Napindan Rizal Team- March 2016

Mc.March.2016 1 Significant Ministry Highlight.

We praise God that after much prayer, the Lord granted our request to be able to buy a property at Taniman as our mission center and house of worship and prayer.

The property measures about 60 – 70 sq. meters with an old structure/house in place. As such, the place is ready for use. If it were also a vacant lot, we would need to raise a big amount of money to build a structure in place. Furthermore, it’s location is ideally situated. Although it is not along the main and only street in the community, it is easily accessible and conveniently located near the newly-completed lone basketball court.

We had our first praise and worship at the “new” church building on March 7 attended by 31 believers. During the praise and worship, we also dedicated the house of prayer and worship and prayer of spiritual warfare to cleanse the place from any demonic practices which may have occurred in that place in the past.

We also
praise God for sending a senior male worker to help us follow-up the men in the community who are usually available only on Sundays. The male worker who lives in Taniman can devote his time to do follow-up early in the evening as he lives in the community whereas on our part, we leave the community at 6:00 p.m. as it becomes difMc.March.2016 2ficult for us to get a ride as there are no more passengers and trikes going out of the community.
