April 2020 Newsletter
In the face of human tragedies, people losing jobs, being distant from loved ones, and dealing with countless deaths – both in the news and close to home – it is tough to keep the faith. But in these fragile moments of suffering, believers are all the more called to press on and take heart. The current pandemic leaves our team more devoted in embracing our God-given purpose of making disciples. We have been reaching out to our brothers and sisters, striving to minister to them while being cooped up at home. Huddling in Zoom meeting rooms, we hold remote coaching sessions for Christian leaders in and out of the Philippines.
Randolph and Jot have been conducting coaching sessions for Filipinos in Oman. These contacts are people they touched base with back in October. Marvin currently teaches church leaders in Tabuk, Kalinga. Jean takes over sessions for churches in South Metro Manila, coaching young adult leaders. Meanwhile, for adult leaders in North Metro Manila, Lem and Shamira continue the coaching center that has been started last year.
Although the health crisis has put everything on pause, the mission of making disciples remains at work. God is still in the business of producing more Christ-followers amidst human tragedies. Those who claim to be His should all the more actively take part in His grand, eternal plan.
