The Philippines Update
Our third group of students has started classes at the Tribal Missions Training Center. Some of our new students come from family backgrounds which include witchcraft and other occult practices. Praise the Lord that He has rescued them and is writing a new story in their life. He is the author and finisher of their faith! Please be in prayer with us for their success and good spiritual health.
Toys, clothes, and other items have been delivered to the children in The Philippines. Thanks so much for all of you who made this possible. Your kind and generous gifts make so much happen for the helpless ones. God bless you for being willing to reach half way around the world to make a difference with your contributions.
The new church plants in Osmena, The Philippines are going well. As of now, they don't all have a structure to house their meetings, but they still grow in grace and in numbers! Our lead missionary Pastor Laid, visits the new churches frequently. He takes time to encourage the pastors and congregation in the Lord. All of our pastors are staying strong and reaching the people of Mindanao.
We are only about a week away from signing the contract on our facility for our Ministry and Missions School in Goianapolis, Brazil. It is an exciting time for us here as we begin to prepare the place for the arrival of our students at the end of July. There is a lot of work to be done, adding bathrooms and showers, acquiring beds and supplies, etc. Please keep the future students in your prayers as they prepare to enter the mission field.
Once again we covet your prayers because prayer is our deepest need. Without this we can accomplish nothing. Join us in praying for the lost people in The Philippines and Brazil. Join us in praying for our missionaries. Join us in praying for our future students. Join us in praying for the Badjao people. Join us in praying for God's glory.
Support for Students in Brazil
Many of our incoming students are very poor, and cannot afford to pay for the school. We have determined in our hearts, though, to turn no qualified student away because of money. These are future Pastors, missionaries and church planting pioneers and we think they are worth any investment of our own time and money. We will be funding everything we can, however, our funds are limited. These students, these young men and women of God, need your help. It will take about US$240/ month to take care of one student's food, housing & etc. May you find it in your hearts to help support a student fully or in part.
