Welcome to West Highland!
Thank you for worshipping with us!
Welcome to West Highland where our
doors are wide open to people from all
backgrounds, regardless of where they
are from or where they’re at on their spiritual journey.
Mabuhay again from the Philippines! Have you figured out yet
what mabuhay means? As you are reading this, we are getting
ready for bed after a long day of ministry which began at 5:30
A.M. when I preached at the outdoor sunrise worship service of
the Glan Evangelical Alliance Church. In about 12 hours time, it
will be Monday morning in the Philippines and we will begin the
LeadersFor training for another group of about 40 pastors in
General Santos, the southernmost city of the Philippines. This is a
beautiful port city roughly the same population as Hamilton.
By Thursday, the first round of training will be finished and we will
make the long trip back to Manila to begin our journey home.
Lord willing, I hope to be with you next Sunday morning (if jet lag
allows). Many thanks for your prayer support during this time.
To keep up to date on my impressions and experiences of Filipino
food, culture, sights, history, people and ministry, please check
out my blog “Mission to the Philippines” on our church’s
Facebook page (www.facebook.com/westhighlandchurch). May
the Lord bless you all richly in worship today. I am praying for you.
Mabuhay to you all!
