Mission Team Update 2

Monday and Tuesday our church hosted a back to back medical and dental clinic. Dr. Tanney, Nurse Meg, several local doctors/dentists, along with many volunteers from our church combined to see an estimated total of around 290 patients during the two day clinic. We are extremely thankful for all of the doctors/dentists who volunteered their time in helping with our clinic. We also praise the Lord for the many opportunities that we had to share the gospel during the clinic. We rejoice that there were around 126 people who trusted Christ as their Saviour during the two day clinic! We ask that you continue to pray for those who have newly trusted Christ and that we will be able to help disciple them in their new found faith.

Today we went to Ptr. Resty Rivera's church for another day of the medical clinic and sharing the gospel. Dr. Tanney was able to see many patients and in the morning the mission team was able to pass out gospel tracts and be involved in personal soul winning. We also had a good day of fellowship with Ptr. Resty, and Ptr. Mark Julian was the guest speaker for the service at his church. The mission team was touched by all of the warmth and kindness that was shown to them.

The mission team is here for another six days, so we continue to ask for your prayers. I will update again soon.

God Bless,

-Ptr. Matt & Rina-

Mission Team Update


It has been a very busy and exciting past several days. The mission team arrived early Saturday morning and by the time they got to the hotel and ready for sleep it was about 4am. Later that day, they joined us at our church for some light projects and then our Bible studies, during which they were able to pass out candy, bracelets, and balloons. Today, Sunday, we had wonderful church services. The schedule was packed. Sunday School at 8:30am, Morning service at 10:00am, Youth Group at 3:30pm, and Evening service at 5:00pm. We had many visitors and several trusted Christ. We were all blessed by the messages of Ptr. Mark Julian.

Hopefully everyone will sleep well tonight as tomorrow begins our back to back days of medical/dental clinics. Please pray for God's blessing and protection during the clinic and also for people's hearts to be ready to receive the Gospel.

God Bless,

-Ptr. Matt & Rina-

Prayer Request

We are looking forward to having the mission team from Quentin Road and Westchester join us for almost two weeks. Please pray for their safety in travelling and that God will bless their time together with us as they minister here in the Philippines. I will try to post some updates from the trip as time permits.

God Bless,

Love Banquet 2011


Last Friday, February 4th, we had our annual love banquet. Our auditorium was decorated with white Christmas lights, pink table cloths, candles, heart shaped center pieces and chocolate candy spread out on the table. There were 40 adults who joined us for the evening. They were welcomed into the church by ushers and usherettes who brought them to there assigned tables and waited on them. We had a special program for the banquet:

-several special numbers (one by Rina and myself)

-a special guest speaker (Pastor Gerard Mateo from Cornerstone Bible Baptist Church in Sta. Maria, Bulacan)

-a nice sit down dinner (consisting of pancit, rice, vegetables, beef and broccoli, chicken,)

-a group game ("How well do you know your spouse" [hopefully we didn't cause any problems with this one! :) ])

-picture taking (each person who attended will receive a free copy)


It was a great night for many of our church members to fellowship with each other and to have a nice date with their husband/wife.

God Bless,

-Ptr. Matt & Rina-
