Philippine Missions Newsletter - November 2015

Our missionary in the Philippines, along with the Foreign Mission Committee and the calling church, Doon PRC Council, have just published their latest newsletter.

The November 2015 issue, penned by Missionary-pastor D.Kleyn, provides information on the recent visitors/helpers to the field and the ongoing busyness of the labors in the various places in the Philippines. The need for a second missionary - perhaps more - remains great. Rev.Kleyn also reports on the visitors planned for the field in the coming months.

Let's remember to pray for the Kleyns as they serve the Lord and His people in distant lands - and by themselves at this point. May they daily experience the unfailing presence of their Lord and the faithful support of their fellow-saints.

You will find the full newsletter below in image form but the November newsletter is also attached here in pdf form. You may also visit the Kleyn's blog to see a more personal side to the life and work in this foreign land.

Classis Meeting, October 31, 2015 - PRC in the Philippines

The Classis of the Protestant Reformed Churches in the Philippines met on Saturday, October 31.

Classis of PRCP Oct 2015 1

One of the main items on the agenda for the classis was the consideration of a request from the Maranatha Protestant Reformed congregation (Valenzuela, Metro Manila) to join the federation with the Berean PRC (Masinag, Metro Manila) and the First PRC (Muzon, Bulacan).

Rev.Daniel Kleyn, PRC missionary-pastor to the Philippines, has posted a report with pictures on his blog about this meeting and its work. You are encouraged to visit that post, but we may also provide this summary from that report.

One of the main items on the agenda was the request of Maranatha PRC in Valenzuela to join the Federation of the Protestant Reformed Churches in the Philippines.  There have been many meetings and months of preparation to determine if we were one in doctrine and faith.  Our Protestant Reformed missionaries (especially Rev. R. Smit) have also labored for many years in this congregation.  We now report with joy, and with thanks to the Lord, that Classis voted unanimously to receive MPRC into the federation.

Philippines Mission Newsletter - August 2015 - Ten Prayer Items

Delegation 2015 1Our missionary in the Philippines, along with the Foreign Mission Committee and the calling church, Doon PRC Council, have just published their latest newsletter of this year.

The August 2015 issue, penned by Elder Jim Regnerus and his wife Brenda (Doon PRC), part of the recent delegation to the field along with Rev.A. Brummel and his wife, gives a unique perspective on this field of labor with all its diversity. Specifically, he gives ten prayer items for us to commit to. Shall we read them and commit to that?

Let's remember to pray for the Kleyns as they serve the Lord and His people in distant lands - and by themselves at this point. May they daily experience the unfailing presence of their Lord and the faithful support of their fellow-saints.

You will find the full newsletter below in image form but the August newsletter is also attached here in pdf form. You may also visit the Kleyn's blog to see a more personal side to the life and work in this foreign land.

Classis of the PRC in the Philippines - Meeting of June 12, 2015

Classis of PRCP 12

Elder Sonny Umali (stated clerk), Elder Eric Mescallado, Rev. Kleyn, Rev. V.Ibe, Rev. J.Flores, Elder Reden Zuniega, Deacon Eric Castano, Deacon Buboy Prosia

From our missionary in the Philippines comes this report on the recent Classis meeting of the PRC in the Philippines. We thank him for this update and for the pictures.

The Classis of the PRC in the Philippines met on Friday, June 12, 2015. The meeting was held in the PRC in Bulacan. This was the 5th meeting since the denomination's formation in 2014. Rev. Flores led in opening devotions, and then Rev. Ibe chaired the meeting.

The business of Classis was mostly routine (reports of standing committees, church visitors, clerk, treasurer, etc.) and Classis was able to finish its work by noon.

The main actions were that Classis (1) adopted a constitution for Emeritus work, (2) adopted a constitution for Translation work, and (3) mandated its standing committee which is responsible, among other things, for contact with other churches to correspond with the Contact Committee of the PRCA with a view to establishing a sister church relationship. It is encouraging to know of the PRCP's desire to work toward such a relationship. We trust the standing committee is able to meet sometime in the near future to get that ball rolling.

The next meeting of the Classis is scheduled for Saturday, October 31 in the Berean PRC.
