Attached is our yearly report that we request of the churches who have been blessed with the tool of a new building. I think you will be impressed as you see how God has blessed the churches and ministries of these churches; as they use the tool of a building to reach out into their community and grow to the point they are spreading the gospel, starting new missions and eventually these missions becoming churches.
The Ministry of Philippine Mission Development had a very good year even though the Covid Virus shut most everything down, both in the States and Philippine Islands. Offerings were down some, but remained good in spite of the slowdission
own in our economy. For the year designated monies that came through PMD amounted to $91,621.08; designated for the projects, travel, salary and love offerings.
The work on building #13, Good News MBC, above Clark Air Base was shut down for several months, but allowed to resume in June and completed in October. Dedication of the building was held, in my absence, with Pastor Abner filling in for me. It is a very beautiful building and an asset to the Lord’s work in the Philippines.
Since the inception of PMD there have been thirteen buildings completed. Ground breaking ceremonies were conducted for #14, Berean MBC, Ozamis City on September 18th, and construction began October 23rd. We already have all the funds needed for this project. We are currently receiving funds for #15, Emmanuel Polomolok MBC at Polomolok, South Cotabato. At the close of our books in September a little over $12,000.00 has already been collected for this building, needing only $38,000.00 for the projected amount.
The fantastic thing about the Ministry of PMD is what the churches are doing as a result of having a beautiful building. The thirteen churches, who are completed, reported for the past year, 20 missions and missionaries sent out by the individual churches, the co-sponsoring of 11, one of these is a foreign missionary to Cambodia, of these there were 557 profession of faiths, 281 baptisms, 2 churches organized, the support of 4 seminaries, two of these are sponsored and located in the PMD assisted buildings.
Without the prayers and support of churches and individuals this would not have been possible. I praise God for the blessings He has poured out on this ministry and the churches of the Philippine Islands.
Thank you for being a part of this Great Ministry.
