Note that the Oct 2020 PAMI Bulletin features the new EBI modular extension class program. Teachers were working on curriculum during quarantine, and now it’s finally running and well attended. The next month’s schedule is as follows:
Number of students from particular places with modular studies.
Note that the last modular session for this October will be postponed due to bad weather related to another typhoon in PAR instead will be held to next month.
Since the existing modular classes is on six areas, six teachers and six subjects simultaneously, then the second semester will also be held on six areas likewise. The former schedule was again arranged.
For second semester schedule:
Ptr. Marlon –Bible Study Method
Sis. Espie-Pauline Epistles

Thank you for sincere and earnest prayers and supports for all PAMI families. A blessed and happy New Year to you! Sister Ofel Mendizabal, Director Emmaus Bible Institute
Fondly remembering my Aunt Izzy Allen, who passed away last Saturday at 95 years old (almost 96). Besides being a close aunt, she was part of the board of Philippine-Asian Missions, Inc. (PAMI) since its first year back in 1983, was the secretary for many years, and attended board meetings up until just a couple years ago. Some of these pictures are from the PAMI board Christmas parties at her house or our house. Aunt Izzy and Aunt Ardelle were usually the instigators of fun games at these Christmas parties. Coincidentally, Aunt Izzy passed away at the same age and about the same time of year as Aunt Ardelle, who was a year older and passed away last year. They were always close friends, since being little girls, and are now together again, along with their husbands and other loved ones, and with their Lord Jesus. Read More
Please pray for Sis Rebecca Huab, the wife of PAMI Pastor Jess Huab of Patag Church, near Irosin. Her condition is currently very critical. She is having difficultly breathing, in a lot of pain, is very weak, and not eating much. Her blood pressure was very low, so they gave a blood transfusion. She needs dialysis, but has been too weak to have it. She also has bad sores on her foot and leg. All of this is probably a complication of her diabetes. As of July 5th, as a last ditch effort to save her life, Sis Rebecca is being transferred from a Sorsogon hospital to a Legazpi hospital which has a kidney doctor and the ability to do dialysis. So far PAMI has given them $100 for out-of-pocket expenses in Sorsogon and $200 for out-of-pocket expenses in Legazpi to help cover what their PhilHealth doesn’t cover. Perhaps some PAMI supporters might like to help chip in towards these extra expenses. I’m sad to report that Sis Rebecca passed away on July 6th. The last $200 will be used for funeral help instead of medical help. After a week of visitation, the burial will be Friday, July 12.
Other PAMI people have had medical issues too. Ptr Virgilio Fulo was dizzy and weak and is taking medications for his gall bladder and heart. One EBI student burned their hands and another is having stomach ache. Ptr Redgie’s little daughter Asian Pearl hit her head on the cement floor, and Ptr Winston’s little daughter had UTI and Amoebias and son missed the first week of school due to fever and swollen legs. Pray for God’s healing and protection.
