Brother Jonathan is very busy working at Calamba, Calawan and Dreamland.  He continues to encourage the young brothers and sisters at the Calawan congregation while ministering to our church family at Calamba.  Tutorial classes at Calamba are going well with a good group of students.  Meanwhile, the adult parents of the students are going through Bible studies during class sessions, learning about our Father in heaven.  Enrollment for the tutorial classes and the orientation went well in June.

Meanwhile, brother Jonathan attended the Tanicil Lectureships with several other congregations.  Attendance of 50 at the lectureships provided encouragement for all.

Work at Dreamland continues as they develop the land and utilize the facilities for events.  Young brothers and sisters attended the youth retreat at Dreamland and were greatly encouraged all the while being trained in the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Please continue to pray for Jonathan and his work as well as his family as he continues to raise his children.

                             2016 Mission Trip

On January 8, 2016, 12 members of the mission team left the United States for the Philippines.  The temission1mission2am members consisted of Barrion, Tina, Emily and James Palmer, Louise Williams, Remy and Justine Kingsley and Tim, Sharon, Linsday, Lauren and Luke O’Neal.  After some difficulty in flights from the Alabama team members, all arrived in Manila.  The trip, which lasted just over two (2) weeks, was filled with opportunities by God to encourage, teach, serve and show Christ in the lives in the metro Manila area.  It was also an opportunity to explore the new ministry of Dreamland, which is property purchased that will eventually be used to help support preachers in the southern Luzon area.  God also provided the opportunity for the 1st Annual Metro Manila Family Retreat held at Camp Jabez.  Over 100 people attended the 2 days seminar learning God’s plan for the family and the family of God.   During the two week trip, the team was able to worship with the body of Christ in the Manila area including the Twinville church of Christ, Friendship Road church of Christ, Manila church of Christ, Cianta church of Christ and the Sta. Lucia church of Christ.  We rejoice with the Twinville church of Christ in their new location that will be able to suit the work in the Balubad area of Marikina.   The team safely returned to the United States by January 24, 2016 and are already praying for and making plans for the 2017 trip.  In all things, the mission team prays for God’s will to be done.  We ask that all who are partners with Metro Manila Ministries please pray for the work both here in the United States and in the Philippines.  Specifically, our prayer request is to ask for God’s guidance as the team begins to prepare for the arrival of Philip Kingsley in 2017.

 

                       Twinville/Balubad Church Report

 

Report prepared by Danni DeVera.  Partners in ministry with Rhecel & Mimi Allonar

 

Many exciting events and blessings are occurring at the Twinville church of Christ.  Metro Manila Ministries in partnership with the brothers & sisters at the Twinville church of Christ are excited to announce the new location of the church’s building.  The new location is larger and in better condition than the previous location which will allow the church to better serve the needs of the people in Balubad area.  The church, in partnership with Metro Manila Ministries, raised the funds to complete the roof addition to the church’s meeting location.  The buildings on the property are used for the Tutorial Pre-School and classrooms.

 

Among the blessings from God for the Twinville church is the addition in baptism of Junel Adriano (age 12) and Rosemarie Estrellado, who is the mother of Sister Angela Estrellado, as well as Christian Ferreras Jacob and Angelo Ferreras Jacob.  Praise be to our father God for the 4 new family members.  Please pray for their walk with God.

 

The Parents Bible School Program (PBSP) is ongoing with the teacher of adult parents of the tutorial students as well as any adults wanting to study the word.  They were blessed over the past several months to have guest speakers including Prissy Sellers, Remy Kingsley, Barrion Palmer and Tim O’Neal.  Souls are being led to Christ through this program.

 

The pre-school children of the Tutorial Center Program continues to teach children and prepare them for public school.  The teaching principles are taught using the word of God and his commands.  The prayer and desire of the Twinville congregation and the Tutorial Program is to become self-supporting and recognized by the Department of Education as a private school.  Please pray for the children (and the teachers) as they complete final examinations and graduation.  God is truly using this program for His kingdom and the spreading of His word!

 

Other programs at Twinville include Youth Programs, Feeding programs and Street Evangelism.  Please pray for these programs and the Twinville church as they minister Balubad.

The body of Christ at Friendmission6ship Road continues to be a blessing to the people in the area.  They have door knocking campaigns every two (2) weeks and follow up with contacts with Bible studies in their homes and at the building.  They continue to challenge each other to be involved in outreach and growth of the congregation.  They covet prayers for growth spiritually as a body and holding each other accountable.  They have dedicated themission9mselves to unity as a body and as leadership.

 

They are currently looking to fill the need of more Bibles for their members and for outreach purposes.  Metro Manila Ministries is assisting with this request and is accepting donations to help purchase Bibles in the Philippines to distribute not only at Friendship Road church, but other churches as well.  Can you partner with us in this challenge?

Report prepared by Jonathan Faldas.  Partners include Jun Patricio

 

The mission8Calamba churchmission7 of Christ and brother Faldas is a recent addition and blessing to Metro Manila Ministries.  The recent mission trip renewed past friendships and ministry works with the Calamba congregation and outreach programs at Calauan phase.  This is an exciting time at Calamba and Calauan congregations.  Metro Manila Ministries is blessed to partner again with Brother Jonathan and Brother Jun to spread God’s word in these locations.

 

New projects include Bible studies at Mayapa Burgundy and worship services at these locations.  Brother Jonathan remains very busy leading worship services every Saturday and every Sunday at Mayapa (7 am to 9 am), Calamba City (9:30 am to 12 pm) and Calauan (3 pm to 5 pm).  Please pray for Brother Jonathan as he leads the services and for the safety of his travels.  Also located at Calamba is the children’s tutorial program teaching pre-school children and preparing them for elementary school by using God’s word as the foundation.

 

Jonathan is also actively involved with Brother Jun in the Dreamland Project.  Please pray for this new ministry that will help support local ministers in the Batangas area.  Camp Dreamland is scheduled for March 23-26, 2016 for young men to camp in the “jungle” and learn to have a relationship with God and Jesus Christ.

 

Metro Manila Ministries, in partnering with Brother Jonathan and Brother Jun, are assisting with funds to help offset fuel and travel costs.  Would you partner with us financially in helping this ministry?

 

Brother Jonathan is requesting prayers for good health, safety and above all the people in Calamba City, Calauan and Mayapa as God’s word is spread as well as Dreamland and Camp Dreamland and the children’s Tutorial Program.  Metro Manila Ministries is asking for prayers for Brother Jonathan and his family due to the passing of his beautiful wife.  Brother Jonathan continues to work hard in the ministry while mourning the passing of his wife and helping his children move forward.

 

 

                                               Manila Church Report

 

Report prepared by Felipe and Clarita Cariaga

 

Many exciting events are occurring with the Manila church.  God is blessing their work in so many ways.  Many are aware of the ongoing, long time work with the Manila School of Evangelism (MSE).  This program trains and places young men in the ministry to preach & teach at local congregations throughout the Philippines.  While this is their most well-known ministry, it is by no means the only work God has placed on their hearts.  Other works include MSE extension classes located at Payatas, livelihood programs in both locations, outreach to the elderly, feeding programs, dental programs and medicine purchasing for the elderly known as Good Samaritan.

 

The mission team in January was blessed to visit the work at Payatas.  This is a somewhat new ministry that continues to grow and expand due to God’s grace and provisions.  The building is complete at the location which allows them to store supplies and work securely.  Ongoing works at Payatas include extension classes for MSE to train young men in the ministry, feeding of the children in the Payatas area (this is an extremely poor area in which many children are malnourished), elderly care (including the Good Samaritan program), dental programs, etc.  Prayers are coveted for this new work.

 

Brother and Sister Cariaga as well as the Manila church are actively involved at the Tondo church of Christ and Sucol church of Christ in the Laguna area.

 

Metro Manila Ministries is actively assisting the Manila church in raising funds for teachers for the children’s training programs at Payatas, 5-6 sewing machines for the livelihood program training and chairs & tables for the new location at Payatas.  Would you be willing to financially assist Metro Manila Ministry in this area?

 

The Cariaga’s and the Manila church are asking for prayers for the workers at all locations, outreach programs, students enrolled at MSE and training classes for children, the senior citizens they are reaching out to and studying with and ongoing Bible studies.

Philippine Mission 

Another blessed month has passed and truly our Lord never ceased to bless all our work
as long as we work from the heart and give our life to Him.

Parents Bible School Program

The PBSP or Parents Bible School Program creates partnership with the Church…they
are active every time we have church activities and some of them are regularly
attending Church services every Sunday. We are all praying that some of them will
obey God’s Word…we believe that we need to plant and water them and God will give
the increase.

Bible School for Young Boys/Girls

Our students was also trained to do an actual evangelism by going house to house tracts
distribution, they are now active in helping on our monthly feeding program and even
go to other places help to door knocking evangelism….they also studied how to sing
correctly under bro. Elhmir Saison.

Door Knocking/Church Leaders Metro-wide Fellowship

Church Leaders from other churches of Christ in Metro Manila held their monthly
meeting at Friendship Rd. Church of Christ chapel in Marikina City. They all go out to
seek the lost together with some door knockers…and it was great to see that all brethren
joined together in house to house campaign even rain pours heavily…but God is good
He makes the rain stops.

Tutorial Center Ministry

Our Children in tutorial centers are now ready for the coming examination on the month
of December, some of them can read phrases already and it was a great development
considering that majority of them are only 5 years old. Our kids really enjoy tutorial
center and they love to study here and they are always excited on Sunday school.This
coming December they will have fantasy party and all of them are very excited.

Baptism

The Lord added another soul in His kingdom, Joma decided to obey Jesus in baptism
after learning the importance of obeying God’s Word. He thought faith is enough for
one to secure his salvation. We are all rejoicing on his obedience.

Feeding Program

The Twinville Church of Christ decided to have monthly feeding program in order to
plant on the mind of souls that the Lord’s love them and that the Lord used the church
to show His love to all. The brethren participated on this ministry by giving their
contribution financially in preparing food for the program. One good thing in this
monthly program, we can import the tutorial parents to help us in cooking food for the
kids.

Sunday School

Sister Eileen showed her zeal and love in teaching the children during Sunday
school…she created many activities for the kids after reading Bible stories. She even
teach Sunday school at Friendship Road every 2nd and fourth Sunday.

HOME Bible Study

Our regular home Bible study with the brethren in Balubad phase 1 continues and was
able to invite some souls in the neighborhood to study the Bible. We will have tracts
distribution after our Bible study.

As we close the year, we would like to say thank you first of all to God Almighty who is always there to guide the ministry. We give glory and honor to Him as we c ontinue to share His Word to others. We would like to thank each and everyone who untirelessly help us in every way they can to make it going and serve in whatever capacity they can. God bless each of you as we spread His love to those who need Him most.

Activities

Wichita, Kansas:

In September, our team went to Bluestarr Church of Christ in Claremore, Oklahoma. We presented to the elders and the  missions committee about the work that we do in the Philippines. We served some Filipino dinner and showed some powerpoint. They enjoyed the event.  In October Metro Manila Ministries had a fundraising at the Wichita Asian Festival. We sold items made from the Philippines and Filipino desserts. It was a successful event with many who donated their time and effort while Remy was away.

Manila, Philippines:

World Grace and Helping Hands, Inc. continues to have seminars about how to become servants of God. They hold it at Manila School of Evangelism. They also have another outreach in Payatas church of Christ, a really poor community in Quezon City. The preacher died this year and the work there is continuing through his son. WGHH is trying to establish programs so the church will be revived and help the community through feeding program, livelihood and Bible studies.

The Twinville church of Christ is still continuing their effort in reaching out to the community through the Tutorial program. They have many activities the last few months that people around the area know about the church. They are training young people to become leaders of tomorrow and teaching Stunday school to the children. During the week the workers go to the depressed area to teach the children. Please pray for the continued success of the work there and the workers have more strength in reaching out.

What is Ahead:

Dale, Remy, Jasper and Justine together with a group from Missouri will be going on a mission trip in January. They will be there on different times to do ladies retreat, teach the children, have Bible studies and  help out witht the needs in the churches there. They are asking for your prayers as they go and share God’s love to others. If you want to help out with the ministry, you can send your taz deductible contribution through Metro Manila Ministries. Thank you so much for your untiring love and support.
