May Recap


 


 



It has been a busy month of May. Here are some of the highlights…

Some of the ladies of our church held a surprise baby shower for Rina. They all pitched in to buy a complete care baby bath center. We are thankful for their kindness and generosity. Next month, God willing, we will be able to use it.

On Mother’s Day we had 44 mothers who attended the morning service. Each mother received a rose, a fan, and chocolate. We were also able to surprise Ma'am Dulce with a bouquet of flowers and a picture frame that the church people had signed for her. It was just a simple way to say thank you to her for her faithfulness at the church during the past 10 years.

We had 15 people that were baptized on Sunday morning. In the weeks leading up to the baptism, I, along with their Sunday School teachers, sat down and spent some time talking with each one to make sure that they understood what the purpose of baptism was. It is a joy to know that they expressed their desire to follow the Lord in obedience and be baptized. Please pray that they will continue to grow in their faith and serve the Lord.

After our Sunday evening service, we were able to pass out school notebooks for our church kids from kindergarten all the way through high school. These notebooks were kindly donated by a family in Texas that used to live in the Philippines and attend our church. We passed out over 250 notebooks and we still have some more to give away this week. It was a blessing to be able to give out the notebooks and help the kids get ready for school. It starts next week.

We thank everyone for their constant prayers and support.

God Bless,

-Ptr. Matt & Rina-
