“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 Church, December 2015 News Update

“Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.”  Luke 2:14
     It’s the time of year again that we celebrate our wonderful Savior!  All our Christian Fellowship Churches have their “Thanksgiving Celebrations” this month, so it’s a very busy time!
     I attended the thanksgiving celebration of our Christian Fellowship Church in the town of Sta Catalina and we had a wonderful time of joyful worship to God and sweet fellowship with the believers!  The church was overflowing with people, not only from the local church but also from three other neighboring branch churches.  Everyone was so excited to share the whole afternoon with worshiping and praising God and hearing the precious Word of God!  The pastor there worked so hard to prepare everything and cook a wonderful banquet for us!  They prepared two big pigs, roasted over hot coals on an open fire!  The people also brought food they had prepared.  It was a celebration of Jesus!
     We have recently put up a good cement wall around the whole property!  Thank God!  I attach a few photos taken at the occasion.  Thank you so much for your prayers for the work here!
    Many blessings this holiday season!

November 2015 Christian Fellowship News Update

November 2015 Christian Fellowship News Update

“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!”  Psalms 92:1, 2
   We praise the Lord and proclaim His love and faithfulness continually!  It’s a joy to share once more some of our blessings here.
   The second semester at the School of Ministry started on November 2 with seven students preparing for the ministry, including two new enrollees this semester!  One of the new students is already a church worker and is from our Manalongon church in the south of Negros Island.  The other student is from our church in the town of Barili, in northern Cebu Island, quite a long trip by bus and inter-island ship!  We see nice potential in all these students and we are happy to mold them into being future full-time pastors.  Please see their group picture that is attached.
   We are happy for all our branch churches in our southern and northern Negros districts.  Every month they hold a District Fellowship Meeting where all the Christian Fellowship area churches can attend.  A recent gathering was held in the Culipapa church on the southern tip of Negros Island.  Several of the area churches were able to attend.  It was a wonderful time of refreshing in the Holy Spirit,with encouragement and joy in fellowship!  The little Culipapa church was started long ago and the believers there are so steadfast in spite of hardship. They are strong in the Lord and they are encouraged and full of joy in serving the Lord!  Please pray for them!  Attached photos show the recent fellowship there.
   Special services are scheduled for all our branch churches this coming December and I’ll be traveling to visit and speak at some of these “Thanksgiving Celebrations”!  I’ll be speaking at one of our mountain churches the day after Christmas!  Hopefully, the dry weather we’re having will hold up until then, so traveling up on the steep mountain trail will not be so dangerous!
   Thank you for your prayers!
   We love you in the Lord,
   Sis June Pacleb

“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!

Christian Fellowship Church of the Philippines February 2015

“Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers.  But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.”  Psalm 1:1, 2. 
How precious it is to walk in the way of the Lord and delight in His Law! 
     Last January 31 we celebrated the first year’s anniversary of our new pioneering work in Siaton, Negros Oriental!  This is still a pioneering work with just four families attending.  However, these families are committed in serving the Lord and they enjoyed the anniversary service so much!  After the lively praise and worship time, some of the people gave their testimonies–some with tears–of what the Lord had done for them!  Then others offered special songs before hearing the Word of God.  I spoke on Isaiah’s call in the book of Isaiah chapter 6, when the Lord asked who will go for Him and Isaiah responded, Lord, here am I, send me!  I challenged the people to commit to serving God.  Everyone was refreshed and renewed in their decisions to work for God!  I attach a few pictures of the group, the worship leaders and the pioneer workers!
 
     Thank you for your prayers and for being a part of the Christian Fellowship Ministry!  God bless you more!
