The Schulz’ are moving to the Philippines!!! Wait, WHAT!?! I know, I KNOW!! We cannot believe it either. It all started a little over 4 years ago when God planted a seed in our hearts, just a little, about an orphanage (Children's Shelter of Cebu) in Cebu City, Philippines. That seed has grown much larger in the past few years (especially since January) and we are listening to God’s call on our lives to go over to the Philippines for a Short Term (but actually a pretty long term) mission. We will be leaving towards the end of August or early September (it really depends on our house selling and our support raising efforts on when we will leave for sure).  The initial commitment is 2 years but who knows how God will lead beyond that ;) We are all very excited as we take this faith step. The kiddos CANNOT wait to catch lizards, play soccer everyday, and make new friends! :) They have been so supportive and excited through this whole process and we are incredibly grateful for that. Jake is excited to share his expertise in operational management and work with the staff at the Children's Shelter of Cebu, also know as CSC. The kiddos and I will be able to serve in various ways as well and are super excited about the opportunity to serve God and the children, in the Philippines. 

We would LOVE it if you would support us in prayer for the shelter and for the Schulz' as we make this crazy life transition! 

We would also LOVE it if you would consider supporting us financially as well. The number we need to raise to be over there for 2 years is BIG, but guess what! Our GOD is bigger! We have full confidence that he will see to it that our needs are met through you, our generous friends and family. Philippians 4:19 says "And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus"! We truly believe that! If you feel led to support us financially you can do so here (be sure to put 'Jake Support' in the comment section). Thank you Thank you Thank you!

Feel free to subscribe to our blog so you can follow us on our adventure. We will do our best to keep you updated with current information on when we leave and how our support is going and then how we are doing once we get there as well! We love you all!

Have a blessed day!!
