Exciting Times!

We want to praise the Lord for two more young men who were baptized this month!  It has been our prayer to see souls saved and grow to be faithful members of the church. Too often in our world today, people make professions of faith and then disappear, never to be seen in our churches again.  This leaves us to wonder if they were truly saved or if we failed somehow to help them grow. In my own personal witness, I do my best not to push someone to make a decision. If the heart is not ready to recognize their sin and their absolute need of a Savior, praying the sinner’s prayer is not going to help them.  We must rely on the Holy Spirit as we share the Gospel with people and not pressure them to “get saved” before they are ready. Praise the Lord, the souls we have seen saved and baptized this month, have been faithfully attending church ever since. It is such an encouragement to see fruit that remains! These truly are exciting times for North Cebu Baptist Church!

A Vision for Souls

 On Sunday, we were blessed to see a young man baptized!  This man came to church after meeting, Peter, one of our Bible college students. Peter has a passion for sharing Christ and bringing people to church!  Because of Peter’s heart for others, this man was able to hear the gospel and make the decision to trust Christ as his Savior!  It was such a blessing to see this young man take the next step and be baptized! I pray we would get God’s vision for souls and, like Peter, let it become our passion! 

 Proverbs 11:30 “The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.”

Good News from a Far Country

baptism

Proverbs 25:25 “As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country.”

As we travel around the USA, it is a blessing to hear from home. This week we received a wonderful report from our co-laborers, three of our teenagers were baptized! Baptism is a BIG step for our people in the Philippines because it is a public testimony that they are Christians. Some face persecution when they take this step of faith so it is not something people do lightly. We praise the Lord for this good news! What an encouragement as we grow weary from our travels and miss home.

ThisBaptism Collage past Sunday we had two more people baptized! The first was, Edmarie, a young mother that was recently saved at our church.  Since her salvation she has attended our services and expressed her desire to be baptized. Genesis is a teenager who has been saved for some time now but finally decided that he was ready to be baptized! Baptism is not something we do to earn our way to heaven.  It is a public proclamation of our faith in Jesus Christ!  We thank the Lord for these blessings!
