Philippines: Ministry In Mindanao
Please pray for the growing ministry in Mindanao. We held two Teacher Training Workshops (TTW) in Davao City and Digos City in July. The participants are planning to start new classes in different provinces of Mindanao. Several of them even expressed interest in becoming Area Coordinators in their respective provinces. And they are planning to hold another TTW in September with the same number of participants! Praise the Lord!
Pastor Val Abellanosa led a Teacher Training Workshop (TTW) with nine of his students at Lord Jesus Our Redeemer Church in Digos City. They are planning to start classes in the eight cities and municipalities in Mindanao where they are currently serving.
Pastor Jun Mabano, Pastor Lolito Repaso and I held at TTW at the Southern Philippines Baptist Theological Seminary in Davao City. This TTW was held at the request of the new dean of Seminary Education by Extension of the Southern Philippines Baptist Theological Seminary (SPBTS). We had 27 participants from eight provinces of Mindanao. 21 of the participants signed the Teacher Application. And seven of the participants expressed interest in becoming Area Coordinators of CCI Philippines. We praise God for their willingness to lead classes and a desire to provide students with the knowledge, ministry skills, and Christ-like character necessary for effective ministry.
