Update from the Philippines....















Touching The Nations






   Family Picture





 Greetings from the Philippines,


 


It has been a while that I sent an update of what is happening in the Philippines. We are all doing great here in Puerto Princesa City. Children are running and alive and keeping us very busy. Praise the Lord! This past Monday we were able to go to the beach with boys. They love the beach. Playing in the sand and finding crabs, sea stars and this past Monday we even found some jelly fish.... No worries nothing happened. We had a great time at the beach.


 


Now a little update on the ministry. The coming week children will be starting school again. Thanks to your support we were able to give away some school supplies to children that have been coming faithfully to Sunday School. Your help is really appreciated and the children and their parents want to say thank you for all your help and support.


 


Next to this we have also started a choir in our church. About 7-8 people are part of the choir. Although I am maybe not really objective I think the choir does a really good job. Learning a lot as we go along, but it is a true blessing having a choir during our worship service.


 


Things are going well with the 6 students of the discipleship school and church. Many members are feeling that the Lord is getting our heart in the right place. It is not a problem for the Lord to sent a revival to our city, but the problem is us as people. Our heart need to be in the right place before God can sent a revival.


 


Lately our prayer meetings have experienced an increase of attendance. With biggest attendance on Friday evening. About 20 people showed up. I love it when many people show up. It is such a blessing and the presence of the Lord is just wonderful....


 


In closing I would like to thank all the prayer and financial supporters for all your help. As you maybe have noticed our average support level has increased from 50% to almost 55%. Still in need of more support but it is going the right direction. Looking forward to come to TN where some people and pastors have shown interest in the ministry. Praise the Lord! God is just awesome!!!!


 


Thanks again for all your faithful support and continued help. Know that without your help and support we would not have any ministry here in the Puerto Princesa City. Thanks for being part of fulfilling the great commission in the Philippines....


 


Lots of love,


           Arthur Peter
