Myanmar (Burma) April 17-27 Dennis flew to Mandalay through China and joined the Frontier Harvest team driving to the city of Lashio for three days of ministry at a church/children’s home. Children keep coming from the hills because there is no school and little food. The rebels take the boys and make them soldiers in the 65 yr. old civil war. The children’s home has minimal facilities, but the kids are safe, fed, and go to school which is an hour walk one way. On the 3rd day of our conference it was my joy to share a message with the kids and pray with them to receive Jesus as their Lord.
Mission Concepts supports students in the Philippines
Thanks to MC supporters Bart and Syca graduated from high school. They have little support at home because of family dysfunction and unemployment. They are on-fire believers who passed there entrance exams and are headed to university
Ellamae Vilan, a fourth grader, comes from a poor fishing family in a remote area of Southern Luzon. Her parents are not believers, but she and her sister are faithful to the church. Her sister, Elaine, will be a second grader. They are pictured in the ‘moving up’ ceremony at the end of the school year, which means they passed to the next grade
Marjorie is now grade 9 in June. She was abandoned by her parents and is being raised in a squatter village by her grandmother. Her grandfather passed away last year. Her grandma does laundry to support them. Mission Concepts is supporting her throughhigh school and college if she wants to go.
Cesar (not pictured) is a shy boy who lives in the church in Malabon. He quit school last year, but the pastor, Eric Jaraba, has encouraged him to start the eighth grade. We have started giving money for Cesar this year.
We are helping the working widow, Mhey Loreto. Deanie, forth year, and Dennis go to Western Mindanao State University. Denise is an eighth grader this year.
On April 27 I met Diane in Hong Kong and we flew to the Philippines. We spoke in churches, did a seminar on sound doctrine in Baguio City, and shared in Antipolo New Life Church. Unfortunately the pastor passed on to heaven, but his daughter is doing an excellent job in his place.
While in Zamboanga, Mindanao we visited Hope for Kids, since I am on the board. The children’s home was founded by Gail Ashby and directed by Al Cabading. The government agent who visited recently said it was the best facility he’d seen in the whole country.
- Please pray for the students MC support, Hope for Kids, and the Lashio Children’s home in desperate need of a boy’s dorm.
- For Frontier Harvest’s plan to plant a church in Mandalay in August.
- Our daughter, Faith, doing medical mission work in the middle east.
Thank You for Your Support! We are Co laborers in Christ.
Dennis and Diane Teague
