"I believe that if an angel were to wing his way from earth up to Heaven, and were to say that there was one poor, ragged boy, without father or mother, with no one to care for him and teach him the way of life; and if God were to ask who among them were willing to come down to this earth and live here for fifty years and lead that one to Jesus Christ, every angel in Heaven would volunteer to go. Even Gabriel, who stands in the presence of the Almighty, would say, 'Let me leave my high and lofty position, and let me have the luxury of leading one soul to Jesus Christ.' There is no greater honor than to be the instrument in God's hands of leading one person out of the kingdom of Satan into the glorious light of Heaven."--Dwight L. Moody

Hello Everyone - we're leaving today (Tues) and will be traveling into Dhaka.  We are leaving a day earlier than we had planned (just happened to check our ticket and found out we were scheduled to leave a day earlier than we had thought - so we're leaving in a bit of a flurry!)   Last night we had a special farewell with songs, prayer, and a video from our church family and friends.   As each child left the worship room, we handed them a glow stick and sent them into the courtyard.  Stacey and Kinzie (the SM) used a small bubble machine we brought to send off waves of bubbles from the rooftop into the courtyard while several people shone their lights on the bubbles as they descended  on the children in the night sky!   It was alot of fun and took quite a bit to calm the children down for bed!   Hugs and kisses and goodbyes and tears.   We're on our way to Dhaka - please keep us in your prayers as we travel and please don't forget to pray for the children and staff here at Bangla Hope!  Blessings to all -- the Philpott Family
