Dear Bro. Daniel,
The team has just returned from the Philippines where we finished the third church of the trip, on the island of Bohol. The pastor there is Bro. Joe Cutin. Before we arrived, they had been having a lot of rain which flooded the rivers and turned the roads to 10 inch deep mud. No one wanted to take 11 guys and their tools through about a quarter a mile of mud plus another 5 miles of rutted roads and get stuck. Once again the Lord provided a different hardware store with a large dump truck to deliver all the materials and said that we could ride on top of the materials into the church site. We asked him about transporting us from where we were staying to the church and back out at the end of the day. He said for thirty dollars a day he would do it. The sun came out and this site had the best dirt to dig in, the lightest wood (one brother could lift a truss), and we still got to mix concrete volcanoes. At each church site the local believers jumped in and it was such a joy to work side by side with our brothers and sisters. At each church God also gave us new converts and we baptized 15 people on this trip with another 9 to be baptized by those following our trip.
Bro. Daniel, all of us on the team had such an incredible trip and appreciate the opportunity to go and serve part of the Bride of Christ, and represent the Believers here at home.
Yours in Christ,
A Happy Team of Missionaries
