Touching The Nations
Dear Friend,Year 2007 has passed and another year has come - 2008. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
The boys and Flower are doing great.
Barnabas asks almost every day when Opa & Oma (Granddad & Grandmother) are coming. It has been 2 years ago I have seen my parents so we are looking forward to their arrival on January 17.
Thanks again for all your help and support this past year. It is hard to believe that we have been here in the Philippines for almost 3 years now.
UNFORTUNATELY WE DON'T HAVE PICTURES OF ANY EVENTS. OUR CAMERA IS BROKEN. WE APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE AND WILL HAVE NEW PICTURES AGAIN IN OUR NEXT NEWSLETTER!!!CHRISTMAS OUTREACH
The Christmas Outreach was a great success. We were able to bless 40 poor families with a food parcel. Many members of the church joined in the Christmas Outreach to help a hand. Thanks for supporting TTN. It is through your support we were able to bless some real poor families. It was such a great success that we are planning to do it again next year.CHRISTMAS PARTY
After the Christmas Outreach we at the church had a Christmas party for the members. Remember that December is hot in the Philippines. Our Christmas party was at the swimming pool. Although many students already gone home for Christmas stillmany people showed up. About 60-70 people showed up to join celebration. When it was time to go home we were all tired, but very happy!
The members of the church are very excited about the year 2008. We believe that this year will be harvest time. The year 2007 was sowing time, but now we are looking forward to see many saved. Although we haven't reached our goal of 50 cell groups in April yet, however, we are expecting to have about 25-30 cell groups in January. The church is going the right direction.
Our main problem this year is not to get cell groups, but to findpeople who would be willing to lead a cell group. However, God is working in people's heart and we will keep pressing on for with God nothing is impossible.
The 3 disciples in training - Lisa, Donna & Juland - are all three doing great and growing in the Lord. This past month it was Donna's turn to share a message. She did a great job and talked about the cost of discipleship.
It looks like the Lord will be adding another disciple to our discipleship program in April. Another person has shown interest to be trained for full time ministry. This would mean that TTN will soon have 4 disciples in training who want to enter full time ministry. That is just awesome. God is moving in a mighty way.
Thanks for supporting TTN and being part of fulfilling the great commission. It is only through your support that we can continue this ministry and see lives transformed by the power of God.
Lots of love,Arthur Peter & family
