CFCM volunteers w/ teachers and school officials
CFCM held a 3-day Children’s Evangelistic Crusade(CEC) in San Luis, Pampanga last August 22-24 and we praise the Lord for opening the doors to 17 public elementary schools and 2 high schools with at least 8,000 pupils, students and teachers now available to be sown the seeds of salvation . This was in partnership with the Sambahang Kristiano ng Bahaypare and Mustard Seed Christian Baptist Church.
Our team had encountered some oppositions and distractions during our evangelism activities. One instance was when we met two young men who were trying to attract the elementary children by playing the guitar and chanting unfamiliar words in a nearby park at San Luis Central School during their lunch break. After a few minutes, more and more children and teenagers from Gonzales high school came to check out what the young men were chanting. We later learned that what they were saying were names of Hindu gods. They believe that the more they say these names, the more their souls will be cleansed.

One of our volunteer teachers, Bro. Buddy Valdez, approached them. They said they belong to the Hari Krishna religion. They claim to be followers of Christ, although they deny His Deity and the power of His blood to cleanse us from all our unrighteousness. Bro Buddy rebuked them and they fled. The Bible says” Rebuke the devil and he will flee from you”.
This has challenged our hearts the more to preach the gospel as we are being used to snatch the precious souls of the children from the paws of our enemy.
Our next CEC will be on September 19-21 at Cabiao, Nueva Ecija . Please pray for us as we try to saturate all the elementary and high schools in the area with the Gospel. There are around 17,000 pupils and students in these schools. A training at Grace Fundamental Baptist on September 17 will be held prior to the evangelism.
