Dear Prayer Partners and Co-Laborers in Christ,
God bless you for you investing through prayer & giving in souls and for future generations (children & youth) in the Philippines. Praise the Lord. Below is a quick update on a couple of our ministry projects (adding a Sunday School rooms).
However, our next full monthly prayer letter is coming in a few days.
We have more projects after these like, better water supply (sometimes we have no water at the church & for the workers, dorm men and some families), upgrade electrical wiring, etc., (sometimes we have outages due to wiring), bathroom facilities, etc. Thank you for your prayer and considerations.
Projects to Pray for: Hillside Bible Baptist Church currently has no classrooms -aside from our ACE school room. So, we have begun the process of expanding our facilities as the Lord provides for classrooms (multipurpose).
Current projects include 2 multipurpose rooms –
1. The “Power Church” room focusing on the growing Children’s Ministry – to provide a room for Children’s church. And during the week for Seminary classes (this August Hillside Bible Baptist Church is starting our own local church Seminary). We are praying for 10 Bible students for the 2023/2024 school year. This new room will also be used for nursery, meetings, library, music training, Bible studies/classes and more. Please prayerfully consider our need for the electrical & lighting.
2. The “Bible Barn” (Bible & gospel tract distribution & multipurpose room). As the KJV Beams Bible distributor here in the Philippines, we are building the needed facilities to distribute Free KJV Beams Bibles to all the Philippines. Hillside Bible Baptist Church, where JB is pastoring, has lend us a land we can use, and we are praying for the building materials needed to complete the 12’x16’ “Bible Barn”. Additionally, to be multipurpose for Sunday School & Seminary classroom, discipleship, church meetings & more. It is a wonderful privilege, and responsibility to send KJV Beams Bibles throughout the Philippine Islands of Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao, Cebu, and more…a great challenge and blessing. Thank you for your prayers and consideration.
We are praying for your understanding as usually we are very timely in sending our prayer letters monthly ~ so we thank you for your patience for recent slower updates and with our Prayer Letter this few months.
Special NOTE *What an amazing blessing The Ministry Van is to many Filipinos here which we fetch, reach with the gospel, feed & encourage, many souls have made profession of faith due to being able to bring them and go to them with the gospel.
Thank you so much from your generous support and faithful prayers and love for us as well since the beginning. The Lord is indeed at work here as we see souls saved, lives changed, and churches planted. God bless you more!
Your Missionaries to the Philippines,
J.B. & Marie Tarwater
