Cluster Camp photo summary
As stated in the December 2022 PAMI newsletter of the last post, one of the highlights of the year was the PAMI youth Cluster Camp held by the seashore in Candumaay, Sta Isabel, Matnog, with theme Time of Refreshing. Although a little late, I’ve been meaning to post this wonderful photo summary composed by Adonis, the brother of Sis Espie.
Additional photos of the cluster camp can be found in the pdf of the next post on Pastor Marlon and the Bulabog Church, as well as July postings of PAMI’s Facebook page:
2021 Summary and January 2022 Bulletin
Here’s a summary of 2021 PAMI highlights that was included in donor year-end statements:
Thank you for your gifts and prayers for PAMI in 2021. John 3:16 says "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son..." God is a giver, and he wants us to be like him. We give because God gave first. Our giving is a way of saying thank you for all that we've been given by God.
Despite the continuing challenge of COVID, much was accomplished this last year. 172 people were baptized (about twice a typical year)! The first graduation of the new Emmaus Bible Institute Modular extension program was conducted on December 20, with 21 students in 6 locations who completed 12 months of weekly classes. EBI also continues its regular 4-year program, with 16 on-campus students. Weekly on-line ukulele music lessons have been ongoing since April. 160 Compassion sponsored kids continue to be served with home-based visits by case workers/teachers. Food distributions were conducted, along with some in-person feedings. Several balikbayan boxes were sent with books, CDs, games, toys, school and office supplies, hygiene supplies, clothes, and laptops. New chapels were constructed in San Jose Bulusan and Juag Island Matnog. And we are soon ready to buy the property of the PenaFrancia Sorsogon and Candumaay Santa Isabel Matnog churches. It’s through the partnership of dedicated Filipino workers and faithful supporters like you that all this is possible.
Here’s the latest PAMI publication that was also included with donor year-end statements:
More baptisms and outreaches
There are more baptisms to report since the last post–4 at Juag Island Matnog by Pastor Gumer Gile on March 31 and 4 in Barcelona by Pastor Pio Garduque at the Common River on March 20. This makes 52 or 53 baptisms by PAMI pastors so far in 2021! And there are more on the way according to Ptr Vir Fulo and Sis Ofel Mendizabal (EBI youths yet in April, Candumaay Matnog may have another baptism by the end of April, Mabini by May, and Bulan again by June or July).
Below are pictures from the Juag Island visit and baptism on March 31 by Pastor Gumer Gile. Ptr Gumer said, “before our breakfast we have a morning devotion at the house of bro. Jose and four women coming and requesting a water Baptism so after our devotion and discussing water Baptism we baptized them. So praise God for goodness in the lives of these four Sisters in Christ. May the Lord God bless them continually.” The four baptized are relatives of the Adolfo that was mentioned in the following Facebook post: https://www.facebook.com/pamimission/posts/145541974102093
By the way, the guy in the green shirt that is assisting Ptr Gumer is Bro Jerom Banares. In addition to doing evangelism, Ptr Gumer recognizes that it’s good to be discipling new leaders and taking them along to outreaches like this.
Below are pictures of the Barcelona baptism on March 20, along with a shot of a worship service at the Buhang Barcelona Church and some shots from Pastor Pio Garduque’s home Bible studies in Cagang Barcelona and Luneta Barcelona.
