of New Members
family of singers- that's who Erlinda(mother), and daughters
Leah, Joy, and Janice are known in this little congregation
now. It was only September when all of them received the Lord
thru baptism. Now, they even have 2 refrerrals- that of couples
Franklin and Juliet; and, Nelsa and kids Jeffrey and Melody.
We are very optimistic given the assistance of this family
that soon they will also receive Christ.
Now, Erlinda's son also received Christ after hearing the
gospel and after so much encouragement from family. Nonoy,
who was baptized later than his family members now joins the
youth group along with a recent convert, Terence, sophomore
nursing student. Since these youngsters happen to llive in
one area, one could only imagine possible growth in the work
in this "purok" or zone. Terence leads prayer for
offering in Church.
During WBS distribution, Kuya Wayne and I got across Liza,
a confused mother of a first grader. She was very interested
during the first meeting and inspite of discouragements, accepted
Christ. She too displays the potential of witnessing others
April, UP Cebu graduating student learned about Christ thru
his professor, a bro. in the faith, Bro. Robert Roxas. She's
been endorsed to us to assist her thru the local Church. This
young lady has the potential. Smart and spiritually inclined,
I hope to include her among the roster of potential leaders
for the youth group.
They were found. God helped us find them, or thru others they
sought and found or were sought and found, but above all these
incidents manifests God's grace and power. We thank the Lord,
because these people were persuaded not by anything else but
by the Word of God preached.
It is our prayer that God carries us through even in this
sometimes toilsome but otherwise enriching, fulfilling, and
worth life-giving work called ministry.
