As many of you know, Seminarian Stephan Regnerus will be in the Philippines for two months of his summer break from seminary to help out on the mission field and to gain some knowledge of the work the Lord has given us here.
He arrived on Tuesday, May 26, 2015.
Meeting him at the airport. Already feeling the heat.
His workspace in our spare room all set up and ready to go.
Stephan has already had opportunity to try out various modes of Filipino transport.
On 2nd Floor, the hill in our neighborhood overlooking the city of Manila.
We maybe need a little bigger one!
Yes, he has driven our car a few times already!
He also has already visited three of the groups that we work with.
PROVIDENT CHRISTIAN CHURCH IN MARIKINA
Thursday night Essentials in Reformed Doctrine class.
Saturday morning children's catechism class.
MARANATHA PRC IN VALENZUELA
Rev. Kleyn preached in Maranatha on Stephan's first Sunday here (May 31).
The consistory graciously allowed Stephan to sit in on their meeting that afternoon.
On Stephan's second Sunday here (June 7) we were scheduled again for Maranatha PRC. This time, though, Stephan led the first worship service -- his first ever! He did a good job of speaking a Word of edification for the first time. His text was Genesis 3:15, "A Promise Amidst Curses: Satan's Head Crushed."
Just before we started.
At the end of the service.
Chatting with some of the young people.
PROTESTANT REFROMED CHURCH IN BULACAN
After church in Maranatha on June 7, we had to leave right away to be able to attend the monthly consistory meeting of the PRC in Bulacan. Once again the men graciously agreed to allow Stephan to sit in on their meeting.
A giant? ;-)
