“I will extol the Lord at all times; His praise will always be on my lips. Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt His Name together.” Psalm 34:1, 3.
Praise the Lord for all His goodness! It’s wonderful to see how God moves in all the earth to bring glory to His Name! We are happy to share more blessings again with you!
We recently had a celebration service in Carcar City, Cebu for the seven years’ establishment of the Christian Fellowship Church in Carcar. It was a wonderful and beautiful service with several hundreds of young people and adults in attendance at the beautiful and spacious church there. God moved in a special way in the anointed and joyful worship and the revival in the altar call afterward! Four to five hundred young people came to the front in a very special move of the Holy Spirit as they committed their lives afresh to Him! It is truly refreshing to see God change lives!
Our Christian Fellowship Church Pastors’ Convention was held on May 15-17 at the Dumaguete City church, and again it was a time of precious fellowship with pastors coming from far places in Mindanao Island and Western Negros Island, as w ell as the Eastern Negros province. Our precious pastors gave us rich messages from the Lord to encourage all of us in our Christian lives. The last night of the convention every person in the church came to the front and the Lord moved mightily!
We are seeing the move of God with new growth in the churches. New outreaches are opening up and becoming pioneering works. Churches have been scheduling recent water baptismal services for the new people. It’s a joy to see them lined up ready for baptism! One church this month baptized 51 people who had just accepted the Lord!
We are praising the Lord for so many victories, and we know that you are a part of these! Thank you so much and God bless you!

“Go ye therefore into all the world and make disciples of all nations.” Matt. 2:18
Greetings and blessings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. As we enter this new year the Lord has given us, we honor Him by obeying His Great Commission to carry the Gospel message to the whole world! What an awesome privilege and responsibility! We make it our greatest priority and greatest purpose in life!
Trials will surely face us in the year ahead, but we face with confidence anything that comes our way, trusting in our Wonderful Lord. He will make us able to carry His Word and win souls–our greatest joy and responsibility!
Here in Negros, we have new churches starting up and we know that God is well-pleased with that! Most are mountain churches which are pioneered by men and women of God completely dedicated to establish churches! Some have just put up posts and a roof and are using the building! Some don’t have a roof yet! I am attaching a picture of a pastor in front of his proposed church in Lower Baican, Bayawan, Negros Oriental. With God’s help, we will help this pastor finish his church!
We believe this coming year is going to be a year full of blessing, provision, growth and many souls coming to the Lord! Please pray with us for this! Thank you! God bless you abundantly in this coming New Year!
Yours in Christ,
“Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord all the earth. Sing to the Lord, praise his Name; proclaim his salvation day after day.” Psalm 96:1,2
We had a wonderful Christian Fellowship Church Youth Convention here on April 18-22 with the theme: Revival! The church was full and overflowing with around 500 youth and their pastors! The pastors gave powerful messages from God’s Word in each service! It was a glorious time of sweet fellowship in the Lord and the powerful outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon us! Everyone was filled with the Holy Spirit as the Lord moved in the services! Many were baptized in the Spirit and spoke in tongues, and many also felt a call of God to the ministry! We know that the Lord is calling these young people to be pastors! It was truly an exciting and wonderful time for everyone! We experienced revival and now the revival continues in the churches!
The third night of our convention was the commencement exercises of the Christian Fellowship School of Ministry and we graduated seven young men into the ministry! They had successfully completed their academic courses and one full year of internship working in local churches.
We are looking forward to another great convention with our pastors next month and then a new enrollment in the Bible school by the first week of June. Please pray with us that God will call many young people to the ministry. They will be our pastors of tomorrow!
Again, thank you for your prayers and for being a part of our work here! God bless you!
Christian Fellowship Churches of the Philippines News Update, October 2015
Ephesians 1:3. “Receiving Every Spiritual Blessing in Christ”. This was our theme verse of our October 2015 Semi-annual Christian Fellowship Pastors’ Convention here in Dumaguete City, October 19-21. We were so blessed to see our member pastors again and share precious fellowship with them. Our pastors gave wonderful messages from the Word of God and we enjoyed them so much! The Holy Spirit moved in the evening services with revival and sweet refreshing among the pastors!
We had a good attendance with pastors coming from all areas of the island of Negros; north, south, east and west! Sadly, some pastors were unable to come due to Typhoon Koppu that hit the Philippines and coincided with the dates of our convention. Inter-island ships were cancelled due to the storm, so pastors from Mindanao Island and Siquijor Island were not able to come.
We were happy to hear from the pastors of blessings and revival in their churches, so we praise God for all these things! I attach some photos!
God bless you,
“We give thanks to you, O God, we give thanks, for your Name is near. Men tell of your wonderful deeds.” Psalm 75:1
Greetings in the Name of our Lord Jesus. The Lord is so good to us and we praise Him continually. We are all encouraged to keep on doing the work of the Lord!
We are now in the heavy rains of the Southwest Monsoon season, and these will continue until the first of next year! Right now, we are experiencing a typhoon and another one is on the way! The air is so humid!
Our Bible school is going on and blessed. It’s a joy to teach the young men and women God has called to become pastors. The interns from last year are doing a good job in the places where they are ministering!
Our churches that are are having building repairs are continuing on with their work, although there are delays sometimes because of the rains. The church in Manalongon has finished cementing their flooring, so this is a big victory for them!
The Pulopantao, Jimalalud church is still working on the installation of the trusses and roofing and some days the welders have to postpone the work a little due to rain. We hope in maybe another week or so the roof will be all installed, and we’ll share pictures with you. For now we share a few pictures of this church!
Thank you for sharing in our victories and thank you for your prayers. God bless you!
“Put on the whole armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.” Eph. 6:11. This verse was the theme of our Christian Fellowship Church Pastors’ Convention in Dumaguete City on May 18-21!
What a wonderful time we had with our precious pastors who came from three islands and four provinces to attend! Several pastors came from Zamboanga province in the southern island of Mindanao. The Western Negros pastors hired a cargo truck and came over the high mountains to be here! Pastors came from the northernmost tip of Negros Island and from the southernmost tip! Many of the pastors are serving in far mountainous areas. Some had to walk several miles to get out to the main road where they could catch a bus! Our seven new intern pastors were also present. They are doing a great job in their churches!
It was a time of precious fellowship, encouragement and spiritual growth for all of us. Our anointed and talented lady pastors gave several messages during the convention and we were all so blessed by them! Our speakers gave us wonderful messages from Ephesian chapter six! Then the evening services were times of Holy Spirit revival!
Thank you for your faithful prayers and support for Christian Fellowship pastors and churches! We are “workers together” in His harvest!
God bless you!
