Hope Chapel Metro - Outreach to the Children!

This past weekend Hope Chapel Metro had a "Family Fun Day" outreach to bless the children in a nearby barangay community. Over 500 people attended and 200 children received backpacks full of school supplies. We also had clowns, face painting, nail painting, free ice cream, balloons, a magician and of course a message about God's love for them. It was an awesome day!

We made it to our new home!

We finally made it to our new home here in the Philippines after two years of praying, hoping and confirming! Big thanks to those who came to the airport early in the morning on a Saturday to see us off and for all the text messages and phone calls.
We were blessed to have been upgraded to business class for free, definitely a nice treat on a 10 hour flight!

It was Sunday afternoon when we arrived and we were taken to our apartment located in the same building as Pastor Nolan and Jay. We spent a little time freshening up and headed off to the Hope Chapel Metro service, our new church home! It was great to see a young crowd and a team that is passionate to love this community.
Stay tuned for our Video Newsletter coming soon!!!
