Workers and Trainees Retreat 2013

???????????????????????????????On April 2-4, we conducted our Annual Workers and Trainees Retreat. We enjoyed 3 days of fun, Biblical studies, individual and group reflection, and re-focusing in beautiful Camiguin Island!

???????????????????????????????

During the sessions (a cumulative total of 8 hours), Pastor Glem Melo expounded on Matthew 16:13-28. Much discussion about the nature of the church, church polity and church discipline ensued. Individual and group sharing, and class consultation on matters of church, ministry and life direction was conducted. It was all encouraging and beneficial to everyone. Most of all, important individual and group decisions were made that will definitely have a long-term impact on the work of the Lord in Mindanao and the Philippines.

Please continue to pray for our workers and trainees. May the Spirit’s work of reformation through Christ’s word continue in our hearts, lives, families, churches and mission work for the glory of God!

I am the founder and CEO of Open Eyes Mission, under the care of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) Chicago Metro Presbytery, pastoral intern at Faith Church in Dyer, Indiana, and studying Master of Divinity at Mid-America Reformed Seminary. The Bible teaches that God is real, man is sinful, hell is real, and Jesus is our only hope of salvation. I believe these truths with all of my heart, and I hope to help others learn of them as well.
