the Lord make this New Year full of love, hope, courage, positivity, and service for each and every one of us!
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope” (Jeremiah 29:11).
As we continue to work together in reaching out to the lost in our area, the Lord also continues to bless our labor in leading us to those people whose hearts and minds are ready to listen to the saving message of God. We ask the Lord in a gentle prayer that as we keep on pointing these prospects to Jesus, they will later on make their decision to obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Every week, we are also blessed to have time to meet and study with the new converts to help them grow spiritually. Our young people were also blessed last month to gather together and enjoy the beautiful singing, great lesson, wonderful fellowship, and fun activities. We are so glad and thankful that they could come together to build their relationship as children of God and encourage each other to remain faithful in the Lord in spite of what is going on in our world today. May the Lord bless them with knowledge and wisdom and strengthened their love and faith to Him.
We thank and exalt the name of the Lord always for His continued love, mercy, protection, and blessings in spite of all that we had been through in 2021. As the Lord guided our ways in seeking the lost, we were able to share the power of God to salvation with a lot of people last year despite the continuous threats of the virus. Last month, another soul was added by the Lord to His body in the person of sister Flora Soniega. She is a friend and neighbor of a sister in Christ. She had witnessed the goodness and care of the Lord through His church to the hurting and needy people when our town was flooded a couple of months ago. My nephew Isaiah Miguel
Indong had also obeyed the Lord in baptism in December. We exceedingly rejoice and give God all the glory and honor that out of all the baptisms we had in 2021, forty (40) of them are continuing to serve and worship Him with us at Calasiao Town Proper congregation. We appreciate so much our brethren who continue to refer prospects to us. It is our hope and prayer that our loving and gracious God will continue to bless us with many more opportunities this 2022 to serve Him and to lead more people to His Son Jesus for their eternal salvation.
We are so very thankful and grateful for all that you have already done and will continue to do for the glory of God, for the salvation of many more souls, and for the edification of the Lord’s church here!
We really appreciate so much your love, care, prayers, kindness, and generosity.
As the Lord gives the increase, our congregation has already outgrown our church building. There are already people staying outside worshipping with us.
How beautiful it will be that before the rain comes in May of this year, we can already get all in to sing praises to the Lord and worship Him all together!
