Another sign of our approaching departure: A Row of Boxes! Today we shipped out 9 boxes that will travel via sea cargo to Haven of Grace Seminary in Pulupandan, Philippines. The journey for these boxes (if all goes well) should take 6-8 weeks, so we should receive this shipment a month or so after we arrive.
LBC Express is a Philippine-based shipping company, and we were able to drop off our boxes at this small Filipino grocery store in North Philadelphia (just 10 miles from my parents’ house). While there we met family and learned that the husband was originally from Iloilo (a city on the island just to the west of Negros). They were believers, and the wife said, “Thank you for going to minister to our people.” That was an encouragement to hear. We passed along our prayer card to them, and are grateful for more prayer support gained along the way!
