On May 19, 2021 Jay had his regular quarterly oncological check up. He was found to continue to be in remission. Jay is feeling strong and is able to focus and engage well during 'normal' U.S. Mountain Daylight Time hours. Thank you for all your prayers! Sadly, U.S. Mountain Daylight Time does not align well with Philippine Standard Time. His doctors advise him to continue to live and minister in Mountain Daylight Time as much as possible.

About This Project
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. After six grueling cycles of chemotherapy Jay was declared to be in remission in August 2020.
While Covid-19 continues to be an issue in the Philippines and Jay continues to recover from the lymphoma and chemotherapy, we will stay in the USA.
While in the USA, Jay is serving as a consultant and a mentor to leaders in the Philippines. Amor continues her ministry of mentoring female leaders. Jay and Amor also serve their home church in Denver in various ways as well as helping our church network with a church plant in northwest Denver.
We are eying a return to the Philippines around September or October 2021, Lord willing. This depends on Jay continuing in remission and the Covid-19 situation in the Philippines coming under control.
Thank you for your continued support and prayers.
