In December 2022 Philip traveled to Chin State to speak at the Chin Baptist Convention. He was able to teach 25 pastors on sermon mechanics and pastoral epistles to eighty-plus teenagers from Seven One Bible School. They speak a different tongue in that area, but God gifted Philip with the ability to learn the language quickly so that they could understand the teaching.
He also received donations from various people and ministries that he distributed to one hundred pastors and five children’s homes. Aid for refugees was also sent. He and Dante are at times overwhelmed by the difficulties in their country, but Philip has learned that even though his ministry has changed somewhat, God is not done him and Dante. He believes that, as long as God gives him the strength, he will remain dedicated to serving Him in any way he can.
Philip recently asked his wife Dante, “How is all this possible?” Dante, as quiet as she is, looked at Philip with her eyes almost closed and recited Romans 8:28: “And we know God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to her purpose.” It’s just that simple for those of us who are called and love Him!!
