I will boast in the Lord

We have so much to give God praise for. He continues to show his overwhelming faithfulness to us and to the people here. We will boast in him.

Roxas Kids Church
As a part of our work with His Heart, we have the privilege of holding Kids Church at a public school in our community. Every Wednesday, the children gather for praise and worship, teaching, games, Bible memory verses, and a snack. God is on the move changing their lives and hearts.

The number attending has more than doubled in the last two months. The children come from 8 different barangays (village neighborhoods) so it is exciting to plant seeds in new areas and be a part of the transformation of families.

See some of the children praying for a friend in the picture above. :)

We just finished the end of the school year party and His Heart is gearing up for a week of VBS in May. Summer here begins next week and continues until June.

Let it Rain

Last Friday, we had a night of prayer encounter with the teenagers . They moved through different stations, praying for their families, communities, missions around the world, and spending time with Jesus. It was a powerful time. As we worshipped to close, God spoke to Angela to pray for rain. The Philippines has been in a serious drought and we had literally not seen rain in months. Many people are losing their crops and are being forced to move.

We cried out to God for rain in the natural and for spiritual rain to revive the hearts and encourage the people of the Philippines. The teens prayed with such passion and heart. :)

About 10 minutes later as we had finished praising and were having a snack, one of the boys came running into the building. It was raining! I can't explain the excitement and joy on their faces as they saw God work a miracle right before their eyes. They were singing and shouting his praises all the way home that night. :)

We serve a God that is faithful and amazing. He hears the cries of His people.

We pray you will see miracles of God's faithfulness as you invest in "the least of these". Thank you for the countless ways you partner with us. Your labor is not in vain.

Prayer requests:

Safety and wisdom as we travel to VN on April 5th
Anointing on the ministry we will do there
Blessing and provision for His Heart Ministry and the team as we are away

Serving the Best Master,
Paige and Kent
