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
