2018 update from Panama
We are faith workers and receive no salary from ACTION but trust God to provide financially through people who are the givers, pray-ers and senders in this missionary work through ACTION International and called FACE 2 FACE. So you may ask why, how and what does all this mean in reality? God called and we responded. It seemed crazy but we were full speed ahead and sold everything, kissed our kids and grandkids goodbye and moved to Manila Philippines in 2001. There we served the Lord for 16+ years in many ways but with a special focus in the men’s maximum security prison, New Bilibid, home to 14,000 of the worst of the worst. God loved them and redeemed so many of them including alleged terrorists. God allowed us to also bear His fruit at the Correctional Institution for Women in Mandaluyong and on the southern Island of Mindanao. When the horrific typhoon of 2013 hit the Visayas Islands, God provided for FACE 2 FACE to provide humanitarian relief which included building some houses, a church, boat and restoring houses and a school. Because people cared and shared, we also were able to sponsor children and help families get back on their feet. ALL heard the Good News Gospel of God’s saving grace through Jesus. And then, the Good Lord raised up a physical community of survivors which is becoming a Community of Believers. In 2017, we turned over FACE 2 FACE Philippines to those we had trained and mentored. For the second time, we sold everything and said goodbye to friends in the Philippines.
We answered God’s call to Panama where we now live in Chiriqui Province and continue to serve as God lays down a new path of ministry with those He loves and calls to Himself. We have experienced God’s provision as faith workers and ….The Lord has provided all these years through people who hear about the ministry and become a part of our FACE 2 FACE team what God is doing globally. We wish we could show you more but we respect the privacy of inmates and those we serve now. May God give you a glimpse of His work through FACE 2 FACE.
