It is always exciting to see what God is doing around the world! Seventh Day Baptists in the Philippines are again poised for growth. SDB brothers and sisters are now in all the main island groups. Particularly exciting is the work in Mindanao, reaching into areas where Islam is the dominant religion. This work needs considerable prayer support.
Two of our US pastors visited the Philippines recently; In Feb., Greg Olson and his wife, of Grace SDB Church, MN, participated in the opening of a startup group in Manila. While in Apr., Michael Spearl, of Bradenton SDB Church, FL was the guest speaker at the Pastors’ Conference of the United SDB Conference, in Cebu. He was also a part of a special unity meeting of the two Conferences, led by their presidents (Pastor Marcelo, USDB and Pastor Sanchez, SDB Philippines) where they made strides in establishing a cooperative association of Philippines conferences.
We pray for unity among their Conferences and God’s will as they advance the Great Commission.
“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity!”- Psalm 133:1
