The Payoff

Ok, I have lured you in. Now, for the payoff...but wait, you see I have tried to create a place that could be informative, humorous and hopefully, inspiring. My hope is that missionary work could be kept in the forefront of people's minds. But, there is something in it for me, if you will just send $19.95 I will send you a special prayer cloth and anointing oil....No, no, no!!!! just kidding. What's in it for us? Well Paul said:
  • 1Th 5:25 Brethren, pray for us.
  • 2Th 3:1 Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you:
  • Heb 13:18 Pray for us
I remember reading a portion about this where the writer said Paul's secret of success was in part due to the fact he was able to focus so many prayers on his ministry. I am trying to follow in his footsteps. To this end, I include our specific prayer requests. Maybe you could print it out and bring it before the Lord in prayer. I remember once, as I went to assume the pastorate of a particular church, we could sense the people in other places praying for us. We are not ashamed to admit our desperate need of God's help and the prayers of God's people.

Thank you for your prayers!

Please pray…


1. For our special “1000 Sunday” that God would give us that many people in the house of God, and that He would convict them of their sins and save a great multitude that day. (July 23, 2006)

UPDATE:  Thank you for your prayers.  The Lord gave us 1,153.  Praise God!

2. That God would raise up more workers for the church here and for the harvest field in the Philippines.

3. That God would give us land to build our bible college on close to Angeles City.

4. That God would supply the necessary finances for the land and the building of the college.

5. That God would send in more students for the college that they would be trained and sent out to preach the gospel throughout the Philippines and the world.

6. That God would give us a great unity and spirit of love one for another here.

7. That God would send a great revival here in the Philippines and in our church.


1. For the health of my wife and the safe delivery of the baby (due Oct. 9).

2. For continual spiritual growth in my life and in my wife’s life.

3. Fresh uplifting messages for the people.

4. That God would continue to help us learn the Tagalog language and become fluent.

5. For the continued protection, physical and spiritual of myself, my wife, and Rev. Gaudario.

Thank you.

Dear Bro. and Sis. Devonshire,
What a blessing it is to read your blog!

It's kind of like reading the newspaper with your coffee with cream and sugar of course!:)

Alas later on I logged on and Wa La there you be. So I don't know what the problem was but thats ok.

Many prayers for the harvest field in the P.I. and for the laborers. Also for the health of your wife and little one.
Your's in Christ, here there or in the air!
