We’re back!

While abroad, we enjoyed using the local Filipino mode of transportation: "tricycles."

Praise the Lord! Our family made it back safely from the Philippines this weekendand we have been adjusting back to life in southern California ever since. With the bags unpacked and laundry now done, the only thing left is to get our bodies back on the PST time-zone. (I haven’t made the adjustment quite yet, which is the reason for this early morning post.)

During our trip, we were blessed to stay with a local missionary family, tour much of Manilla, minister to a “shanti” community living under a bridge, attend a local church service, enjoy fellowship with our brothers & sisters in Christ, and teach local pastors about Bible interpretation. It was an experience that deeply touched us, which we pray never to forget.

For those of you who prayed with us for this trip, I just want to encourage you by letting you know that your prayers were answered by our Lord and even felt by us. Our family was blessed with safe travels, good health, and wonderful “divine appointments” all throughout our trip. So, thank you for your faithfulness to intercede for us before the Throne of Grace!


About Elizabeth

I am a sinner, saved by grace striving to increase in the knowledge of my Savior and His precious Word each day. The reader should know that there are a few presuppositions with which I approach this blog: 1) I believe in the biblical gospel, which basically purports that all mankind is born under the curse of sin (due to the sin of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden). Therefore, man is separated from God and can have no relationship with God because He is perfectly holy, not even able to look upon sin. Unfortunately, God is also perfectly just and must not only separate Himself from sin, but must also punish it. In order to reconcile man to Himself, God, the Father, sent God, the Son, down to earth to live as a man and take our sins upon Himself on the cross. While on the cross, God, the Son, bore the full weight of the wrath of God, the Father, against our sins in order that we who believe in Him might be set free from the curse of our sin. God, the Son, Jesus Christ, died as a propitiation for our sin in order to appease God, the Father's, holy and just character, redeem us from sin, and reconcile those who believe in this gospel to God, the Father. 2) I am primarily writing to those who already believe in this biblical gospel. In other words, this blog is not focused on evangelizing the lost, but edifying believers. 3) I believe that the Christian Bible is the very word of God. Therefore, it is completely inerrant, infallible, sufficient, and authoritative in the life of a believer.
