As I’m writing this blog, I’m watching The Guardian. It’s a movie about rescue swimmer and the challenges they face as they brave the elements to pull one drowning soul at a time in from hungry arctic waters. Though the waters around the Philippines are far from Arctic, the analogy still holds. The reason I am here as a missionary in the Philippines is because there are lost people here and their time is running out. Every rescue swimmer needs a helicopter crew above him to hold the line and help him pull out those who are looking for help. The crew is invaluable. Without them, the swimmer would never make it into the water and never make it out. I want to thank you for being that crew. Thank you for enabling me to live here in the heart of Asia and minister in this open missions field. I hope this site is an encouragement for you as you see the work that you are engaged in and the lives that you are saving.
