I was asked a question some time ago. That question was why don’t you just stay in the US and not the Philippines. Tough question with a difficult answer. First, we go to the Philippines because that is where God has called us, and second, we have tried for years to get opportunities to go into the churches and share what God has put on our hearts, but the churches are not interested in having evangelists come to their church.
To elaborate on the second point first. We have prayed and have done everything we felt directed to do with absolutely no response what so ever. We have been told that they do not have evangelists come or that they are the only ones allowed to speak in their church. Their reluctance or disobedience to God is between them and God and they will be judged for that. With no opportunities or direction for here we will go where God wants us and not where others think we should be. People say, there is a lot of evangelism right here. That is true, and we minister whenever the opportunity comes. We are evangelists and we will always share what God puts on our hearts.
To elaborate on the first point, one day many years ago, I heard a voice that told me we were going to the Philippines. After many days of arguing with God and telling him there was no way we were going to the Philippines, we went to the Philippines. Since the day our plane landed at Mactan International Airport in Cebu, Philippines, we knew that we knew this was the place God wanted us. Since then, we have traveled extensively to the Philippines. Where God calls you is where you go regardless of how much you go kicking and screaming only to find out, that is where you belong.
So, to answer the question, God has called us to the Philippines and we will be obedient to that call. When you are obedient to what he says, you will see some of the most amazing miracles, even if you aren’t paying attention. People have been called all over the world by God and they are in his blessings when they obey his call. We tried to argue our way out of the Philippines, but we went against our better judgement only to find we were home if you will. God has always make a way and he is always calling. Hear his voice and respond. You may say you don’t need to go anywhere, but God will say, “I need you here or there”.
An Evangelist called to preach the gospel all over the world. To lay hands on the sick and to prophecy to everyone. Reaching out to the world that all may be saved.
