“We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you,” Colossians 1:3 (ESV)
We have so much to remember and be thankful for this week. When you are thinking of all the ways you have been blessed and for all the important people in your lives, don’t forget to be thankful for and pray for those who are at work around the world living and sharing the gospel. What follows are some recent information from the Emperados in the Philippines and the Welches in Cambodia. We are expecting more later. Thank God for all of our fellow workers in the Gospel. For the elders, Ken D
Becky Emerado posted on Facebook from the Philippines on November 21st: Howdy! Left Calagcalag at 7am, arrived safely at the girls house at 2pm. The drive is about 130 km or 80 miles. Fun curvy mountain roads & LOTS of traffic once you get off the boat in Cebu. Ferry crossing takes about 30 minutes in smooth seas, we just stay in the car with the air conditioner running. Girls will be happy tonight when the y see us. They were already at the BSC when we arrived. I brought chicken spaghetti, oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, mangos, & chocolate banana muffins with me. Richard is traveling to Leyte from Samar today. He should be in Cebu Tuesday. Now need to figure out what we are going to do for Thanksgiving. Might do like last year, and go to a restaurant serving Thanksgiving dinner. It is so hard to cook a big meal in girls little oven.
Becky Emerado posted on Facebook from the Philippines on November 17th: Howdy! At the hardware store in Ayungon trying to check email & change money for Richard. Church planting going well in Catarman, Samar this week with the MOSES team, Tse Ming, and Christians from nearby towns. Talked to Richard last night & he had good news to share. Going to Cebu next week for Thanksgiving & girls birthdays. Richard will meet up with us. Report to follow after Thanksgiving. Please be praying for church planting in Samar! Love you all!
Sharon Welch posted on Facebook from Cambodia on November 19th: Returning home to Cambodia after almost 6 weeks of being apart, Dennis treated me to some R & R in the sleepy little town of Kep, Cambodia. Such a sweet blessing! A dear friend and counselor, Dottie Schultz, recommended taking time for sleep and to process so man y wonderful blessings I experienced in meeting my birth siblings. I am so thankful to God for all my family, especially my husband.
