Recent Ministry

Pastor Cris and I talked about my ministry in Barili and its various challenges. Pastor Cris suggested choosing a companion to serve with me. I knew there was a student in CKC from Leyte who was searching and praying for an open door to work here in Cebu, so we decided to speak with him. We talked, and he answered that he would pray about it. After a couple of weeks, he chose to work with me, and for over three weeks, he has accompanied me to the area of Barili.

  • Pray for this man, Wilfredo, to continue to have a burden to serve the people of Barili despite the challenges in ministry.

  • Pray for the Bible study in Barili as they are under persecution due to their faith; pray for them to stand firm in their faith.

We climbed up a steep path in Barili to continue witnessing. Partway up, we took a rest for a while and ended up sitting next to two women. I used this chance to ask them if I could share the Word of God. They were open to listening, so I share the gospel. After we spoke, these ladies accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. I know these women are busy each moment of every day, and God created this perfect meeting so they could hear the good news and become believers.

  • Pray for these two women to grow in their new faith and become connected with a church.

We searched for a place to share the gospel and found a small store where we bought some snacks. Our goal was not to satisfy our hunger but to connect with the people who live in this community. I started talking with Amparo, the owner of the shop. While we spoke, I noticed that she did not want to engage with us. She told another lady, Laila, to entertain us and left. We continued to share the Word of God with Laila. Suddenly, Amparo came out of her room and asked what we were talking about. I continued to share the gospel, and they both listened. Later, I discovered that Amparo feared strangers and refused to accept new people as in the past, she had been deceived by someone who stole her jewelry and money. Since this incident, Amparo is hesitant to speak with outsiders, but she listened as I persisted in sharing the gospel. At the end of our conversation, I asked if they wanted to receive Jesus as their Savior. They answered, we already have Jesus in our hearts and are devoted to our religion. I tried to explain further, but they refused. I asked if I could pray for them before we left, and they said yes, so I prayed for them. Please pray for them too.

  • Pray for Amparo and Laila to understand their need for a Savior and a personal relationship with God.
  • Pray for spiritual hunger for these women and a further opportunity to speak with them.
  • Pray for my health and my family’s health.
  • Pray for our church needs for the project fund for a church building.

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.
