Southville Phase 5 Team- July 2017


Sis Liyaga in her Bible Study Group

Ministry Highlights

First week of July, our Field Director, Pastor Enrique Cubillo, visited the community to have fellowship with the team and follow up his concern about our goals and plans within six months in the community. The partner church is lacking of leaders. That is why we aim to raise leaders both adult and youth. For this month, we need to spot potential leaders; the next step is to disciple, equip and train them on the following months. We recently eyed three adults namely, Gin, Marlyn and Kate, and five youth namely, Adrianne, Cathleen, Jennalyn, Angeline and Sherlyn. We have four to five adult Bible study groups every week and youth prayer meeting every Wednesday night.

Our team has a regular lectio divina during area days together with our partner pastor.

Praise the Lord for we are feeding 70 children every Saturday morning. 10 -15 youth regularly attends the youth fellowship every Sunday afternoon. We have 15 students enrolled in preschool. 10 children attends Sunday school at 8 o’clock in the morning while 15 to 17 youth and adult are regular attendees during Sunday worship at 10 o’clock in the morning.

Prayer Concerns

1.    Wisdom and discernment for the team
2.    Committed leaders who can help Pastor Zaldy
3.    Financial provision for the team and Pastor Zaldy
