Missions Conference Clip

We recently attended a missions conference closer to home and I wanted to simply pass along an idea that was new to me..... The church handed out Faith Promise cards as well as Prayer Promise cards. It is a simple card that says, "in dependence upon the grace of God I will pray", also it has a daily or weekly box to be checked along with lines to insert your missionary/missionaries of choice. The congregation was very receptive to this, and I was joyful and my heart was warmed at this new idea of having Prayer Promise Warriors. Thank you to all who make it possible for missionaries to go labor in the fields that are white with harvest.
We hope these ideas have given Mission Committee members some new and creative possibilities for future conferences.

RTS Graduation

We are thrilled to announce that our son, Chad, will graduate from Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson on May 16, 2008 with a Masters of Divinity. And we are even more thrilled that we are able to be here to witness this grand and exciting occasion. Please praise the Lord with us for Chad's completion of this stage of his journey and also his new position as the Reformed University Fellowship (RUF) Minister at Hinds Community College in Raymond, Mississippi. He will begin at Hinds CC the first of June. Please pray for Chad as he is in the throes of finishing up classes and working on his ordination as well. So, as you can imagine, he is pretty overwhelmed. Pray for God's abundant grace as he attempts to juggle all of these hats. Also, we would love to be able to attend Chad's ordination and installation ceremony before we return to the Philippines. Please pray with us that God will make this possible.
Thank you so much for caring enough to pray for and with us.
