Our MZBMP Singing Group

 After a number of weeks of going over this beautiful SAB arrangement, and learning about some principles of godly music, our singing group was able to share this testimony of praise in music to our guests and visitors at the church this morning. Praise God for willing and surrendered hearts singing and making melody unto the Lord!

Praise God for our 6th Year Church Anniversary

 Dear Praying Friends,

First of all, we are praising God for allowing us to celebrate our 6th year church anniversary. It is an honor and a privilege to serve the Lord Jesus Christ here in Taguig City. The Lord’s golden candlestick is shining brightly here in Tuktukan as we are also affecting a few of our surrounding villages for the Lord. We are very blessed to see a robust return of our Children’s Sunday School ministry touching an average of about 60 boys and girls each week. Please pray, as we observe that the window of opportunity to reach the young people dwindles as they enter their teen years. Some young people are desiring to own their own Bibles & are bringing their Bibles to church after they receive it. Some who are interested have started attending not only our regular Sunday services, but also, our Wednesday evening service. We must reach them while they are still young, and by God’s grace we will do our best to bring them to a saving knowledge of Christ. We are also seeing many people (young & old) taking steps of growth in the Lord. Praise God for the victories! Thank you, dear friends, for your fervent love and prayers. As the world gets worse and worse, may we continue to shine the glorious Gospel of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ     because He alone is the answer to this hurting and rotting world of sin. Revelation 22:20b, “...Even so, come, Lord Jesus.”

We praise the Lord that three precious ladies were ready to receive Believer's Baptism and were added to the church in Tuktukan. God is so good!

Guest Speaker Sunday (02/26/23)

What a blessing it was to have Dr. Jed Raquintan (Pastor of Cornerstone Baptist Church [CBC] in Quezon City) deliver God's word to us, and the brethren, and guests at our mission work in Tuktukan, Taguig City, Philippines. Sis. Eden, his precious wife was able to accompany him. We praise God for their testimony and love for the Lord and His work. Dr. Raquintan will be celebrating 30 years of being the under-shepherd of CBC. Their church will be celebrating their 40th year anniversary in April. We thank God for CBC which is a precious golden candlestick for the Lord in Quezon City. Dr. Raquintan brought the word of God and you can hear his preaching and teaching ministry via our sermon audio webpage here: - his messages are in Tagalog & English (which is actually called "Taglish").

Dear Praying Friends,

God is good. Our time with Dr. David Smith (Pastor of Community Baptist Church, Coopersburg, PA) was truly blessed of God. Many of our people expressed spiritual growth decisions as a result of hearing him preach God's Word on our Wed. Evening service (02/01/23). You can hear his preaching/teaching here. It is called: "How to Keep from Backsliding." What a tremendous reminder for all of us. We have already seen a few keep their commitments and decisions, and for this we are rejoicing in the Lord. Anytime we hear the word of God, we ought to expect reproofs, rebukes, and exhortations which propel us to make changes that are pleasing to God. This night was no exception. Please pray that souls would get saved, and lives would change as we continue to be exposed to Biblical truths through the faithful witness and speaking ministries of our special guests and faithful preachers here in our mission work at Tuktukan, Taguig.

Another special prayer request would be the potential mission work in East Rembo, Makati (a neighboring village and city). Please pray that we may meet and conduct some effective Bible studies with many individuals and that it may blossom into another mission work. We so desire to see churches planted for the honor and glory of God. Pray that people here would get saved, and surrendered to believer's baptism, and faithful church attendance. Pray for evangelistic efforts to be blessed, and for discipleship ministries to take off. Pray for God to open many hearts and we shall give Him honor, glory, and praise for the work that only He can do.

Your missionary because of JESUS!

A Wonderful Day of Special Bible Education

Dear Praying Friends,

Thank you for taking the time to pray. By God's grace we were able to have a wonderful time of fellowship and 5 hours of intense preaching/teaching in the Word of God. Dr. Smith's flight was delayed, and so I asked if Dr. Raquintan would be able and willing to take the morning sessions, and thankfully, he did. Our people were edified, and about eight pastors and some of their people who were in attendance were also edified.
