Rosario Cavite Team – November 2017


Our church partner in action: Ptr. Taripe and Ptr. Roel with their church workers during community survey

Ministry Highlights

We praise God that our team together with our partner and their volunteers had finished our community survey and profiling last November 2. It was a very good experience for our partner and volunteers in doing this activity, tiring but everything has been worth it after hearing life stories from the people in the community.

On November 9 and 10, we finished our strategic planning for the year 2018. Then we set a meeting with eight (8) parent leaders in the community. Those parent leaders were handling 25 to 30 parents each in 4P’s — Pantawid Pamilya Program. This was a big opportunity for the team to share the good news of salvation of our Lord Jesus Christ.

This coming month of December we will do a Jericho walk to pray for the community and build up community relations. We will also start the Bible study and evangelize the eight parent leaders using the 7×7 discipleship program of our partner GBCC. We will divide our team into five groups to have five (5) home Bible study groups during our ministry area days.
