Phillippines Mission Report - Annual Report of 2013

Dear Church and Pastor Frank,


I greet you in the precious name of our Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ whom we serve.I trust this letter finds you in good health and in the joys of the Lord.


I am so thankful to the Lord God in using you to evangelize the Philippines and plant churcheshere and in choosing me as your missionary and to our pastor Elder Frank McClanahan who taughtme to organize a church even though there are only 2 baptized believers comprising it. And therefore correcting the false idea that I can only organize a church if there are 50 baptized believers and have already their land and church building before organizing them into a church. I inherited this idea frommy previous church affiliation and if I follow this kind of mission policy we have no 3 organize churches last year. And me as your missionary, am looking forward to organize more churches this year 2014.


I have to send this Annual Philippine Mission Report beginning from the month of March 2013 up to December 2013. And in 10 months time in doing mission work in the Philippines, we were able bythe grace of God to organized 3 churches in 2013 namely: New Testament Baptist Church in NavalBiliran, Philippines on March 31, 2013 and the New Testament Baptist Church in Jose Abad SantosDavao Occidental, Philippines on November 13, 2013 and the New Testament Baptist Church in Ozamis City, Misamis Occidental, Philippines on December 17, 2013. 


I am sending you the pictorial report of our daughter churches in Naval, Biliran, Philippines, Jose AbadSantos, Davao Occidental, Philippines and in Ozamis City, Misamis Occidenta Philippines. Please, letus continue to pray for these 3 churches that they will grow numerically, spiritually and that they will have their own lands and building and become mission minded. And lastly, continue to pray for me also. And thank you so much also for your continued support for the mission last year 2013 from March to December.


Any word from you is very much appreciated.
Your missionary,

Teddy C. Badilles

Phillippines Mission Report - Jan 2014

Dear Church and Pastor Frank,

 

I greet you in the precious name of our Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ whom we serve. I trust this letter finds you in good health and in the joys of the Lord.

I received with joy and appreciation your prayers and support for the month of December 2013 as well as the one time special offerings in the amount of $500.00 and the monthly support in the amount of $100.00 from Grace Baptist Church of San Antonio, Texas, U.S.A. pastored by Elder Jose F. Maldonado. And also I received the advance support for January 2014 on December 14, 2013 in the amount of $200.00 when I was doing mission work in Ozamis City, Misamis Occidental, Philippines and the remaining balance in the amount of $300.00 on January 3, 2014 sent by our Treasurer, Sis. Rebekah Evans. I thank her for serving the Lord faithfully through His church, the Meadowthorpe Baptist Church.

I'm sorry to say that I went only to 2 different places in December 2013 preaching the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ In Ozamis City, Misamis Occidental, Philippines and in San Francisco, Southern Leyte, Philippines instead of going to 4 different places in December as originally planned due to time constraint.

In Ozamis City before I conducted a 4 days preaching of the Gospel in a large room offered by a busineesman there about True Salvation, True Baptism, True Church and True Christian Living, I had spent a few days in house to house visitation, giving fliers, and inviting people to come to the meeting place to hear the Gospel preach. Many attended, but, only 2 responded for baptism and organization on December 17, 2013 and the new church comprising 2 baptized believers called the new organized church: New Testament Baptist Church of Ozamis City, Misamis Occidental, Philippines (Matthew 18:15-20). They adopt a doctrinal statement, church covenant, article of incorporation and article of agreement. Pictures about the newly organized church will be sent later, but no video coverage due to lack of personnel who knows how to operate the video camera. 

Who says that we cannot organize 2 baptized believers into a church? Of course, the religious people and religious organizations today, but, not our Lord Jesus Christ and His church (again, read Matthew 18:15-20). "Two or three gathered together in my name, there am I in the mid of them" Matthew 18:20 (in church capacity). 

Of course in my capacity as your missionary, I have need to visit from time to time all the churches that we organized in the Philippines like what the Apostle Paul did during the New Testament times in his missionary works after he organized the church in Corinth, Galatia, Thessalonika, Ephesus, Collose, Philippos, Rome and others to find out what the churches are doing.after he left them and gave his report to his sending church in Antioch (Acts 14:26-28). That is also what I will do in the future.

As for my preaching of the Gospel in San Francisco, Southern Leyte, Philippines accompanied by my wife Connie Badilles, the people there who heard me preach are not yet ripe for baptism and organization. But, I promised to return to them sometimes in April or May 2014 to harvest what I planted. As for our mission work this month of January 2014, I will concentrate it in Tagum City, Davao del Norte, Philippines and in Baganga, Davao Oriental, Philippines.

Thank you so much for your continued prayers and support for the Mission Work in the Philippines and for using me as your representative of this mission work. I thank the Lord for saving me and for calling me to the Gospel Ministry as your partner in doing mission work in the Philippines in preaching, baptizing, teaching and organizing baptized believers into churches of like faith and order in different parts of the country.

Please send me the E-mail address of Grace Baptist Church in Antonio, Texas and her pastor, Elder Jose F. Maldonado because I will send them a copy of this report as soon as possible.

 

Any word from you is very much appreciated.

Your missionary,

Teddy C. Badilles

Ship to Shore November 2013 Report

Maritime Minutes:

We all know how important it is spiritually to stay away from the shallow waters of today’s religious world.  If we do not stay in the deep spiritual waters, we will run aground and become shipwreck.  The nautical term for staying in the deep waters is “offing.”  “Offing” is the distance that a ship at sea stays away from land and the navigational dangers of sand bars, rocks, etc.  A good offing is to lay a course that will keep the ship well off the land and clear from danger.  If we want to see the mighty works of God, we must launch out into the deep for this is where the spiritual seafarer will experience the deeper things of Jehovah God.  “They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep” (Psalm 107:23-24).

Ship’s Log: 

There are times when I go on a ship and wonder how I am going to handle the situation at hand. This was the case on board the FRIO KYKNOS (flag Malta).  The crew on this refrigerator ship was Russian and Ukrainian.  None of the men on this ship could as much as step foot on US soil, not one had a VISA.  When I went on board, I met three rough looking men who were very skeptical of my plans.  I tried to lay out my mission as plain as I could; it was only when I held up a Russian Bible that they got the message and received the scriptures.  It ended up being a fairly pleasant visit.  Pictured is one of the Russians who met me on deck.  I was privileged to visit on board the LIJUN C (flag UK) for a couple of days.  This is a ship that my good friend and fellow Port Chaplain has made friends with the crew on.  I was able to witness to some of the men and leave scriptures as well as take some of the crew off the ship to go and buy things for themselves and the ship. The biggest thrill that I had in visiting this ship was the opportunity to put three cases of KJV Bibles on board to be delivered to Jamaica.  The cook and I had two lengthy Bible studies while the ship was in.  The BOW STAR (fl. Singapore) came into our Liquid Bulk plan, and I visited her there.  The crew was Norwegian and Filipino.  The Norwegian officers were cordial and received scriptures in their language.  The Filipinos are always glad to have a visitor it seems, and we had a good time sharing the scriptures by the spoken and written Word. Captain Crabtree and I had a good visit together on board the LEWEK EXPRESS (fl. Vanuatu).  He was pleased with our ministry, although he made no indication that he was a believer.  I was able to take several of the crew members to Mobile and let them shop, shared the Gospel with the crew, and gave out New Testaments in their languages.  On a visit to the MARTINA C (fl. Panama), I was able to spend time talking to some of the crew, sharing the Gospel, and passing out New Testaments, etc.  The Captain, a Romanian, the cook, Filipino, and Melissa, a young lady on her first voyage as a Cadet, wanted to shop for supplies.  We took them to Wal-Mart.  When they finished shopping and the Transit was loaded, Melissa said: “It’s time to go home,” speaking of the ship.  The Captain replied: “You are now a seafarer.”  I visited the HARVEY DEEP SEA (fl. USA) while she was undergoing generator repairs at one of our docks.  When I got on board, I asked a deck hand what nationalities were on board.  His reply: “Cajuns and Yankees.” Sure enough, as I sat and ate supper and shared the Gospel with them; I found he was on target.  And yes, we had some good Cajun food!  Over the last little while I have been able to establish friendships on board the DEEP ENERGY.  Among these are the storekeeper, Jessie, and his assistant, Campbell Bagir.  Campbell showed an interest in the Gospel; and there deep in the bowels of the ship, I spoke to him of Christ death, burial, and resurrection.  We were interrupted, and he had to leave.  He asked me to stay.  I thought to myself, “the Devil has snatched the seed away.”  But when he came back, he said “where were we?”  And that evening he came to know Christ as Savior. 

Yours for Souls at Sea,

Cecil and Denise Fayard

Pietrowski Mission Update - Nov 2013

"We were recently on a walk in Derbyshire and came across a stone circle (think Stonehenge on a smaller and broken scale) where pagans were gathering together to worship. They laid out their crystals and were using different noise makers to call together the spirits."

Ship To Shore October 2013 Report

 "It is a serious offense for a sailor to fall asleep while on watch.  In the days of ships with sails, the term for waking a sailor who fell asleep on watch by throwing a bucketful of cold water over him was 'blowing the grampus.'


What about those who serve the Captain of our salvation, Jesus Christ?  The Bible makes it plain that we are to be wide awake and on watch.  In Romans 13:11, there is admonishment to those who are asleep on watch:  'And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.'

Justified by Child-like Faith - VBS 2013

"The challenge and beauty of teaching children is not in watering down the Word that they might relate to it. It’s finding within your own conversion, the simplicity of the Gospel and of trusting upon Jesus, in faith, that you might relay it unto the kids."
