November Update 2008
Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ,
Yesterday we had our second anniversary of the incorporation of the Church. There was approximately 300 people who shared all or part of the day with us. That is about 100 more than last year!
Our theme was �expand our Coasts� from the prayer of Jabez.
Our children sang, recited scripture and our adults gave wonderful testimonies of how their lives had been changed do to God using our church to lead them to Him.
We had two giant Lechons, (roast pig) and plenty of food. My good friend Pastor Reuel Palit � ang brought the message and our one and only Missionary Dicusin taught the Sunday School. We had guest singers and we had a blessed day in the Lord.
Sister Malou must have eaten too much as she was sick this morning but despite being sick she went off to our medical clinic to witness to the patients. Malou is celebrating her 34th birthday today.
Our landlady has built walls and gates around our property and it is really looking good. Keep checking, the photos may be up by the time you get this. http://www.escobia225.multiply.com/photos We have over 3000 photos already!
We also were able to get the man who was making the walls to build us a baptismal! Our first baptisms should be held this Sunday.
Our Church has reached the breaking point. We need more room. Yesterday we were bringing the youth down the road to a covered area to make room for the adults in the church. Our Sundays are full as well as our Wednesday nights. Please pray for the Payatas Baptist Compound to happen.
This is a shorter news letter as we just sent a double issue a few weeks ago.
I would ask you to pray real hard for this election in the U.S. I have never felt such a eerie feeling about a candidate before in my life. The Bible talks about people being blinded and not seeing the truth. That is so true today. I have had people angry at me for saying Oprah was no good while anyone can get quotes right from her mouth where she declare those foolish who follow the cross of Christ.
Take a look at this video and then pass it along:http://usawakeup.org/USSA.htm
God bless you all and have a blessed Thanksgiving.
Pastor Jack, Malou, Laura and Linda
