Philippines Update Aug ’20

In these challenging times when ecclesias in many places are finding it difficult to meet together it is encouraging to see the gospel message is still going out. Last weekend the Kalilangan Ecclesia in the Philippines baptised four new sisters – Jean, Desiree, Jessa and Catherine.

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.

They have been using their time at home to spend time reading and sharing with others in the village.

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.
