Greetings to all my faithful ministry supporters. We are asking prayers and financial help to raise funds of $1,000 just to build a simple, permanent meeting place in our outreach area because the children and young people have been meeting under the bamboo tree and it is a danger to them, and the adults meet under a temporary tent and some part of the tent has been destroyed already. This outreach already has 16 newly baptized members and has an average of 30 to 40 adults, 30 young people, and 25 children attending regularly every Sunday afternoon. This is our weekly Sunday schedule: we hold church service in the morning in the main church, eat lunch together within 30 minutes, then we leave the main church at exactly 12 o’clock in the afternoon and arrive in the outreach area at around 1:30 p.m., more or less, traveling for at least 1 hour and 30 minutes if there is traffic. Since no pastor has been assigned to lead this group, I’m the one who preaches to the adults. After services in the outreach, we travel again to the main church for my meeting schedule with the men of the church. Though we are tired after the day’s activity, it is quite amazing and enjoyable because it is all for God’s glory alone. Your monthly support will go to our outreach because we provided the adults 2 kilos of rice, 5 kilos of noodles and 5 eggs and snacks including young people and children. The monthly support of $200 is not enough for the Sunday ministries because the gasoline costs are not included. Please pray with me that my monthly support will increase because we are paying $150 rent on the land for 500 sq. meters for the outreach having the lease for 10 years. This is usually the problem and struggle of every pastor.   Prayer Requests:
  1. Monthly rental $400 until September 2022
  2. New contract for land leased for the main church after September 2022. Monthly rental expenses and terms of the new contract
  3. Monthly rental $150 in the outreach
  4. School ministry enrollees for 2022-2023
  5. Completion of requirements for face-to-face classes
  6. Lot owners of the main church and outreach lands to get saved
  7. To visit the US to present my ministry needs
  8. My son’s school tuition – $700 per semester
