A number of people have requested to know my itinerary for the missions trip to the Philippines. I am thankful to know that so many are interested. Here it is as it now stands, always making room for last minute changes (of course). The dates are based on local Philippine time.
3/14 – Arrive Manila @ 9:30 pm.
Will spend 2 nights in Manila. This is time to set up Internet and phone so I can communicate back home. Will also be time to catch up on e-mail.
3/16 – 3/ 20 – Calbayog City, Samar. This is one of the poorest cities in the Philippines. Many needy and hungry children live here. While we only have 20 sponsored children here at present, we help feed many more than that. Pastor there is Danny Montes at Faith Tabernacle.
3/20 – 4/4 – Bohol.
Mostly in Tagbilaran City, but will visit some other places on the island where we have pastors and children. We have 9 pastors on Bohol and about 250 sponsored children. Robert and Sarah Cuenca will join me in Bohol.
