Hello! Welcome to our blog!

If you are reading this, you probably know a little about our upcoming trip to Eastern Samar, Philippines. This blog will be our main form of communication to everyone during our time in the Philippines. Check back here periodically, we will update it as often as possible but internet may not always be available for us. Here are some details about what we'll be doing and experiencing while we are there.

We will be going to minister to the Waray-Waray people who live in remote river villages on the island of Eastern Samar. Our goal will be to evangelize as well as disciple young believers in efforts to grow the church there. We will be in the Philippines by October 1st and for the first three months we will live on the island of Leyte in the city of Tacloban in order to learn the Waray language. We will then move to a town called Dolores in Eastern Samar and begin working there.

Things you can pray for us while we are in preparation to leave:

  • Pray as we prepare to move out of our apartment and say goodbyes to family and friends.
  • We start a 2 month training in Virginia on July 20th. Please pray for that time to be fruitful in our spiritual growth and equip us well for our time in Eastern Samar.
  • Pray for the Waray-Waray people that the gospel would continue to transform hearts and that disciples would be made.
Thank you for visiting our blog! We hope you will be able to follow along us as we journey to the other side of the world!

Joe and Elizabeth
