This past week Monday through Wednesday (May 20-22), Rev. Kleyn and Rev. Smit traveled to Southern Negros Occidental for their monthly classes (SNO) with the group of pastors there. However this month they stayed an extra day and delivered the same conference speeches on God's Sovereignty that they gave here in Manila last month. Although the SNO classes are held in Sipalay, the conference was held in a church in Hinoba-an, a town a few miles south of Sipalay. Pastor Jonathon Barroca, who attends SNO, is the pastor of that church.

Time for fellowship
The ladies and young people who helped with the food
Lunch time. The two silver bowls are fish (boiled) the two other dishes are lechon baboy or roasted pig. This is a famous Filipino dish, where the whole pig is roasted over an open fire. Rev. Kleyn said it was delicious.
The attendees were given a free copy of Rev. Smit's new book, "The Fruit of the Spirit of Jesus Christ."

Once again some literature was sold and God's word was spread to more contacts. Pray that God will use the work for His purposes.
