Trip Updates

Trip updates will be posted as new articles on this site as we have an opportunity. At this present time, there are plans to work in several areas. This will be updated shortly as things are confirmed with our contacts in the Philippines and Ken Wilkey, the missionary we will be accompanying.


Chris Carson, and Matthew & Paula Henderson are planning a mission trip with our children (Amelia, Maddy, Sam, and Philip) to the Philippines this summer, which will be led by Ken Wilkey (a long-time missionary who serves in the Philippines six months of the year). Our planned departure would be around midnight on July 10, and returning on July 26.

Lord willing, we will begin teaching on the day our plane lands, and be busy working until our plane departs for home once again. What more as fathers could we desire for Amelia, Maddy, and Sam, as they begin life after high school, than to be able to serve beside them with our good friend and brother Ken in a foreign field. This is a trip to share in fellowship and the Word with our brethren in the Philippines, to build up and edify, not a vacation to sight-see the country and spend on our own pleasures.

Matt, Paula, Chris, Amelia, Sam, Maddy, & Philip
