2021 Summary and January 2022 Bulletin

Here’s a summary of 2021 PAMI highlights that was included in donor year-end statements:

Dear Friends:

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:

2020 Summary & January Bulletin

For 2020 donors that received a year-end gift receipt, the following 2020 ministry summary and January Bulletin were included. They are included in this blog post for others to see as well.

Dear Friends:

Thank you for demonstrating your love for the Lord through your gifts and prayers for PAMI in 2020.  I am reminded of Jesus' example of service by washing the disciples' feet at the Last Supper, followed by issuing the mandate of John 13:34, "As I have loved you, so you must love one another."

Despite the restrictions posed by COVID for most of last year, there was still much accomplished. When large groups were forbidden, messages were streamed on-line and via radio, and small groups in homes or yards still met.  34 people were baptized, and about another 20 are waiting to be baptized once beach venues open up.  4 EBI seniors completed their four year program in March, and 10 Freshmen began their studies in August.  Weekly modular EBI extension classes were started in September in 6 locations with 40+ attendees.  160 Compassion sponsored kids were served, shifting from weekly sessions at the EBI campus to home-based visits by case workers/teachers.  Children’s feedings were converted to relief food distributions.  Several balikbayan boxes were sent with books, CDs, games, toys, school and office supplies, hygiene supplies, clothes, laptops and projectors.  Some typhoon repairs and building refurbishment/improvement were done, including replacing an EBI bamboo classroom with a brick one, and reroofing the EBI church, Candumaay Matnog church, and Mabini pavilion.  A lot in Tabon-tabon Irosin was purchased through a combination of local and matching mission funds.  It’s through the partnership of dedicated Filipino workers and faithful supporters like you that all this was possible.

Thank you very much for your part in this work.  May God richly bless you.
