Halang Naic, Cavite Team – July 2018
GIFT-GIVING (OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD)
On July 7, we distributed Shoeboxes (gift-giving) from Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child or OCC. There were 50 Shoebox recipients. The Mission of Operation Christmas Child is “To demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to the needy children around the world, and together with the local church worldwide to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.” We are blessed to be a part of their ministry.
The shoeboxes have 3 categories, 2-4 years old, 5-9 years old, and 10-14 years old.
We’re having series of Bible teachings for the 10-14 year-old children. There are 12 Lessons in “The Greatest Journey or TGJ” teaching program. 16 students will be attending the TGJ lessons every Saturday, 3 o’clock in the afternoon.
MID-YEAR STRATEGIC PLANNING
We had our mid-year planning and assessment for what we have planned and accomplished for the past 6 months. We’ve done doing some of these, some were just started and we continue to seek what God wants us to do in our community.
One of these new things is having an “Evangelism Crusade” this coming October 2018, with the help of JIBC – Main Mission Team. We will be conducting this crusade in a Basketball Court which can accommodate about 300-400 people who will be hearing the Word of God. The main purpose of the said event is to open our ministry to the community and open new Bible Studies. We will have a house to house invitation.
We have 16 young people who joined the Youth Fellowship headed by JIBC Main Church at Alapan. The event was themed “God Is Indeed Greater Than Our Highs And Lows”. They had group sharing and testimonies on how God works in their lives.
It’s good to see an event like this – a fellowship where young people are honouring and sharing God’s goodness.
• Upcoming Outreach Program (Crusade) this October. We are praying for 300 people, event budget worth P 30,000 for Sound System, Foods, Venue and Preparation. Also praying for the good weather condition, permit approval from home owners association, and assistance of barangay officials for security and safety.
• Continues prayer for church building.
• Upcoming ALS (Alternative Learning System) in our community. We’re currently have 7 enrolees.
• Upcoming CL1 (Christian Living Level 1) this August. This program will help us to develop church leaders and workers.
