Hi.  I’m Theresa but friends and family call me Tree, you know, like a tree planted by the water that cannot be moved (Psalm 1). I am a mother and grandmother with family in Southern California.  I am a sister in the Lord Jesus who desires to make Him known everywhere I go.

​God’s calling on my life was to teach English using His Word.  I’m not a teacher by trade and wouldn’t know the first thing about teaching English, even though it’s my native language, BUT GOD in His infinite wisdom prepared and trained me and now I’m here doing just that!​

I live on an island here in Dumaguete, Philippines.  It’s one of the 3 main island of the 7,000 plus.  Dumaguete has a population of 120,883 people.  I live in the town but teach in English/Bible classes to 6th graders in two public schools in the mountains.  The Lord God has me teaching a Women’s Bible study on that same mountain.  The mountain people are a joy to my heart as well as a burden for them to know our wonderful God.

Please pray I would be steadfast in prayer and continual study of His Word.  Please pray for strongholds to be broken on that mountain and that the Spirit will continue the work in hearts there. Please pray for more laborers to come alongside that we could reach the next generation and that whole mountain for God’s glory and for His kingdom.

About the author

I'm from Orange County, California and have 1 daughter and 1 granddaughter still living there. I began cross-cultural work 1st in Bucharest, Romania in May 2006 as a house mom to 8 teen orphan boys. I was then led to Dumaguete, Philippines April 4, 2008. The Lord’s calling on my life is to teach English using the Holy Bible; and the Lord God has opened up doors for me to teach in the public schools here for the past 3 years. I get to share the love of God specifically in the mountain region called Maningcao (ma-NING-cow) to 6th graders and have many opportunities to evangelize everywhere I go. I'm with Pastoral Training of Asia and they print gospel tracts in the local dialects here and I use these to evangelize in the Visayan language. I'm also part of the Hospital Ministry here where a team of us go in to the provincial hospital and preach the gospel and pray with the patients. I am truly grateful to serve the Lord and the Filipino people in this way.
