“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,
Rochester Hills Family Worship Center loves to support this ministy!
“We give thanks to you, O God, we give thanks, for your Name is near. Men tell of your wonderful deeds.” Psalm 75:1
What a privilege it is to tell men of the wonderful deeds of our Lord! We are rejoicing, as always, in the good things of the Lord.
We hear reports from our branch pastors of recent water baptisms, new people attending the outreaches and young people committing to serve the Lord. The new daughter churches continue to grow.
We held our northern Negros Island district fellowship in the Christian Fellowship Church of Jimalalud,Negros Oriental, this month. The district pastors with their delegates attended the one day fellowship.
It was a good time of fellowship, encouragement and pressing closer to the Lord. We are happy for the good participation of the area pastors. The church was full! We were all so blessed with the moving of the Holy Spirit among us. I attach a few photos of this service.
The branch churches will all be celebrating their special Christmas “Thanksgiving” services this month. It’ll be a very busy time!
We join together to wish you and yours a wonderful Christmas season!
Yours in the Love of the Lord!

As women all across the world, we aspire to become everything we were created and designed to be. It allows us to be original in all facets of our creativity. Its amazing when we can thin…

“Oh, Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your Name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens!”
Psalm 1: Greetings in the Name that is most majestic and glorious, our Lord God!
Thank the Lord for all His goodness in our lives! It’s an awesome privilege to serve Him! We pray you, also, are richly blessed.
I have been privileged to attend the Thanksgiving service at our branch church in Campuyo, Manjuyod, recently. As always, it was a happy time of fellowship and blessing in the Word of God. Some pastors from branch churches also attended. This church has been established many years ago
Our Semi-Annual Christian Fellowship Church convention was held on October 17-20, and was hosted by the Manalongon church. This church has a big new building, and was able to accommodate the pastors coming from all over Negros Island! It was a wonderful time of fellowship and good messages of encouragement for all the pastors! Everyone felt the joy of precious fellowship.
The members of the Manalongon church are very involved in reaching out to win souls. Besides Bible studies, they reach the local barrios with child evangelism, and this outreach is growing fast.
Our church construction in the village of Emporium is going on. The welders have been putting up the steel trusses in preparation for fastening the corrugated iron roofing. But their work has been slowed by the daily heavy rains that start at 11:00 and rain for the rest of the day, making it too dangerous to use the welding machine. Hopefully, the welding work will soon be done! I attach some photos which appear blurry due to the mist and fog that lingers in the air.
Our second semester classes in the Bible school will resume on October 31, and will run through March 2017. Thank you for your prayers for the School of Ministry!
God bless you!

We see continual growth among the churches, as established churches are strengthened and new daughter churches are opened! We are always inspired to win souls and disciple them in serving the Lord. Our senior pastors are doing well and the newly graduated pastors and interns from the Bible school are also doing great. I enjoy visiting the branch churches during their fellowship meetings and enjoy the sweet fellowship.
Our church in Tagpo, Bais, is located high in the northern mountains of this province. The church there has been established for a long time and it stands as a lighthouse for the Gospel there. One of our district supervisors visited Tagpo recently. He was blessed by his visit there and he saw that the congregation has made an effort to build a larger building to accommodate the people. The old building is made of wood, but the church has started putting up a larger building of cement posts and beams. Construction materials are becoming more expensive, and are even more costly in the mountain areas because they have to be trucked up to the area. The new building needs steel trusses and galvanized iron roofing sheets, and also cement walls. Please pray for the financial needs to finish this larger church! I attach pictures of the site.
Our new branch church in Manalongon, Sta Catalina, will host our semi-annual pastors’ convention on October 17-20. This church is a center of fellowship for the local churches in four municipalities in southern Negros. We’re looking forward to a great convention there! I also attach a picture of the church.
Thank you for all your prayers and love gifts for the ministry here. We’re so pleased we can be “workers together” for the Lord! God bless you!

“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.” Psalm 92:1,2
Greetings in the Name of the Lord. As always, it is a joy to serve the Lord and we trust you are blessed as we are. We have our district fellowship meetings each month in our north, south, east and west districts! The Lord is blessing these meetings; the pastors are encouraged and revived and the congregations, too! Each month a different church hosts the fellowship. I was blessed to attend the Lodgoron, Ayungon, fellowship about two hours drive up the coast. This little village church is situated along the highway, but up on a cliff overlooking the road! We had a wonderful revival there! Everyone came forward for prayer after the message, and the Lord met us there! Afterward, we all enjoyed a nice potluck lunch, which the members brought. The pastor and his wife there have three teenage children! They have outreaches far from the church and they have always been going there, just walking over the boulders. I was so blessed to give them a good motorcycle, so they no longer have to walk! Praise the Lord! I am attaching pictures.
As you may know, Pastor Benito Pacleb, my husband, passed on to his heavenly reward on August 9. After a lingering illness, he passed away here in our home and I was at his bedside. He so peacefully left this life and entered to the next life prepared by the Lord. He had a lifetime of very fruitful ministry in evangelism and church planting. Thank you so much, everyone, for your prayers, love gifts, and words of comfort. They meant so much to me. Our three sons who live in Houston, Texas, were here to attend the vigil and burial. Now we continue all the ministries with God’s great blessings!
God bless you more abundantly in the love of the Lord!

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!

“Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation!” Psalm 95:1
It is a joy to serve God and continually feel His blessing and abiding Presence! God is so good, all the time! We are happy to greet you and share more victories that the Lord is doing here in the Philippines.
We had our annual Christian Fellowship Pastors’ Convention here in Dumaguete City on May 16-19. It was a good time of refreshing and blessing with our local pastors giving wonderful anointed messages from the Word! The attendance was very good with many of our pastors coming from far places, Eastern Negros and Western Negros and the provinces of Zamboanga del Norte and Zamboanga del Sur in Mindanao Island. We were so happy to see our dear pastors again and it was great to hear their news of God’s blessing in their ministries. Some of them have been with our Fellowship for 35 years! They are hard-working and faithful pastors, pioneering and holding good, strong churches! Thank God for them!
Our new Bible school interns were also present, and shared victories in their new ministries. We are so proud of them!
The Christian Fellowship School of Ministry will have the enrollment for the new school year on June 4 and classes will begin June 6!
I attach a photo of the seven graduates who marched at the Commencement Exercises on April 20! They have finished their internship and now they are holding churches!
I also attach photos of the youth convention with the nice revival we had! The Lord is continuing this revival!
As you may know, on May 9 the Philippines had its national election. Thank God for a safe and peaceful election. Davao Mayor Rodrigo Duterte was elected the new president! May God use him to do many good things for our nation!
Thank you for all your prayers and faithful support. God bless you more!
In the Love of the Lord,
Sis June Pacleb
