Matthew 9:36

“But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.”

Ministry Updates:

We thank you for all your financial support as well as your prayers. Last two weeks we started a newly open extension class area one of the church members houses. Led by my son and other young people.

One of our church members lives near the creek. As pastor and church leader my duty is not only preaching ang teaching but most of all to know their way of living. This family is very faithful, going to church every Sunday.

Carmen Outreach updates

My older sister, niece and grandchildren were faithfully attending outreach living in the next town riding a tricycle rain or shine. The tricycle driver they hired I paid 10$ every Sunday afternoon and this driver was very eager listening God’s Word.

Updates during church service, last Sunday by God’s grace we had visitors.

Ministry Updates:

Last Sunday September 24,2023, we had mission Sunday academy parents and students from levels 1-3 joined us. The students presented 2 songs and verse; we had guest speaker from the main city. The speaker clearly spoke the message he delivered; we heard a lot of parents follow the sinner’s prayer. That Sunday was a great blessing for us, we celebrated the 24th wedding anniversary, the guest speaker and his wife gave us gifts. Thank you for your financial support.

 Saturday outreaches in two areas, headed by selected church young peoples one of these is my son Elbert Josiah Cruz. The snacks will serve after bible story, we served juice and crackers. These children are from the relocation area from our city. This is a new area.

Another area in front of the house of one of the church members, my son Elbert Josiah lead them in singing using ukelele instrument.

Galatians 6:2 Canduman Baptist Church ministry, we helped this pastor in their children’s ministry weekly. The financial help is the money received from my monthly supports from Bethel Baptist Church, Vestal New York and Charity Bible Church, Scottsville and certain lady named Cindy. What we did to this pastor is an attitude of being steward and servant.

Bible believing churches in the Philippines are facing great challenges every week in their children’s feeding program, some of them monthly rentals and food consumptions. Thank you, faithful supporters, for entrusting me with your finances.  Pictures below are from the churches that are in great need. From the support received from you, part of it will be shared to their ministry and sometimes help them buy food.

  1. Bible Baptist Church, Roxas Capiz – headed by Pastor John de Ocampo. We sent him 1500 pesos.

  1. Living Hope Baptist Mission, Gingoog City Misamis Oriental Mindoro -Pastor Manuel Bangot.


This church is in a critical area of Muslim rebels and not accessible by car, only with a motorcycle, and very rough road.  At 7 p.m. no one will go outdoors, and all doors must be closed. We send him 1000 pesos a month for a feeding program.


  1. Boulevard Bible Baptist Church, Bacolod City – Ferdinand Adelan Pastor.

Picture were taken during local mission trip July 18-20, 2023.  There were 25 professions of faith.


  1. One day Bible symposium held on July 18, 2023, at Bago City, Negros Occidental. This local mission leaves a great impact to the lives of most tribal pastors in a very remote area and a stronghold of Muslim rebels. Fighting between military and rebels most of the time paralyzes the worship schedule. Some of these pastors cross rivers and it is very dangerous for the believer to travel for worship. They were blessed with lessons on what is motivational church leader.


  1. VBS Recognition.


  1. Carmen Outreach. After morning preaching, we travel doing outreach.

Jesus Christ has the heart for missions.  God called me in the ministry to become servants and stewards not being popular. Blessings received monthly intended for God’s ministry.

Thank you, ministry partners.
