Fruitful Philippines Mission April-May 2017

Family Camp

Pampanga,Philippines, “Finnish the task-Going on to Maturity”  was the theme for Family Camp with Zion Church of the First Born and  affiliated churches. More than 689 campers came  together celebrating the goodness of God, worshiping and reuniting with friends.  Approximately 300 youth participated in creative dramas, games and spiritual challenges. 

 

 

 

Church Revival

In Zamboanga City, Mindanao we had a 3 nights of Revival in a village church. Tender hearts were open for God to move.

Church Revival

Youth Camp

In Luzon, new believers and seekers ventured out of their comfort zone to come to camp for a new experience and hearing about Jesus, thanks to Pastor Noy and Beng Andres Youth Camp

 

 

 

We were blessed to be with Pastor Pablo and Sister Devine at Taytay New Life Church in Taytay, Rizal at their 35 Church Anniversary. Also with Pastor Bob and Delor Rogers at Voice of Hope where there when God broke through and brought healing, deliverance and infilling of the holy Spirit.

Student Support We only have two people who give directly to help us support these children. Please pray for these children and about joining us in this life changing ministry.

We appreciate your prayer for our next trip to the Philippines, Vietnam, and China in November.

Philippines April 10-May 10, 2017

First of all, we want to thank everyone who prayed about our itinerary. Within 24 hrs. of our prayer request for clarity almost everything was settled!

We will be speaking at ZCF churches’ family camp ‘holy week’ and Easter Sunday.

The following week we fly to Zamboanga city in Mindanao to visit friends and Hope for Kids children’s home. We will be looking at repairs on a village church and preaching a revival there. The church in Fernandez Dr. needs a fresh touch of the Holy Spirit. A false apostle passed through and left some wreckage.

Third week we are with Pastor Noy Andres at youth camp.

We will be visiting the students we support and speaking in churches on Sundays.  I am hoping to get another booklet completed by then. OMF Philippines has done excellent work with my books.

Besides the unexpected divine appointments to pray for the sick, counsel people, and do our best to encourage pastors, there is nothing to do…

Prayer Requests:

  1. Please pray for us as we prepare for this trip and also for the excellent team who cover the bases at home. David made a law in Israel: Those who watch the stuff share equal of the spoils with those who went to the battle. (1 Samuel 30:24)
  2. China and Vietnam are on our hearts this year but there is no schedule yet. I mentioned Africa in the last request, but that tentative trip has been postponed. I was to team with Chris Heian, but he became quite ill on his recent mission to Myanmar and Thailand. He is still not fully recovered. Thank you for praying for him.

Thank You for supporting us!

Prayer Always Works

The mind of man makes plans, but the Lord directs his steps. (Proverbs 16:9)
This is a quick note to ask for prayer. Our first trip is set for the Philippines April 10-May 10. Our itinerary there has not been confirmed.
Also on the horizon is China this summer and Vietnam in the fall. Although we carefully planned, the last two trips to Vietnam were cancelled.
We have also been praying about a return to Liberia where we visited in 2009. So far we have no confirmation.
Thank you for standing with us.

Full Speed Ahead

Before Jesus became the Lord and Master of my life in 1971, I was quite pessimistic about the future. I was sure the world would self destruct. I had 7 reasons we would all be gone by the year 2000.

Here we are in 2017! I am more optimistic than ever! Our theme this month is “Fill your tank, start your engine, and floor it”.  My optimism is not based on economic forecasts or political prospects.  It is based on knowing the heart of a loving God who is still in the saving business. Jesus is still healing the broken hearted. His grace is enabling people to overcome their addictions. Families are being reconciled, hungry people being clothed and fed, and new generations of young people committing their lives to serving others as they serve Jesus.

The biggest problem in mission is not doors closing, but people who have the faith to go through the doors that are open!  The harvest fields of the world are ripe, but the laborers are few.

We have been blessed this last year with many opportunities to serve the Lord overseas and here in America. We thank all those who have supported us in pray and finances to accomplish the things God has put on our hearts and the doors he has opened for the Gospel. We welcome those who would like to partner with us again this year.

Perhaps you are interested in supporting the the work based on the country we are ministering in, or the particular projects and people that we are working with or maybe you just like us and what we are doing and want to be part of building the kingdom of God. We welcome all. Just contact us through the website, email or personal phone call. We would love to hear from you.

May you have a great year in 2017. Don’t miss an opportunity to do your best for God’s glory,

Dennis and Diane Teague

BTW my new booklet “Jesus’ Peace is Yours!”  is now available for free upon request.

 

Upcoming Mission

Headed to Philippines, Honk Kong and China, Fall 2016

Several people have asked me lately, “How can you keep  going on these mission trips?” 2 Cor. 5:13-15 If we are ‘out of our minds’, it is for God…the love of God compels us. Although we address issues related to global concerns, elections, economics and fearful circumstances, our main focus is building the Kingdom of God. We will complete our personal marathon looking to Jesus, the Author and Finisher of the race. (1 Corinthians 15:58)
Daily devotions, a cup of coffee, and a hand full of vitamins and away we go!  

Dennis and Diane Return From Mongolia

Dear Friends,

Thank you for praying for a miracle for Denise Loreto , one of the high school students we support in the Philippines. She had an episode recently that was diagnosed as a heart murmur and told she should not participate in PE or sports.

 Wrestle with us in prayer for the property dispute in the village on the outskirts of Zamboanga city. We started the church 30 yrs ago and the local believers have kept it going and prospered there. 

China Beckons Diane and I are part of a team that went to China June 18-26. We were involved in training on-fire believers from inner Mongolia.

After 18 yrs of work a revised translation of the Tibetan New Testament is just out. Any donkeys for Jesus want to saddle up?

 New booklets:

Jesus’ Joy is Yours

Jesus’ Power is Yours

Jesus’ Victory is Yours

Wind of Doctrine or Wind of the Spirit? – How to Know the Difference (second edition)
