Thank you E.L.I. supporters and intercessors for making our trip successful. David and I flew to Manila and met up with Jay and Anna Lisa Peach, our missionaries, who live there in Carmona Cavita. The four of us spoke at several pastor and leadership conferences, a few churches and a village outreach. Anna Lisa and I spoke to 168 ladies at a women’s conference, seeing salvations, the infilling of the Holy Spirit and healings.

IMG_0561We flew to the Island of Negos and had two healing festival outreaches in the town of Isabela. We rented nine trucks and filled them up with the indigenous people from the villages in the mountains and sent them home with Jesus and bags of rice. Hundreds came to know the Lord and many experienced miracles and instant healings. A few highlights: A woman that was deaf for 20 years received her healing, a goiter completely dissolved, demonized woman of 10 years got delivered, a lady paralyzed from a stroke was walking again and many with years of pain and breathing problems got healed. Jesus is Alive!

It was a joy seeing my son, David, confidently teaching, preaching and carrying on his father’s legacy. He really stepped up to the plate! The main message our team shared was teaching and encouraging the leaders to preach the simple gospel which is the power of God unto salvation. This message was well received on both islands.

My second message was to encourage the Christians to enter into joy with dancing no matter what the circumstances they are facing. I felt a very strong anointing when I preached this message. Hundreds yielded and entered into the joy of the Lord. We had a Holy Ghost party! I got tested to see if I was going to keep my joy when our van got broken into and my back pack was stolen. By God’s grace I put on the joy of the Lord and kept it there.

In fact, after I filed the police report I decided that I was going to give the devil a black eye. So I went by myself over to the jail and preached the gospel and led the men in a salvation prayer. I just had to get back at the devil for what he did to me.

David stayed behind in the Philippines since he plans on being a full time missionary to these islands. He is adjusting well and has been busy with the Peach family doing many outreaches. I will be returning in October of this year with a team to do additional outreaches in the Philippines.

If you would like to support David on a month to month basis or would like to support our mission’s trip in October you can write a check to ELI and send it to 811 Center St. Oregon City, Oregon 97045. Please be sure to indicate in the memo line if your check is for “David” or “October Trip”. It is recorded in heaven that you are a co-laborer in the work and a co-recipient in the eternal reward when you give and pray to make it all possible.

Thanks again,
