Dear Brothers and Sisters,
We received an email last week from Sis. Elen Avila that we wanted to share with you. We are looking forward to a busy year this coming year and definitely ask for your continued prayers for the missionary work that the Lord has given us to do. God bless you.

Dear Brother Daniel:
Greetings in the blessed name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
We have a wonderful time with the mothers and children at Lamlaban (T’boli) and Lamdalag (Lake Sebu). I brought with me the missionary teachers, orphan children and the two faithful mothers who are graduates of our training for women.
We spent the whole day at Lamlaban (T’boli) just to have a wonderful time of fellowship for all of them.
Wyen testify his life to the children and to their mothers. He said, he was once a beggar, theft, homeless, fatherless and motherless. Nobody cares and loves him. Until one day, the Lord took him and placed at the “FATHERS HOUSE”. Now, he said, the Lord Jesus Christ, makes my heart clean and He changed me.. and gave me so many mothers and Fathers. Some of the children shed tears while listening to him and most of the mothers cry because they have seen and felt God’s presence in his life. The orphan girls gave also their testimony and it’s so amazing because it is the power of God who made them what they are now.
We have a special time with all the mothers. We taught them the most simple entrepreneurial business for them to have an idea how to earn money daily as the Lord Jesus Christ as their partner. The two women gave also their testimony on how the Lord established their personal relationship with Him, how the Lord Jesus saved and strengthened their marriage life, how the Lord Jesus Christ helped them to established their children’s relationship to the Lord and became a Godly Entrepreneur. Many of the mothers were challenged and we have seen in their eyes how they were hungry and thirst for the precious Word of God. It’s a wonderful time, because the Lord Jesus Christ sent us to be a BLESSING TO THEM in just a very short period of time.
We were able to distribute the gift packs with new blouses, pants, toys and assorted biscuits and candies inside. The bundle of skirts you brought us here is a part of the gift pack we have given to all the girls.
These are the wonderful things the Lord has been doing in the lives of the children and their mothers.
The children and their parents were sending heartfelt gratitude for everything you have extended to them. Everybody said “THANK YOU VERY MUCH AND GOD BLESS YOU”.
It is the prayer of each one of us for everyone of you there as our brothers and sisters in the Lord to have a more fruitful, wonderful year to come. GOD RICHLY BLESS YOU!
