This weeks ministry update is all about our ministry in the Philippines. As you know, Unsheltered International Philippines does two main things: Ministering to children through the meal centers and ministering to the homeless through the rescue center and street ministry.
The challenges brought by COVID have had a very real impact on these ministries, however, our team has persevered and adjusted in order to continue preaching, teaching, and practically helping those in great need.
From Mindanao, Pastor Raul Remada reported to us recently that the Lord has really been good to them so far in 2021. They have started a new mission work in a place called Diboloc. They were able to baptize two men last week and there are Bible students and other pastors helping in this new ministry.
Their meal center had 176 in attendance during January with 13 salvations. Here are a couple meal center pictures.
From the Bacolod City and Talisay area, Merliza has reported recently that they have had great challenges due to recent flooding that began on January 1st. She said that despite the floods, and COVID, God is still reaching his creation with the gospel message.
The Christmas gift giving was a huge success, they were able to start a new church at the meal center in Handumanan, and commission four new pastors. The street ministry is also going well. They have been busy for the Lord! Here are some of their pictures.
We appreciate all of our sponsors who make the ministry in the Philippines possible each and every year. Without your generosity and compassion, we wouldn't be able to do what the Lord has called us to do at this level. Please continue to pray for the entire Unsheltered International Philippines team.
