I always thank God, every time I remember all of you. I praise God for all the blessings He has bestowed on me, my family and the ministry of Riverside Berean Gospel Church. I thank God for all your prayers and support. I praise the Lord for growing the church planting ministry; I started in Barangay Rizal, San Carlos City, Negros Occidental Philippines. I have seen the grace and power of God working in the lives of His children by transforming them and becoming faithful believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
I praise God for the life of Erwin Dayanan whom I have witnessed transform from being a drug addicted, unfaithful husband to his wife Noeda, and an irresponsible father to his three children. He has become free from drug addiction and has been faithful and responsible to his wife and children.
Erwin Dayanan has been a great burden to his wife Noeda due to his vices. When I opened a Bible Study in their home every Monday evening, Erwin was hesitant in attending the Bible Study at first, but with the persistent prayers of his wife and the church, he is now faithfully attending the Bible’s study. In fact, He involves himself in the many activities of the church and has invited many of his neighbors and friends to the Bible study. Thank God for the growing numbers of attendance in the church during our Sunday worship.
The church leaders are doing a great job sharing the Gospel with their neighbors, friends, and family. I am blessed to see these children and workers of the Lord growing in His grace and mercy. I thank God for using my life and choosing me to serve Him in the church planting ministry. I am grateful to God for the support of my family and the work He has entrusted to us.
The joy of serving the Lord is incomprehensible. Serving God is a great honor and blessing, only God can give and satisfy.
I am very thankful that the Lord has blessed me with church brethren and leaders who are very supportive of their pastor. The members and church leaders respect and pray for their pastor. I was touched to see the messages given to me by some members of the church during our Pastor’s Appreciation Sunday. It was heartwarming, and I am thankful to the Lord for making me and choosing me to be His servant.
I thank God for healing my self, my children, Jazz 5 and Isaac four months old, from a cough and fever last month. It was heartbreaking to see my children getting sick. But God’s grace and healing are powerful. I also thank the Lord for providing all our needs financially through the support of the Whitefield’s Ministry.
- Pray for good health for my family and me.
- Pray for Erwin Dayanan and Noeda Dayanan would continue to be faithful in serving the Lord especially the Bible study in their home every Monday evening.
- Pray for growth in the lives of the members and leaders of Riverside Berean Gospel Church.
- Pray for wisdom for all the decisions my wife and I will face in our lives.
- Pray that God will bless the church with a church lot and building.
