Philippines Report - Sunset in the Philippines

I was blessed to be able to travel to and teach in our four schools in the Philippines. Charles Smith, the founder and administrator of the schools, has done a fantastic job of instilling a heart for evangelism and church planting in the minds of our co-workers and students in the Philippines. This spirit was a great blessing and something that every SIBI school should embrace. I am so thankful to those who support our family and ministry training schools like these for allowing us to participate in such efforts.

January - February 2008

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Well, a couple of months have come and gone, and the work is beginning to take off. I apologize for not writing sooner. My plan is to give monthly reports, but I have let the time get away from me over the past two months. However, that can be taken as a good sign, because the only way that time can get away is when we are really busy! As you may have guessed, since I have not written sooner, I am combining my report for January and February.

As for the work here, there are a lot of ideas and plans on how to effectively reach the lost and to help the church grow. We are even talking about another church plant here in the Recife area! The exciting part is that I am able to be a part of the planning! All of the training that I have endured at the beginning of this journey is beginning to become a reality to me!

Building and Maintaining Healthy Leader Relationships In The Church

Dear friends,
On March 18 I will be guiding a discussion at our local Mens'/Preachers' Meeting here in Columbia, SC. The topic I'm going to address is "Building and Maintaining Healthy Leader Relationships In The Church". I am asking for input from former and present elders, preachers, their wives and some others in the church. All input used will be anonymous. I value your participation in this study. I will be happy to send a copy of the final result to any that would like it in a Word attachment.

Support Update from the Goracke Family

Brethren,

It seems that every few days I receive word from brethren who have either joined with us as financial partners for the work in Singapore or are considering so. The Lord continues to bless us with one-time offerings. To date, He has secured us with 71% of our monthly needs and 100% of our one-time needs for our first budget year needs in Singapore. The monthly calculation continues to increase primarily from extra one-time contributions that are allotted towards our first year monthly needs.
