Met with Pastor Chris Hayes of Spirit Life Church in Ocala, Florida. It was a blessed time to meet with a pastor of a church that is truly missions minded. Judging from the outreaches of their church and also the travels of their senior pastor, Dr. Richard Perinchief, they have a true passion for missions. My life long friend, Jason Branch (we have known each other since we were six) and his family goes to that church. They will be visiting us in Iloilo in July. We are hoping that their trip will be a forerunning trip for the eventual coming of a team from Spirit Life. I also went to their midweek service. Pastor Chris spoke a very blessed message on life's tests.

This morning I met with Pastor Russ Rutler, we enjoyed a down home country breakfast at Bob Evans. Pastor Russ was recently in the Philippines teaching in Bible schools. We met through email and it was great to meet in person.

It is always a blessing to meet with and share stories with people who have a heart and passion for missions and the world harvest.
