Sunday Night Revival Service

This past Sunday night, 50 of us attended a special revival service hosted by another church in Manila. We filled two rented jeepneys along with our vehicle and drove 1 and 1/2 hours to the service. There were over 450 in attendance and everyone was challenged by the speaker to love their church. We thank the Lord for the protection he provided for us as we traveled.

Fiesta


Last Friday was the fiesta for Bahay Pare. It was really crowded. We had a Bible study at 2:00pm and it took us 45 minutes to drive about half a mile through the town. I was able to take this picture as we were driving to the church. For our second Bible study we decided it would be better to walk rather than wait in traffic and try to find a parking spot. There was an increased security presence due to the fiesta but to my knowledge there weren't any major problems.

Typhoon Update

Typhoon 'Pedring' made its way through the Philippines. Yesterday, we had brownouts throughout the day to go along with the heavy wind and rain. Thankfully, we only had some minor leaks at our house, but as you can see from the pictures, others were not as fortunate. Today we decided to drive to the church to see if there was any major damage. There were just a couple places with some very minor flooding and our small tent fell over and broke, but other than that we are thankful that it wasn't more severe.

I do want to especially ask for your prayers for our church people. Many of them have been affected by the flooding. We had planned to try to visit some of the different areas where they lived to see if we could help, but some of the flooded roads were too risky to try to drive through. As far as I know everyone is safe, but we did hear about a girl in the neighboring barangay who was killed yesterday due to a falling tree.

I would like to also ask you to pray for continued protection as the Philippine weather service, PAGASA, has said they are expecting another storm, named 'Quiel', to possibly arrive later this week.

Thank you for the continued prayers, God bless.

Men's Prayer Breakfast


Last Saturday we had a special men's fellowship & prayer breakfast. There were a total of 12 of us who gathered at the church at 6:30am. We prepared a delicious breakfast of rice, tocino, eggs, hot pandesal, bananas, rambutan, coffee, and iced tea. We had a short program of group exercises, and then we sat down to eat and fellowship. Following our breakfast, we all gathered together and spent some quality time both individually and as a group in prayer. There was also a short time of testimonies and praise. Everyone really enjoyed this time of fellowship and prayer and we have already made plans to do it again next month.

God Bless,
