Dear Friends in Christ,
We do give thanks to God for this year (2019). For much of the year, there was a need for endurance as not everything was going well. But now, things have turned around. My wife is healthy enough to work, and I have work as a school teacher lined up for another year. The school I work for now, Faith Christian School of Distance Education, has a powerful vision for missions, and I believe that God had a plan I didn’t understand about how he wants me involved in using education to make disciples around the world. More to come on that I’m sure.
The highlight of this year for me has been the earlier trip to the Philippines, in October. During this time, God was pleased to allow me to preach the gospel to many thousands, and help hundreds be baptized in the Holy Spirit. Workers were trained for the harvest, and they have continued to reach out and make disciples to the present day. Our new outreach home churches are starting to grow I was told today ( on the 14th of December). I heard that 7 people received the Lord through this ministry today. I know many miracles continue to take place. There are at least 10 “Houses of Peace” functioning now as a result of that last trip.
I have my tickets for the Philippines again – leaving on the 2nd of January, 2020 for 18 days. I’m returning to Mayantoc, Tarlac, where I worked last time with Jim and Rowena dela Cruz. I expect we’ll be ministering in the University, in schools and from house to house. My hope is to train the people who were converted or responded to God last time – and get them active in the harvest. The harvest is ripe, and we need laborers. We pray for laborers and trust that God will do more.
I really do value your prayers. My wife and children need prayer covering as well. Marilena is ministering in the prophetic, as is our youngest daughter, Christina, who frequently sees visions from the Lord when she is in Christian meetings and sometimes at other times. It is very wonderful for me as her father to see this. I see signs of God working in Lisa’s life as well. Lisa is going into senior high school next year.
We hope to go as a family to the Philippines for a missions trip together in April, 2020.
If you’d like to help us financially to enhance our missions work, you can do so through Paypal or any other way you please. You can use this link if you’d like to help in this way. I’m always so encouraged by small gifts as well as larger gifts. I take it as encouragement from the Lord that the Body of Christ is with me in this outreach and disciple-making work.
At the same time, I continue to pump out teaching as God enables me on my Facebook channel. I don’t seem to have time to upload it to this website as well, due to my busy schedule.
God bless you,
14th December, 2019
