Furlough…Ready or not Here We Come!

Preparing to jump through the wardrobe

From one world

And One way of life….To another

Yep it is that time again.  We are heading back to Portland in July.  Our first term we felt like it took forever until our furlough came, but this time around we can’t believe that it is already here.  We look forward to stepping through the wardrobe into our other world, but we aren’t as in need of rest and healing as we were the last time we ...

Sports Bible Camp was Amazing…written by our granddaughter, Rebekah Jordan!

Grandma Becky & Rebekah

Sports Camp was amazing! The team arrived safely here on Wednesday night. While they were here, they were able to participate in church, Youth Group, and a Believers’ Tuesday Night Bible Study. They also witnessed six believers’ baptism, and helped with the Sports Bible Camp. To experience some of the culture, they did a scavenger hunt in a local market, learned the basics of the Tagalog language, and participated in an “Amazing Race.”

Believers’ ...

I Will Never Forget This Lady

Posted by:

 

I look at the picture of this lady just about every morning. What a hard harsh life she has lived. The look on her face and her eyes are almost haunting.

I remember as we left her remote village thinking she will probably never hear the Gospel in her lifetime.

So sad. And there are millions of people like her. Different look, different language, different culture – but alike in that they have never heard the Gospel. Many like her live in ...

More Waiting…

Posted by:

“Waiting on God requires the willingness to bear uncertainty, to carry within oneself the unanswered question, lifting the heart to God about it whenever it intrudes upon one’s thoughts.”

― Elisabeth Elliot

Ah, yes. Waiting. Elisabeth Elliot said it well, having seen some of her deepest fears come to reality during her time on this earth. Yet she also found the secret of waiting, the key component for experiencing pain with joy, and uncertainty with hope. The secret is releasing our fears, ...

Bible Time with Olympic Flag

Bible Time with Olympic Flag

These three words are a glimpse of the emotions we have experienced this past week during our third annual Sports Bible Camp.  Each morning for four days, more than 70 teenagers as players, 18 Agutaynen believers as coaches, and 8 Americans visiting from the States as helpers, gathered together for a time of studying the Bible and building on their skills in volleyball and basketball.

HOME AGAIN! It doesn’t seem possible that we have been home from our 5 month visit in the Philippines for 3 months already! Bob was quite sick again with Tropical Sprue when we arrived home. After 5 months in the tropics with his history of having this tropical disease, we were not really surprised! But he has been through the required antibiotic treatment and is back to 100%…….well, for an old man of 75! During these past weeks of recuperation ...

CHRISTMAS IN CAMBODIA!!

We are writing to you from Cambodia where we are enjoying the Christmas holidays with our daughter and family. Believe it or not, we are enjoying just a bit of “cold” weather….cold for Cambodia, that is. Yesterday was in the 60’s – as we shivered and enjoyed our hot cocoa, tea and/or coffee, it seemed quite December-ish!

We trust you are enjoying time with family and friends as we all remember WHY we celebrate Christmas, that the Babe in ...

October 2013 Update

Posted by:

Greetings from Alabama! Here’s a short update to let you know that we will be flying out of Houston bound for Asia on November 29th . Why Houston? Because that’s the hub of the airline that gave us the best price. And it’s a double blessing as it gives us the opportunity to spend a couple of days with Judy’s younger sister who lives in that area and we can leave our car in her driveway! We’ll appreciate your prayers ...

We’re in the middle of summer here in Alabama, with its heat and humidity……and downpours!  Almost like still being back in the Philippines at the beginning of rainy season!  But we’re not in the Philippines….we’ve been home now for several months……
