One week and one day

8 days and counting. 8 days and we will be here.

Metro Manila.

What a privilege to have the opportunity to travel the world spreading God's message of eternal life. There is a whole world that is in need of the gospel message and I feel so very blessed to be one of those who is taking it to them.

We have a great team going. A team that is ready to take Manila for the Lord. And maybe have some fun and a few adventures along the way. We also have a great support system. For us personally we have family and friends that have supported us financially and through prayer for which we are eternally thankful. We also have a church body that has been and will continue to lift us up in prayer while we are away. Again, we are so thankful.

It doesn't seem like it should be happening yet. We have been talking about this trip for two and a half years. Two and a half years. Never quite thinking that it would become a reality. The Philippines. Are you kidding. That's halfway around the world. So much farther than I have ever been. But not too far for God. Not too far for His hand to reach. Not too far for this servant to go. He has made a way. And soon we will be going.

8 days and counting.

You'll love it over there. We have some of our friends who you will be ministering with. The Eberts are so awesome. Let them know we said hey while you are there. They have some of the funniest kids ever! We'll keep you all in our prayers.

Have so much fun!
