Exciting news to report! Palmcroft Baptist Church in Phoenix, AZ has informed Praise International that they are going to be sending $35,000 to finance the construction of a Home to house 40 children in Digos, Mindanao, Philippines. Also they are going to be sending $30, 000 to build 10 duplexes in Salur, India for a community that is working with people struggling with Leprosy.
What an amazing gift, and what an amazing God we serve.
Pastor Jim Bull and I were in the Philippines and India, during the last part of June and the first part of July. It was so exciting to see what God has been up to with these Praise pastors. The conference we spoke at had approximately 175 pastors attending. Pastor Levi Adrales is our lead pastor and contact there in Mindanao. We currently assist 147 pastors and Levi provides oversight. He and his wife have taken 12 children into their home and provide for them. I have established a project to construct a children’s home there and we are going to need to raise approximately $40,000.
John Nanda, our lead pastor and contact in India provides oversight for about 65 churches and we also assist all of them financially. We had approximately 175 pastors attend a conference there in Vishakhatpnam. The scope of the ministry there includes a leprosy colony, several tribal churches, the Waggoner children’s home that currently has 42 children, and various other ministry assistance projects. While there pastor Jim Bull of Palmcroft Baptist in Phoenix was able to participate in the dedication of two churches that Palmcroft provided funds for.
What an exciting time we had there, worshipping with God’s people. God is working in our world and there is much gratitude for all that has been given by those who support the work of Praise International.
