Motherhood: A Strenuous Occupation

Serving little ones as a mother is never an easy task in life. Mothers fulfill the incredibly powerful role of nourishing and protecting the infant human life in their bodies until delivering the child at birth.  The job is not finished at birth, intense as that process may be. In continuation of that role, mothers raise the children of the next generation. Birth brought the child into a hostile world. A newborn baby is not capable of surviving without a caregiver; God blessed them with a mother. Mothers, including adoptive moms, spend countless sacrificial hours guiding, encouraging and nourishing children into adulthood.

Send A Smile

This is an awesome opportunity for our friends and partners living in the San Diego area to make a tangible gift to bless a pastor’s family. We will be shipping several Balikbayan “Friendship” boxes to our Filipino pastors living in Cebu. We want you to provide some gift items to add to the books and other materials we already have for the boxes (Provide New items only – no used clothing etc.).

We are gathering the gifts at our office on September 4th or 5th between 10 am – 2 pm.  We will host an open house so come on by and enjoy some refreshments and greet our staff.  Our office is located in San Marcos.  The driveway comes off of Caminito a Casa from La Moree Rd.

Set Free

When the people trapped in the bondage to evil spirit worship are set free, there is great rejoicing. The outward demonstration of what God has done in the heart of the believer requires courage in the face of the threats from the demonic realm. Justine, a witchdoctor—one who served the demons by calling upon them to issue curses or tell fortunes—has come to faith.

Justine the former witch doctor, now a disciple of Jesus!

She made a complete surrender when she gave her life to Christ. The church gathered to pray as she brought the fetishes that she had been using to engage the spirit world for her hexes and fortune telling. These items were valuable to her since people paid her great sums of money to put curses on others and to tell them their fortunes.

Many villagers gathered—watching—waiting—waiting—waiting to see if harm would come; would the spirits she has served now strike her, would she become ill or even… death! God protected her! No harm occurred!

Now many people are coming to the church in Rutete searching for the same knowledge in the gospel of Jesus Christ that freed this witchdoctor from her imprisonment.
