New leader sees importance of ministering to children
It is a delight for me to be given the opportunity of thanking you for your support. I praise and thank God for you…for sharing the vision of reaching the children for Him through your support to the ministry of Awana.
The privilege of serving our Living God is beyond compare. I was the sole believer in our family for more than two decades. This did not give me a reason to give up holding to God’s promises. I pressed on, served God and lived for Him. For a couple of years, God has given me the opportunity to serve Him as a volunteer broadcaster in a Christian radio station in Legazpi City.
My family started to see how God works in my life. The Lord provided my needs even if I received no remuneration in my volunteer work. Years later I responded to God’s call of serving Him in Good Shepherd Christian Ministry which was located at Pilar, Sorsogon, Philippines. Again, God showed me the indispensability of trusting Him. Philippians 4:19 which says, ‘And my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in Glory in Christ Jesus’, because very real to me. He taught me to live a life of faith.
Good Shepherd Christian Ministry is a young church. It started with the desire to fulfill God’s commission. My friend started a bible study in one of her relatives home. For two years now God is calling out souls for Him. This is the only Christian church in that place where Roman Catholic and Seventh-day Adventist fanatics live.
The Seed Planters training that God had enabled me to undergo helped me to have a cleaner vision of His ministry to children. I have seen the urgency of reaching out to them and received a very important aid on how to share the Gospel effectively.
There is practically a good number of children that are waiting to be reached in Catamlangar. Please uphold us in prayer that as we go back to our church after the training, God will enable His church there to share in His heartbeat of reaching children and He will touch their hearts to respond to His call. Please pray that we could start this ministry soon.
