Mission Accomplished - Stay lag

Praise God from whom all blessings flow. Our mission trip to the Philippines was successful.  We were welcomed warmly by all who attended and we will be forever changed.  Here are some pictures from our last day of ministry.

needed to resolve conflict
Here are two of the pastors who came to the mike to ask questions after our teaching today. The questions were good and thoughtful and based on life situations that came to light as we taught.

At the end of the day, Rannie asked if anyone wanted to share a testimony of what the Lord had done in their lives this past week. We were humbled beyond words as many came up to share what teachings God had used in their lives.  One Pastors Wife came to testify that she had repented because for the past two years she has had a bitter spirit and had been a bad wife who nagged and criticized her husband.  They have reconciled and are talking and now have the tools necessary to resolve the conflicts they have had.  God is so faithful. Several of the men shared how they had realized that they had not known how to love their wives before the seminar but now knew how to do this. One young woman who is a newlywed said the teaching on being her husbands helper was life changing and she will now be able to stand along side of him as a real helper in life.  We ended this time praying for all of them and then they prayed for us.

This is a group photo taken with us and part of our class. We are live on skype in this photo.
We had a wonderful time and Rannie said it felt like we were right there on site with them this week.

Rannie, thank you for making us feel so much apart of the ministry in your country. We treasure your friendship and look forward to the day that God will allow us to come in person to meet you and spend time with you.

We are suffering from stay - lag today that is like jet lag but since we never left home we made up this word to describe how we feel.   I guess staying up until 4 each day has taken its toll.. :<)))).  

Thank you to all of you who prayed and helped in any way with this "trip".  Thank you especially to our church family, Chardon Christian Fellowship who has allowed us to take the time off to do this ministry.  We love you and appreciate you more than you will ever know.

Much love,
PW and Sherry

Awesome. I am so thankful for you guys, thinking the impact you're having in our lives and ministry. I bet the skype conference was a blessing to the people there and looking at the picture I see saints of God. Brothers and sisters in the Lord that will use the resources and will multiply what they've heard and see and will be a blessing to their ends.
God bless you pastor Wayne and Sherry! May God give you rest, peace and joy unspeakable!

So exciting to hear all that God is doing in the lives of these dear brothers and sisters in Christ. I know this time was a tremendous blessing to you both as well! Rest up! We'll see you Sunday. :)
