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.
