Chairs for Carigara

Greetings, friends. I want to make you aware of an excellent opportunity to help a growing church plant in Carigara, Leyte, Philippines. In November 2013, Thyphoon Haiyan (Yolanda) hit the island-province of Leyte. February 2014, I had the privilege of serving communities in Leyte by documenting through media, the Filipino Evangelical response to the disaster. I worked under the banner of the Philippine Council of Evangelical Churches and the Philippine Relief and Development Services (both GLINTS ministry partners). The documentation, both pictures and videos, were used to acquire additional funding for disaster relief.

This assignment allowed me to meet some very special servants of God, one of which is Pastor Jimmy Libut. Pastor Jimmy continues to serve the people of Leyte, and he embarked on planting a church there with the help of the locals. They have a thriving children’s ministry and built temporary fellowship center .

Pastor Jimmy and his growing congregation need 100 chairs at ($15.00/chair) for the fellowship center. Currently, the church ministers to at least 40 children each week and baptisms number 16 since church planting in Carigara began. Your support will help this church plant get established in this town. I plan to make the trip to Leyte in the near future to purchase the chairs locally, encourage Pastor Jimmy and his church family, as well as document their joy and thankfulness via photos and video. Your financial partnership and prayer support for this trip would make it all the more special!

In a spirit of generosity, will you give? Thank you for your consideration. Here’s how you can send your gifts. I will personally carry the funds, God-willing, sometime in January.
