As we start the new year we are continuing to volunteer and are looking forward to what God has in store for us there in 2017!
Thursday evening we ventured out for the weekly NCC study and had an opportunity to talk and pray with a couple of other missionaries at the end of the study.
This week ended with language class and using a few phrases to introduce ourselves to someone our teacher met quick. Ako si Laura. Nagtrabajo sa Shofar Mission. Gusto ko makamao ug Bisaya. We also learned a few words that will help when talking with students along with question words.
After class we ended our Friday evening by catching up with one of the WOTS writers for supper and taking the opportunity get to know her better. We will finish out the week with administrative and housekeeping tasks as we prepare for the next week. Please continue to pray for the people we interact with on a daily basis and that we would have opportunities to meet our neighbors. We also ask for opportunities to minister to students--by talking to them about the BS, WOTS, or by getting permission to have a study on campus.
As always thanks for praying for us and we look forward to skyping with you!

On New Years Eve, in true JFB fashion, we played board games and ate junk food with a few friends from New Covenant Church. We didn't make it til midnight, but we did get to wake up to fireworks ringing in the new year :)
Many students are still on their holiday vacation, so we are using this week for a lot of administrative things and planning. We hope to reconnect with student contacts made before the holidays, so please pray for that. We are also hard at work on the next issue of WOTS, which is set to release at the end of the month. Please pray for new writers and greater involvement in our current staff. This is our main avenue of service, discipleship, and fellowship as we seek to assimilate a core group of young people who are passionate for the Kingdom.
In other news, there's a beagle running around our neighborhood that may or may not be an extra team member in May...to be continued...
