When summer in the Philippines kicks in, for Living Waters Asia that means summer evangelism opportunities!
We at LWA will always grab the opportunity to share the Gospel when most people are having breaks, either at work or at school. Like for kids, April and May in the Philippines are vacation time from school work. That's why we teamed up again with people from Banner of Truth Independent Baptist Church in conducting a vacation Bible school. We have been doing this for several years already in different sites in the province of Bulacan.
For this year's VBS, we did it at Barangay Bagong Nayon in Baliwag, Bulacan from April 22-26. We shared the Gospel to kids for the first four days then had their parents and older siblings listen to the Good News as well during the graduation program on the last day.
And just like in the past years, we made our presence felt during the Labor Day celebrations for this year. We drove all the way to Clark, Pampanga for this evangelism outreach. Armed with Gospel tracts, we delivered the Good News to people around the area, in jeepneys, business establishments, and even with people joining campaigns to help different politicians for the upcoming national and local elections this month. We also conversed about everyone's need for a Savior to people in a nearby park and public transportation terminal. We made sure to make people understand that no amount of labor on man's part can earn for him forgiveness of sin and eternal life in Heaven. Only the work of Christ at Calvary can provide man salvation.
We hope that other Christians and their churches will take advantage of the summer season here in the Philippines to heed the Great Commission. We still have a few weeks left. May God find all of us reaching people for Him.

The makers of a new pro-life movie called “7 Reasons” maintain that their film will change viewers’ votes on the subject of abortion–and actually demonstrate it. The 42-minute documentary shows those who are pro-abortion changing their minds in minutes, saying that they will now vote pro-life.
Award-winning filmmaker Ray Comfort says, “The movie really is a pro-choice politician’s nightmare. Like millions of others, I was horrified to hear liberals abandon their usual arguments about it not being a baby in the womb, etc., and freely admit that they just want to kill human beings out of convenience. I wanted to produce a film that would change people’s minds about this horrific practice, and ‘7 Reasons’ does just that.”
Comfort plans to release the film on YouTube on Mother’s Day weekend, through the Living Waters YouTube channel which has over 70,000,000 views. You can download an early copy of the video through our online store along with early bird bonuses.

Duterte Million Peso Tract (Regular size, in English)
Gospel message presented Way of the Master style written in English. This money tract has President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines as its face. Size is similar to Philippine paper bill.
Note: 1 qty. is equivalent to 1 pack of 100 pieces of this tract.
In preparation for the release, he is asking those who care about abortion to take a moment to watch two brief trailers and vote on which one they think is more effective.
“It’s the trailer that makes or breaks any movie. In our case, it has to stir enough interest to cause people to watch it when it’s on YouTube. So opinions about what works and what doesn’t really matter to us. We will market the best trailer in significant ways with the aim of changing minds and changing laws so that human life is protected. We are just asking those who care about the issue to say, ‘This one’ in the comment section of the one they like.”

Something big will happen at Japan this year!
Living Waters Asia will be in Misawa, Japan this June to do evangelism activities and conduct a training on biblical evangelism for Christians there.
On June 23, the yearly American Day at the US airbase there will take place. This is a much awaited event for those in Japan as this is one of the very few times the base is opened to the public. About 100,000 to 120,000 people are expected to be there as the event features fairs, sports activities and concerts by American performers. We will be there together with Calvary Chapel Misawa (www.calvarychapelmisawa.com) church members to deliver the Gospel to the visitors who will grace the event.
We also have the great privilege to preach the Gospel to Filipinos living and working in the area. Our partner church has scheduled this for us and this will happen on the 30th of June.
But what we are most excited about is the training on biblical evangelism that we will be conducting there which we expect to be joined by believers from different churches around Japan. This training is in preparation for the evangelism that our brethren in Japan hopes to be doing during the Japan 2020 Summer Olympics. We praise the Lord for the initiative of Calvary Chapel Misawa in organizing this event.

Last February 9, we had a great time conducting a biblical evangelism seminar at Dasmarinas, Cavite. Hosting the event was Heavenly Peoples' Church. This church who has many college students as their members were the ones that organized this event where Living Waters Asia is the main facilitator, because they desire to equip themselves for youth evangelism. Attending the event were not only the members of the said church, but Christian leaders from other churches from the area as well.
The result was so encouraging. There were several attendees that commented that it was only in the seminar that they learned about the reality of false converts. And then there were those who gave a thumbs up for the principle of evangelism that was discussed which is "Law to the proud, grace to the humble". You could see that God kindled the fire for the Great Commission from those that graced the event by the many questions about evangelism that were asked. The evening after the event, we even received a message from one of those that attended asking how she could share the principle she learned to their pastor.
The host church is already looking at the possibility of inviting Living Waters Asia again in the middle of this year, this time, for a seminar on apologetics.
Living Waters Asia, together with partners, Banner of Truth Independent Baptist Church (BTIBC) and Notre Christi Academy of the Philippines (NCAP), yearly hold a Christmas outreach to poor communities. If you remember, last year, we went to an island community in the City of Malolos and brought food and medicine supplies, as well as installed a source for clean drinking water to residents of this area. Of course, we delivered the Gospel message there.
We did this outreach again today, and this time, the recipients were poor families of barangay Bagong Nayon of Baliwag, Bulacan. From the generosity of members of BTIBC and pupils and students of NCAP, LWA was able to pack boxes filled with canned goods, noodles, bread, coffee and sugar which they distributed to families chosen by the community leaders.
The leaders of this community (barangay), chose 100 families to be recipients of the gifts we prepared. And so, during the event, there were about 100 people who represented their respective families in attendance. LWA volunteers and BTIBC members were present to assist in this outreach.
Before we distributed the gifts, we spent time declaring the Gospel to everyone. The LWA director spoke about how the events surrounding Christ's birth showed that God is extending an invitation to everyone to receive forgiveness of sins and eternal life in Heaven from Him. But it was emphasized that this invitation will expire either by death or when the Savior returns, that's why it is of utmost importance that we grab the first ever opportunity God is giving us to get right with Him.
After that, we gave out the gifts to the recipients. But while several of us were busy distributing the gifts, others from the LWA team and BTIBC members went around the community to distribute Gospel tracts.
This outreach blessed our hearts tremendously as we experienced the hand of God all through out, from the preparations all the way to the actual event. We praise the Lord for this. We also would like to thank the community leader of Barangay Bagong Nayon, Capt. Angelito Dantes, together with his councilors and assistants for opening a door for us to share the love of Christ.
Please continue to pray for everyone who heard the Gospel through this outreach.
