Although Casiguran and Allen are in two different Provinces and two different islands, the two share a couple connections. Evidently the FM radio signal from Ptr Randy’s programs broadcasted from Allen, Samar are able to travel over 30 miles and be heard by people in Casiguran, Sorsogon. In turn, there were listeners from Casiguran that sent text messages to Ptr Randy, and Ptr Randy then introduced them to Ptr Rafael.
Furthermore, both Casiguran and Allen employ creative means to reach out to people. As you can see in the following reports, Sis Elsie has used massage of babies and mothers to start Bible studies in Casiguran. And Ptr Randy has convinced a radio listener to offer free haircuts to reach kids at the local school. I am reminded of 1Cor 9:22 where Paul says, “I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some.”
CASIGURAN PAMI MINISTRY. Our Bible study in San Juan (one that was endorsed by Ptr Randy as radio listeners) is increasing in number, from this family to 5 more adults. Though the site is far from our house, yet the response of people is very encouraging. Bible club in our house is growing too, most attended by youth and children and some adults. My wife Elsie was able to start Bible study with some women as a result of massage. We call this “hilot.” Our house is near TESDA (Technical Education and Skills Development Authority) school and Elsie was able to enroll and finish the 6month training (every Saturday only). This is mostly for baby massage. Baby that has fever. But massage for adults is included in the training, provided that you’ll do it with same gender. Anyway, having this skill is an added extension of labor of love especially for mother and baby. Which in turn provides an opportunity for opening Bible studies.
Please continue to pray for us and the Lord’s work. That God would provide us more avenue of service to reach out many more people for Christ.
Partners in God’s mission,
