Jonathan is a wonderful, loving, loyal, caring, and serving man with a true desire to serve the Lord. His passion is to work in the mission field. He has always dreamed of marrying a white woman, and now his dream will become a reality!
Emily loves Jonathan dearly, but never expected or anticpiated the way that God brought him into her life. He has been a huge blessing in her life and being immersed into the Philippine culture has been an adventure for her. She has just graduated as a nurse, and is looking forward to focusing on other areas besides school and studying in the next phase of her life.

Girlie is a great friend of mine. We first got to know one another in 2005 when I first hired her to wash my laundry (which always turned out spotlessly clean). She has a very beautiful and quiet spirit, and we relate to one another on a deeper level. We have kept in touch ever since then, and when I was in Davao in April/May she was my roomate. Girlie is planning on going back to University starting this June.
With her 9 mth old daughter, Zephaniah.
Ana is an outgoing, super friendly type of gal that immediately befriended me when I first came to HOJ. Ana can always make me laugh and put a smile on my face. Her and Girlie are also good friends, and they were both very excited to be bridesmaids together (something they had previously disscussed with one another).
Lydia and I met in HOJ in 2005. I have seen her numerous times since then both in Canada and in the Philippines. Lydia is a good friend to both of us and has provided a lot of wisdom for our relationship.
Jeff and I first met when I was working with House of Jubilee in year 2005. He was one of the DTS students from YWAM Eagle Nest Alberta Canada who came for their 2 1/2 months outreach. He is a good and loving husband and God fearing man. We started to become good friends when we spent most of our free time feeding the street kids in Victoria Plaza.
Gary has just finished his YWAM Discipleship Training School in Davao and now he is looking for a job. We worked together and were roomates for 1 year at the HOJ. Gary has an outgoing personality and is great at playing the drums. He used to play in the church worship band.
Jerry and I met in House of Jubilee 2 years ago. He is our very talented base guitar player in the church worship band. We bond together through our Christian faith.
Zoe is a sweet and beautiful 5 year old who loves being a flower girl. When I first met her, she was only 2 years old (her age in the picture) and was slightly afraid of my white skin. Occasionally I helped the HOJ youth babysit her during the day.
