Before starting WOL ministries in Indonesia we are currently in training for SYME (School of Youth Ministry in English) in Taichung, Taiwan. Jon arrived in Taiwan at the start of SYME summer term 2016. He was trained as the Dean of Ministry. Part of his job was to preach at chapel hour and teach the Bible in a small group. The rest of the family arrived from the Philippines in August in time for the fall term. Sheila began her training as the Dean of English. Our SYME training will end in June 2017 and soon after we will move to Jakarta where we will start our one year language school.

I grew up in the church ever since I can remember. At eight years old we moved to the United States from the Philippines. Even though I grew up in the church, I had no concept of my eternal destination. I first heard the gospel when I was 34 years old. The pastor preached about John 3:16 and 14:6, these verses taught me that Jesus is the only way to heaven. That Sunday morning on March 29, 1994, I received Jesus Christ as my Savior. In June of 1998, my desire to know more of God brought me to the Word of Life Bible Institute in the Philippines. God not only taught me to better understand His word but also showed me that, "The harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few;" (Matthew 9:37). God used that year to show me the need for evangelism in my home country. I wanted to share the gospel of Jesus Christ to the youth of the Philippines. In May 2003, after graduating from Philadelphia Biblical University, my family and I accepted God's call to serve Him at Word of Life Philippines (2006-2015). My family presently is in Taiwan for SYME training before moving to Indonesia in June 2017.
I was born and raised in a traditional and legalistic religion. After I heard the gospel at age 16, I invited Jesus Christ to be my personal Savior. I wanted to become a missionary then, so that I could share Christ with others, but the Lord had other plans. After many years of growing and learning from His Word, the Lord granted my desire. At age 35, my family and I went back to the Philippines as full time missionaries. It has been an awesome adventure serving the Lord there with my husband, Jon, and our four children David (2000), Nathan (2003), and Sammy (2005) and Abigail (2010). We are looking forward to ministering to the Indonesians in June 2017.
