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 adventure.

Hi all,

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.


(Russ and his wife, Sylvia, are with OC International and live in Colorado Springs, CO)

This article was written by Anita Saunders. She and her husband, Chuck, served at Faith Academy as Boarding Home Parents in the mid-90’s.

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 are missed.

"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." 
Phil 1:9-11

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 Sherif.

Love, Ann

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,

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!

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 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
