Sta. Isabel, Cavite Team -December 2017

2Ministry Highlights:

Visit at Ministry Area.
Last December 5, the team visited the ministry area with the friends from Christian Bible Church of the Philippines (CBCP) led by Ma’am Jackie Tan, Cathy and Ptr. Allan. Praise God they enjoyed the visit; we walked around, talked to few families and some officer of the R1 and R2 group of Home Owners. The purpose of this visit was to look for a big place where to conduct future medical and dental outreach ministry of CBCP. God is good for we started to plan for this event and He provided us people to work with ahead.

Team Strategic Planning.
The team did our strategic planning together with the partner church last December 14 and 15. We had our lectio time before starting our planning. We calendar our activities for one year. January to March, we planned for evangelism, feeding program and establish five (5) Bible studies. April to June, additional five (5) new Bible studies, follow up old Bible studies, start a worship service, and conduct water baptism, medical and dental mission. July to August, start first communion in worship, Sunday school teacher training, mentoring for old Bible studies, and workshop for music ministry. We had also a quarterly team evaluation and team bonding.
