Jay and Amor Hallowell have been missionaries with OMF-International in the Philippines since 1990.
From 2002 to 2014 Jay taught New Testament, Hermeneutics, Missions and other courses at the Biblical Seminary of the Philippines (BSOP) while Amor taught English and Christian Education.
In 2014, Jay became the Field Director of the OMF Philippines Field, leading 75 missionaries. Amor mentored a variety of ladies and helped new missionaries to learn language, culture, and world-view.
In March 2020, Jay was diagnosed with Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma. His doctors ordered him to go to the USA for treatment. He turned over his Field Director duties. We were then able to travel to the USA just before Covid-19 travel restrictions began, thank God. After 6 cycles of chemotherapy Jay was declared to be in remission in August 2020.
While he continues to regain health and strength and energy, he will begin a ministry of mentoring male evangelical leaders in the Philippines. Amor continues her ministry of mentoring female leaders.
While Covid-19 continues to be an issue and Jay continues to recover, we will stay in the USA, mentoring remotely. We are eying a return to the Philippines around August 2021, after, Lord willing, Jay will have been in remission for a year.
Thank you for your continued support and prayers.
