The Trip Has Started

I am in Jackson, Michigan.

I had a wonderful time last night with Terry, Hillary, and the boys. I think the greatest part of the trip is getting to see my grandsons for a little while. They are growing up so fast.

I preached last night for Pastor White at Fellowship Baptist Church. We love the folks here they have been such a blessing to us and to our children (Terry and Hillary).

Hillary and the boys will take me into Jackson this morning for a few last items, a stop at Hinkleys (a great doughnut shop) and hit the coffee house. We will take a doughnut and coffee to Terry and then off to Pastor Whites house.

I will be leaving Pastor Whites house at 11:30 a.m. Our flight leaves Detroit at 3:30 p.m. We will arrive in Japan 13  1/2 hours after we leave Detroit. We will have about 2 hours later for the Philippines. We will land in Manila about 4 hours and 15 minutes after we leave Japan. Which is around midnight in the Philippines on Friday night.

I just want to thank every one who is praying for our trip and I especially want to thank the dear folks that God has allowed me to shepherd at Grace Baptist in Ottawa, IL. They have been such a blessing to our family. If it weren’t for the gracious giving I would not be able to be a part of this exciting trip. Be assured I will be praying for you.

I will update as often as I can get to a computer.

Blessings, Jim F. Evans

  1. Pastor,

    Our prayers are with you. Know that we are praying for your safety, the safety of those with you, and that many will come to know the Lord during your time of ministry on the trip. The Sunday night message will be titled, “God’s Design for Worship”, with the example for worship taken from the 24 elders shown to John during the Revelation.

    I don’t think I can email you the sermon document, but then again you are too busy to read it!

    Thank you for allowing me to have Wednesday night Bible Study! It is called, “Building your own Statement of Faith” and is very interactive.

    Love you Pastor,
    May God bless you beyond all that you can think or imagine!

    Paul Bladen
