July 11th is one of the most important dates in my life. Nine years ago I arrived here in Manila for the first time. I didn’t know any of the language, and what little I knew of Filipino culture came from an outdated book.
Much has changed since then. Students, teammates, and friends have come and gone.
One thing hasn’t changed: God has proven Himself faithful time and again.
This morning, O Lord, I praise You for all the past–so wayward on my part, so wonderful and gracious and longsuffering and forgiving and tender and inspiring on Yours.
