Just a short update of blessings from Feb./Mar.

Dear Praying Friends,

As many of you know, my Dad went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, Jan. 21, 2024. I am so glad he knew the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Saviour. Mom asked me to conduct a funeral service for him, the night prior to his burial. Dad served and was honorably discharged after serving many years in the USAF. His military funeral was so excellently done as his brothers at arms and fellow vets bid him farewell. We will surely miss Dad. BUT I know, by the grace of God and because of JESUS, I will see him again, and we will both be worshipping and serving King Jesus for all eternity. The future is bright and the best is yet to come for everyone who repent of sin and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. AMEN!

Pastor Chris and Jenny were enabled by God through Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Brogue, PA to visit with us and to bless us with music and preaching for our 7th year anniversary of our missions-work (church plant) in Tuktukan village, Taguig City. God is good and even after the horrible years of lock down due to the pandemic, God has preserved a strong remnant of baptized disciples who love the Lord, love their church assembly, love the word of God (The King James Bible), and love lost souls. 

Pastor Chris and Jenny were also instrumental in hosting our first-ever Shepherd's Retreat in the Philippines (which is what Mt. Zion Baptist Church, Brogue, PA does in their area) for Pastor friends, Missionaries, and church leaders. The Lord blessed us with 38 participants (most of which are Pastors and their wives). Glory to God! He used us to be a blessing to some of his choice servants.

Below is a video or our Boy's Sunday School class. I was doing a review/game based upon their Bible lesson for the day. It is a joy to see some of these boys learn and retain some Bible truths. PLEASE pray that the Gospel of Jesus Christ would be understood and received by many of our children, young adults, adults, and seniors (really by all - right?!?). It sure is a blessing to be a part of God's work in trying to reach souls for the Master. From the bottom of our hearts, Marcia, W.T., and Joseph and I thank you for your love, prayers, and support. May God bless you in a manner in which only HE can.

I was also enabled and blessed of God to be able to attend a week-long module seminary at Cornerstone Baptist Ministerial School in Quezon City, Philippines (a ministry under Cornerstone Baptist Church, Quezon City - Pastor Jed Raquintan). Both Dr. Thomas Strouse and Dr. Jed Raquintan taught courses and the fellowship with other men (fellow seminarians) were wonderful. I appreciate the love and hospitality of Cornerstone Baptist Church. May the Biblical truths taught be received and implemented in life and ministry work to the glory of God, the salvation of lost souls, and the discipleship of believers into a Biblical, Baptist church. AMEN!
