philmap2The PRC have two foreign missionaries working in the Philippines at present, with metro Manila as the base. Rev.Daniel Kleyn (assisted by his wife Sharon) and Rev. Daniel Holstege (assisted by his wife Leah) carry out the responsibilities for a number of labors with churches, pastors, and contacts throughout this country (See map to the left). Visit their website to learn more about these labors. You may also visit the Kleyn's blog to see a more personal side to the life and work in this foreign land.

In addition, the PRC help support the mission labors of the Covenant PRC (N.Ireland) in Limerick, Ireland, where Rev. Martyn McGeown serves as missionary. And, several of our congregations are involved with labors in India (Georgetown PRC) and in Myanmar (Hope PRC, Walker). Our sister church in Singapore (Covenant ERC) is also involved in mission labors in India, in Kolkata, through her missionary Rev. Emmanuel Singh.

FMC Delegation to Visit Myanmar

LaningJamesRev. Jim Laning (Hull PRC, IA) and Rev. Cory Griess (Calvary PRC, Hulll, IA), on behalf of the Foreign Mission Committee, leave this week for Myanmar where they will spend a week visiting with contacts and hosting a conference with a view to fulfilling the mandate that synod gave to the FMC in Article 33 of the 2013 Acts of Synod. Please remember these pastors in prayer as they travel and labor in Myanmar and leave their families behind.  Lord willing they will depart on Thursday, November 7, and will return on Saturday, November 16. Contacts from 6 different regions of the country (roughly about 40 men) will be traveling (some of them a considerable distance), to meet with them and to receive instruction. RevCGriess

The decision of the 2013 PRC Synod in Art.33 was as follows:

That Synod approve the FMC sending a delegation to investigate and to advise synod about possible labors in Myanmar without the presence of full-time missionaries. 

Four grounds:

a. There is no opportunity presently to send American missionaries to labor full-time in Myanmar.

b. It may be possible to send regular delegations to give instruction to native Burmese pastors.

c. Rev.Titus informs us that he has numerous contacts in Myanmar who are seeking instruction in the truth of the Reformed faith. It would be good for us to investigate this by sending a delegation to do some preliminary mission work among the saints there.

d. Rev.Titus, whose native languages are Chin and Burmese, is also able to speak English fluently, thus making it possible for us to speak to the saints in Myanmar, whether they speak in Burmese or in Chin.

Update on the Proposed PRC Classis in the Philippines

VernonIbe-1Original announcement: The organizational meeting for the Classis of the PRC of the Philippines is planned for Thursday, October 31. The churches forming this new Classis are the Berean Protestant Reformed Church (Cubao, Metro Manila, Rev. Vernon Ibe) and the First Reformed Church of Bulacan (Muzon, Bulacan Rev. John Flores). The meeting will include signing ceremonies, a meditation from Scripture, singing, prayer of thanksgiving, a group photo, as well as an opportunity to hear greetings and thanksgiving to God from other churches. The brethren there would be thrilled with your greetings (card,
letters) at this meeting. Send to: P.O. Box 1173 ACPO, Antipolo City, Rizal 1870, The Philippines.

UPDATE: "The Consistories of the Berean Reformed Church and the First Reformed Church in Bulacan in the Philippines inform our ecclesiastical friends in the CERCS CPRNI, and PRCA that regretfully it was necessary for us to postpone our organization as a federation in order to have more time to complete the necessary legal and procedural preparations for proper organization.  Continue to pray for us as we look forward to the day when the Lord by His providence and blessing will make it possible for us to be established as a denomination of faithful churches of Jesus Christ in the Philippines, knit together in the blessed truth and Gospel on Wednesday, April 9, 2014, if our God wills."

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
