Join us on January 28, 2017 (Saturday) at the WAY OF THE MASTER Conference, headlined by Emeal ("E.Z.") Zwayne and Mark Spence of Living Waters USA (www.LivingWaters.com). The venue will be at The Elements at Eton Centris, EDSA cor. Quezon Ave.
Living Waters Asia is a partner with needGod.ph in organizing this event. Both are in the front line in terms of biblical evangelism here in the Philippines.
Together, let us walk through the Bible and explore from Scriptures what biblical evangelism is.

People say that "time flies when you're enjoying". We, the members of the congregation of LWA Truth Center say, "time flies when you're learning"!
Last August 28, the congregation that God had allowed to come out of the ministry of Living Waters Asia celebrated their 2nd anniversary with Colossians 2:7 ("Rooted and built up in him, and established in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.") as the theme. We are happy that the Colossians 2:7 goal we had when we started as a simple Bible study group is still the same goal we have now that we are a bigger group. When most of the churches burden themselves with the task of making congregants enjoy every service they conduct, to the point where things become unbiblical already, our group has focused on understanding God's Word more deeply.
The event was a time of worship and thanksgiving to the Lord. We looked back at what God had allowed us to do in our 2nd year of existence, then pleaded to God to allow us to do more in our 3rd year. We prayed that God would continue to equip us so that our lives would be lived for His glory.
Pastor Tom Limas, an associate pastor of a local church in the province and a missionary pastor at San Miguel, Bulacan, was the guest preacher for the celebration. He expounded on the theme of the event and challenged the members to continue on with our goal of Christian growth that we can only achieve by diligently studying the Word of God.
Year 2 is over. We now start year 3. Another year, but still, the same goal.
Living Waters Asia is very much involved in reaching the youth for Christ. Actually, before we were LWA, we were a youth evangelism ministry. Obviously, after 10 years, we can't call our staff "members of a youth ministry" anymore, as we are all starting to exhibit things in our appearances that disqualify the use of the word "young" when describing us. But we still take time to share the Gospel to young people.
This was exactly what we did last Aug. 17-19. Notre Christi Academy of the Philippines again tapped LWA to conduct a retreat for their 70+ Grade 10 students. The venue was again at Falcon Crest Resort at Norzagaray, Bulacan. The event had everything that you expect from a youth retreat like indoor and outdoor games, singing, cheering, etc.
The theme of the retreat was simple... "Choices". Members of the LWA team took turns discussing to the students the choices they are presented around them, and the consequences of each choice. But we made them understand that the most important choice every person must make is between sin and God. We made them realize that the notion that because they're still young, they really should not think of their choice yet between the two is so wrong as death could come any time. Choosing to surrender to God, we emphasized, has with it the promise of forgiveness of sin and eternal life in Heaven. Choosing to continue embracing sin is dangerous as its end will be eternal suffering in Hell.
Please pray for the students. We saw during the retreat that there were several who intently listened to the talks we delivered. May the Holy Spirit continue to remind them of what we shared to them and convict them of their need of a Savior.
