Recent Ministry

My wife and I have been visiting houses to evangelize and give out gospel tracts. We regularly encounter many unusual situations and some different excuses of why people are not willing to receive us and instead reject our sharing of God’s Word. Sometimes they are too busy with household chores like laundry. As one old woman informed us, people in this community are too busy gambling and cannot stop to listen. We were not discourage from sharing the gospel in the neighborhood. Other people were willing to receive our words despite being busy. We encountered some people who were drying fish. We purchased their product so that we could start a conversation with them, and they took the time to listen to our words. We are still praying, hoping, and believing that more people will accept Christ into their lives. At the end of the day, we were blessed to have people who received Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.

  • Pray for the evangelists to not become discouraged by the excuses given by those who are not willing to hear the Word of God.
  • Pray for those who listen to be convicted and understand their need for a Savior.
  • Pray for wisdom and opportunities to begin conversations that lead to the sharing of the gospel.
  • Pray for discernment as the evangelists listen to the unbelievers and frame responses to their questions.

When I wake up in the morning, I still feel tightness in my neck and traveling long distances is uncomfortable. My doctor informed me that healing will take time, but it is hard to be patient for my neck to return to its normal state. I wish to overcome this challenge sooner to continue reaching the people with the gospel message. My wife also has trouble with long distances as she becomes dizzy. We sometimes use the motorbike for travel as the condition of the car makes it risky to travel for long miles.

  • Pray for health and healing for Pastor Jerry and his wife.
  • Pray for physical strength to continue reaching the people in the surrounding areas with the message of hope that is only found in salvation from God.

In previous reports, I requested prayer for a permanent place of worship. In the church I planted in Lapu-Lapu, our contract to lease the land will end in the fall of this year. It is only a few months away, and we will need to leave this place. We persisted in prayer and pledged to give each month resulting in our saving two-hundred-thousand pesos in the past three years. We have been searching for land. One day, my wife’s phone rang, and the person asked to speak with me as they knew someone who was selling land. We talked to the owner and negotiated to buy a specific space. We prayed that the Lord would bless our transaction. I told the owner that we had not yet saved a sufficient amount to pay in full for the land. He was willing to discuss the matter, so we went to his house. I asked if we could satisfy the down payment and then pay the remainder each month. The total amount for the land is nine-hundred-thousand pesos. The first installment should have been half of the total, but the owner was willing to receive our two-hundred-thousand pesos with the remainder paid monthly.
We signed the agreement.

God answered our prayers! Praise the Lord. 

  • Pray for the remaining funds for the land and church building. Praise the Lord for finding the land and the successful negotiations with the owner.
  • Pray for the safety and good health of the church planters in the Philippines.
  • Pray for passion and perseverance in their ministries.
  • Pray for the field director, Pastor Cris, for God to continue to use him and his family.
  • Pray for God to open doors for Bible studies and for people to accept God’s Word in my assigned area.

Jerry Quimat Testimony

My name is Jerry, and I was raised in a Christian family here in the Philippines. At the age of twelve, I committed my life to God and accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior and was baptized. While in high school, I had kidney problems and almost died. I was in the hospital for days and was transferred to another hospital, but my situation did not improve. I asked the Lord what His plan was for my life? I prayed for His perfect will and also asked God what he wanted me to do? I felt a firm conviction of the Holy Spirit and asked God to heal me and save me from death if his plan was for me to be in ministry. After I prayed, I experienced the hand of God in my life. The Lord healed me from my kidney problem, and the doctor was amazed at my recovery. I was discharged from the hospital, and my body was healed. I went back to high school and finished my studies, after high school, I enrolled in Bible school. It took me three years to complete my studies, once I was ready, I started working in a ministry, and I have been doing God’s work until this day.
