Having just returned from a 15-day trip to Peru, it is my thrill to report that we have our official paperwork to the establishment of our Religious Association in the country of Peru. This is a monumental step that needed to be accomplished before we could establish the International Baptist Church of Lima. It is a process that usually takes several months to finish; however, with God’s “mountain moving” power, we were able to go from start to finish in just 15 days! Glory to God! Continue reading →
The Lord surely has been good to us! The pressure never lets up in the ministry, but neither do the blessings. The past month has been an increasingly exciting time as we watch numerous of our church members, especially young converts, growing and maturing spiritually. Souls continue to be saved, and every Sunday new believers are being baptized; we had 10 baptized this past Sunday.
What a full year we’ve had in Dumaguete. January 15, 2012, was the one-year anniversary of International Baptist Church. We are so encouraged by all that God has done “with us” this past year and already see God working as we’ve entered 2012. A foundation was laid in 2011 upon which we are ready to build. Our soul winners are on fire and already are training their converts to win souls also.

I write to you from the plane on my way home from Ghana, West Africa. Three men and I journeyed to Kumasi to see our Ghana Team. The purpose of our trip was to observe the work that has been established there and get a visual example of what we hope to accomplish in Peru. What a trip! Packed full with activity, we preached in public schools, met with pastors, saw churches that were started, observed their college in session, and met with the team members. We spent ten days learning as much as possible. What a privilege it was to go there and see their work.
Bro. Ted Speer and his team are doing a phenomenal job. If I may share with you, we were able to go out personal soul winning and preach in a village and a school. We were able to preach to hundreds of children, with many of them raising their hands to receive Christ as Saviour. The Ghanaians are so hungry for the Truth. Continue reading →
An unusually timed storm hit an unlikely place this past weekend. Tropical storms and typhoons are no stranger to the Philippines, yet they are not welcome strangers. The portion of the Philippines in which we live is less prone to these storms, but someone forgot to tell this one. Most homes are not built to withstand harsh weather, and that proved true once again when Tropical Storm Sendong cut her path across the southern portion of the Philippines.

The eye of the storm went across the northern portion of our island to the south, Mindanao, but its reach affected even north of Dumaguete, here on the island of Negros, where we live.
