Pastor 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:
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
Dearest Salt Shakers' Readers,
Family Seminar 2013
The Family Support Ministry is delighted to invite husbands and wives, and everyone to join the annual Family Seminar on Saturday, 27 July from 3:30pm to 5:30pm. The theme of the seminar is "Growing in Faith Together as Husband and Wife". Our dear pastor, Rev. Andy Lanning will be the speaker for this special occasion.
The July 2013 Newsletter of Covenant PRC, our sister church in N.Ireland, has been published! Read about a recent wedding there, plans for the 2013 BRF conference, a presentation on Rev.Titus and the PRC of Myanmar, some new members who recently joined, and the Stewarts' trip to the U.S. About the last mentioned you may read this:
Our trip to the US is drawing very near (16 July–13 August), and I would imagine we will be there before many of you read this. I am to preach in Calvary and Heritage (21 July), Lynden (28 July), Randolph (4 August), and Grandville and Faith (11 August), plus give three PowerPoint presentations on the CPRC from the perspective of its sister church relationship with the PRC and attend the weddings of a niece and a nephew. We are looking forward to being in your midst again.
Ss is glad to release the 20th issue of the Salt Shakers. If you enjoyed reading the magazine and have spiritually benefited from it, truly it was only because of the Lord’s marvelous grace to use the weakest of instruments both to write and compile this Salt Shaker Magazine. To God be the glory.
The annual BPRC’s conference was held on April 26. Rev. R.Smit and Rev. D.Kleyn gave the four speeches concerning “The Sovereignty Of God Over All Things” (Sovereignty and Creation, Sovereignty and Salvation, Sovereignty and the Inspiration of Scripture, Sovereignty and the Responsibility of Man). To read about this conference and to listen to the speeches given, visit the Kleyn's blog.
