A Pelawan Camp Meeting

Hi friends,
I just wanted to update you all on what has been going on up in the mountains as well as in the lowlands of Palawan.
One thing that I was happy to experience was a visit to the village of Emrang, about a 2 hour hike from where I live in the mountains. The people who live there are so eager to learn about God. It was a good experience to be able to visit them and hopefully keep them thinking in the direction of God.
This last week has been campmeeting in the lowlands. All of we staff came down from the mountains on Sunday and then all our guests arrived on Tuesday. The whole experience has been a blessing to me and it is neat to see the Pelawan church members growing in their faith as well as people expressing interest in baptism.
There was a baptism on Sabbath in the ocean and then that evening we enjoyed footwashing and communion together under the moon and stars with all our brothers and sisters. People gave testimonies afterward and it was heart-touching to hear their love and thankfulness to God in their voices.
I have been growing close to my family here in Palawan. It is wonderful to think of the day when we will all meet together dut langit! (in heaven).
