 Benito Pacleb – Goes Home to the Arms of Jesus
Hello, everyone.  I just want to be sure you have heard–my husband Benito Pacleb passed away into the arms of Jesus on Tuesday, August 9,  2016 here at home with me beside his bed.  His passing was so peaceful and quiet.  It was just leaving this world and entering the next, to be with the Lord forever.  He has run the race, kept the course, and surely has achieved many rewards for his lifelong labors.  He was a crusade evangelist, a pastor, Bible teacher, church planter and an inspiration to many in the ministry.  In 1970 Benito and I co-founded the Christian Fellowship Church of the Philippines and we have established many churches.  For everything God has done, we give Him glory!

“After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, He was taken up into heaven and He sat at the right hand of God.  Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed His Word by the signs that accompanied it.”   — Mark 16:19, 20
     Praise the Lord that after two thousand years, He is still speaking, the disciples are still going out and preaching and the Lord is still working with them, confirming His Word!  It’s so wonderful to be used by the Lord to do His works and proclaim Him as Lord!  We’re so thankful for the many Filipino pastors who are doing such a fine work in their pastoral and evangelistic ministries.
     We continue to hear reports of the strong move of the Lord in different places, with revival breaking out and churches growing.  That is all we ask from the Lord!
     I have attached a few pictures of our new church construction in the village of Emporium (meaning “market”), in the far mountains of northeastern Negros Island.  The congregation there has been existing for many years.  Now their former old building became dilapidated, so they are building a new church.  It is a very steep and isolated place, but is accessible by four-wheel drive vehicles. Some motorcycles are able to reach the village, but some the road is dangerous for them.  The construction of the new church began recently with the laying of the foundation and putting up the posts and beam.  All the materials have to be trucked in from the town far down on the coast.  Even water has to be hauled in from a spring source, carrying it on a motorcycle in water cans!  Please pray for the completion of this church building with pastoral house.  A newly graduated pastor from our Bible school is assigned there and is doing a great job!
   The Bible school opened this June 6 for the new school year 2016-17.  Thank God for the young men and women God called to study here in the School of Ministry.  Upon finishing their academic studies, they’ll be pastors out in the field!

   Thank you for your prayers for all the ongoing ministries.  You are a part of what God is doing here!  God bless you!
   Yours in Christ,
