Since I returned on October 9th 2014 from 20 days preaching in The Agusan region of the Philippines, the gospel has been advancing in this region.
AN APPEAL FOR STRUGGLING PHILIPPINE CHRISTIAN PASTORS AND THE WORK OF GOSPEL
PASTOR LUBEL AND TEAM FEED HUNGRY CHILDREN FROM SQATTERS AREAS
In 2014 while travelling and preaching The Wonderful JESUS in the Philippines, I formed strong bonds with pastors. To this very day that relational bond exists. The pastors are full of love for Jesus and “ sold out” in the mission of preaching the gospel.
While I was there with them I became very aware of the need for prayer and practical financial help to be given to them. The were (compared to western pastors) materially poor with meagre resources and the need continues to this day to help them! Many of the pastors in the provinces are poor and in need of food (mainly rice). There is also the need to support feeding of malnourished children in poor “squatters” camps; this mission of mercy has started to bear much fruit in the salvation of families and the establishing of churches.
RADIO MINISTRY – A VITAL TOOL WITH GREAT IMPACT AND IMPORTANCE
While in Butuan I had a “slot” on two of Pastor Lubel Quitoriano’s Christian radio broadcasts; these vital transmissions by Pastor Lubel continue. It is imperative that the gospel continues to go out on the airwaves in this region. Only a minority of the regions inhabitants are born again and truly saved! Also, there are many false cults in this region. So the radio ministry needs to continue today, having a great impact and importance. All of this takes finance!
MY RECENT RETURN TO THE RADIO MINISTRY
Recently, Pastor Lubel has expressed an eagerness that he and I work together in this radio ministry; I am presently sending mp3 sound files up for weekly radio transmission.
AN APPEAL FOR HELP
AND SO IF ANYONE FEELS ABLE AND LED OF THE LORD TO FINANCIALLY SUPPORT THE RADIO MINISTRY AND/OR THE PASTORS DAILY RICE, THAT WOULD BE SUCH A BLESSING TO THE PASTORS AND FAITHFUL IN THIS REGION!
The standard cost for a months Christian radio transmission is 7000 pesos, ( approx £101) – a great burden for a pastor with very limited resources!
PERSONAL NOTE: My beloved brothers and sisters I am aware that many of you are already giving till it “ hurts” to the Lord’s work. But unashamedly I’m making these needs known through the coming year and praying that God may direct some to help this cause. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT I AM NOT ASKING FOR NEEDS FOR MY OWN MINISTRY AND TRAVEL. My aim is simply to facilitate communication between any of you that wish to help, and the pastors and the leaders who tirelessly serve Christ.
I will leave with a prayer that each and every one of you continues to enjoy God’s grace in your spirits, soul and body. God bless you all and love from Marcus your brother and friend.
