Friendship Road Church Report:

3m-dec-1

Brother Steve is having health issues and has had extended stays in the hospital. Metro Manila Ministries and the Friendship Road church of Christ are asking for prayers for Brother Steve. If you would like to help with his medical expenses, please donate through Metro Manila Ministries and designate the donation as Steve’s medical expenses. His health issues are ongoing and the expenses for treatment are an issue as health insurance is not available to assist.

Brother Danni’s hearing aids donated by friends have quit working. Danni would like to replace them but currently does not have the funds. The cost of new units are approximately $150.00. If you would like to help Brother Danni hear again, please donate to Metro Manila Ministries and designate the money for Danni’s hearing aids.

Through the health issues for Steve and Danni not being able to hear, this has not slowed down their ministry work for the Lord. They report several baptisms since our last report, including Angelo Igagamao, Angelica Dasalla and Jinet Luyun. The last two are parents of students in the Twinville Tutorial Center. Please pray for our new brother and sisters and praise God for our new family.

They also report participation of the students of the Tutorial Center participating in “United Nations Day” in the city of Marikina. The students wore costumes from nations around the world. Furthermore, the students have completed their 2nd quarter assessment exams. Danni reports the students tested well and many are counting to 100 and reading two and three letter words.

Monthly door knocking campaign and tracts distribution is ongoing and the results are encouraging for the churches. Reports of new Bible studies are very encouraging. After the last distribution, brethren from different congregations, including Twinville and Friendship Road, met together for a fellowship lunch and encouragement. Please pray for the new Bible study students and the success of the campaign.
