“It is good to praise the Lord, and make music to your Name, O Most High; to proclaim your love in the morning and your faithfulness at night.” Ps 92:1,2.
     Praise the Lord for His love and faithfulness to His people and for all the good things He is doing among us!  It’s a joy to serve him!
     We are so happy to train our young people in the Christian Fellowship School of Ministry to prepare them for a ministry of pastoring and church planting.  We see in them a deep commitment to future ministry.  They are attending services and activities in our Dumaguete City church and the Sibulan church.  They are gaining experience in different areas of ministry including Bible teaching, outreaches, and music and worship.  Thank you for your prayers for them!
     We are also happy for the four branch Bible training centers, located in four districts of Negros Island and Cebu Island: Binalbagan, Carcar, Banay-banay and Dumaguete City.  These centers give basic Bible teaching for lay-pastors and church workers.
     Our graduates from the School of Ministry last year are already pioneering churches in Campuyo, Manjuyod and Poblacion Siaton.  The Campuyo church is feeling revival since our new pastor took over.  Two young men from this congregation are students of the School of Ministry!  This month the church is constructing a roof for the pastor’s kitchen!  They will use galvanized, corregated iron roofing sheets.
     In Siaton, we are helping to rent a place for services, and we have provided plastic chairs for the services!  The new pastor there is working hard to evangelize and several families are now gathering.
     Hopefully, by next letter, I’ll have some pictures to share of some of these different outreaches.  For now, I attach recent photos of Pastor Benito and myself.  Again, thank you so much for all your prayers and support!
     God bless you!
