Also visiting the church, was a pastor from down in Mindanao, where all the flooding has just taken place. He shared stories about all that has been happening down there and it was very sad. Every member of his church has lost their house and everything they own
Back in the 70's as part of the Jesus Movement a couple came to Manila for a few months, and never returned until a few yrs ago. While they were here, about 12 people were led to Jesus. One was the pastor of the church we visited, who has helped pioneer the Christian movement in the Philippines and SE Asia in the last 40 yrs. He has started hundreds of churches across the country. Another was the visting pastor from Mindanao, and the third is a pastor of the largest church in Manila, with over 3 million members. It is pretty amazing what an amazing ripple affect this couple made.
Monday Lorna goes in for surgery, so please keep her in your prayers. If your would like to donate specifically to the Mindanao flood victims use this link and scroll down until you see the Mindanao heading: http://withinreachglobal.org/invest/invest
Here is a short video of our condo we are living in. Nothing to exciting.
