Just like in previous years, Living Waters Asia took the opportunity to deliver the Gospel message during the celebration of Labor Day of this year. A team of volunteers of almost 20 people made their way to Clark, Pampanga, where the United States military once had an airbase for several decades.
Clark is a very interesting city in the Philippines. Because American servicemen abounded this area in Central Luzon for a long time, many have married or had children with Filipinos here. And so, there are a lot of "Fil-Ams" that call Clark their home and you can still obviously see American influence in the area. And despite the U.S. military base here already closed for about three decades already, many former U.S. servicemen have stayed or come back here for their retirement years. And so, the bars in Clark that promote promiscuity and casinos that encourages people to gamble are still alive and well. You can say that Clark has become a small version of a "sin city" in the Philippines.
This is the reason why LWA chose to do evangelism here for Labor Day 2018. The volunteers were grouped into small teams and got their own area to saturate with Gospel tracts and to engage people in conversations with whenever that opportunity presented themselves. We were able to converse with a group of jeepney drivers waiting for their turn to drive passengers to their destinations. Another volunteer had a conversation with someone who wanted to understand the power of God to keep His child from straying away from His hand. People going to places, policemen keeping order in the area, men and women doing business, and people with nothing to do in a nearby park received Gospel tracts from the LWA team.
It was tough doing evangelism under the heat of the summer sun. But it was all worth it. King Solomon said in Ecclesiastes that labor under the sun are worthless as it is just one of many tiring cycles in life. But the apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 15:58 comforts us that the labor we do for the Lord is not in vain. The evangelism we did here is one that will have eternal significance as it was done for the Lord.
Please pray for the people that received the Gospel in our Labor Day evangelism at Clark.
