For what seems like a lot of years,we trained in the US to become missionaries.
Then, for the last three years---we have had the awesome opportunity to live in the Philippines, studying language, culture, and learning to minister to the people here.
And, for the second time in three years, we completed our language and culture requirements, and now we have a new job---helping new missionaries as they go through many of the same things we have experienced.
This whole time---many of you have prayed for us, supported us, and encouraged us. Some of you have given us advice, opened your homes to us, and others have kept in touch on Facebook, email, and (gasp) even snail mail. :)
As overseas missionaries, we are often reminded of how important our team of supporters, encouragers and prayer partners are. We hope that all of you that have partnered with us in some way realize that!
Today, we are looking forward to our new ministry here, which is helping new missionaries survive, thrive and learn languge and culture, and get them ready for tribal ministry.
To all of you around the world who are making this possible, we just want to say THANK YOU!
We truly thank God for all of you.
