Providence Primitive Baptist Church

On July 6-8, 2007 Providence Church enjoined a warm and harmonious annual meeting and during our meeting we ordained three deacons. We invited Elders; Manuel Briva and Conrado Quinto from Manila as our guest speakers. They both enjoyed excellent liberty. Many of our most recent members took communion for the first time and rejoiced their first feet washing service. With all our activities we also were excited about the completion of our two cottages for the children and the remodeling of the church building.

The three deacons ordained were Leonardo Puno a local contactor, Roger Duhaylungsod, a farmer who maintains our property and Allan Metillo an educator and teacher. They were questioned thoroughly regarding our doctrine and practice of the church. They all three answered excellently but I am thankful with brevity. The entire meeting was both uniting and encouraging for our congregation.

Nine New Members at Gilgal Primitive Baptist Church

In a recent article on our web site we reported on the ordination of Elder Vic de Guzman and the constitution of the church he serves in Manila called Gilgal Primitive Baptist Church. July 16, 2007 the church decided to honor their pastor with a time of fellowship and help him celebrate his birthday. At their fellowship nine regular attendees asked for baptism. Rather than put off the baptism they went to a local resort (swimming pool) and baptized them. The church almost doubled their membership. They now have 21 members. They are planning their annual meeting in September 2007 with their first feet washing service and Lord’s Supper. Their spirit of evangelism is both encouraging and contagious. They sent me a few pictures of baptism and their gathering on July 16, 2007.
