What do you do when you're given lots of food, more than you and your family can handle? Of course, share them. But what do you do when you're given food, more than you and your family can handle, and you're a Christian? If that's the case, use it to get people to listen to you preach the Gospel.
That's exactly what Living Waters Asia did last month. With free canned goods from the makers of Argentina Corned Beef and Century Tuna through the efforts of Mrs. Lumen Aglosolos, LWA utilized what it had to encourage people to hear the Gospel message. Feeding programs were done by LWA with partnerships with Children For Christ Ministries (CFCM) and Mustard Seed Christian Baptist Church (MSCBC). First, LWA shared the goods to the residents of the provincial juvenile jail of Bulacan via a Christmas party (see related story). Another Christmas party was held by LWA at its Student Center, Dec. 20, where the frequent visitors of the center were the ones that enjoyed the food LWA prepared.
Last Dec. 7, LWA partnered with its evangelism arm for children, CFCM, for a feeding program at Catacte Elem. School where more than a hundred pupils were present (read related story). Last Dec. 29, it was MSCBC that LWA partnered with and the result was a time with families of Liciada, Bustos, Bulacan.
In all of these events, the Gospel was delivered before food was given. LWA is looking forward for more events like these. We pray that we'll get more supplies of canned goods so we can continue to anchor events on feeding programs.
The year 2012 was indeed a fruitful year for CFCM.The Lord opened the doors of conducting parenting seminars in the whole of Bustos,Bulacan which has twelve public elementary schools and three national high schools, This is in partnership with the provincial government headed by Gov. Willy Alvarado and with Society Bible Baptist Church with Ptr. Darwin Antazo as senior pastor.. It is our hope that the seeds of salvation sown in their hearts will soon grow and yield conversions to Christianity.
The Lord also allowed us last December 13,2012 to hold a feeding program at Catacte Elementary School which has around 220 pupils. We thank our sponsors for their generosity and love.
The CFCM Christmas Program was held last December 7, 2012 with its theme: SERVING WITH POWER. This event paved the way for committee members and the volunteer teachers to have great fellowship and bonding. There were games, gifts and great food for everyone during the program. The highlight was the preaching of God’s Word by none other than our very own managing director, Bro Dennis Mark Aglosolos. We thank God for all those who helped us made this event possible.
As we face our 6th year of bringing precious children to Christ, we will continue to expect great things from God and attempt great things for God. We thank God for all those who keep on upholding us through their prayers, financial support or through their active involvement in voluntary teaching. We hope and pray that you'll continue your partnership with CFCM. We give all the glory to God!
