Hugo Perez Cavite Team – September 2017


Pastor Ronnel and his team new church planting area

Ministry Highlights
Finally our team found a poor community at Barangay Muson 1 and 2 in Rosario, Cavite. Our team together with the CWTP Executive Committee (ExeComm) visited the area. During the visit we were accompanied by the leaders of our new church partner, Pastor Paulo (Long) Taripe of the Conservative Baptist Association of the Philippines – Cavite (CBAP).

We met the Barangay Chairman and had a short conversation with him together with one of his councilors who is also a Christian. They were very accommodating and had shown interest in supporting and helping our team by the time we start our ministry in their area. Praise God!

Summary for the month

Praise God that our new found area has been approved by the ExeComm during their visit and after touring around the community. Our team is now preparing the partnership agreement with our new church partner and planning to start the ministry upon signing the said agreement.

Our key objectives this coming month are to pray for the partnership with our new partner church, start our church planting ministry in Rosario, do the community survey and community profiling.
