Summer Time

I haven't been able to update my blogs since we came here in Texas because I've been preoccupied with other things. I am glad I got the chance to update it now. I would try my very best to post here more often so my readers would have something new to read here every time they come and visit.

It's the month of June and summer 2012 officially started yesterday. The weather is still okay and it hasn't hit 100s yet. It is in the 80s and 90s in Texas and I'm glad because the past years, I heard this time of year was already in the 100s. This is the reason that I dread the summer in Texas. It's too hot for my bones. Even though I came from a tropical country, summer in Texas is way hotter than in the Philippines. So when I bought our tickets in coming here, I wanted to be out of Texas before the end of June. But here we are, we had to extend our stay here as per request of our new pastor. He wanted us to stay here in our church to be able to reconnect with old members and get to know the new members as well and of course him (our pastor). This is our sending church in the mission field and the only church supporting us. In a way, it's a blessing because it gives us more time to visit some churches and present our ministry. We just pray that God will lead us to those mission-minded churches so we can raise support for our ministry. So far, we had visited 3 churches but nothing positive yet. I don't lose hope. We are doing this for the Lord and I believe He will bless our efforts. We need funds to construct our church building in the Philippines. Our church bought a land but no money yet for the building. If you are reading this and you are being led by the Lord to help our ministry, then just contact me. The Lord will bless you for that.
