We continue to praise the Lord during the pandemic. We know that He is in control, even when our city is on lockdown. God still opens doors so that we can go soul winning and share the wonderful story of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Recently, one of our Bible college graduates was invited to do a home Bible study about one hour away. The people received the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour, and they want the preacher to come back and do monthly home Bible studies. Please pray as he travels back and forth to help these precious souls grow in the Lord. Some cities and towns in the Philippines are opening up, but our city is still very strict during this pandemic. Please pray that God will open doors so more souls will be saved during this time.
Years ago, one our preachers started a men’s Bible study 45 minutes away by motorcycle. The men were gold miners and lived in a room with hardly any chairs. They had the Bible study sitting on the floor. Souls were saved because of the preaching and teaching of the Word of God. The treasure of one soul is more precious than all the gold in the world! A church in that area took over the Bible study. Recently, we heard that many of those men are still attending the Bible studies. Please pray that they would keep coming to church and serving the Lord.
Our family is doing well and keeping safe. We pray that God will keep all of you safe and healthy. It seems many churches in America are being affected as well with the laws and protocols because of COVID-19. Please pray for us also as we deal with the pandemic here in the Philippines. Pray that the Lord will give us wisdom on how to continue reaching souls with the Gospel. My mind goes back to II Timothy 2:9, “. . . but the word of God is not bound.” The Word of God will never be bound by COVID-19, the world, or laws; and it will not return void!
