- New School Year
Angela walks without crutches.
We had very encouraging visitors and more to come.
Sandie Weaver from the same church is going to lead a vision trip to the LRF - We would like to invite you to this! SEE BELOW
It was a full success! Thank you for your prayers.
Preparations for Graduation are ongoing.
The new school year will start on Juli 19th. Please pray for 10 to 15 students.
We praise God! Angela is without crutches and started also to drive the car again. It was a long way and she still limps a bit and has pain in her hip and leg. But we trust God that he will restore her fully.
We like to invite you again for the vision trip in August. Maybe you know somebody you would like to encourage and invite. Here is again the letter from Sandie Weaver:
Would you be interested in having the opportunity to learn more about what the Lord is doing among one of the least reached people groups in Mindanao?
It is with heartfelt passion that I ask if your church might be interested in sending representatives on a vision trip to learn more about the Life Resource Foundation (LRF), in southern Philippines. The LRF was started in 2002 and appears to be the only evangelical school in the Philippines that specializes in preparing church planters in their own heart language for holistic ministry among the least-reached in the southern Philippines and beyond.
A Biblical foundation is taught during the three-year residential program as well as practical skills in areas such as health care, education and agriculture. Skills like these enable them to enter and minister in places where the gospel isn’t yet known. For example, a team of graduates was accepted into a Muslim community when they brought clean water. During their time of ministry there, 14 people came to Christ. Those 14 have grown into two home churches with 50 believers in all!
Won't you consider coming along on a vision trip to learn more about the LRF? During this time, we will meet with the students and go with them on an exposure/outreach day trip. There will be opportunity to meet with the staff, as well as alumni to hear their testimonies. You will sense the power of what God is doing in a very personal way and learn how your church can be a part of this vital ministry.
We have not as yet set a date for the vision trip, but are looking to see what timing would fit the most schedules. The timing would be in late August or September of 2019. The total cost of the trip including airfare should not exceed $2,000 per person. We are looking to bring representatives from a least three churches. If you are interested please contact me by May 31, 2019.
I am excited about what God is doing and would love to have you come along to visit the LRF! May the Lord bless as you prayerfully consider this opportunity.
Missions Commission Co- Coordinator
The summer camp was a blast! The campers and our students enjoyed the time. It was a lot of work for Richard and Marylan (our staff) but God blessed the time richly. Some of the campers give their lives to Jesus as their Lord and savior and others committed their lives to follow him more wholeheartedly.
Some campers showed interest in becoming students at the LRF. Please pray that God would continue to work in their hearts.
7 Students will be graduating on June 10. We are in the middle of preparations. Please pray for all that has to be done in preparation for this big day and also for the students as they are coming to a closing of this school year.
On Juli 19th our new school year will start. Please pray that God would send as 10 to 15 new students for the new school year. We are exited to see what God is going to do.
Next week one of our staff couples will be at a member-care seminar. Pray that they would be encouraged their ministry as Dean of Students and that we as a whole team could learn from them.
Thank you for working with us on one team in reaching the least reached so that everybody will hear the Good News.
Yours in ChristThe 4 As
