Earlier today my mind went to SM Lockridge’s message, “It’s Friday but Sunday’s coming” – what a marvelous thing to know that our sin […]
Translation: Another annual trip to the Philippines to work on checking scripture is coming to a close. This is the 6th year we’ve returned to our village to check the translation Lance worked on while at home in the US. Between our return to the US in May of 2017 and our return to the […]

Take a look at this picture. The Higaunon living in this village used to live in fear! They used to live in bondage, worshiping their ancestors and sacrificing pigs and chickens to appease the spirits. Today, the Higaunon are no longer living in fear.

At the seminar, the church leaders are discussing church planting strategy. Before they left, they showed us a map of where they are in relation to […]
This recent trip was our third time back to the Philippines since our transition to the US and working on Old Testament translation from “home.” Two of those trips were paid for with miles! We are grateful to the Lord and to those who gave miles!

Less than a week from our arrival in country and we arrived in the village we have called home since 1983. Praise God for an absolutely wonderful trip. Everything went smoothly and we know it was because so many people were praying! Thank you!
