helped new missionaries to learn language, culture, and
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
continued to be an issue in the Philippines and Jay
continued to recover from the lymphoma and chemotherapy, we
stayed in the USA.
While in the USA,
Jay served as a consultant and a mentor to leaders in
the Philippines. Amor continued her ministry of
mentoring female leaders. Jay and Amor also served their
home church in Denver in various ways as well as
helping our church network with a church plant in
