He is there in the Philippines to preach, share his testimony and meet many of the pastors and missionaries we support.
He quickly learned how much the pastors and people in the Philippines honor their guests. Seven pastors met him at the airport. Micah said, "That's just incredible to me. Some drove 2 or 3 hours."
The family he is staying with insists on putting the only electric fan in the house in his room.
"It's a way of honoring guests, which is a big part of the culture," Micah said.
Micah sent his schedule so we could pray for him. Below is his schedule. Please pray for him, and ask God to use him in mighty ways to reach the lost and encourage the Christians. The Philippines is 13 hours ahead of us in Alabama. If you are in a different time zone please do the math. I'm a journalist, and journalists are not known for our math skills. :-)

* anniversary services
"The anniversary services, I don't know the times for them. It could be at any time of the day. They are all-day events, and they have several sermons by different pastors/men. The anniversary services are evangelistic in nature, so please pray for the souls during that time.
It is exciting what God is doing in the Philippines, and Martha and I are thankful that Love In Action is part of it. And, we are thrilled for these opportunities God has given Micah to minister there.
