News from Georgina King - July 2018
Greetings in Jesus name!
Wow! What an exciting and very busy few months it has been!
After arriving on the 1st March, I spent some time observing the churches and outreaches, from the mountains to the City to the coast.
It is very exciting to see what God has done out here and the work continues to grow! I am so blessed to be part of the work out here full time.
Since April I’ve been trying to master some of the songs sung in Bisaya and I have to say I’ve done pretty well! I’m also starting to learn some chords on the keyboard (which has been a bit of a mammoth task but I’m getting there!).
I’ve been involved in leading worship, which is a little out of my comfort zone as I prefer to be a backing singer, however through our Nights of Worship I have been able to build up my confidence in that area.
After the ECC team came to visit in April, we’ve continued the singing training/exercises that the Cluny Wiecki had taught whilst she was here on placement. We’re all trying to challenge each other with timing of songs but we’re having fun at the same time.
Children and Youth
The children and youth are continuing to grow at a rapid pace and I truly believe God is stirring up something with the new generation. Please continue to pray for our children and youth as they have all started a new year at school.
We will be expanding these ministries by having sub-ministries within them. We will also be starting our Performing Arts and Sports Clubs fairly soon and would appreciate your prayers as we will be opening this up to the children and youth in the community and a form of evangelism.
We had a very busy week in May as it was PCC’s Summer Camp, where children from the 3 feeding program outreaches and Sunday school attended. During one of the worship sessions, all the children experienced God’s presence - it was a very powerful time!
The children and youth have been teaching me new words each week and I’ve seem to be getting the hang of it! I even teach crèche once a month with an assistant, just in case I get things a little muddled with the language.
For the rapid growth in all ministries
Land for our north church Daan Bantayan
That I get a deeper understanding of the language so that I will be able to teach older generations and lead small groups.
More creativity with youth and children’s ministry.
Thank you all so much for your prayers thus far and for your support. I do miss home but at the same I feel at home here too.
