You are our partners and you minister with and through us. Thank you and praise God!


Woo hoo! Now comes the exciting stuff! 🙂

Thanks for posting your schedule. I’ll be praying for ya’ll as you go. That kind of flight schedule can be difficult, even for a lover of flying like me (give me a window seat and my iPod and I’m happy, even on 15-hour flights) but I’m confident you will all come through with flying colors. Are you flying east over Europe/Asia, or West over the US/Canada? Don’t know that it matters too much (just kinda fun to know)… no matter which way you go you’re gonna have a nasty case of jet lag. But it’ll pass; give yourself a day for every time zone you cross and permission to be really off your game for that amount of time.

This is what you’ve been training for, and God’s given you all you need for everything you will face. So sit back, hang on and enjoy the ride! ‘Cause God’s got it all in His hands. 🙂

I’m so excited for ya’ll!

Praying, praying, praying…it has been a privelage for Joanna and me to get a glimpse of your journey over the past few months. It was around the time you guys left for Hawaii that Tammy first sent your blog information to us and I have watched in amazement since. God has us right where He needs us and this is your time to be in the Philippines. We will be ferverntly praying a hedge of protection around you, Tara and the kids. More than anything, we will be standing with you in prayer for the hearts of those who God is already preparing to meet Him through you and the others there with you. Claim 1 Peter 5:7 as you adjust to what He has in store for your family. We don’t know you well…but yet we love you so!!

In Christ,
Steve and Joanna Lasiter
Conway, Arkansas

Praying for you and your family…


Jerald and I and my Mother will be praying for you too.

Thanks for letting us be a part of this! The LORD bless you and your family abundantly and cast out all fear as you continue your march boldly into His territory of utter faith and dependence on Him!

Blessings to your family. God bless you for your ministry.

To all –

It truly is wonderful how God comforts us through the prayers of others. Knowing that so many are praying for us, sending us, and looking forward to hearing about God’s work through us brings great peace and joy.

This must be a dream come true for you and your family. I’ll pray for you and look forward to reading your posts.

Blessings in travel.

I don’t sign in often, but I check in every day. (Tara, I really miss having you here though I didn’t get to see you often) Anyway, know that we are praying for you. We are praying for your safety and for your strength and endurance as you share the gospel. I look forward to seeing how God uses you!

Reba!!! It was wonderful to get a note from you. Thank you. I never know who reads from home, but I always hope some do!

Praying, praying, praying. Joanna and I feel privileged to have been able to (and hope to continue) “watch from the sidelines” as God continues to work through you, Tara and the kids. I have enjoyed getting a glimpse into what God is doing since Tammy first sent your blog information to us before you left for Hawaii last year. We will continue to pray a mighty hedge of protection around you all as well as for the hearts God is already preparing in the Philippines. We cannot wait to hear about those who meet Jesus as a result of your obedience to go forth as He has commanded. We don’t know you well, but we love you so!! Please send our love to Tara as well. Keep us posted when you can.

In Christ alone,
Steve & Joanna
