Baras Rizal Area-September 2017

Ministry Highlights

As a team, we do our Lectio and team meetings. Praying and discussing to accomplish our short term planned ministries. For the month of September, we started to share in our Adult / Youth Bible Study / Discipleship groups and Sunday Worship Celebration about Water Baptism as we prepare God’s people to undergo this ordinance.

We delegated the tasks for our Water Baptism. Ptr. Nerio will take care of finding a vehicle (transportation) and making the Certificate of Baptism; Sis. Delia and Sis. Paulette will get the information of the people willing to be baptized together with the total head count per family willing to come and join our Church Fellowship and Water Baptism; and Ptr. Bart will be the one to find the right location for the said event.

As of now (September), we have 11 people who are willing to obey and follow our God.

The team would like to praise and thank God for providing their needs, for taking good care of their families and for His travelling mercy every time they go to the area.
