“Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to men on whom His favor rests.” - Luke 2:14
Another year has passed! Christ is glorified! Each of us did our part to proclaim to the nations His glorious acts – His redeeming love. He is our hope of Glory with whom we forever celebrate - Jesus our Savior was born today !!!
GOD’S ANOINTING MADE THE DIFFERENCE.
Coordinating our weekend retreat for our group in Mallorca (Nov. 11-13), Elizet was in constant Migraine and back pain for three weeks. She already had her doctor’s appointment and then Rey prayed with her for that weekend’s activity, the Lord touched her and got her instant healing. Glory be to God for His unfailing promises, he indeed is our Jehova Rapha, Amen. We allowed the Holy Spirit to direct us in all our activities. It was indeed a blessed two-full day retreat. We started discipleship class in the morning, creative arts workshops in the afternoon and practices in the evening. As a result, 8 (eight) of them committed their lives to the Lord . And (3) three churches were ministered to that Sunday – Ig. Filipina, Ejercito de Salvacion, Ig de Manacor. The blessing of God’s anointing made the difference as church people were ministered to , they were grateful for our short visit. Please pray for the churches in this island of Mallorca. The enemy is working double time to destroy and divide these churches. Through the networking ministry of Art Company, the Lord could provide moral and spiritual support not only to the youths but the Church pastors, leaders and members. After ART Company performed , the church in Palma and the one in Manacor decided to go on a joint picnic the following weekend just to relax and have fun time together. Glory be to God!!!

EURONET PASTORS FELLOWSHIP
About 150 Filipino Pastors from all over Europe – such as Germany, Italy, England, Ireland, Holland, Demark, Spain and some from USA and Canada met for their 5th year of Europe networking fellowship. The objective is to pray and encouraged one another to do the work of evangelism church planting all over Europe. This is an interdenominational fellowship. Rey had a wonderful time fellowshipping and meeting and Filipino pastors all over Europe and invitations were extended to form ART Company in these places, as they too are envisioning international churches be planted and thru this key approach using performing arts, their communities could also be reached out. Two churches in England and one in the USA are preparing to join the MOVIDA summer campaign next year 2006.
SPANISH CHURCH ANNUAL CONVENTION
The open door to work in unity with different group of churches is getting wider. During this convention Rey met a lot of independent church evangelical leaders and pastors joining together in fellowship. The atmosphere of being just ONE BIG family inspire us to keep working together in reaching the goal of evangelizing Spain for Christ. The focus is clear and the vision is possible … in unity and by God’s power we will continue the task of evangelism alongside these churches. Amen!!!
We have been blessed by the visit of our dear Pastor Ferrez from the Philippines. Praise God for our time together.
Please pray with us for the following projects –
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL YOUR PRAYERS AND SUPPORT TO US. MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!
WE LOVE YOU ALL.
