UPDATE # 2 FROM THE PHILIPPINES

Hello again from the Philippines. Well the ACTION conference is over. I spoke 5 times over 4 days, and God moved mightily. This was a conference for the missionaries from ACTION that are working here in the Philippines. I had many comments about how much this meant to people. It seemed that Gods timing for this was perfect for many which should not surprise us. I also spend much time counseling with the missionaries, who as one put it, “had not been able to speak to a pastor for two years!” So there was counseling covering a variety of issues that the Lord allowed me to minister to these dear brothers and sisters.

Next will be visiting and speaking to various ministries, a pastors meeting on Friday, a pastoral meeting that afternoon, a youth meeting on Saturday, with Adam Hussey, then speaking at Higher Rock Church on Sunday, this is a great reformed church of about 300-350, then the CGM Pastors conference on Monday, and I am told again the sign up looks great, last year we were over capacity and had over 200 pastors. Tuesday will be with a missionary in the squatter area, the poorest of the poor, then a visit to a factory that one of our missionaries oversees as a way to provide employment to the locals, and then Wed. it will be flying home.

Please be in prayer for us as my next trip will be in May to will be to speak to 40 pastors who live in the much-persecuted area of Orissa. Also as always pray for our financial support, this month has not been great as far as giving, but we know the Lord is in control. To support us see the information below.

Thanks again for all the prayers and financial support.

For His Glory,
Pastor Tom
