Invitation to Ordination

I’m posting here a picture of the ordination invitation that we sent out. Everyone who’s in the area is cordially invited to attend.

As for family matters, Evelyn and Rachel are in the Philippines, even though they would very much like to be with the rest of the family during this time. We’ll be moving to another house in Antipolo, Rizal on the first week of June, right after I come back from California and after Rachel’s school is done.

As a missionary pastor in the Philippines, the areas of my involvement are church planting, pastoral training, and teaching at seminaries. Lord willing, we will be able to open a Christian Study Center in the area where we live to serve as a resource and study center for pastors, as well as a seminar or workshop center and a place for worship and Bible study.

I plan to be in Concord, California until May 26. Here’s my schedule for the rest of my stay:

May 9: Ordination service
May 11: Lead worship services and preach at Trinity URC
May 17-18: Presentations at Escondido URC and Christ URC (Santee)
May 25: Preaching and presentation at Zion URC in Ripon, CA

Thanks, Gloria. We’re planning to have a longer furlough in October for my son’s wedding. We’ve been wanting to visit our old favorite places and friends in your beautiful state. Hope to see you then.

Gloria says:

Congratulations on your ordination! We are so glad and thankful to the Lord for you and what He is doing through you. We wish we could attend your ordination but we are leaving for Israel on the 13th. Hope to see you one of these days, any plans of coming up north to Washington? We’ve enjoyed your blog, what a delight to know how the Lord is blessing your family and ministry! May He continue to guide and pour His abundant blessings on all of you.
