ANTIPOLO, Rizal, Philippines: July 2009—Greetings from the Philippines, in the name of our only Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
We continue to hold afternoon worship service on Sundays at the study center, with about 10-12 adults and eight children. I have resumed the series on Numbers (“The Pilgrim Church in the Wilderness”) after several Sundays preaching on 1 Peter. We will also resume our membership class study of the Heidelberg Catechism. So far, we have had 5 baptisms and 4 professions of faith, and we pray that the two adults and Rachel would persevere in their preparations for their professions. This week, I’m starting a Bible study for a family in Manila.
Since the positive response I received in the publication of the Tagalog-English Version of the Westminster Confession of Faith, I have embarked on another endeavor: translating and printing booklets and articles that will be of benefit to Filipino pastors.
