This is my first post, so let me give you the run-down. I will be traveling to the Philippines for the Master's work. I will be flying out on the 20th of May and returning on the 11th of June. While there myself and Brother Danny Weddle (elder at the Washington Ave. coC, Evansville, IN) will be assisting the Sunrise Christian College in their labor.
I will primarily be focusing on the agricultural perspective with the school. The only way the school can pay their employees is through their agricultural practices, which are not as efficient as possible. With an agriculture background, I am hoping to help them transform their practices into those that are more sustainable and more yield-bearing.
Aside from that, we will be engaged in Gospel meetings (revivals), as well as vacation Bible school(s). Additionally, we will be assisting in disaster relief after a devastating earthquake. Needless to say this will not be a walk-in-the-park mission trip, but one that, though exciting, will be draining in energy, emotion, and who knows what else! HOWEVER, the draining of these components only makes more room for the spiritual gain in which will be received by doing good work for our Father.
I am more than excited.. and maybe a little anxious. I will try to blog as often as possible while over seas to keep an update on the trip. Please begin your prayers now, and continue to pray while we go. Also, as much as I dislike doing this, if you would like to aid in supporting our work in the Philippines, you can contact me. As you know, the economy is not in the best state, thus our trip is not on the cheap side. Any donation would be greatly appreciated, or if you would like to sponsor a hog, or goat, etc. for the college and students, that would be great as well. The most important thing is that we pray. Please at least contribute words to the Father for our safety and effectiveness, if nothing else.
