Philippines Update Jun’20

The brothers and sisters in the Mayantok Ecclesia in the central Philippines mostly work as construction labourers in other parts of the country.

Sadly many of them are unable to work at the present time and one brother had to walk over 100km to get home.

Pakistan – Punjab Region Jun’20

Government COVID19 lockdowns has meant no work or food for millions of day labourers, and small businesses.
While Moslems have rallied and are supporting their own, there is little help for Christians. Already food parcels have been made up and distributed to Christadelphians, their extended families and interested friends in seven centres.
No preaching weekends are possible … just family meetings. There is a focus on daily Bible readings and generally catching up is by phone or WhatsApp communication. Regular Bible classes from Australia continue.

Despite this: on 4th May in the city of Hasilpur seven people were baptised.

Philippines May’20 Update: Covid19 in Philippines

COVID19 has raised challenges for our Brethren and Sisters.

  • Tighter restrictions are in place than in Aus/NZ making it hard for Ecclesia to gain encouragement by meeting.
  • Many either lack the technology or good internet connection which has allowed Aus/NZ Ecclesias to continue to communicate under restrictions
  • Many members haven’t been able to work and therefore had no pay to support their families.
  • Sunday School prizegivings would normally held around this time, and cannot be run.
  • End of years Family Fraternals (Bible Schools), which is held in Dec. and alternated with the youth conference will be challenging.
