Praise the Lord for a great start in 2021, with 517 souls trusting Christ through soul-winning and outreach activities during January and February. Our folks are so excited to be able to get out and about whenever they can, as the current lockdown and quarantine measures permit.
Several of our people were able to attend the World Missions Conference at Bethany Baptist Church in Makati, Metro Manila, pastored by my friend, Gerry Nable. One of our staff ladies surrendered to missions, and several of our young men made decisions to continue in their calling to serve God.
We have also resumed house-to-house prayer meetings, where our church members in their various villages and subdivisions take turns each week having prayer meetings and fellowships in their homes.
More of our folks have resumed attending services at our church facility, and our musicians have recently resumed our mini-orchestra. It’s exciting to see things gradually returning to normal.
We were able to have a Friendship Day, where our people brought their friends to church, resulting in 9 precious souls receiving Christ.
We had 14 preacher boys and soul winners go out street preaching and saw 37 people get saved.
We have resumed extension Bible classes in several villages.
We have another young man from our outreach in Lipa City who would like to attend our Bible college. That will be 3 students from our work there. Praise the Lord!
It is so good to see God continue to do great things and to look forward to seeing even greater things in the future.
I think the most exciting thing for me is to continue to see people saved in spite of the challenges to getting the Gospel out. We have had to become more resourceful and find new ways, and GOD STILL BESSES! Thank God that He is still all-powerful.
Jojo, one of our men, has been working with the Aeta people, a tribe in the mountain province of Zambales. With the Lord’s help, we are planning to start a Christian school there and an extension of our Bible college. There are several young men there who have been conducting church services and Bible studies and are asking for training. Please pray about this great opportunity.
Thank you all so much for the opportunity of representing you with the Gospel of Christ in this tremendous harvest field. We are eternally grateful.
Yours for souls,
Courtney & Ester Godsoe
