a glimpse of our coworkers, Ron & Michelle Jennings and some of the village kids.
Thank you for partnering with us through prayer and finances. God bless each of you!
Secure in His love,
Lance & Laura

Greetings in that most precious Name above all names! Jesus! The One whose birth we celebrate.
And the angel said unto them, “Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:10,11
pray without ceasing,
in everything give thanks;
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
As this week is our American Thanksgiving holiday, our thoughts turn to all who partner with us in the ministry to the Higaunon people of the Philippines, as well as others we minister to. We are truly thankful for each one who prays for us and for those who also support the ministry financially. We could not do what we do without you!
