Since being in the
Philippines (1984-88) teaching Middle School PE (Doug) and Middle School English
(Sheri Cooper/ Morse) we have been in Eugene/Springfield, Oregon as
Missionaries with Child Evangelism Fellowship. We have also been busy
with our eight children who now range in age from 22 - 10 years old. We
reach between 2400 - 3200 children, in Lane County, each year through our CEF
ministries. If you are ever in our area please feel free to look us up
and come and stay, our guest room is always open.
Sheri and I were given
a trip to the PI this year by our children and our oldest daughter Jenel was
able to go with us. We were able to experience a Bible Dedication for
the Bolinao New Testament, have ministry with CEF of the Philippines, in a
public school, visit Faith and people from the past. It was a great
It is hard to believe it has been over thirty years since I left Faith Academy (1981). Where have the years gone? Thanks for keeping me posted on things at that end.
As you know my wife of 45 years, Marianne, died and I have since remarried Sylvia. God has been good to me.
With fond memories.

Joe & Debi are now living in Greenville, SC. Joe has a job teaching
at a Christian school in town. We are thankful the Lord has provided
this job though we know this is a 'stepping stone' to where he might
further lead us. Joe would still like to find a position in HS guidance
counseling. We are adjusting to living in the south, in the Bible
belt, where every one, it seems, attends church. I am adjusting to not
seeing very many 'black heads' as i walk around... everyone here seems
to be blonde! We are from 1-3 hours away from 3 of our kids and one set of
parents, for which we are very thankful. We have seen specific ways it has been important for us to be close by to our family. Our
daughter, husband and only grandchild live in Canada so we don't see
them as much as we'd like to. And we had a wedding this summer with
Johnmark who lives with Jessica in Chicago, Illinois.
My home is beginning to look like I've lived in the tropics as it is
getting filled with Filipino baskets, artifacts & Taytay fabric!!!
We both really miss
Faith & pray often for the administration, the
staff and those wonderful MK's!! You, as a Faith Academy community
"And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in
knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what
is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled
with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ- to the
glory and praise of God."
Missing you all,
Joe & Debi

I am enjoying my retirement in Maine.
I keep busy taking folk to the doctors and shopping, helping in mini
church services by choosing and leading songs at two assisted living
facilities and planting seeds, replanting flowers and vegetable plants in my
garden as well as spending time with my Egyption friend Fay and her son
Recently at the IMKEC
conference in Colorado Springs, all the Faith folks met for dinner and a picture. Back row left to right: Don Boesel, Bob Pittman, Jerry Tucker, Alan

After spending four school years in Mexico teaching missionary kids, and
one year taking are of my great, grandson while his Daddy finished up
schooling to become a nurse, I am moving to Florida again near Everett's
sisters and their families. The Lord has provided me with a brand new place
to live. Praise Him!
Yesterday He confirmed to me that I should take my trunk of learning disability
materials, so He must have a dyslexic student He wants me to help there.
I also hope to begin writing again. Without a specific job to do, I will have
time to devote to writing down thoughts that have been circulating in my
mind for years.
Please pray with me that my time will be His time. Loving greetings to all
who remember Ev and me, Faith Boyce, email@example.com
I’m no Abraham, and I’m not quite his age when he became a
father. Nevertheless, becoming a
dad when one is in his 60’s is a momentous occasion.
Meet Peter LeRoy Snyder, a young
Kenyan man who I adopted. He lost his father when he was three years old and his mother
when he was a teenager. Peter and
I minister together in Kenya: I
teach, and he translates. In
the fall he will enter Asbury Seminary in Orlando, FL, to pursue a doctorate in
International Studies. I am
thrilled that Peter wants to be a college teacher, since that means he’s
following in my footsteps! firstname.lastname@example.org
Alex and Chris continue to
run a non-profit organization named Threads of Hope, Inc., started by
Alex nearly eight years ago. The ministry is twofold, providing
supplemental income for 500 people in villages near Puerto Galera, as
well as supporting the ministry of Pastor Alejo Matienzo, who came down
to Aninuan to disciple those who became believers through this ministry.
The livelihood project is selling products that the people were already
making for their income, but giving them a much broader market,
therefore providing more sufficiently for hundreds.
If you or someone you know needs a means of raising money for a mission
trip or organization, or you would just like to support the ministry,
contact Alex at email@example.com
for more information. We offer the products with no cost upfront, and
if used for fund raising, 50% will then be returned to Threads of Hope,
Inc., with 50% going towards your ministry.
Joyfully Serving Him,
Alex and Chris
