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.
