Mission Trip Update

We got back home safe and sound by God’s grace.  Our team (Kingsley Family, Tanya Dressler, Katy Brooks and Carolynn Porterfield) came home at different times but it was fulfilling to do God’s will by showing love and care to the people around us in the Philippines. These were the  things we did:

  • Treated over 1000 patients through medical and dental missions in 4 different places in Manila, Batangas and Bohol
  • Taught Ladies Bible Studies in 5 congregations
  • Attended Family Day and taught the Ladies and Men and kids
  • Philip preached at 6 congregations during their Sunday worship
  • We did VBS and feeding programs in 2 different congregations
  • Distributed toys, school supplies, and clothes in 8 different locations as an outreach of the churches
  • Taught songs to the kids in 4 tutorial classes at different congregations.
  • Helped in giving groceries to fire victims

We thank God for the success of our mission in the Philippines. We also thank those who partnered with us through your financial donations, prayers, and all the things you sent that we gave away to those in need.

Twinville and Friendship Road Churches of Christ

The Twinville and Friendship Road Churches have been busy doing a lot of outreach to the community and beyond. They had their 12th year graduation of the Tutorial classes for ages 3 to 5 years old and also started their Vacation Bible School right after graduation. Through the new outreach in Cupang, Marikina, many people have been saved. They started a new church there in February and people have been responding to the gospel presented to them. A new brother in Christ, Lemar Mendiola, decided to wash his sins away in baptism. He has been faithfully attending the Bible study there since. They also recently gave dozens of slippers to those in need, especially the children there. The Cupang outreach is in a very poor neighborhood and they are happy to receive the many blessings given to them.

Please continue to pray for the churches and the outreaches that the churches are doing in the Marikina area. To God be the glory!

Calamba Church

Thank God for another graduation day for the kids at the Tutorial program in Calamba Church of Christ! The parents and kids were so thankful for the outreach that the church has been doing for them. Bro. Jonathan is still busy teaching and equipping the church. They have weekly Bible Studies and outreaches like visitation of the sick and taking care of members of the church. Please pray for them as they continue to be a blessing in the Calamba, Laguna area.

Sta. Lucia Church

Sta. Lucia Church in East Ortigas, Pasig City is striving hard to be strong. Last year their preacher left for another opportunity of employment outside the Manila area. There are also members that left due to employment or changes in their family situation. They are struggling but continue to be strong in their faith and work for the Lord. Please pray for this church to grow in Christ as they face trials of many kinds.

Dreamland Ministries

The ministry in Dreamland is flourishing! They coordinate many retreats and camps there to strengthen the brethren in different churches. They recently held a couples camp, and preachers, singles, ladies and men’s retreats. Aside from that, they outreach to the community through tutorial programs, medical missions and Bible studies. Bro. Jun stays busy continuing the work there with his wife Chona. We thank them for their untiring service to the Lord in that part of the mountain.

Payatas Church

Payatas outreach is growing as Bro. Felipe and Sister Clarita Cariaga maintain the outreach there. They are continuing with their Bible Studies, sewing and cooking classes, teaching the children Christian values, and teaching the students who are wanting to be preachers someday. Continue to pray for them as they continue to grow this ministry and that people will respond to the gospel as they outreach to this community.
