New Philippines Mission Newsletter! September 2013

 

New Portable Document 2 Page 1

The latest newsletter from our missionaries in the Philippines has been published! This issue focuses on the labors with Pastor Leovy Trinidad and the Maranatha PRC in Valenzuela, Manila. Read about this precious group of Reformed Christians and their efforts to reach this part of the Philippines with the gospel of sovereign grace! Here is a quote from the first part of the newsletter. Read all of it from the attached pdf.

One of the churches which has become a significant and regular part of our mission work here in the Philippines is the Maranatha Protestant Reformed Church in Valenzuela. This congregation is located about 25 miles (usually an hour’s drive) from where we live in Antipolo. Rev. Smit and his family worship here at least two Sundays each month. Rev. Smit preaches and teaches with the goal in mind (which is also the stated desire of the congregation) that this church might one day become part of the federation of Protestant Reformed Churches here, the Lord willing. We hope that by means of this newsletter you may gain some knowledge and awareness of this congregation of beloved fellow-saints in Christ.

Ibe Family and Berean PRC Newsletter

VernonIbe-1Pastor Vernon Ibe, serving in the Berean PRC in Manila, the Philippines, has published a new family and church family newsletter. Read the attached newsletter, or visit the Missions page for the latest news. Besides learning about the activities and events of the last few months, you won't want to miss the wonderful pictures!

Here's the note which Pastor Ibe sent with the newsletter:

Dear All,

Greetings in the name of Jehovah, our faithful covenant keeping God!

We're sending you our newsletter for the months of May to August. 

I think the last one was sent four or five months ago. We're trying our best to keep in touch and to keep you all informed as to what's new and what's life and the ministry had been for us since we came back to the Philippines. 

...We're making progress here as always by the grace of God! 

Since we arrived, we moved four times already and it is possible that we will move again in two or three months time from now (D.V.). 

The ministry is going strong despite many problems we encounter each day as our journey continues in this life, Yes. This is normal and it ought to be that way...this is God's way of making us stronger each day as He makes us realize that apart from Him we cannot do anything! 

For that reason, we solicit your prayers as Jehovah God reminds you all of us! 

May God shower you all with His constant care and love in Christ our Lord! 

Sincerely in Christ, 

Ptr. Vernon and family

Cand. Erik Guichelaar Accepts Call to Randolph PRC

ErikGCherithKennedyOn Sunday, August 25, 2013, Candidate Erik Guichelaar announced that he was led to accept the call from Randolph (WI) PRC to enter the ministry of the Word and sacraments and become their next pastor. This also meant that he declined the call from Doon (IA) PRC. The plan is for him to be examined at the meeting of Classis West, now to be held Wednesday, October 9, in Loveland, CO, with his ordination and installation to follow shortly thereafter, D.V. We rejoice with Erik and Cherith, and pray that God continues to bless their preparations for the gospel ministry in our churches.

UPDATE from Randolph's Council: "Having accepted our call to serve as our next pastor, the council has requested of the classical committee that Pastor Elect Erik Guichelaar be examined at the meeting of Classis West on October 9 in Loveland, CO. The Lord willing, Pastor Elect Guichelaar will be ordained and installed as Pastor of Randolph PRC, in our sanctuary, during the morning service of October 13. Professor Ron Cammenga will lead us in worship that day and will officiate the installation. Pastor Elect Guichelaar and his wife plan to move to Randolph near the end of September."
