This little ministry continues its work in the Philippines, as evidenced with new boxes being packed with items for the Institute of Foundational Learning in the Philippines. We are also packing items because more permanent quarters are being set up for us.
I say “we” because Faylene Lawson is now Faylene Beard as of yesterday. She will join me on the mission field and we will work together with our dear friends at IFL. It is likely we will be at IFL by late August for a couple months, followed with two months in the US, followed with a more lengthy stay in the Philippines.
Ministry supplies at home continue to be distributed to needy ministries on three continents as part of the downsizing that is occurring in Crozet VA (the home for this ministry is the Beard home in Crozet VA). Personal property is up for sale. Faylene and I do not know, at this point, where we will have a US base, if we have one after 2017. We have people who have offered us places to live temporarily in the Virginia area. As previously planned and reported, we feel called to be part of the work with IFL, but we don’t know how long it will take for the change to occur.
In the meantime, there is much work to be done. Please keep us in prayer.
