Romans 15:13 “Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.“ What a wonderful message!
This month has been quite busy.
The first week, Lance continued translating the book of Leviticus.
The second week, we both attended a workshop to learn how to talk with the media during a crisis, which our leadership team in the Philippines asked us to attend. It was very challenging, but also very enjoyable!
The third week started with our helping good friends get to and from the funeral for their father-in-law/dad in Greenville, SC. Now Lance is back to work on translation as well as our least favorite task – PACKING!
Please pray as we leave for the Philippines on the 30th of this month. We have been blessed to live in the church missionary house while in the US. With the prospect that a new pastor might need to use the house, we are packing away our belongings. Please pray for us, as we get ready to leave.
One of the things we are excited about and hope to accomplish over the next 4 months is getting Genesis and Exodus ready for final checking, so it can be officially published for the Higaunon church.
We just received word that the satellite company that we use in the village for email is “down” with problems. This leaves our co-workers without internet communication. The company has ordered a part from outside the country that will be expensive for them, as it has to get through customs. Please pray!
We are very thankful for your partnership with us in prayer and financially.
Secure in Christ’s love,
Lance & Laura
PS – we have been made aware of a need that our daughter has for their ministry. Write us if you’re interested in helping.

THIS NEWS JUST IN: the part for the satellite has arrived in the country … they’re hoping now to be able to fix it by the end of the week.
