What's new?

Hi friends. The last few months have been so busy with Christmas celebrations and starting out a new year. We pray you are all well. Thank you for being so faithful to us.

2011 has brought some new and exciting things for His Heart. Here are some quick highlights:

  • The ministry has begun a second weekly outreach in another public elementary school. This is the 2nd school that we are targeting with daily feeding of about 35 malnourished children. Open to all, the children play games, sing songs, and learn about Jesus on Wednesday afternoons. The response has been incredible and there is NOT enough room to hold them all.
  • We are excited to begin a college age discipleship/service program in April. Three of our graduating youth will serve, learn, and grow through teaching, prayer, and encounter as they offer themselves to God for an entire year with the ministry. With their financial situations, and families making 3-4 dollars a day, this is a HUGE sacrifice. We are so proud of who they will become and believe this will be a LIFE CHANGING year for them.
  • We are seeing God touch lives and bodies more and more. One precious man was again healed of painful arthritis last week in the city park as his friend (a brand new believer) prayed for him. We just can't out do God. His goodness is overwhelming.
Above are some pictures of the street ministry and members of the house churches. We hope it gives you a glimpse of our hearts and the people we love here.

Your partners in the Philippines,
Paige and Kent Parrish
