Christmas 2006

It is never too early to start planning for Christmas. We will be Stateside for Daniel's first Christmas. We will leave the Philippines on November 12. We will spend the first part of our vacation in Florida, enjoying Thanksgiving with my Mom, plus we feel that Florida weather will help us transition from the tropical heat of the Philippines to Winter in the States. We plan to be in Maryland around the end of November. When our plans become more firm, we will let you all know. We will return home to the Philippines at the end of January of 2007.


A followup on this post about God's timing. Here the child is now, doing much better, no more neck problems. Praise the Lord for prayer.

Happy Birthday Faithy

Today Faithy is 6 years old. It is hard to believe. When we first arrived here in the Philippines, Eric was 6, and Faithy was just 4. She started her day opening presents. Later we went out to dinner at the place of her choice, Pancake House. It is similar to Denny's in America. Happy Birthday Faithy!

God's Timing

In this picture you see fellow missionary Jimmy Capone praying for a child who lives in Calajunan, the city dump site of Iloilo. The young boy had a severe neck injury from an accident. He could not hold his neck up without help. Jimmy and the team prayed for this child for complete and total healing. We prayed and prayed asking God to heal this little one, and make his neck straight. We had to leave, but with heavy hearts since the child still had neck problems and was very listless. We left wondering why does God not heal instantly like He did in the Bible? Whe does He withhold His blessing? The seeds of prayer for healing were planted in this child's life, and now they have come to harvest. He is totally healed. He even came to Saturday's Kid's church at the Center. He is active, smiling, no more neck problems, totally healed. His father also recently accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and savior, he is now born again. God's purposes are greater than ours
Life in the Philippines can be pretty loud. Because of the hot weather and our lack of central AC, we keep our windows open pretty much all day. Fortunately Daniel has been able to sleep through all the noise. We decided we were not going to tip toe around him when he slept--creating a zone of silence around him, making everyone whisper or observe strict silence. Even with all the noise, he sleeps through it all pretty good. The brothers.

My Brother

First we had my buddy Jason and his family here during the first part of July, then we had the return of Jessica, then we had a team from Christ Community Worship Center church here for two weeks, then we had our third child, Daniel. It was a very busy July. The CCWC team was lead by Jimmy and Beth Capone. Jimmy is a true brother. They cam last summer for a short-term trip. This summer they brought a team from their church, including their daughters, Natalie and Julianna (Eric and Faith loved seeing their dear friends again). Jimmy and Beth are also Daniel's Godparents, and I am so blessed they were able to see their Godson while they were in-country. Jimmy--I am blessed to count you as a true brother and co-labor with you in Christ's vineyard. You are a steadfast source of encouragement and blessing. Thank you so much for once again coming to the other side of the world. You are a missionary to me. Dave
