Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable.  He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength.  Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall,  but those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.
(Isaiah 40:28-31, NKJV)


What an encouragement God’s Word is to us!

Sept 14 updateIsaiah 26:3,4  You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. 4 Trust in the Lord forever, for in Yah, the Lord, is everlasting strength.
(Perfect peace? Everlasting strength? How can you go wrong with that?)

This recent trip was our third time back to the Philippines since our transition to the US and working on Old Testament translation from “home.” Two of those trips were paid for with miles! We are grateful to the Lord and to those who gave miles!

2 Corinthians 4:16-18
16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. 17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, 18 while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

Goals!

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!

looking forward to spending time with these dear people

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
