God has granted favor as we minister to the people in the Philippines. Here is a picture of our team ministering to the Mayor of Gumaca. He is a believer and was touched to the point of tears that we would pray for his city and his leadership. The second mayor (of Antimonan) was not a believer but God gave us a plan and words to pray over him. In the end, his eyes revealed that he too was blessed.
God granted us much favor. The Above mayor's jurisdiction was over 59 viliages, 20 have churches with a population of over 70,000. God will surely bless his territory.
Abigail with her interpreter for door to door evangelism.
Already we have shared the Gospel to thousands who have not heard a adequate presentation of the Gospel before. This young man was one of the students (a Christian) that we shared the Gospel to at his public high school. We challenged him to share using our large Evangecube. The ONE Bible study that had been held at his school had been closed down so our coming brought renewed hope and affirmation for the Christian teacher. Apparently, on the map, the Philippines is considered a "Christian" nation (predominantly Catholic) yet many are only familiar with the death and NOT the resurrection of Jesus and why He came. So it's only about 12% evangelical Christians.
Due to the super typhoon Yolanda, our two school outreahes were cancelled as the schools were closed. So this afternoon, we will be praying for the sick at a hospital nearby then directly to the concert/crusade. Eden will be sharing a Gospel message tonight. We are told that she is good--looking forward to hearing her share about Jesus.A group of us went by the sea to worship and pray for the typhoon to be re-routed and dissipate. Will you agree with us in prayer? Please pray that the rains cease and that the the people are not discouraged to come to the evening concerts?
These writings will be a compilation from each of us so you'll get a perspective of the bigger picture. We hope you ENJOY!
