Report from Rev Reggor Galarpe
Bro. Edsel and I have returned safely from our short visit to Gethsemane (Pangasinan), bringing with us much blessings for a fruitful time spent with Pr Donald and family and our brethren there.
We had a well-attended worship service last Lord’s Day as most of the members, worshippers and contacts came, including Bro Ariel’s (also Sis Ara’s) family who drove for two-and-a-half hours from their hometown in La Union. The Gospel meeting we had in their house last Thursday was also well attended. Praise God!
I am sharing with you some photos taken during our visit. I’m sure our Pr Donald will write a detailed report and share more photos with you.
“Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest” (Luke 10:2).
Report from Pr Donald dela Cruz
Ipraise the Lord for the blessed and fruitful visit of Pastor Reggor and Preacher Edsel in our mission station (21-26 February). Thank God for their joint ministry with me in preaching the Word in our 4 gospel outreaches in Binloc, Binday, Tebag and San Fernando. Praise God for bringing people to hear and learn from the Bible. Pastor Reggor, Pr Edsel and I took turns to preach.
Praise God for the safety and strength throughout that week. We were travelling every day, leaving immediately after breakfast and returning only in the night. Thank God for giving us strength. On the Lord’s Day, our brethren from San Fernando also came to worship with us, where Pastor Reggor also administered the Holy Communion. Thank God for a well-attended worship service of 51 adults / youths and 18 children. Incidentally, Bro Ariel (from San Fernando) stayed on for the night in the mission station to have fellowship with us.
I thank the Lord for giving me wisdom on how to lead the brethren in many practical aspects of their growing relationship with Christ, especially in the area of prayer. I am very happy that I can see improvement in the response of the brethren towards praying after a few weeks. In fact, last Lord’s Day, we started the worship service by dividing into groups and praying for one another.
Se Jin and Jesher will be away in Korea until 5 April. Please pray that the Lord will grant them safety and enable them to be a good testimony for Christ.
