Pastor Marlon and Bulabog Church
This post has info about the ministry of Pastor Marlon Gabion of PAMI’s Bulabog Church near Emmaus Bible Institute. You can see that he is quite active, is good at reporting and providing pictures, and would be an interesting pastor for someone to sponsor. Pastor Marlon is 36 years old, graduated from EBI in 2013, pastored the Bulabog Church since his cousin (Pastor Nanding Gabion) passed away about 9 years ago, teaches EBI classes (both regular and modular extension classes), serves as a Compassion Padaba teacher, and coaches the Emmaus Christian Fellowship community basketball team. Besides heading the Bulabog Church, he also teams together with Pastor Benjie and Elah Camar, and various EBI workers and Compassion staff. The following pdf file has highlights of Pastor Marlon’s ministries from January to July of 2022. Along with a lot of other things, it includes more pictures from the PAMI youth Cluster Camp that was highlighted in the previous post.
More recent info from Pastor Marlon includes the following:
Dec. 12, 2022: Hello Brother Mike! How are you? How’s your preparation for this upcoming Christmas? Yesterday Bulabog church celebrated its 9 year anniversary since I started in 2013 there. I’m very thankful to God for always guiding me in that ministry, specially how to handle situations when they arise inside the church. I’m grateful in every season in our ministry–every year passing by is a different experience. I’m always excited for every additional year added by God because I’m praying and hoping that every season there are new souls added in the church.This year we only have a simple preparation and celebration due to bad weather of a typhoon. I’m only asking to the members to just bring food. We combine also a simple Christmas party celebration.Thank you very much for our budget that you are giving for our Christmas party.
Scroll through the following pictures from the Dec 11th celebration:
This is modular in Bulan last November. The subject that I taught was the book of Acts
I’m very thankful to God for safe travel last month every time we go there to teach in modular with pastor Raf, because last month always a heavy rain.
Here in Emmaus with sister nova and sister cristy (modular class)
Also here in Emmaus next week is an end of first semester classes. I’m thankful to God to finish the first semester in my teaching class, but I’m staying here because December 25 maybe we have a child dedication. I cancelled my plan to spend a Christmas holiday with my family because I have some activities this coming December 25–maybe we have a child dedication in our church.
On behalf of Bulabog family, thank you very much brother Mike and Pami board and supporters for always giving support of our ministry–in prayers, financial and guidance. May the Lord bless you in return for all the effort you’ve done. Once again thank you very much, and Merry Christmas in advance to your family. God bless.
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:
Camar ministry in Prieto Diaz & Bulabog (Padaba, feedings, Bible studies & 5-day kids club)
Pastor Benjie and Elah Camar live near EBI and the PAMI Bulabog Church (part of the municipality of Sorsogon City), and are involved in ministry in these places in addition to starting outreaches a few miles away in the neighboring municipality of Prieto Diaz that they plan to eventually turn into a church plant. Sister Elah is especially active as a Compassion case worker/teacher. Click here to see a pdf report with a lot of pictures of their ministry activities and family situation.
The most recent activity of Pastor Benjie and Elah Camar has been to do a 5-day kids club in Prieto Diaz, which was sort of a Daily Vacation Bible School right before the school year started:
Soon to follow after this will be the distribution of Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes from Samaritan’s Purse, along with follow-up discipleship. You can see in the background of some of these pictures that the boxes are already on site, but they are awaiting the teaching materials to arrive from Samaritan’s Purse before dispersing.
Reports from Ptr Vir & a lot of baptisms
Here are a couple reports from Ptr Vir Fulo, regarding the Bulan Church and Overall Mission.
Click on Mass Baptism in Bulan and Modular Studies
Click on Compilation Report- Jan. to March 2021
Since things are opening up a bit, there seems to be an influx of baptisms (catching up from things being more restricted before). In the above reports, there are pictures from a Bulan baptism of 24 in Otavi on March 20, a MonteCal baptism of 9 at Jamorawon River on March 5, and a Castilla baptism of 7 on March 4. Plus there was an Irosin baptism of 3 on Feb 6 (see below pics).
And there was a Candumaay Matnog baptism of two young people on Dec 27 (see below pics).
