STORIES FROM THE SLUMS

Buhisan Cebu City Area-January 2018

Ministry Highlights

Newly Opened Bible Study. Praise the Lord! The team opened ten (10) new Bible studies this month. Every Tuesday we have four (4) groups, every Thursday four (4) groups and every Saturday three (3) groups. Each group has an average of seven (7) members, both adult and young people. Each Bible study group is starting with a prayer, singing praise songs and sharing personal life experiences before proceeding to the Bible study. It will be finished by praying for the families and sharing snacks.

Giving of Vitamins for Babies. God be praised for the team was able to give “Tiki-Tiki” vitamins to eight (8) babies ages 1 month to 1 year old in the ministry area. The mothers of those babies opened their homes for Bible study and started attending our worship service every Sunday morning at 9am.

Feeding Program. The team is thankful to the Lord’s continuous provision in our feeding program every Saturday afternoon. The program is being conducted at the lot we bought last September 2017. We were able to cater one hundred fifty (150) children in our feeding. This month also we were able to buy some kitchen utensils needed for cooking during our feeding.

Sunday Worship. We are grateful to the Lord for the regular worship service in the community. The team is blessed with the way God has been working the lives of the people in the ministry area. They are learning to come to the Lord and trust Him. Pastor Moises Maaghop shared the word and Ptr. Nehemias Buloron led the praise and worship last January 21. After the Sunday Worship, we distributed rice to fifteen (15) families who faithfully attended our service. They were very thankful to the Lord after they received the said blessing.

Construction of Nipa Hut. Last January 26 we started to construct a nipa hut (Kubo) in the lot that we purchased. The team along with some members of our Bible study groups worked as one and we had our lunch together. Hoping and praying that it will be finished on the third week of February 2018.

Prayer Concerns

1. For God’s provision to purchase twenty five (25) chairs for Sunday worship and one hundred (100) chairs for children in the feeding program
2. We need funds to sustain the weekly feeding program
3. The Lord’s anointing in our couples’ fellowship and youth fellowship this February
4. Good health and God’s daily provision for the team
5. The Lord will keep our children to grow in the knowledge, wisdom and grace of God (Ptr. Godjell’s son, Euan and Ptr. Moises’ son, Jury).
