???????????????????????????????Starting last week (Holy Week), Open Eyes Mission partner-trainee and Kagay-an Reformed Church elder-in-training Ernnel Tacandong and I began taking a direct role in establishing, structuring and strengthening the mission in Puerto which is led by another one of our partner-trainees, Brian Ranalan. It was deeply encouraging and edifying for me to worship the Lord with these precious brothers and sisters in Christ. I look forward to working closely with them towards the establishment and growth of their reforming congregation.

???????????????????????????????Please pray for the work of the gospel in Puerto, Cagayan de Oro City. Ask the Holy Spirit to work graciously and powerfully to establish God’s people there upon the sure foundation of the gospel of Jesus Christ’s life, death and resurrection.

???????????????????????????????The joint-service of Kagay-an Reformed Church and Balulang Christian Alliance Fellowship was packed with members of the 2 churches and also with those of a community Bible study led by Open Eyes Mission partner-trainee Ernnel Tacandong. Once again, it was my utmost joy and privilege to minister God’s word to His people.

BY CHRIST’S WOUNDS, GOD’S COVENANT-BREAKING NATION HAS BEEN HEALED

But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed. (Isaiah 53:5)

He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed. (1 Peter 2:24)

Please pray and ask the Lord to continue to grow and prosper the work of gospel in Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines.

???????????????????????????????The Lord blessed our 4th outreach to Haiyan/Yolanda victims-survivors. The 1st leg of our 5-day journey was in Pastrana, Leyte. It was my joy and privilege to visit, fellowship with, minister God’s word to and pray for our brothers and sisters at Christ Baptist Church in the supertyphoon-devastated municipality. Our team also provided for them a substantial amount of church rebuilding assistance, meat packs for each family and a good meal together.

???????????????????????????????To date, the roofs of their church building has been reconstructed (you can view pictures of its previous condition here), but all members of the congregation still live in makeshift structures.

Please continue praying for our Baptist brothers and sisters in Pastrana, Leyte. Ask the Lord to continue to give them much grace and strength.

???????????????????????????????It has been a great joy and privilege for me to have taught and preached the gospel in a whole-day seminar and a worship service in the island of Camiguin. A good percentage of the attendees were clearly receptive to the message of salvation in Christ. There is an urgent need for monthly follow-up outreaches.

Please pray for the Lord’s provision and blessing for our mission team in Cagayan de Oro to respond to this great need.

1980347_768336953184319_251689062_oOur bi-weekly Bible Training classes (via Skype and videos) for Filipino workers in the Middle East continue. It is tremendously encouraging and rewarding for me to see these precious brothers and sisters grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ.

Please remember to pray for them – that the Lord would make them more and more hungry and thirsty for His word. Let us pray for them as the apostle Paul did for the church in Ephesus:

1913269_768258003192214_2020025929_oFor this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you…

New Mission Post

Glimar "Glem" Melo:

Please pray for our new mission post in Consolacion, Cagayan de Oro.

???????????????????????????????Yesterday, we conducted our very 1st mission service in the village of Consolacion, Cagayan de Oro. I preached on Matthew 3:1-2: “Repent Because God’s Kingdom Rule Has Already Begun.” Those who attended were all migrant workers from the province of Zamboanga Sibugay, and were members of a Pentecostal church there. Through Biblical preaching and teaching, we hope to see them become more and more rooted and grounded in the gospel of salvation by grace alone through faith alone because of Jesus Christ alone.

Please pray for Open Eyes Mission trainee and partner Ernnel Tacandong who is tasked to conduct weekly foundational Bible studies for these precious souls. Together, let us ask the Lord to sustain and prosper this pioneering work.
