* Philippines' Reformed Bookshelf

Synod 2010 of the Protestant Reformed Churches in America approved the proposal of a bookstore of RFPA (Reformed Free Publishing Association) books for the Philippines.  Part of the proposal was to have the PRCA congregations take collections to subsidize the books, so that they could be sold at reduced prices to the churches and contacts here in the Philippines.  Because of the generosity of the PRCA, we are now able to make this good Reformed literature available to God's people here.

The arrival of the first shipment of books

Nick and Deb willingly carried several extra cases full of books, when they came to visit, so that we wouldn't have any shipping costs.  Thanks Nick and Deb!

We soon got the books unpacked and ready for sales.

Nick and Deb also brought with them some used books from an individual in one of the congregations (see the bottom shelf above).  This proved to be a good avenue for these used books - most of them have sold already!

In the first week of sales, we sold about 45 books!  The people here are thrilled to have these books available at prices they can afford.

The shelf after the initial sales - considerably emptier
