The Director of the Ballymena based Reaching and Teaching Ministries organisation (R.T.M.), has reported back on what he describes as one of his ‘best ever’ mission trips to the Philippines.
During a month-long visit to the southeast Asian republic, Kenneth Wilson and colleagues Philip Johnston, also from Ballymena, and Americans Nick and Debbie, spoke in churches, schools, Bible colleges, at Pastor’s conferences and even a holding centre for prisoners’ on remand.
They testified and shared the Gospel with thousands of people throughout the Philippines Islands and saw many accept Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord.
Each day brought new opportunities to the team whether they were speaking in a small church, at a missionary breakfast or encouraging thirsty students at the Living Rock Ministries Bible College.
An all-day Pastor’s Conference in the city of Kanbankalon presented Kenneth and his team with a new long-term challenge. Hungry Pastors desiring Good Bible teaching and needing Good Gospel literature.
He explains: “Many of those pastors are the only person in the congregation with a Bible so there is a great need for Bibles.
“Since I came home I have committed myself to try and raise £1000 for 200 Bibles in the local dialect.”
Kenneth added: “We appreciate all those who prayed for us every day during this mission month, it was very obvious to us that people were praying back home.
