TRAINING CENTER BUILDING
With the help of our ministry partners like you, our Training Center building above is practically finished including landscaping. Only a few minor details such as cabinetry and additional furnishings such as beds and chairs are needed. With our Center finally completed, we can now focus on multiplying churches thru training church planters throughout the country and beyond by the grace of God!
It seems like God is allowing 222 Church Multiplication Network (CMN) to partner with like-minded ministries within the Philippines and around the world. Recently, I have been invited as one of the speakers in the Annual Church Multiplication Summit sponsored by the Philippine Council of Evangelical Churches (PCEC), an umbrella fellowship of all evangelical churches in the Philippines. PCEC has a vision to see 120,000 churches in the Philippines by 2020 and our network aims to contribute 200 new churches toward this vision. 222CMN has also partnered with other Christian ministries with a vision for church multiplication including:
Dynamic Church Planting International (DCPI): 5 million churches
Jonathan Project: 1 million churches
Alpha Ministries: 100 thousand churches
CALVARY CHAPEL TAGAYTAY CITY
We had our second youth camp at a beautiful resort with 27 teens from Tagaytay and Talisay. Every single one professed to receive Christ during the camp with 12 following Christ’s command to be baptized!
CALVARY CHAPEL TALISAY
Thanks to your prayers for a resident pastor for the church in Talisay, God has so powerfully answered in the person of pastor Dan Aguilan! Dan gave up everything dear to him in order to heed God’s call to become the pastor of the Calvary Chapel Talisay. He had to say goodbye to the church he had been pastoring and which his parents helped establish when he was still a young boy. He also had to say goodbye to all the pastors who have mentored him as well as to their fellowship of churches. Besides leading the church in Talisay, Dan will also assist me in the church in Tagaytay until God provides another pastor to help there. Dan has also been serving as the program director for all the trainings we conduct. Thanks be to God Who provides all our needs!
We are praying about moving CCT to highway so that more people would be able to come to our services. Please help us pray for this.
BABY SARAH GRACE
Thank you to all who prayed for the safe delivery of Sarah Grace; born February 8, 2019! Thank You Lord for every person You used in our rescue team to save baby Sarah from being aborted by her natural parents. May You help her to grow in the fear and knowledge of You and to serve You all the days of her life!
222 CHURCH PLANTING SCHOOL 2ND BATCH OF TRAINEES
To God alone be the praise and glory for the thirteen church planters enrolled for the second batch of training that started February 4 and ending last week of April, 2019! Please pray that each one of these trainees will be successful in planting healthy and reproducing churches.
BIBLE GIVING TO CHURCHES
Praise God for the 2000 old and new testament Bibles given to over 60 churches throughout our province of Batangas in partnership with Bible League! This coming Saturday, February 16, we will once again partner with Bible League Philippines in training over 100 children’s workers from several churches in our area on teaching children reading literacy using the Bible and Bible stories.
BIBLE GIVING TO FAMILIES IN OUR COMMUNITY
Praise God Calvary Chapel Talisay through the leadership of pastor Dan Aguilan was able to give out over 50 Bibles for free to the families in our community in the month of February! Please pray that God will use these Bibles in the homes of these families to know Him and to give our church in Talisay an open door in sharing the gospel to these families.
AUDIO BIBLE CHALLENGE
God used Tim Stahl to create a One-Year Audio Bible on an SD card so our people could listen to the whole Bible offline on their smart phones! A total of 26 from our two churches signed up for our Audio Bible Challenge to listen to both old and new testaments in 6 months! We grouped these people into several small groups with a leader for each group and in so doing birthed our Discipleship Home Group ministry!
