Sta. Isabel, Cavite Team -January 2018

Ministry Highlights:

Three Hard Questions and Alternative Learning System. Praise God last January 18- 20, the
team conducted the three hard questions in the community at the same time surveyed the
community for the Alternative Learning System (ALS). Thank God after the survey of more than two hundred (200) families, fifty percent (50%) in the community were willing to have Bible Study in their homes, willing to attend Sunday worship service, and ready to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Also, one hundred (100) persons wanted to enroll in our upcoming ALS program. We believe that all those were work of the Holy Spirit. Indeed, the community is ready to be harvested. The team will continue to visit those families, pray for them, and build relationship with them as part of follow up. We also enjoy the partnership with Jesus Intercessor’s Baptist Church (JIBC-Imus) and the lectio divina before going to the ministry area. Glory be to God!

Community Visit. Last January 6 we have visitors from the Three Crosses Church-U.S.A. They visited the three ministry areas in Cavite, one of which was our area in Pugad Ibon Bgy. Sta Isabel, Kawit, Cavite. Praise God for the visitors enjoyed the tour and interaction with few families in the community. They even prayed for the harvest of souls in our ministry area for
the glory of God.
