Philip, Vina and family were blessed to see their friends and brothers and sisters in Christ in Manila, whilst there friends from South Africa visited them and they also enjoy showing them around their home on Agutaya too.
Things are going well with the Bible Study group in Manila and Philip and Vina’s hearts are encouraged to see faithful men continuing to serve the Lord unwaveringly. While in the city Philip and Vina had an opportunity to get involved in a children’s ministry and it was for them to see these men putting their faith in action! Please continue to pray for the group to grow and to continue to serve the Lord boldly.
While in Manila they were able to get their daughter Angelique’s visa updated and to enquire about their visa renewal next year. It seems things are more complicated than they thought. Please pray with them that the Lords will be done and that we will have peace in the situation.
Their daughter Valerie-Anne, has completed her high school education they have been looking at various options for her future. She really desires to do a Bible Study course. Pray that the Lord will guide them as in their decisions. Also pray for His provision for all that she needs.
Philip is back to the grindstone translating lessons. Please continue to pray that he will be able to complete the lessons quickly and well. Also pray for his helpers to be faithful in helping him and that their hearts will be changed when they hear the truth.
Bible lesson pictures have been printed on vinyl so that they will last and can be reused and left hanging up for long periods. There are more than 100 pictures depicting images from creation to the resurrection that they will use during the teaching.
The time is getting closer when they will start teaching. Will you commit to praying earnestly for the souls on Agutaya? Would you purpose to pray once a day that many would come to know Him? Or even once a week? Philip and Vina need your prayers. Pray as the Lord brings them to mind that they would stand strong and that His will be done through them.
