July 2014 Philippine Island Mission

Very soon I will be leading a team of four Christian apologists to lead an apologetics (“defense of the truth of Christianity”) conference and academy in Manila, Philippine Islands, July 19-26.

Many young Filipino believers want to learn apologetics, but they lack the resources to come to the United States to study the evidence of why Christianity is true. Thus, my team and I are bringing the training to the students where they live.

My team includes Abigail Hohenstreet, who holds a Masters degree in Apologetics from Luther Rice Seminary and is my assistant with Ratio Christi International; Ramon Margallo, originally from the Philippines, who also has a Masters degree in Apologetics from Southern Evangelical Seminary; and Jane Pantig, who earned a Masters degree in Science and Religion from Biola University.

The team is part of international arm of Ratio Christi (“reason of Christ” in Latin), a global movement that equips university students and faculty to give historical, philosophical, and scientific reasons for following Jesus Christ. Ratio Christi is now on over 120 campuses in the United States, and I was appointed International Director to reach campuses throughout the world with the truth of Christianity.

The team is paying its own way for the Philippine Mission in July, including airfare, lodging, transportation and meals. If you would like to support our Ratio Christi team, here is what you can do:

(1)     Pray. For effectiveness, safety and progress in laying a foundation for the establishment of Ratio Christi clubs at universities throughout the Philippines.

(2)    Sponsor. Your tax-deductible contributions will enable us to continue to respond to the invitations we have to travel to the Philippines and other parts of the world to proclaim and defend the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Make checks payable to Rolling Stone Ministries, and mail to Rolling Stone Ministries, P.O. Box 186, Panora, IA 50216. 

(3)     Encourage. You can follow my blogs and travel schedule at
