Dear Pacific Northwest friends: God willing, I aim to be with you for about three weeks this November. I would be delighted to schedule a visit to your parish to talk about the Philippine mission or just to share a coffee/beer with you.
Airfare there and back again will be a bit over a thousand dollars. But between mission projects, charity opportunities, and local travel, it’s just not in the budget.
I hope to meet and thank you all personally for your partnership in this mission, and catch up on developments in all your lives. Thank you in advance for whatever way you are moved to help, and may God reward you!
