Contact Committee Delegation in the Philippines - Update Dec.17, 2015

As the delegation of Profs. R. Cammenga and R. Dykstra continues their visit to and work in the Philippines on behalf of the PRC Committee for Contact with Other Churches, Rev.D.Kleyn posted on his blog Friday Dec.17 a summary of their work so far. The report contains many profitable pictures with descriptions of their labors.

Below is a glimpse at some of the visits and works done so far; visit the post to find the complete summary.

In response to a request from the PRCP (Protestant Reformed Churches in the Philippines), a delegation from the Contact Committee of the PRCA traveled to the Philippines in December 2015 to begin the work toward the goal of establishing a sister-church relationship between the PRCA and the PRCP.

PRC Classis Meeting in the Philippines - Feb.25, 2015 - Update: Report & Pics

Berean PRC New worship place 2014From the February 22, 2015 bulletin of the Provident Christian Church (Marikina, the Philippines), where missionary-pastor D.Kleyn preached this past Sunday, we learn the following:

The regular Classis Meeting of the Protestant Reformed Churches in the Philippines (which meets 3 times a year) is scheduled for this week Wednesday, February 25, beginning at 9:00 a.m., in the church building of the Berean PRC in Greenheights Subdivision, Mayamot, Antipolo. All are welcome to attend and observe the meeting.

Let's be sure to pray for the delegates as they conduct the business of the churches together in that part of the world.

Also, this note was placed in the same bulletin:

Next Sunday, Lord willing, Rev. R. Smit will be preaching for us. That will be his and his family’s last Sunday with us here in PCC.

Let's also be in prayer for the Smits as they conclude their life and labors in the Philippines and prepare to come to First PRC, Grand Rapids, MI where Rev.Smit recently accepted a call to serve as pastor.

Update: Rev.D.Kleyn sent this summary of the meeting and a few pictures, which we now add here.

The meeting was held yesterday (February 25) in the church building of the Berean PRC in Mayamot, Antipolo. Rev.D.Kleyn (who served as president of the previous classis) opened the meeting by leading the classis in devotions and a meditation on Psalm 87:2. Then Rev. Flores, by rotation, chaired the meeting of Classis.

PRCP Classis Feb 2015 1

In addition to receiving reports from the clerk and treasurer and approving their work, the Classis received and treated reports from its two standing committees. The main content of these reports was that each committee presented constitutions to classis for its respective duties - i.e., constitutions for Contact Committee, Finance Committee, Seminary Student Training, etc.

The Classis also treated and approved the procedure that is to be used when churches request membership in the PRCP. The classis then gave its approval for one of the standing committees to implement this procedure in treating the request of Maranatha PRC in Valenzuela to join the federation.

The classis began at 9:00 am and finished at approximately 1:00 pm.

This was the last classis meeting that Rev.R.Smit will attend, and he bade farewell to the classis and led in the closing prayer. As many of the men of Classis mentioned, he will certainly be missed.

RSmit bids farewell 2 classis Feb 2015

The next classis meeting is scheduled for June 12, the Lord willing, and will be hosted by the PRC in Bulacan.

In all we sold 270 books, more than double last year's sales! Thanks to the congregations of the PRC for the collections that make the sale and purchase of these books affordable!
I also promised an explanation of why Prof. Engelsma, the featured speaker at the conference, was not on the group picture. The reason was that many people wanted their books autographed by the author. :-)

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
