Live out Loud with Christ!

The most exciting thing that God has done through the team is to preach to the kids that have been abandoned by their parents. Some are hyperactive and need a lot of patience and sometimes it was even frustrating making me want to -ARGHHHHHH! This can happen but because of the grace of God we overcame it. We taught them to obey their parents- and a week later we received letters from them, thanking for the lessons and telling us that they now are obeying their parents and how their life has been renewed. Tears flowed from our heart that God can do amazing and impossible things! As Samual Mims said, "You can do it, if you will!" Live out loud with Christ! God bless! -Jordan, Bicol Team, Luzon Franchise

Reaching the Unreached

Cecilia, Luzon Franchise Leader

Why is it important to reach the unreached 
and hard to reach in the Philippines?

It has always been my ambition to preach the gospel where Christ was not known, so that I would not be building on someone else's foundation.
Romans 15:20

While we stay in cities and where there are roads... competing with other evangelicals so we can grow ‘our church’ millions of people die each day. How many of them do not know Christ?  How many of them have not heard of him even once?

And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
Matthew 24:14

As the above verse states, we should go to all places because that is God’s heart. Even when there is no pathway to those places [we must go]. Hopefully the truth of the of the many souls bound for hell will move us [to action] because we are responsible for proclaiming the truth of the Gospel to those who have not heard.

 In the Philippines most people have heard the name of Jesus, but in many places it is just a name. They have had no one to explain the saving power of His name to them!

Power Revealed

God revealed His power to me when I was teaching in a crowd of noisy and hyper people. I thought no one was willing to listen about what I was teaching. After I was finished sharing with them I noticed there were some people that seemed like they were trying to understand. There in print of all those people God revealed His power to me because I thought there was hope for those people to understand what I was teaching - but by God's grace they were able to.- John, Bicol Team, Luzon Franchise
