We have been on Medical mission the last three days (though I did do some baptisms in the Ocean off Bataan near Corrigidor…the pictures are the bomb-digity…but I can not get them off P. Jer’s camera yet.) Anyhoo I have been playing with kids, washing feet and working in the dental clinic. I has been Amazing! How lovely to be somewhere where the church is working. I hope this for our churches in America, we are so ill, but God can heal us. I am loving being among pastors who pastor without all the crap. Here are some pictures of P. Jer pulling teeth. (don’t worry CrossWinds we will not let him do this at home ) As much as I love it here, I long too to be home with CrossWinds, because I know so many of you have commited with me to throw away American-anity and pursue the way of the Cross. The world is bigger than where we live, but our mission starts there and I am learning so much, i can not wait to begin the labors of this new year with you.
