Missionary R.Smit to End Labors in the Philippines

 RSmit teaching in Sipalay-2013The Foreign Mission Committee and the Council of Doon PRC as the calling church have agreed to honorably release Rev. Richard Smit from his missionary labors in the Philippines on or around July 1, 2015 due to the changing needs of his family, the completion of significant goals on this mission field, and the belief that his particular work there is drawing to a close. 

They also wish to convey their thanks to God for Rev. Smit's faithful years of missionary service and his family's devotion to this work.  Rev. Smit will be recommended soon for a call to the pastoral ministry in our churches as his work in the Philippines officially ends next year.

The full letter from the FMC and Doon PRC which was sent to the PRC congregations is attached here in pdf.

Provident CC Outreach Conference

Missionary-pastor Daniel Kleyn recently participated in a special conference hosted by the Provident Christian Church in Marikina, the Philippines. He made a special post about it on his blog, which included several pictures. You are encouraged to visit that post here, while learning about the basics of the conference here.

This past Thursday (April 17) was a public holiday in the Philippines.  Provident Christian Church in Marikina, one of the churches we are working in, decided to have an outreach conference that day.  The people invited many friends and family.  Some of the members did this by handing out copies of the pamphlet, "Knowing The True God" by Rev. Houck with an invitation to the conference tucked inside.  In God's providence, several visitors attended.

Philippines Mission News

MaranathaPRC-ValenzuelaThe recent delegation from Doon PRC and the FMC have returned home. If you have not yet seen the posts on the Kleyn's blog about this visit, you ought to do so - complete with plenty of fine pictures!

 

The combined consistories of the Berean Protestant Reformed Church and the First Reformed Church of Bulacan will hold their next meeting this Friday, January 31, 2014, the Lord willing.  The meeting will be held in the Berean PRC’s building in Mayamot, Antipolo City.

 

In that connection, our missionaries also report that the government recently approved a name for the proposed federation of churches in the Philippines. Here is the announcement they made:

“The combined consistories of the Berean Protestant Reformed Church and the First Reformed Church report that the desired name for our new denomination has been approved by the SEC after our second attempt at registration with the SEC.   “Federation of Protestant Reformed Churches in the Philippines, Inc.”  is the name that has been approved by the SEC.  As a result, the final step of the registration process with the SEC can be completed by the end of January.  We give thanks to our heavenly Father for this good news, and seek His continued blessing upon our preparations for the organizational meeting on Wednesday, April 9, 2014, according to His will.”

 

Let's remember to pray for our missionaries and their wives and families, for Rev.V.Ibe and his family, for Rev.J.Flores and his family, for the other pastors, and for the saints there. May the Son of God continue to gather, defend, and preserve to Himself by His Spirit and Word, out of the whole human race, that church chosen to everlasting life (Heidelberg Catechism, Q&A 54).
