During this time of Thanksgiving, I want to thank the Lord and share my appreciation for all the partners God has provided for His work among the Agutaynens. Prior to our former partners, the Zimmermann Family, return to their homeland, we decided not to ask the mission for another missionary family to join us. Our desire was that the believers themselves would become our partners as we move toward equipping them. And God has done that.
We are so thankful for Gerry and Boboy, who are faithful church leaders and proclaim the Word of God every week in Sunday Worship and Youth Group.
We are thankful for their wives, Lynn and Wenjean, who encourage and support their husbands. We are thankful for the believers who help us develop new teaching materials. We are thankful for the young ladies (Kimberly, Stella, Saysay, Chona, Jessean, Jomela, Pamela, and more) who help lead Kids’ Bible Club.
We are also thankful for Stephen’s parents, Darryl and Becky, who joined us in 2018 to help us with projects, take villagers to the doctor, purchase supplies, cook and provide snacks for Bible Studies, and so much more.
I am thankful for my family.
Ginger works very hard to keep you all updated with hand-made thankful notes, preparing Bible studies for the ladies, assisting me in any way possible, and so much more. Luke and Jonathan lead the music in Youth Group and in Sunday Worship.
And lastly, we are so thankful for you, our prayer and financial partners. As you have just read, God has raised up a team of people for His glory among the Agutaynens and their neighbors. Thank you.
