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!
