The group of seventeen Walnut Street members who went to the Philippines in June observed the need of the students of the Philippine Theological College for shoes and back packs. Upon our return, we began the process of raising $4,000 to meet these needs. With the generosity of many of you, this goal was met. On behalf of the group, Jan Mayberry has written the following note of thanks.

Dear Walnut Street family and friends, We would like to thank the elders and our church family and friends for your support in helping our Philippines group raise enough money for our PTC students. With your assistance and generosity, we were able to raise $4,320, which will enable each student to have a new back pack, a pair of tennis shoes, and a pair of flip flops. This would not have happened without your support and prayers. We cannot thank you enough for what this means to us and what it will mean for these young men. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. The Philippines Group

Please also pray for Bernadette Bullington and the 12 others who are beginning their return home from the Philippines today.
