Here are some pictures from the recently concluded Daily Vacation Bible School in Davao hosted by the Davao City Reformed Baptist Church last May 11-13, 2017. Thirty-one (31) children attended the three day activity.
Let us continue to pray for our pioneering mission work in Valencia under the leadership of brother Alvin, assisted by his wife, sister May Ann. They recently conducted a three-day vacation Bible School for children aged 5-13. There were 25 participants in all. May Ann handled ages 5-7 while Alvin handled ages 8-13. Thanks be to God for the parents who attended the last day of teaching. May God use this effort to add more souls to the group that meets every Sunday at Alvin and May’s living room.
There are also two new Bible studies and four new attenders in the worship service. The two new attenders in the worship service were a result of searching the internet for a Reformed work in Valencia. Praise God for bringing them to our fellowship. There are now an average of 25 attending the worship service with half of these composed of young people.
May the Lord continue to grant fruit to the evangelistic efforts of Alvin, May and some regularly attending believers. They have regular tract distribution, a jail ministry and regular weekly Bible studies (at present three). There also have been four pastors conferences organized in the past dealing with the topics of Bibliology, the Sovereignty of God, the Doctrines of Grace and the Law of God. The pastors conference this year has been put on hold for lack a reasonably-priced meeting place. Our former venue has been sold and is not presently available.
Our continuous prayer is that the Lord be pleased to establish a solid Biblical church in this bustling city in Bukidnon.
Pastor Mike was invited to speak about parenting to families of hospital staff at the 10th anniversary of the Paranaque Doctors Hospital (PDH) last Monday, 8 May 2017. It was organized as a family welfare activity and it was a good opportunity to evangelize. May the Lord grant fruit. Thanks to sister Janeth Gumop-as of our sister church in San Pedro for including this Bible session in their whole-day activity. She works as a hospital staff at PDH.
