Doon PRC Calls Rev.W.Langerak for Missionary to the Philippines

langerak2At their special congregational meeting on Christmas Day (Dec.25, 2014) Doon PRC voted to call Rev.W.Langerak (SE PRC, Grand Rapids, MI) to serve as the next missionary to the Philippines, replacing Rev.R.Smit who will now be returning from the field in March of 2015.

Let us pray for Rev.Langerak and his family as he weighs this significant call, as well as for the field in the Philippines and for Rev.Smit and his family as they seek a call from one of our churches in North America.

Rev.Langerak plans to answer this call by Sunday, January 25.

Doon PRC Extends Call to Rev.C.Griess for Missionary to the Philippines

RevCGriessOn Sunday morning, September 21, 2014, the congregation of Doon (IA) PRC voted to extend a call to Rev.Cory Griess of Calvary PRC (Hull, IA) to serve as the next missionary to the Philippines. We pray for this pastor and his family as he weighs this call, as well as his existing one.

His plan is to answer this call on or before October 19, 2014.

In other news from the Philippines, some of the churches and people with whom our missionaries labor have been affected by the heavy rains and flooding of the past week. This is one such note that appeared in a church bulletin:

Rev. Kleyn and Rev. Smit reported that the latest flooding in the Philippines and the area of Manilla was significant. Rev. Kleyn wrote: " From what we’ve heard from the pastors and members of the various churches, they’re all doing fine. Some will no doubt have some cleanup to do, but I would think it won’t be to the extent of what was needed after Typhoon Ondoy in 2009. We may learn more about this as the day and weekend progresses. We’re thankful everyone is fine, and that the flooding wasn’t worse. Especially thankful to know the Lord’s hand directs all things. Thanks for your prayers and concerns.

The sermon he preaches as part of his examination is planned for the evening of September 23 at Peace.  The oral examination is scheduled for the following day, September 24, while Classis is in regular session. Upon his successful completion of the examination, Doon will be instructed by Classis West to proceed with his ordination and installation. In anticipation of such, the consistory hereby issues a call to worship to the congregation for the anticipated ordination and installation of Pastor-elect Joshua Engelsma into the office of Minister of God’s Word for the evening of Friday, October 3, 2014, at 7:00 pm. Prof. David Engelsma will conduct the service. Prof. Engelsma has also graciously agreed to preach for us the morning service of October 5.
