We want to thank you for your faithfulness in prayer. Our God is indeed an awesome God! On July 14, we asked you to pray for our Philippine Director's mother Mary Asang who was hospitalized in ICU and also to pray for a property in Butuan for a church that we could purchase for $700. A week later, we let you know that Mary was home from the hospital and ask you to also be praying for our dear friend Darlene Bolen in Dallas who was also hospitalized in critical condition. God has heard and is answering your prayers. Mary Asang and her husband Pastor Tony Asang who was also sick are both doing much better. God is continuing to strengthen them daily. Darlene is also home from the hospital but needs our continued prayers for a total healing.
Last week we ministered in a small community church in rural Missouri. In response to your prayers, God touched their hearts and they gave sacrificially, enabling us to send the $700 to Mindanao to purchase the property in Butuan! We are so grateful to God for His faithfulness and so grateful to you for your willingness to stand in the gap that the Kingdom of God may be established among the tribal people of Mindanao. Thank you again for your prayers. May God bless you abundantly!
GOD LOVES YOU!!!
Rev. Howard & Barbara Gard
