God is really good! Towards the end of 2011, Living Waters Asia, just like many other Christian ministries around the world, experienced significant financial difficulties. The financial support we were receiving for the ministry seem to indicate that we will not be able to do evangelistic programs that we normally hold. There were usual yearly programs that took a break for LWA like our summer evangelistic camp as a result of the crisis. All financial indications show that we will also have to cancel this year's mission trip (GOSPEL BUZZ '12). But we prayed and refused to let go of the chance to go to a far Philippine province to declare the biblical Gospel there.
God heard our prayers and saw our desire to glorify Him, and so, He came through. We found ourselves in the afternoon of Oct. 21 making our way to Quezon province. From Oct. 21 to 25, we made ourselves present in streets of four towns in Quezon--- Lucban, Tayabas, Luisiana and Lucena City. We distributed thousands of Gospel tracts and allowed hundreds of people to hear the biblical Gospel through one-to-ones and open-air preaching.
We really saw God move during the days we were there. There were people that expressed their appreciation for the work we did right after we saw them read tracts we gave them. We saw in people's eyes how intent they were in listening to us share the Gospel to them. God also, several times, brought people to us, with us, not needing anymore to find them. An example was when after we got out of a public transportation vehicle back from evangelism of another town, about seven to ten buses full of high school students parked right in front of us. The students were on a field trip. We hurriedly stepped in front of bus doors so we can give each of the students a copy of the Gospel.
We thank everyone that prayed and supported financially this mission trip. God really cares for souls as He did not allow that this opportunity to deliver the Gospel to a far away province be missed. We are looking forward to next year's Gospel Buzz and we hope that you also can't wait to again be a part of it.
