We've had an eventful year - with the continuation of our regular work (in the First Reformed Church of Bulacan, Christian Faith Ministry in Batasan Hills, All of Grace Protestant Reformed Fellowship in Gabaldon, visiting contacts in Inayauan in Negros Occidental, and occasionally preaching in the Berean Protestant Reformed Church), meeting new groups and individuals, beginning a new work (in a Reformed congregation in Valenzuela, Manila), and having many visitors from abroad. We are looking forward to another fruitful year in 2012 and are eagerly anticipating the arrival and help of Brother Vernon and Sister Melody Ibe and their son MJ in July of this year, Lord willing. We pray God will use them in the work here for His glory and for the salvation of His people in the Philippines.
A sincere thank-you to all for the greetings, cards and letters you have sent, as well as for the interest and support shown to and through the Smit family while they were on their furlough in North America this past June. All these things are an encouragement in the work - a concrete evidence to us that the work here is remembered and prayed for.
May God grant you all a Blessed New Year!
