Happy New Year! May we all be blessed with many more opportunities to love and be loved.
“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers” (3 John 2).
We praise and thank God for His unending love, incomparable mercy, and abundant blessings despite all the struggles and difficulties we all faced in 2022. Indeed, God is good all the time. As He directs our paths and keeps us in our well-being, we have been able to reach out to the people in our community in many ways by sharing with them the spiritual blessings and the hope that we have in Jesus. We have also been able to show up, pray, and encourage our brothers and sisters in Christ during their times of sadness and grief because of family problems, health issues, and the loss of loved ones. We hope and pray that our congregation will continue to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. May God bless us with many more opportunities this brand-new year to know more people with whom we can sit together and learn from the teachings of the Greatest Teacher who ever lived on this earth about eternal life in heaven.
Our young people were blessed with the opportunity to attend and participate in the Christian Youth Camp during their holiday break last month. The venue was filled with many young Christians that came from different towns, cities, and provinces. It was a three-day Christian gathering that teemed with encouraging lessons, vibrant singing, great fellowship, and enjoyable activities with moral lessons. We are happy and thankful to the Lord for providing such a wonderful event where youth from different congregations can grow together spiritually and build their relationship as brothers and sisters in His family. Our young people are motivated to share what they have been learning from the Scriptures with others. Some of them have already
invited their classmates to attend our church services. May their faith and love for the Lord grow deeper as they continue to serve Him and immerse themselves in the Scriptures.
We are very 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 furtherance of the Lord’s church here in the Philippines!
May the Lord continue to bless and strengthen our relationship as we keep on working together in His vineyard this 2023.
