Finishing Well

What a great few weeks we have had here in Tanauan! We could not be more grateful for the amount of people praying for us and our ministry in the Philippines.

At orientation, all three of us prayed that the Lord would break our hearts for these people and He has definitely answered that prayer. This week, all of our hearts have been broken for the people in this area after we leave. It is going to be hard to leave the relationships that we have gotten so close to, but it is going to be even harder to leave the relationships with people that have not yet accepted the Lord.

We are all asking our friends and family to pray that more people will come to Tanauan to continue the ministry. At the beginning of the summer we thought that two months was a lot of time. We have quickly realized that it is not when you are ministering to an unreached people group. There is still SO much work to be done and we realize that we may not be able to reap what we have sown.

How you can pray for us: 
1. Physical and mental strength the finish the rest of the summer.
2. Clarity on our Christian responsibility here after our two months is up.
3. The training of the new believers and their continual motivation to spread the gospel to their friends and family.
