Once again, the Lord has worked in wonderful ways. This Journey has been somewhat "underground", with us having to keep a lower public profile in some locations, due to the political climate. While there is never any danger of our team being directly on harassed, we don't want to make life difficult for our partners once we are gone. As a result, we have needed to assess every village and situation separately. Today, we are in the foothills of the Himalayas. The scenery is stunningly beautiful; at this altitude, the air is clear and cool. As I write this, our team has opened our fourth medical clinic. The atmosphere among those waiting is calm, with people waiting patiently.  Read More

As this remarkable Journey comes to a close, I look back with a deep sense of wonder at all that the Lord accomplished. East Samar is a province of about two million people, mostly in small communities (barangays). Over the past eleven days we have distributed enough water filters for more than 1,400 people. This is especially significant, as there has recently been an outbreak of typhoid fever; the filters will totally eliminate this deadly bacteria from the water. We visited schools, a hospital and prison. Wherever we went, people were healed and saved.   Read More

As you may have seen from reading the various reports from team members, we are having an awesome Journey here in the Philippines. We have been on the island of Samar; it is on the east side of the Philippines. Samar is the second poorest area in the country. They have suffered not only the effects of typhoon Yolana, the super-typhoon that hit in late 2013, but also typhoon Ruby that hit late last year. Ruby was a direct hit, destroying houses, tearing down banana plantations and coconut groves, and destroying rice harvests. The economic impact of Ruby has been devastating.  Read More

As always, each Journey is unique, with its own characteristics, challenges and blessings. After three days, this trip has not been an exception. We are working in a fairly remote part of Samar, an island in the eastern part of the Philippines. It is one of the poorest provinces in the country, and one of the least reached with the Gospel.   Read More

Over the past few weeks, it seems that the Lord has gone out of His way to remind me of something: He has placed eternity into the hearts of everyone (Eccl 3:11). It is so easy to forget the practical implications of this; as a result, we repeatedly slip into a perception of the world around us as being made up of them and us. But Jesus insisted that the Gospel is for everybody, that everyone is invited, and therefore, in God’s eyes, there is only us.   Read More

Three o'clock. The team has ministered to about 300 people so far today at the clinic. Some people have walked for miles. There are still 75 people waiting to see a doctor or nurse. There have been many more seriously ill people today. We have set up a water filter station so they can drink as they wait; in the equatorial heat, dehydration happens quickly. The prayer team has been going for hours, but still they press on, seeing a steady stream of healings and salvations. The medical people keep going hour after hour, prescribing not only medicine, but also prayer. Once again, I am amazed at the cheerfulness and sheer grace with which the team ministers. Each one us themselves a demonstration of Christ’s love.   Read More
