Halloween is the only True Holiday.



I bet that got your attention. No, I haven’t gone off the deep end.
Let’s look at the holidays. On Christmas many people celebrate the tree
and Santa Claus and presents. I went to my daughter’s school years ago
when she had told me that they had Mennorahs hanging for the Jewish
holidays and Santa Claus for Christmas. I went up to the school and the
Principal told me that they don’t put up “religious” items. I said what
about the Menorah. she said, oh, that’s Jewish, they don’t know its
religious. I said are you kidding? The Jewish people are very
knowledgeable about their religion. To make a long story short, I got
her to hang the manger scene in the main lobby.


On Easter we celebrate the Easter bunny and jelly beans, on Thanksgiving
we clebrate the Turkey and deserts. The list goes on. Yet on Halloween
they dress up like little devils and dead people and other agonized
looking creatures and it is meant to be a night to placate the dead so
they will be nice to us another year. Christians should give out tracts
with the candy but don’t partake in that celebration. even though most
people genuinely do not believe in Halloween, they still partake of it
wherein the Bible tells us not to.


Let’s focus on what we believe and strengthen those things!


Hawaiins and Washatonians!

Washingtonites??


In any case I got an email one day from a brother named Eddie Kim. He
said he was with a group called “Men of Integrity”. Most were from
Hawaii and some from Washington State.They were in the Philippines
ministering in Mindanao and on their way home and he said  they would
love to come to bless us with music and encouragement in the word. I
said, Come on!


14 of some very big guys showed up at our door. Each one looked like
they wrestled aligators. They came and performed by singing and doing a
Hawaiin dance. They preached the word and gave the kids small toys and
soccer balls (which they also played with the kids) They gave us two
Ukeleles and a guitar, a tuner and music. They helped our kids who are
learning with us to learn even more, how to play the instruments. They 
were very generous to our Church. When they were gone, I felt like we
knew them a long time and our friends had left. Hopefully, we will get
to see them again next year. May God bless their wonderful work.

Men of Integrity


Typhoon Pedring,


rolled through, knocking out power and telecommunications for two days.
Our food was ruined and we were without a phone for three weeks because
of slow response of our supplier, Globe Telecom. Yet all in all God
protected us as He always does and we were able to come through it,
unscathed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those who have suffered so
much loss through all of it.


The same situation was found at the Church where we enjoyed an
unintentional, candlelight service. It is so wonderful to see our people
with candles and flashlights still determined to study the word of God
together. It only brings us closer!


5 YEARS!



We have been here 5 years this past July. Three months later we found
this place and incorporated the Church. So we are celebrating our fifth
anniversary in less than two weeks. We have a lot of fun planned. Watch
for our videos for some interesting viewing.

$$MONEY$$


I know you just hate hearing about money. Me too. I hate hearing,
“Honey, we have no food for tonight.” “Honey, the kids need shoes.”
“Pastor Jack, the rent is due.” For the most part, we manage day to day
like many of you. Yet there are things we need so bad and we have to
depend on the generosity of others.


Last month I sent the following note and only a couple of people
responded. Did you think some else would do it or God will provide?
Actually, God provides through people and if the people won’t give we
don’t get. Please look at this list again and see if their is not
something you can do to help. We have a lot of generous people. You can
be one that God will also bless because of your generosity.

Our Needs


We are badly in need of some things here and so I will ask you to pray
and if you are able to help, Please do. This is what we need:


My wife needs to renew her U.S. Passport  $100  and her Philippine Passport is about $10

Laura and Linda both need their Philippine Passports renewed – Total $20
and Linda needs a U.S. Passport at $85


Our upcoming Anniversary is a $600 expense. (This has mostly been taken care of)

Our Aircons broke down in the main room and in the office:Air Conditioners

main room 1&1/2 hp Carrier 21,098.00 = $483.51


                     office .75hp Carrier       16,498.00= $378.09


By the way, our winters are hotter than your summers. This is not a luxury but a necessity.

Also about $60 to paint the Church.
We need less than $1,400 but for us, it just as well be a million.

the exchange rate here now is 43p to $1  When we started it was 56P to $1


So the value of our income is decreasing. thank God every once in a
while he will add a supporter to our list. I hope this month we will get
a few.

 


CHRISTMAS FOR THE PAYATAS KIDS

100-6001

Additionally, we are quickly approaching that time again where we will
hopefully provide a Christmas celebration that without our doing it,
many of these children will not experience the day.


We teach them about the birth of Christ and what it means, we have games
and contests and prizes. We give them footwear and pants and a shirt.
This year we would like to give the girls skirts. We also gibe them a
toy and fill them with a delicious meal complete with desert. It is a
Christmas that they now look forward to.


When I say us, I mean you and PMO/PBC because of your help, we can do
it. We will do the cooking and the shopping and the teaching and the
gameplaying. We will decorate the Church and clean up afterwards. Will
you help with the finances?


Click here to see what you did last year.

The Church had a Pastor appreciation day
and I was blessed to hear the nice things said about me and all the
wonderful cards the children made. Please pray for me as I struggle with
this new diet that has actually been making me feel better.
Also, my three girls are now all musicians. Malou is on the
flute, Linda went to the keyboard and Laura is on the Violin, the
guitar and the keyboard.
Look for the videos to come.

God Bless you all in your health, your wealth and especially your relationship to God.
Pastor Jack, Malou, Laura and Linda

said, Come on!


14 of some very big guys showed up at our door. Each one looked like

something you can do to help. We have a lot of generous people. You can
be one that God will also bless because of your generosity.

Our Needs


We are badly in need of some things here and so I will ask you to pray
and if you are able to help, Please do. This is what we need:


My wife needs to renew her U.S. Passport  $100  and her Philippine Passport is about $10

Laura and Linda both need their Philippine Passports renewed – Total $20
and Linda needs a U.S. Passport at $85


Our upcoming Anniversary is a $600 expense. (This has mostly been taken care of)

Our Aircons broke down in the main room and in the office:Air Conditioners

main room 1&1/2 hp Carrier 21,098.00 = $483.51


                     office .75hp Carrier       16,498.00= $378.09


By the way, our winters are hotter than your summers. This is not a luxury but a necessity.

Also about $60 to paint the Church.
We need less than $1,400 but for us, it just as well be a million.

the exchange rate here now is 43p to $1  When we started it was 56P to $1


So the value of our income is decreasing. thank God every once in a
while he will add a supporter to our list. I hope this month we will get
a few.

 


CHRISTMAS FOR THE PAYATAS KIDS

100-6001

Additionally, we are quickly approaching that time again where we will
hopefully provide a Christmas celebration that without our doing it,
many of these children will not experience the day.


We teach them about the birth of Christ and what it means, we have games
and contests and prizes. We give them footwear and pants and a shirt.
This year we would like to give the girls skirts. We also gibe them a
toy and fill them with a delicious meal complete with desert. It is a
Christmas that they now look forward to.


When I say us, I mean you and PMO/PBC because of your help, we can do
it. We will do the cooking and the shopping and the teaching and the
gameplaying. We will decorate the Church and clean up afterwards. Will
you help with the finances?

The Church had a Pastor appreciation day
and I was blessed to hear the nice things said about me and all the
wonderful cards the children made. Please pray for me as I struggle with
this new diet that has actually been making me feel better.
Also, my three girls are now all musicians. Malou is on the
flute, Linda went to the keyboard and Laura is on the Violin, the
guitar and the keyboard.
Look for the videos to come.

God Bless you all in your health, your wealth and especially your relationship to God.
Pastor Jack, Malou, Laura and Linda

Halloween is the only True Holiday.



I bet that got your attention. No, I haven’t gone off the deep end.
Let’s look at the holidays. On Christmas many people celebrate the tree
and Santa Claus and presents. I went to my daughter’s school years ago
when she had told me that they had Mennorahs hanging for the Jewish
holidays and Santa Claus for Christmas. I went up to the school and the
Principal told me that they don’t put up “religious” items. I said what
about the Menorah. she said, oh, that’s Jewish, they don’t know its
religious. I said are you kidding? The Jewish people are very
knowledgeable about their religion. To make a long story short, I got
her to hang the manger scene in the main lobby.


On Easter we celebrate the Easter bunny and jelly beans, on Thanksgiving
we clebrate the Turkey and deserts. The list goes on. Yet on Halloween
they dress up like little devils and dead people and other agonized
looking creatures and it is meant to be a night to placate the dead so
they will be nice to us another year. Christians should give out tracts
with the candy but don’t partake in that celebration. even though most
people genuinely do not believe in Halloween, they still partake of it
wherein the Bible tells us not to.


Let’s focus on what we believe and strengthen those things!


Hawaiins and Washatonians!

Washingtonites??


In any case I got an email one day from a brother named Eddie Kim. He
said he was with a group called “Men of Integrity”. Most were from
Hawaii and some from Washington State.They were in the Philippines
ministering in Mindanao and on their way home and he said  they would
love to come to bless us with music and encouragement in the word. I
said, Come on!


14 of some very big guys showed up at our door. Each one looked like
they wrestled aligators. They came and performed by singing and doing a
Hawaiin dance. They preached the word and gave the kids small toys and
soccer balls (which they also played with the kids) They gave us two
Ukeleles and a guitar, a tuner and music. They helped our kids who are
learning with us to learn even more, how to play the instruments. They 
were very generous to our Church. When they were gone, I felt like we
knew them a long time and our friends had left. Hopefully, we will get
to see them again next year. May God bless their wonderful work.

Men of Integrity


Typhoon Pedring,


rolled through, knocking out power and telecommunications for two days.
Our food was ruined and we were without a phone for three weeks because
of slow response of our supplier, Globe Telecom. Yet all in all God
protected us as He always does and we were able to come through it,
unscathed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those who have suffered so
much loss through all of it.


The same situation was found at the Church where we enjoyed an
unintentional, candlelight service. It is so wonderful to see our people
with candles and flashlights still determined to study the word of God
together. It only brings us closer!


5 YEARS!



We have been here 5 years this past July. Three months later we found
this place and incorporated the Church. So we are celebrating our fifth
anniversary in less than two weeks. We have a lot of fun planned. Watch
for our videos for some interesting viewing.

$$MONEY$$


I know you just hate hearing about money. Me too. I hate hearing,
“Honey, we have no food for tonight.” “Honey, the kids need shoes.”
“Pastor Jack, the rent is due.” For the most part, we manage day to day
like many of you. Yet there are things we need so bad and we have to
depend on the generosity of others.


Last month I sent the following note and only a couple of people
responded. Did you think some else would do it or God will provide?

don’t get. Please look at this list again and see if their is not
