More RFPA books have arrived in the Philippines!

In early August we sent a shipment of books to the Philippines‚ÄĒseven large boxes. Last week we received an email from Sharon Kleyn, wife of missionary Rev. Daniel Kleyn: ‚ÄúWe received the big shipment! I managed to get it all put away in one day and we managed to fit it in our shelves. (It helps that we recently bought two more big shelves.)

Philippines Delegation Update #6

Dear all, We are home! After more than 24 hours of travel, we are safely back in Northwest Iowa. The last few days of our trip were a flurry of activity. On Sunday, we had the privilege of worshiping with the saints in Maranatha PRC where Rev. Kleyn ordinarily preaches every other Sunday. Rev. Kleyn led the first service and preached from Lord's Day 8 on "What We Believe Concerning God." I led the second service and preached from Psalm 91:1-2...

Philippines Delegation Update #4

Dear family,  It's high time I updated you again on what we have been doing. Our Wednesday was bookended by some authentic Filipino experiences. In the morning, we got a taste of Filipino transportation. We caught a trike (basically a motorcycle with a sidecar) to a local wet market. I have my doubts that they envisioned a 6'6'' white male using this means of transportation when it was conceived. My limbs were dangling dangerously in every direction. My weight gave the...

Philippines Delegation Update #3

Dear family (by blood and by faith), After the excitement of Sunday, Monday was a bit quieter here. The morning was spent preparing for some of our other work later in the week, and the rest of the day was spent in the company of the Kleyns. We tagged along on some errands around town, and then took a drive out of Manila into the countryside. The drive served at least two purposes. For one thing, it provided us the opportunity...

Philippines Delegation Update #2

Dear family (by blood and by faith),¬† Today (Sunday) is difficult to put into words. For a while now I've been thinking about how to describe and summarize it, but I'm not sure I can. It was a day of sensory overflow‚ÄĒphysically, emotionally, spiritually. Some of the more physical things are easier to describe, although impossible to express. We were on the road by 6:30 this morning, in order to travel the 2 hours to the PRC of Bulacan. The ride...
