July Missions Emphasis:

Pastor Melo Lumibao, Independent Baptist Church of Masinloc, Zambales, Philippines 

Even facing the challenges that the COVID 19 virus has brought to the Philippines, the ministry of the First Independent Baptist Church of Masinloc continues.  Many families in Zambales are suffering because of the restrictions that have been put in place to slow the spread of the virus. Travel has been severely restricted, and many businesses have had to close.  One of the many ways that FIBC Masinloc is showing the love of Christ is by preparing and distributing food to families.  We were able to participate in this by giving the funds we had collected for the mission trip to go toward aid/relief efforts.

 

Pray for the families affected by the COVID 19 crisis.

 

 

One significant ministry of FIBC is Masinloc Christian Academy, a Christian elementary school. This year the school is working hard to offer online learning as they adjust to the changing restrictions and lockdowns.  Classes begin August 10. 

Pray for Teachers and students of Masinloc Christian Academy.

Pastor Melo and Family
