First Baptism in Karusuan!

After many months, the twin engine airplane is finally up and running again and we are back “home” again in north Luzon for a few short weeks! It’s really great to be home after 8 months! We really don’t mind traveling all the time and God has provided many “homes” for us, but it’s always [...]

Planting In Drought

It’s been a few months since we came to Palawan to work on some maintenance of the aircraft. It seems the pace here is always somewhat more intense with so much going on. My main purpose down here has been to get the twin back up and flying, but the progress has been slow for [...]

Walk By Faith

The amazing thing about a faith ministry is that you're stepping into the Red Sea every month. We have been learning to walk by faith and not by sight. Each month is a new adventure and faith building experience. Though the expenses continue to grow, with fuel and maintenance costs, more missionaries and church plants, [...]

The last four months have been action packed and extremely busy with flying and other projects in Palawan. Sean and Pris got back the end of July and that helped alleviate some of the flying load. We spent a couple more weeks in August at our base in Palawan with Sean and Pris before [...]

Charms, Strings, and Witchcraft

Wendy Harris
We ducked our heads into the small, bamboo hut and saw a young girl curled up in a dark corner on a raised, bamboo bench seat. *Amy is only 18 years old, newly married and 2 months pregnant. She recently moved to a depressed village near our airbase in Palawan. We got a full [...]

A Helicopter for Palawan

We’ve always said that when God provided a helicopter it would be the biggest miracle yet. It would leave no room for doubt that there is a very powerful God who is able to provide for His work!
For more than 3 years we prayed for a helicopter to serve the people and missionaries of Palawan [...]

Shattered Leg on the Mountain

Just last week we received the news of yet another amazing story. This time it was Elias, the new (and first ever) SM doctor at the Kemantian clinic. He and some others were on their way to the church and school in Kensuli, across the river. He slipped on the bridge and his cleats caught [...]

OB Emergency (Lali’s life saved again)

I expected the worst, but was still amazed by what I saw. Lali's husband, Buba and another friend trudged down the trail covered in sweat and mud with Lali in a hammock on a pole. Lali was white as a sheet and in and out of consciousness. Another girl, Bapa, with muddy and tattered clothes, [...]
