Christian Fellowship Church of the Philippines, March 2016 Update

 
Christian Fellowship Church of the Philippines, March 2016 Update  
 
“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 16:20
    Greetings in the Name of our Lord!  He has commissioned us long ago before He left this world, and told us to go and preach His Word!  So this is our job!  We are so excited about what the Lord is doing for His people and for the good reports we hear from the churches!
    All over Negros Island the Fellowship churches are growing and expanding, and some are opening new daughter churches.  I have attached some photos of a new construction in the mountain village of Lapay, in the mountains of southern Negros.
  This construction just started the second week of March with the layout of the building and putting up of the coconut posts.  The building will be made of lumber.  It will have a pastoral house for the pastor and his family at the back of the church.  We are excited about this new church!  The members are donating their time to work on the construction.  The building will have a tin roof made of galvanized iron sheets.  Please pray for this need!
 
    I’m also enclosing pictures of the Bible school graduates at their farewell service on March 17!  The seven graduates will be working in local Christian Fellowship churches from northern Negros Island to southern Negros Island!  They are so excited about their new work!  Please pray for them and for revival in all our churches! 
    The last picture is of our church in Larena on Siquijor Island.  This is a big church and has a great congregation with many young people!
    We will be holding our annual Youth Convention on April 1822 here in Dumaguete City, and we look forward to a good attendance of youth and a great time in the Lord! 
The theme of our convention is “Revival”!
 
    Thank you for all your prayers and support for the 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!
    Sis June Pacleb

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, December 14, 2014
“The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means God with us.”  Matt. 1:23.
     We celebrate the Christ of Christmas, and we’re so happy He is here with us!   All praise and glory to God!  The Christian Fellowship churches all have their own thanksgiving celebrations this month so it’s such a busy time for all.  On Dec 22 I’ll be going to the northern Negros district to join their celebration in the mountain village of Pacuan.  It’s a 28 kilometer rough ride up the hills by mountain bike!  Several pastors of that district will gather together for this district thanksgiving!
     We had our Christmas party at the Bible school Saturday December 13, with the students and faculty.  The students decorated freehand the big chalkboard with colored chalk and did a beautiful job!  It was a happy time of special songs by faculty and students and games for the students before we had exchange gifts and a wonderful meal!  The students especially enjoyed the treat of young coconut with the coconut water and milk!
     After lunch the students prepared to go back to their homes for Christmas break.  They will be ministering in their home churches during the break which will be a big help to their pastors.
     I attach a few pictures of the occasion!  Thank you for your prayers for the School of Ministry!
     Merry Christmas and a Wonderful New Year!

Christian Fellowship Church of the Philippines Update, November 2014

Christian Fellowship Church of the Philippines Update, November 2014
“Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart that I may fear your Name.”  Psalm 86:11.  How wonderful it is to walk in the ways and truth of the Lord with an undivided heart!  How blessed is each and every day!
     The Lord has been moving in the churches here giving encouragement and strengthening the pastors.  We have divided the churches into districts such as north, south, east and west districts.  A dedicated supervisor is over the churches in his area.  The district churches have monthly and quarterly fellowship meetings, and this is a great source of encouragement and strength.  The fellowship meetings are growing!  Our northern Negros Island district has a hundred pastors and lay workers attending from his district alone!  Many of the churches are located in the secluded mountainous areas which are difficult to reach except by walking or riding a mountain bike or horse!  But that doesn’t hinder the pastors from coming from far distances from their own villages to fellowship together.  Monthly fellowships are held in various village churches, to give everyone a chance to host them!
     The southern Negros Island district has a two days’ monthly Bible training, or equipping, to give supplemental training to local lay pastors.  This local Bible training has been going on for several years and is very helpful!
     A few of the Negros churches are in church construction, or renovation, and they are believing God to supply the building materials.  When work on a certain project is scheduled, the district pastors get together to donate their free time and labor to lay cement blocks or put up walls or roofing!  This practice is a part of Philippine culture called “bayanihan”, which means working together to accomplish a task.  Willing hearts and hands working together!
     Our Bible school students from the School of Ministry here in Dumaguete City are going out every Friday afternoon to evangelize and teach Bible studies.  They go two by two as Jesus recommended!  Immediately, they became successful!  After the first door to door visitation, they were invited to hold Bible studies in homes.  One elderly lady admitted that she had only attended church twice in her whole life!  But now she invited the students to teach in her home every Friday!  Now our students are conducting three new weekly Bible studies!
     Our students are anticipating going back to their home churches at Christmas to preach and do outreaches and they’re getting pretty excited!  Truly, it’s “harvest time”!
     Thank you for your prayers for us and for the good work the Lord is doing here!  The Lord is really answering those prayers!  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.” Ps 92:1,2.
     Praise the Lord for His love and faithfulness to His people and for all the good things He is doing among us!  It’s a joy to serve him!
     We are so happy to train our young people in the Christian Fellowship School of Ministry to prepare them for a ministry of pastoring and church planting.  We see in them a deep commitment to future ministry.  They are attending services and activities in our Dumaguete City church and the Sibulan church.  They are gaining experience in different areas of ministry including Bible teaching, outreaches, and music and worship.  Thank you for your prayers for them!
     We are also happy for the four branch Bible training centers, located in four districts of Negros Island and Cebu Island: Binalbagan, Carcar, Banay-banay and Dumaguete City.  These centers give basic Bible teaching for lay-pastors and church workers.
     Our graduates from the School of Ministry last year are already pioneering churches in Campuyo, Manjuyod and Poblacion Siaton.  The Campuyo church is feeling revival since our new pastor took over.  Two young men from this congregation are students of the School of Ministry!  This month the church is constructing a roof for the pastor’s kitchen!  They will use galvanized, corregated iron roofing sheets.
     In Siaton, we are helping to rent a place for services, and we have provided plastic chairs for the services!  The new pastor there is working hard to evangelize and several families are now gathering.
     Hopefully, by next letter, I’ll have some pictures to share of some of these different outreaches.  For now, I attach recent photos of Pastor Benito and myself.  Again, thank you so much for all your prayers and support!
     God bless you!

Christian Fellowship School of Ministry Opened, June 14, 2014!

Jesus said, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” Matthew 28: 19,20

The Christian Fellowship School of Ministry, our theological college, opened this month for the new school year of 2014-15! We enrolled nine new students and we had a welcome service and acquaintance party on Saturday, June 14! Classes started on June 16, and are on full-swing! We are so happy for the students the Lord has given to us this year, and we feel they will make fine pastors when they finish their training! They are six boys and three girls! They are already showing a high level of commitment and purpose, so we feel privileged to be a part of their lives in preparing them for future ministry! Please pray for them and for the faculty and staff, as well.

We do not charge tuition since our students are indigents and are not able to pay. So we need sponsors for the operation of the school. Please pray about what you can do to help finance the school. Any amount you can give monthly will be greatly appreciated! May we please hear from you by return email. Thank you and God bless you!

Christian Fellowship Church of the Philippines, April 2014

“Present yourself to God as one approved”, 2 Tim. 2:15.
This was the theme of our annual Youth Convention on April 14-17!  Praise God for a wonderful convention with great fellowship and a real move of the Holy Spirit.  The attendance was very good with several hundred youth and their pastors coming from all over Negros Island and even Mindanao Island.  We were so blessed to share the sweet fellowship of pastors and youth alike.  The youth and pastors each had their own sessions and the youth also had Bible games and Singing Contests!  We see the Lord causing the Christian Fellowship to grow spiritually and new churches are opening up, as well.  Thank you for your prayers!
I attached pictures.  Many blessings!
