On this October 16, 2016 Lord's Day a few news updates on the PRC mission work in the Philippines may be noted.
First, Rev. Nathan Decker (Trinity PRC, Hudsonville, MI) announced today his decline of the call from Doon PRC to serve as third missionary to the Philippines. May the Lord give him and his family as well as Doon PRC peace in this decision.
Second, Rev. Daniel Holstege, recently called and installed as second missionary to the Philippines, is back on the mission for a few weeks to become more acquainted with the work and to prepare to move there with his family in early 2017, D.V.
From this Sunday's bulletin of the Provident Christian Church in Marikina we find these notices:
Rev. Holstege will be leading our second service today, the Lord willing. We welcome him to our pulpit and fellowship. Rev. Holstege is preaching this morning in the Berean PRC for their first worship service.
Invitation To Kleyns This Afternoon: After our worship services today, everyone is invited to the Kleyn’s house (34 Sunrise Drive, Beverly Hills Subd., along Ortigas Extension, Antipolo City) for a late lunch and a time of fellowship. We hope this will be a good opportunity for visiting with each other, and also with Rev. Holstege before he departs on Tuesday.
As that note states, Rev. D. Holstege plans to return home on Tuesday, October 18. May the Lord grant him travelling mercies, and may He continue to prepare him and his wife and family for these busy labors.
Let us also remember Rev. D. Kleyn and his wife Sharon in their ongoing labors in that land.
Below are a few pictures the Kleyns posted on their blog after Rev. Holstege's visit.
