* Negros Occidental Visit (2)

On Thursday, October 11, we spoke at a one-day conference in Canturay.  This was organized by the contacts we have in the area.  Canturay is located about 1/2 hour south of Inayauan, and is where Pastor Ariel Labrador lives.  The conference was held in the church building there.  Rev. Smit and I each spoke twice, on the following topics:
"Reformed Worship"
"Family Worship"
"Infant Baptism"
"God's Sovereignty Over Evils"
Welcome Sign

On Friday afternoon, we were also able to visit with some longtime contacts in Bacolod City - Rudy Corpus and Jay Nombre.  We have known these men since the 1990s, and visited with them on previous occasions.  It was good to renew this contact, and to hear of their continued and sincere interest in the Reformed faith and in the work we are doing and may be able to do, Lord willing, on the Island of Negros.

Visiting with Rudy Corpus and Jay Nombre in Bacolod City
We enjoyed and were greatly encouraged by our visit with these contacts in Inayauan and Bacolod.  We look forward to our continued work with them, and pray the Lord blesses and prospers the spread of His Word and truth in this part of the Philippines as well.
