“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (II Timothy 2:15) It has been a joy to be busy training another generation of Christian servants who will believe and teach the whole counsel of God (Acts 20:27).
I have been teaching a variety of weeklong modular classes to our Bible college students. These classes include Pilgrim’s Progress, the book of Daniel, I Corinthians–Part 1, Dealing with Suffering, Old Testament Survey–Part 1, a class on prayer, and Biblical Foundations, which is a class on basic biblical knowledge and doctrines. All of our students have shown an eager spirit to please the Lord and grow in their knowledge of the Scriptures. It is a joy to be one of their instructors.
In addition to their classroom studies, our students participate in our great musical program, led by our staff member Bro. Airo Garcia. I love that our students experience the power of conservative, godly music as it reinforces the preaching of the Word of God.
Every week our students join the rest of our church members in reaching the lost for Christ. We have begun our local Jail Ministry again and are seeing encouraging results, with souls saved and growing in grace. We continue to see great results from our Thursday evening and Saturday soul-winning efforts. Every Sunday we are seeing visitors in our services from our outreach, as well as people saved in the services. Every week we are seeing scores saved and baptized. Our people love soul winning!
The internet radio station continues to expand, especially with the free app designed by Pastor Randy DeMoville. We have added a Saturday night program called Prayer Waves during which we take prayer requests from our listening church members. We pray especially for God to bless our efforts to see more of our converts in church.
For Thanksgiving Day this year, we had all of our church staff gathered for a special time at the DeMovilles’ home. I was grateful for what the Lord has done over the years in raising up capable and godly staff from our own converts, trained in our Bible college
On the home front, my daughter, Ruth Morrissey, gave birth to her fourth child Hannah (Grandchild #17 for me). I praise the Lord that she will be raised on the mission field in the Philippines, just four hours south of me.
Thank you for your faithful and sacrificial support which make our efforts possible. May you have a wonderful Christmas and a blessed 2023!
Yours co-laborer in the Philippines,
