This is not our Church anniversary which will be the first week of November when we incorporated as Payatas Quezon City Baptist Church And Ministries, Inc. This is My family’s personal ten year anniversary.

Here is what I wrote the day after we arrived:We landed here on July 21st and This is our story.

July 22, 2006 We left LAX airport on July 19th as scheduled. Our promise to trust God for that date being fulfilled, we crossed the Pacific Ocean on our way to the Philippines. With one short stop in Guam for re-fueling, we made…Click to read the story

We have faithfully reported at least once per month over ten years, as to the progress of this ministry. We also kept a chronological photo documentation consisting of over 50,000 photos, showing the work that God has done in this place. Click to see the albums.

It sometimes has been a rocky trip.
I lost my mom whle preparing to come here, then my sister, then my father and just last week I lost my brother. I am reminded that we are all dust and the battle is to deliver the good news to as many as possible before their time to go arrives.

As you can see, we need more room. Please pray so that God will give us the compound. We dream big because we have a big , generous God.
Blessings Abound!
We teach that as we obey God in all that He says, God will increase us. Our support, our education, our mental, spiritual and marital health. In other words, in everything.

Some of our ladies started their own group to make uniforms for the schools. They have also taken on purchasing the tanks of gas we need for the feeding program.

Our youth has taken on the cost of a bag of rice every month. That leaves P4000 each month for the food. We already have one donor who pays for one of those weeks. Only three to go.

A couple of the men are making floor mats. One of them is Lito, the grandfather of Vanessa and Marianne. If you recall, he takes care of his two grand children. He is in a wheel chair and is expecting to get an operation on his legs. He is such an encouragement to show everyone can do something.

COLLEGE REGISTRATION

Our first two graduates of Bible College have registered this week for their final stage of learning. One will go on to be an English teacher to foreign students and the other will be a C.P.A. both will continue with the Church and continue to be a blessing.
It will cost $2000 per year for both of them. Please pray for the finances.
They are the first of our 20 year program to raise and educate the Payatas kids giving them every opportunity to succeed.
