We continue to work on plans to plant a United Methodist presence in Biao, Philippines during our March 5th - 23rd, 2009 visit. Our team is planning on teaching Vacation Bible School (VBS) to the children for 7 consecutive days and to hold evangelistic crusades 7 consecutive evenings. The theme for the VBS and crusades will be a celebration of God find the lost. The structure for VBS will center around lessons about Christmas, Good Friday, Easter, Pentecost, The Lost Sheep, The Lost Coin, and The Lost Boy.

We will tour the area including a trip to the beach. The cost, which includes everything except our passport, immunizations, and personal spending money is $2350. I will provide an update when I know when the deposit for the flight reservations is due. The balance will probably be due sometime in January 2009.
