Letter From the Philippines

Dear Partners of WHOM and SLWM,

  Just yesterday Sarah and I received this email from a pastors wife (AOG church) in Cebu, Philippnes.  It so much blessed Sarah and I that we wanted to share it with you.  So often we wonder, after expending so much energy and finances, if we really make a difference.  It is comments like this that has kept us going to the nations for these past 30 years.  And you, our Partners, too, can rejoice with us because of your uniting with us in prayer and support.  Give all glory to our Father who is Heaven and to His Son Jesus Christ who has given us the ability through the power of the Holy Spirit to accomplish His work here on earth until the day of His coming back.
  Please read carefully Sister Mercy's email and be be blessed:

Our Everdearest Bro. Wayne and Sis. Sarah,

We declare blessing, upon blessing, upon blessing to be upon you  as you faithfully obey God's calling for the nations! 

On behalf of our family, we would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts.  As we reflect this whole year, you first came to our remembrance. We believe it was a God-ordained schedule that you stayed long with us that time-early at the start of the year.

When Sis Sarah shared her vision to our Intercessors: "that the Holy Spirit is like brooding over the Philippine Islands"...Indeed something great awakening, renewal and revival were happening throughout the country, throughout the year, in spite of the deadly earthquake and super-typhoon. 

While sharing with that... in the national scenario... we would like to share to you also our personal and family journey...and then it flows to the local Church where God entrusted us to under-shepherd.

Indeed, your stay in our home was appointed by God. It was not only timely because Ptr. Edgar that time was always out of town for other ministry trips and engagements", so Pastor Wayne has become (by God's appointment) our "Papa at home and for our church/community various activities" *:) happy ..."

But most of all, my personal revelation from God was that, not only the Holy Spirit is brooding over the Philippine Islands, but "the Holy Spirit was brooding over our home and family through you." Halleluiah! 

As we reflect back how God is working in our family this year, indeed we also experience breakthrough upon breakthrough. Jeremiah, our eldest son, that we always asked from you for prayer before, and was in the rehabilitation center (Philippine Teen Challenge) during the time you were here, was home already since March. Now he is working as a youth development worker in our Compassion Project, handling 15-18 years old youth in our Church Center.  His calling from God in Jer. 1:5 while he was still 3months in my womb, is still loud and clear...though, we can still observe, he is resisting the Holy Spirit move in his life nowadays...

Mizpah Joy, our 2nd child and only daughter, is doing good and growing in the Lord's ministry through her involvement in the Global Relief Team of World Vision for Haiyan Response and based in Tacloban City. We're happy she's home with us this Christmas Season.  

And many more His-Stories of victories... to share with you when you come next year.

For the moment, please pray for our remaining activities in the church and family. We have just finished Mass Wedding as our Church Gift to sanctify live-in couples in our Child Survival Program...  Right now, as of writing, Pastor Edgar is having Teambuilding/Bonding time with our Sunday School Teachers, Royal Rangers Patrol Leaders, Praise and Worship Team and Life Group Leaders. I just remain in church replying your email (no more time after this)...hehehehe...and I'm preparing for our trip to Alcantara town (3 hour drive to South Cebu) this afternoon to officiate a Re-affirmation of Wedding Vows Ceremony, tomorrow.

Please pray also as we launch Project Andrew in the Church on Sunday(Dec.28) in preparation for Billy Graham Crusade in March 2015. And I'll be preaching also in Phil Teen Challenge (Cebu City) this Sunday Worship. I need wisdom, guidance, compassion and anointing from God to minister these street children, orphans and transformed addicts, etc. on this last Sunday of the year.

On December 30-Jan 2, as a family we'll travel Cebu North, Tuburan town. As a family (Pastor to handle the husbands/fathers,  me-to handle the wives/mothers, Jeremiah-for their youths and Mizpah Joy for their children), we are invited to speak on Church Family Camp of Tuburan AG. This is the first time (with our grown-up children) to minister together. Helleluiah! May the Lord find us ready for this. Please pray for unity of spirit, mind and faith. May we be a blessing to the families over there.

Thank you very much for journeying with us in prayer. This is all for the glory of God. Apart from HIM we are nothing. We need HIS extra strength, good health, protection and provision in all these travels, wisdom, guidance, revelation and anointing from ABOVE.

God bless you more and more...

In Christ alone we put our trust,

Sis Mercy (on behalf of the family)

As I have been reflecting on recent events in America, indeed, the past several years, this very night in the shower many thoughts and questions began to enter my mind.  I will make an attempt to translate, that which is in my spirit, to “ink and paper.”

The Scripture that Holy Spirit gave me came from the mouth of a young man who later would be referred to as “a man after mine own heart.”  That youth is David, later to become King of all Israel. As a young man at the time – not even a warrior; hence, not a member of Saul’s Army.
When he came to the front lines of the battle he observed two forces: The forces of good, (God’s Children), and the forces of evil (the Philistines).  What he saw was quite disturbing to this shepherd boy of about 15 years of age.  He saw one lone Philistine standing in the valley below challenging the whole of God’s army on the hills above.  What young David saw turned his stomach for he saw the army of God cowering down, speechless, and hiding behind rocks…
From their mouth, and action came only silence – other than the chattering of teeth.

Finally, seeing all that he could stand, yelled out, “IS THERE NOT A CAUSE?” (1 Sa 17:29)

These words rang across the bloody battlefield below as the evil taunted, the righteous trembled.  David thought this ought not to be.  Having learned the art of worship, prayer, spiritual and natural warfare, during the time of caring for his fathers sheep, he was well prepared for the final episode of this historic battle – God’s best verses the enemies best.

Now, I ask you…”How did this turn out for the enemies of God?”  For the enemy to triumph, all it takes are ill-prepared men and women to say nothing and do nothing.  How did this work out for 1930’s Germany? 

Not often have I backed down from what some would refer to as to “controversial.”  It was once said, “All it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing” (at least that is a close paraphrase).  What I have observed in the church, including leaders, is that many are not taking a vocal stand on the moral issues, of the which, many clearly violate our Constitution and the a Christians moral Code book, The Holy Bible.

The “Goliath” of abortion, the “Goliath of the so called gay rights issue…..both of which violates God’s moral conduct for mankind.  It’s not people God hates, or we hate, (indeed, He and we both love ALL people), but rather He hates the SIN that people commit.  For whatever reason, far too many “Christians” are taking a back seat to these issues.  Everyday, the enemies of the Cross are gaining momentum.  Where are the David’s? I have noticed many “big time” preachers having become “seeker friendly” rather than “righteous friendly….”  Big crowds rather than crying out from the “housetops” of the evil and injustice that is happening all across America…indeed the world.  I’ve had people on my Facebook come against me for speaking out thinking it might offend some who may not agree.  I have no problem with people who disagree with me.  All I ask is for a Bible reference to back up any claim they might have.

The Spirit of the Living God is once again crying out to the Church:  “Is there not a cause?”
As in Joel’s day, so it is in our day.  There is an enemy knocking at the door…the sounding of the prophetic shofar has and is sounding the alarm of the impending danger lurking at the very door door steps of freedom in America.  As God spoke to the Commanding General, Joshua, so He is speaking to us today, “Be strong, and courageous worship, meditate day and night on My word, and you will be successful.” 

To us, as He said to His people of yesteryear, “Put off your slumber.”  He also said, AWAKE, OH ISRAEL.  Sleepiness by the Church will surly result in the same outcome of His people who proceeded us (2 Kings 25).  The reason for the fall and captivity of Judah was poor leadership of the nation and the people serving other god’s; (today those god’s could be, if allowed, money, sports, TV, movies, hunting, fishing, and a host of other things that occupy our time and our minds….taking away the most important PART where the true worshipers of the Father of Lights, will worship Him in Spirit and in Truth).

Only by pursuing the Lord of heaven and earth as David did, will we prevail like David did!
