Calvary Baptist Church
I just recently finished a missions conference with Calvary Baptist Church in Batavia, NY under the leadership of Pastor Bruce Balduf. I was so happy for the opportunity that was given to me to present my work and burden for the Philippines. They also gave me the opportunity to preach at their school chapel, teen Sunday school, and Sunday evening service. They treated me very well! I stayed with Bro. Jerry and Sister Rhea and their two wonderful children David and Rebekah. Sister Rhea is a Filipino so she treated me with Filipino cooking. It was wonderful! For a couple of days I thought I was in the Philippines. God is so good to me!
This past Friday we had another one of our teen activities. This particular activity involved food. Teens love to eat and so do I. This activity is called progressive dinner due to the fact that we went to three different houses to eat our meal. The first house was the soup. The second house was the main meal and the third house was the dessert. We had a great time. A couple of the teens brought some of their friends from their schools and neighbourhoods. It was a blessing to see them interested in the lives of others around them. The evening ended with a service around a bonfire. It was a great night!
Faith Bible Baptist Church
Our Church Celebrated our 26th year anniversary a couple of Sundays ago April 5, 2009. We had a special speaker come in by the name of Dr. Tom Wallace. He was with us for four days Sunday through Wednesday. We had a great time! I want to thank the Lord for giving me a pastor (Pastor Art Kohl) that has been faithful for many years. He has been and continue to be a blessing in my life. Because of God’s faithfulness, we as His servants and children can also be faithful.
New Display Board
I am excited over the fact that I finished putting together my new display board! I am done using the one that I made out of cardboard. I am very thankful to a fellow carpenter from my church that made the display board for me. He made it out of oak. I am also thankful to my dad for doing the finishing touches. It looks beautiful! This will be the one that I will use this following month and hopefully for the rest of my deputation. Deputation by the way is going very well. I am scheduling meetings regularly. God is opening doors for me to present my call to the Philippines! God be praised!
