January ’19 Update

Off to the Philippines

Tina and I are now prepared for our first trip of 2019 to the Northern part of the Philippines, in the region of Luzon. We will be spending one week in Baguio City and one week in the Manila area.

 Your prayers would be greatly appreciated as we both will be very busy. I will be doing training in expository preaching and preaching myself (at least 9 messages are currently on the schedule). Tina will also be teaching the ladies at the marriage conferences as well as a group of pastors’ wives. I have included our itinerary so that you can know how to pray for us each day.

Thank You from Gideon Manda

This month I also had the opportunity to meet with a dear brother from Malawi, Gideon Manda. He serves as Dean of Students on the faculty at the Central African Preach Academy (CAPA) where I go to teach each year. The Lord has provided him the opportunity to take the Doctor of Ministry program at The Master’s Seminary (the same one that I recently completed). While he was here, he recorded this for TMAI. Please keep him in your prayers.

Specific Prayer Requests

  • Pray for health and safety during our travels.
  • Pray that God would use the training to equip the pastors to be more faithful shepherds of the flock.
  • Pray that Tina and I would teach God’s word accurately and clearly to the couples at the conference and banquet to strengthen their marriages.
  • Pray for Brie while we are gone — transportation and taking care of herself.
  • Also, please keep praying for God to bring in the remaining support that we need. We are still short of the goal by about $1200/month.
