JUST AS IN THE DAYS OF NOE…

“Mat 24:37  But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Mat 24:38  For as in the days that were before the flood they were
eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day
that Noe entered into the ark,
Mat 24:39  And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.


As I ponder these words I realize more and more what they mean as I
compare them with the events of today. A little girl gets shot in her
room, while doing her home work, another baby shot in the face while in
his stroller. Police are being shot like flies and Farakhan has called
for 10,000 black men to start killing whites.Teenage boys are demanding
to use girl’s locker rooms because they claim that they themselves are
girls. the youngest students are taught about sex and not so much the
biology but the graphic and abnormal sex.

As you hear these things you might be tempted to say this is worse
than in the days of Noe. However the point of the verses is no one pays
attention to it. Evil is all around us and we have “Christians” saying
God doesn’t want them to vote or to speak out or to make a fuss. How
salty does that make us? where is the light now emanating from if not
God’s people.

I don’t know the future. Here in the Philippines they are pushing
to make divorce legal, There is a homosexual on practically every comedy
show and Christians don’t cry but laugh at their antics and it seems
that this Country is following the U.S. down the drain. We always
thought the Philippines was the 2nd most crooked nation next to
Indonesia but now we are realizing that America has just been doing a
better job of hiding it.

God did not show me the future. I don’t know if this is the end. I
will say this, if America does not do a dramatic change, it might just
be the end of this world. I am glad for the work we are doing here. I
will smile when I see my Saviour. I will hear Him say how we did our
best here. That we were watchman on the walls. That we spread the
Gospel, That we have shown the love of Christ.

I pray that each and everyone of you will be able to say the same
thing. That you did all you could do. That life was more than going your
way or doing your thing but going His way and doing His will. That you
spread the Gospel, fed the hungry, when to poor cried out, you answered
instead of ignoring it. The world got this way because of Christians and
their lack of being salt and light. We were not taken over, we were run
over as we laid down. The evil took over the media and the schools and
the local and Federal Governments and just as in the days of Noe, we did
nothing. If not for Noe, none of us would be here. In the face of
adversity, rise up and just proclaim “NOE!”

 

SCHOOL DAYS


This month as happy moms and dads all over America are pleasantly aware
that their children will return to school. It gets tiring seeing the
kids hanging out around the house saying, “I’m bored” or, “when are we
eating?”
Seeing them in school, learning, forging ahead is a great feeling.
Our PBC kids are already in the schools and already received their first report cards.
I am happy to report that they already have shown higher grades than last year.
Thanks to some of you, they have all their school supplies,
uniforms, legal papers and a strong desire to learn. Your generous
giving is causing kids to excel!  Thank You.

Construction Projects

As we mentioned last month, we had a bit of a flooding problem and so we
jack hammered the cement on the side of the building, fixed the catch
basins and installed new drain pipes.

We also told you about how our bathroom of nine years was falling
apart and so we took on the project of a full replacement. I remember
building bathrooms 20 years ago and charging $6,000. Today, a bathroom
like we are building costs $10-$15,000!
Thank God we are in the Philippines. Our total cost will be under
$1000! We do a little each time as we get extral cash. I am happy to say
we are about two weeks from being done. All the wall tiles are up, the
pipes are all installed, there is an electric heater that only heats
when you turn on the shower. We still have to tile the floor of the
shower and the bathroom floor and we are making a glass block wall for
the shower. It should be about two more weeks and we will show the
photos.
The glass block wall will cost about $30. The most expensive thing
is the new sink and toilet which will be about $300. (That’s why it’s
last.)

We ask you to keep praying that we can have the compound but while
we are waiting, we believe in being good stewards with the things God
has given us to work with!


Let’s end this letter showing the purpose of this Church which is to
bring the Gospel of Salvation to the lost and as God gives them to us we
will baptize them.

 

August Baptisms

May God bless all our supporters with that which will make them at peace.
