October 2012 Third Quarter Christian Fellowship Church News Update
“Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth; worship the Lord with gladness, come before him with joyful songs.” Ps. 100:1,2
It’s a joy to worship the Lord with joyful hearts and we offer them up to Him! We’re happy to share victories once more!
We are always praising the Lord for the good things He is doing in our Negros Island churches. We have new pioneering churches in Busay, Liko and Danao in the Guihulngan area about 100 kilometers north of here. Busay and Danao are mountain villages and can be reached by a dirt bike and then walking the last few miles. Only the village of Liko is accessible by car since it’s along the beach. Thankfully, the owner of the land donated the church lots for Busay and Danao. The members built wood plank buildings with tin roofs as their places of worship. Thank God they are encouraged and strong in serving God! Now they’re reaching out to win souls!
Villages in southern Negros Island are also being penetrated to pioneer new churches. Baican and Cansiang are two mountain villages in southern Negros that have newly pioneered works.
Our faithful pastor in the south district is conducting a monthly Bible training in the Danao village church, deep in the mountains. Lay workers attend there for additional Bible training.
The Christian Fellowship School of Ministry here in Dumaguete City is going on and we’re happy to invest in training these young people who will be our future pastors. In addition to their regular classes, they have been enjoying special speakers from time to time who encourage and strengthen them in their calling. May God equip them for the ministry! Amen!
We’ll be having our National Semi-annual Pastors Convention hosted by the Christian Fellowship Church in Binalbagan, in western Negros, on October 15-17. To reach there, we have to travel over the high mountain range that divides Negros Island into east and west. The mountain road going there has steep, drop-away cliffs and landslides caused by the heavy monsoon rains. But the trip offers a great panoramic view of the lush, green mountains! We’re believing for a great convention there!
Please see the latest attached picture of our Bible students!
Thank you for your prayers for all the ministry here. God bless you!
