Thank you so much for your prayers! We are still working on getting the paperwork in order for our visas, but seem to be on the right track. God has been faithful to answer your prayers in strengthening our prayer lives and in teaching us about Filipino culture. We spent an evening at a Filipino festival enjoying music and trying new foods. One woman we met even spoke the language that we will be learning once we get to the Philippines and had been to the area we are going to.
Time has gone by very quickly as we are over halfway through our time of orientation! This next week we will be going to New York City to meet people from all over the world and tell them about the Bible and who Jesus is. Please pray for us that we will be bold in sharing the gospel and that people would be willing to hear and believe it.
Also, please pray that we will finish our last few weeks of orientation well. We would be thrilled to hop on a plane tomorrow but we know that there is still much for us to learn here!
