January 27 -1The following is the latest correspondence from Pastor Allan.

Pastor Wayne,

Have a blessed day to you and to your family.
I can’t find any a words that could expressed our gratitude and thanksgiving to God and to those churches behind the success of our first ever cantata and worship service to our new building site. At first, we are hesitant pursuing the said event for we all know that the building is not that fully furnace as we are still on our usual plastering works and premier paintings and finishing mode. But with the grace of God and His complete guidance we really pushed the scheduled activity and yes He made it for us. Thank you God the almighty.
We have a good attendance both in the morning and in the afternoon service. We are surprised with the presence to some of our neighbors who are blessed by God’s message of repentance and grace especially the Batalla family. (lot owner ). We have a good conversation with Mr Batalla and his daughter who also is a doctor by profession.
The message of Paul in Acts chapter 4:34 made us realized how important is the Love of the Church in supporting its needs by selling their portions to supply those who are in needs and to God’s ministry as well. The Jerusalem Church example is very inspiring one.
Please Continue praying for us into this ministerial works of God. I know there are some challenges in the future , we the DCMBC has already built up and established because of your continued sympathy and prayer.
Include also in your prayer , Souls being save! We have a candidate for Baptism this Sunday, May God will give us a good and brighter day.
Godspeed!

Pastor Allan

Wayne Stringer; This is what PMD is all about, helping church with a tool that they can truly begin to serve the Lord and carry out the Commission themselves in their own land.

DAVAO MBC REPORT CONSTRUCTION AFTER 75DAYS

Below is the report received from Pastor Allan Abais. The most encouraging thing about the ministry of PMD and noted in this report, is to see how the churches who have been helped, their members and pastors, begin to grow, to begin to support with their finances and shoulder the responsibilities of taking care of the ministry God has given them. There are many area’s in the Philippines that still need help from sister churches in the U.S., but the help should be directed toward helping them become sufficient within themselves as they trust God. This is the vision of PMD, to assist and then let them go to carry out the Commission on their own. We are seeing churches in the Philippines unite together like never before. Praise God!

Pastor Wayne,

Sorry for the delayed update. Bro Joe and I encountered some problem on our desktop specially on uploading our latest pics. Sister Lizano took it over for us on her mobile phone. I ask here to upload the pics she had taken to the DCMBC FB account and I thank the Lord for her effort.

This past few days is a great week for us. Pastor Abner Tuazon despite of his busy days he still find time visiting our place and checked the building construction of how it is done for now and he was surprised about the progress saying the building is huge and is more beautiful than what he expected. There are members also of the other church of the same faith feel time to be with us and even helped us do the painting on the window fence. Pastor Manny Quiazon and company also visited the construction site last Monday and is happy for the development of the building. We enjoyed taking our lunch on Pastor Manny’s house on the next day 6 hours before Pastor Abner’s flight back to Luzon , his home place.

We, the DCMBC members would like to extend our deepest gratitude to the FMD and the PMD and to all of the brethren in America for their love and devotion for these glorious works of God in the Philippines. Pastor Wayne, I really appreciated the concept of the PMD specially on the “faith promise” that you shared for us on your last visit. Now , many members of our church started to feel the needs and do some pledges. Even our Engineer ( Loy ) donated 50 bags of cement ( about 13,000 pesos ) . Sister Joy ( bro. Joe’s wife ) pledge to buy tiles for the pulpit, ( about 20,000 pesos ) my wife Jerlie been encourage to donate the color red tiles for the isles. ( about 20,000 pesos). Brother Ericson Lizano and his wife Ivy also donated the adjacent lot they bought from brother Robert Ticzon of Bethsaida church for our parking area and for other purpose of development as we develop the building progressively. Now , we also understand why we need to work out the 15% remainder from the entire budget for us to exercise the LOVE of giving and helping other church build their church for the HONOR and GLORY of the body of CHRIST.

” Unto Him be Glory in the Church “.

As for this weeks’ work, we need to finish the front view of the building and the pulpit area, that is why we focused on finishing the GI roof and concreting on its floor. more on plastering for the next week and hoping we could start on placing its windows.

Last week, we experienced a magnitude 5.7 earthquake. every one is shocked and some of our paid workers is scared of something might happen to the building construction. Glory be to God no body got hurt and no single crack of the building’s foundation was found. Truly, The Church is made of God’s hand! AMEN

Godspeed!!

update on relief

I Talked with Pastor Abner this PM, He and his group have just returned from their trip to the area where typhoon Yolanda hit. The funds they collected and we wired them to purchase supplies has been depleted; he stated he had $21.00 in his ATM and $100 in his passbook account. Food, medicine, and other supplies were purchased and delivered to the people. He will be sending a full accounting of all funds showing where they were spent. It is important to remember; besides giving help physically they were giving hope to these people. The people were so appreciative of their coming and moved by their show of love and concern; they were excited because no one else had reached them before. Some in the remote area were actually thankful Yolanda had hit. This was a great opportunity for the churches in the area to minister to the spiritual needs of the people.
Abner will be sending a full report and outline their plans for the days ahead. A medical mission is planned for Bahol for the first of December. He stated the church there is surrounded by tents of the victims of the storm and needs medical attention. These are people that have been brought in.
There are two church buildings that need to be rebuilt right away; one is in Capiz and the other Iloilo, both of these were being used as learning centers for children in preschool. The cost to rebuild will be approximately $1,850. each as lumber is readly available. There were fifteen (15) other church buildings destroyed in the areas visited, but some only need G.I. sheets of tin and nails because lumber is available there. They probably can be rebuilt for around $500. each. Understand these building are in the villages. He stated that if they had a couple of chain saws they could cut lumber from the trees, and could be loaned to the different pastors. To rent one is very expensive, the cost of a saw is about $1,400.00.
Pastor Shinji Amari and four of his missionaries visited Abner and stated many of his missionaries in Visayas areas were in need of help. He was told as funds were available they would be considered.
The problem is funds, $7,000.00 has been received and sent to aid in the relief already, there is approximately $3,000.00 in the account and will be wired tomorrow. Part of this is designated for medicine. We need additional funds, not only for food and medicine, but also to help with providing shelter. We need to help these churches get their buildings back up so there will be a place not only to worship but also can be used as shelters until the people get their homes rebuilt.
If you have wanted to help and did not know how, this is your opportunity. We sat at our Thanksgiving tables today and gave thanks for all that we have , most of us feasted on Turkey and dressing, and ate our fill. I am thankful for that, but there are those that do not have that luxury, and we can help. Please do it now, today, send an offering! Maybe someone, a church or auxiliary would feel led to help with the purchase of a chain saw. There is ample opportunities to help, I am thankful for those that are helping, not just through PMD, but the other ministries as well.
Send all offering to PMD, PO Box 31 New Boston, TX 75570 designated for Philippine Disaster Relief and it will get to the people in need.

Davao MBC update Nov. 27th

Nov 27nov 27-2nov 27-3nov 27-4nov 27-6nov 27-7nov 27-8nov 27-10

nov 27-11nov 27-12nov 27-14I Received the following report from Pastor Allan of Davao MBC. The work is going well and soon there will be another beautiful building in the Philippines through the efforts of Philippine Mission Development. This could not be possible without the prayers and aid of all the churches and individuals who are helping. We had some problems getting pictures, but Bro. Joe took care of that.

Pastor Wayne,

“Oh How good and pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity”..This is what I had observed for this past few weeks when the PMD and the FMD joined hand in hands and has been very busy making an effort to gather all the support from different churches here and in America to help serving those victims of super typhoon Yolanda. (Haiyan). Perhaps this gonna be the reason why God showed His judgement for us to UNITE and established the Love of God and His works to this idolatrous place. We observed during Pastor Abner’s visit to Iloilo and to nearby places where they gave and distributed the relief goods, they used the church building of one of our brethren in there as a point area for the team. I can see how useful is the building be as a shelter for their operation.

The same reason why our church (DCMBC) is more eager now to finish the building project. Being a landmark of God’s love and a shelter for thirsty souls.

For this entire week, we focused on masonry, trusses and purlins, we already ordered in advance the GI sheets and other materials for the roofing amounting to almost Php60,000 ( to be included on next week’s financial report ). We start plastering some walls of the building, mostly inside and starting on clearing the floor area especially at the pulpit side.
