The St. Philip’s clergy, Vestry, and staff are delighted to report that we have successfully completed our 60-day “$198 to be Great” debt retirement campaign, and we would like to thank everyone who has so generously provided!

Sallie was one of our very first “God’s Littlest Lambs” that the Lord used to l...Keep Reading
I am grateful to several St. Philippians who have prayed for my little sparrow in Rwanda. Fraterine is a ten-year-old boy who, until the last year, has led a solitary life, away from school and simply drifting during the days because so many children made fun of his discomfiting, facial skin condition. Since discovering God’s little sparrow last summer, we from the Dufat...Keep Reading

When they quake, fire and brimstone slide from their lips, demonstrating God’s almighty, o...Keep Reading

He looks as if he could be apprehensive or worried. ButI was there, and I know that actually he was entranced, very intent, and totally focused on something he was watching. I'd like to backtrack n...Keep Reading
Since 2005, through the generosity of Christian individuals, churches, and corporations, Water Mission has made possible the "free gift" of clean drinking water to disadvantaged people around the world. You and I know that this gift is not free, for it requires a commitment of generous people who have a heart to bring Jesus Christ's message, the "free gift of living wate...Keep Reading
In the past few months, God has been blessing LAMB with the most precious of gifts: more children at our children's home! Already home to over 50 children, God's Littlest Lambs Children's Home in Honduras has seen a sudden increase in the number of children we have been asked to provide care for.
