Praise God for new visitors.  Pray that they would be willing to be dealt with concerning salvation for some, and others are in need of serious discipleship.  What better place for these to take place than at church.  To continue reading the update from Bill Hardecker, please click the link below.

The Philppines is officially known as having the longest and strictest lockdown in the world.  Unfortunately, the COVID cases have spiked and continues to spike every day (upwards of about 9,000 new cases--mostly due to viral variants).  As a result, more lockdowns have been imposed including the prohibition of religious gatherings.   To continue reading the update from Bill Hardecker, please click the link below.

God is good and He certainly has blessed His Word.  The Bible studies continue weekly at Bro. Sefarino's house.  Rita's boys came a couple of times and heard the gospel.  On their third time there, they acknowledged their need to receive Jesus as Lord and Saviour.  Praise God!  To continue reading the update from Bill Hardecker, please click the link below.

Monsoons are large-scale sea breezes which occur when the temperature on land is significantly warmer or cooler than the temperature of the ocean.  The Summer Monsoon Season brings heavy rain and typically ends in October.  We had three weeks of heavy rain, but we certainly need it and are very thankful for it because this has already increased the Manila water reservoirs needed for coming months.  To continue reading the update from Bill Hardecker, please click on the link below.

What an exciting time to serve the Lord.  I think it is amazing considering how easy it was for nations to be locked down in the name of safety.  The enitre world was put on hold in no time.  Thermal scanners, government mandates, new norms, and the world-system carries on.  To continue reading the update from Bill Hardecker, please click on the link below.

We had just been granted a less restrictive community quarantine status on Agusut 1, only to be tightened for a couple of weeks from Agust 4-18.  The Metro Manila health care workers requested a halt because they are exhausted and the "Inter-Agency Task Force" along with the President honored their request and put the entire region back to the Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine.  Once again, there was no public transportation and gatherings were limited to 5.  To continue reading the update from Bill Hardecker, please click the link below.

2019 had been a fulfilling year for the ministry here.  It's a great blessing to see people getting saved and faithfully serving the Lord all throughout the year.  We held one last fellowship for our members and took this photo.  You may not be part of this photo as you were thousands of miles away when it was taken, but know that we consider you as part of our ministry.  Thank you and may our Lord bless you more.

Another opportunity to proclaim God's Word came as a result of one of the ladies in our church fellowship inviting me to preach to her fellow workers at the police office where she works.  I was able to meet and befriend her superior, Officer Ekid, and his staff.  Pray that I may lead them to Jesus.  To continue reading the update from Bill Hardecker, please click the link below.

We looked up what God's churches did during hard times in the book of Acts, and we found these three things: 1.  They made sure that there was not "any among them that lacked." 2.  They were in prayer, "but prayer was made without ceasing of the church."  3.  The word of the Lord was increased, "But the word of God grew and multiplied."

The most unusual Mother's Day ever.  Certainly the pandemic did not hinder our love and prayers for our mothers.  First, my mom has undergone dialysis and although at first she was physically weak, she is now doing well.  What is even more exciting is that she has been able to watch our Sunday live-stream and thus hear the gospel.  To continue reading the update from Bill Hardecker, please click the link below.

Praise the Lord for two love gifts that came from our sending church.  Their generous and sacrificial gifts were used to ensure that none of the families and individuals that regularly attend our services go without food during our "ECQ" (enhanced community quaratine.)
