In the first Lord’s day of August, the Lord has bless Cubao Reformed Baptist Church by adding three new people in the membership…
We received (L-R) Carl Montemayor, Lowey Artaste and Jean Borela.
First is Jerome Mangahas. He is the younger brother of Joseph Mangahas (A recent member in the church and a student at Grace Ministerial Academy). Jerome travels from Malolos, Bulacan (a province near Metro Manila) and it means that he has to save his weekly allowance as a student to be able to fund his commute to the church. Currently, he is studying in a University in Bulacan.
Next is Yllor Sedol. He is a friend of Carl Montemayor (a recent member of the church) and was the one who shared to him the doctrines of sovereign grace. While he became a believer in a Pentecostal church, he was able to access sermons of reformed preachers in the internet. This prompted him to find a reformed church which has brought him to CRBC. The church was moved with his testimony because it is one that gives colorful illustrations of how the Lord has called him from his sin to the Lord Jesus Christ.
Last to give testimony is Natalie Vellacott. She came to the Philippines from the UK as a missions worker assigned in Olongapo. However, it was decided that she would continue her work in Cubao. She works with street children and she helps to bring some of the street children to the church every Lord’s day. Her testimony shows to us how the Lord can get us even if we try to run from Him and to hide in the darkness of the world.
Please do continue to pray for Cubao Reformed Baptist Church. The Lord has indeed been gracious to us, but we plead for more grace.
Soli Deo Gloria!
