Update from the Philippines

I had the pleasure of spending several days with Jason and Andrea and their five boys, and can testify that there is rarely a dull moment. Jason’s primary ministry is Middle School Chaplain and Bible Teacher at Faith Academy.

His passion for ministry is contagious and I often think of his enthusiastic statement:

“I can’t believe that I get to do this for a living!”

Since the students of Faith Academy are primarily MKs we might assume that evangelistic opportunities are limited. That’s not the case, as already this year several of Jason’s students have professed Christ as their Saviour for the first time!

Many activities fill their days: language learning, home-schooling, building friendships with locals and other expats as well as the day-to-day challenges faced by living in the Philippines. Pray for this family as they adjust to a new life and ministry.
