Trout February 2015 Prayer Letter

This letter was written by BIO missionary Kevin Trout

Missionaries to the Philippines

Dear Praying Friends,
It is good to be back with my family in the Philippines. Praise the Lord for His goodness and safety. It was such a joy and at the same time a relief for my wife that Ellie (our youngest daughter) and I returned this past November. The little kids (who aren’t so little anymore) were so glad that we came home as well!

With us being in a new year we anticipate and plan to do much more for the Lord Jesus Christ as we trust the Lord to provide in doing so. Please continually pray for more partners in the ministry that would help us financially as the needs are great.

As we pray and plan to reach more orphans for Christ, we were given an opportunity to house and take care of a girl who is 9 years old. Her name is Anamae. She arrived at our place last December. She was left to raise her siblings after her mother died, and eventually she ended up living on the streets with Badjao’s (Philippine beggars), as she was having a hard time just to get food every day. She ended up getting sick and could barely move, but was found by another foreign missionary who helped get her the medicines she needed. While she is with us on a temporary basis we will take good care of her and love her as God loves us. Please pray for her and all the children that their needs would be met.

Even though it’s late in the school year here there are still plans to be able to get into some schools to teach the Bible. A couple of schools have shown interest in opening the door for this opportunity to evangelize. Please pray regarding this matter.

It has been a blessing to teach and preach the Bible at a very young mission work in Buru-an, Iligan City. It’s a Muslim populated area and there is much work to be done for Christ here and throughout the area. Please pray for our safety while Mindanao has been on alert due to the Islamic disapproval of a deal that the Philippine government is trying to make with the MILF (Islamic Group).

Recently while traveling to Iligan City to extend our visas at immigration we stopped to get a few things and to have lunch. I met a man by the name of Victor whom I gave a Gospel tract to. In talking to him he was interested in the things of God. I did not realize until I looked behind me that there was a group of Muslim ladies listening to our conversation. Praise the Lord! Please pray for them, especially Victor.

Thank you for your faithful prayers and financial support. Please pray for more (much needed) financial support to come in as the Lord directs churches and individuals in doing so.

Would you consider in helping with a project, or would you consider sponsoring a child?
