Davao City WOTM Seminar this April

To all of you in Davao City and nearby towns and provinces, we will be there on April 21, 2011 to conduct a Way of the Master seminar. This is the first time we will go this far in doing a WOTM seminar.

The seminar will be held at Soli Deo Gloria Christian Ministries headed by Ptr. Jurem Ramos. The host church has committed to promoting this seminar to other churches in the area and to churches in nearby towns and provinces. We expect over a hundred Christians, church leaders and workers to attend this event. There's a great chance that this could be our biggest WOTM seminar since Living Waters Asia started in 2006.

Expect to be blessed and challenged by this event. The seminar is FREE and attendees can also expect a free copy of Ray Comfort's "God has a wonderful plan: The myth of the modern Gospel message" book and other exciting evangelism tools.

Hope to see you all this April at Davao City!

The Gospel in a youth conference

Last January 18, the managing director of Living Waters Asia, Dennis Mark Y. Aglosolos, was invited to speak in a youth conference in the beautiful town of Bustos, Bulacan. The event was part of the week-long staging of the town's Minasa Festival. In attendance were teachers and student leaders from different schools in Bustos, Bulacan.

Although Dennis was asked to do a talk on youth leadership, he grabbed the opportunity to share the Gospel to the participants of the conference. Please pray for the teachers and students that heard the Good News on this event.

Thanks to the municipal secretary of Bustos, Bulacan, Mr. Arnold Beltran, for the chance to speak on this event.

Evangelism with Aussie friends

Question: What happens when faithful Christians from the Philippines and Australia come together? Answer: You get a great time of evangelism!

Last February 3, the Living Waters Asia team joined two great Aussie friends and their Filipino friend in saturating the Araneta Center in Cubao, Quezon City, with thousands of Gospel tracts. Ptr. Craig Ireland and Luke Stewart whom we joined last December 2009 also for evangelism, were in the country for more than a week for a series of conferences that Ptr. Craig held in different Christian churches. Luke came along to do evangelism together with JM Vergara on the streets of Metro Manila. The LWA team joined them on their first day. The following week, Dennis Mark Y. Aglosolos joined Ptr. Craig in his conference in Malolos, Bulacan to distribute free copies of Ray Comfort's book "God has a wonderful plan: The myth of the modern Gospel message" to the pastors that attended the conference and to promote to them LWA's Way of the Master seminars.

Ptr. Craig and Luke are now back in Australia. We'd like to thank them for having a heart for the souls of Filipinos.

Witnessing Clip February 2011: The Skateboarding Buddies

When friends get together to do what they enjoy doing, you have a great opportunity to hit several birds with one stone, in the case of Christians that share the Gospel regularly, several people hearing the Gospel w/one presentation. That was the case when Dennis Mark Aglosolos shared the Good News to skateboarding buddies. Watch this clip:

A Special Message

2010 was such a landmark year for Living Waters Asia. We really saw God's hand in everything the ministry had accomplished. We are very thankful that you partnered with us in 2010. And so LWA made this short video clip so we can express to you our appreciation for your obedience to God's call to work hand-in-hand w/ us in delivering the true Gospel to the unsaved and in teaching and challenging other Christians to do the same. Please watch the video below:

December: Christmas Parties and Gospel-Sharing

"Tis the season to be jolly... and share the Gospel and give God the glory!" That's what Living Waters Asia did this Christmas season, from December 13 to 18.

December 13 was the day we held our yearly Christmas party for the inmates of the provincial juvenile jail of Bulacan (we've been doing this for five years already). We had the usual singing of Christmas carols, fun games & food. But most importantly, we again declared the Gospel to the young inmates. Although LWA holds a weekly Bible study in this facility, we keep on repeating the Gospel message to the inmates until we really see all of them turn their lives to Jesus, and this day was no exception.

LWA also did another Christmas party on December 17 at their ministry office which also runs a student center. Although the party was for the regular attendees of the Bible study held every Friday afternoon at the center, LWA also invited non-attendees of the Bible study to attend the event w/ the hope that the Gospel message they will hear in the program will finally struck them deep in their hearts. Everybody enjoyed the carol singing part, the games and the food. But for the LWA team, the most satisfying part was the delivery of the Christmas message of reconciliation w/ God through repentance and faith on Jesus Christ.

The following day, December 18, LWA did a Christmas outing for the faithful Christian volunteers working to make sure the biblical Gospel message is delivered to as many people as possible. The venue was at the La Mesa Eco-Park at Quezon City. The day was for fellowship and for thanksgiving for how God helped and used LWA in 2010. There was a sense of fulfillment in the air as talks went around what everyone experienced during a whole year of Gospel-sharing and WOTM seminars. And as that day was drawing to a close, the team was in anticipation for what God has in-store for LWA in 2011.

This week was so tiring! But we are always happy to have served our wonderful God.

Witnessing Clip December 2010: Using Christmas as Springboard

The Christmas season is a great springboard to use in sharing the Gospel to people. Everyone seems to have something to say about this yearly event. Watch how Dennis Mark Aglosolos used this very exciting Christian holiday to make an unsaved realize that Christmas day happened because of man's very serious problem: SIN.

Witnessing Clip (Nov. 2010): Cebu City Open-Air Preaching

To all of you who want to see how you can get the attention of people in the outdoors so you can preach the Gospel to them, here's a clip of Dennis Mark Y. Aglosolos preaching at Colon St. (oldest street in the Philippines), Cebu City during GOSPEL BUZZ 2010.

Successful Gospel Buzz 2010

This year's GOSPEL BUZZ at Cebu was a big success! The 5th staging of this evangelistic mission trip happened from Oct. 24 to Oct. 29. God provided every cent we needed and even more. He answered our prayer for less rain during the dates that we were there. And the strength that every member of the team needed was definitely abounding as evidenced by how many Cebuanos got to hear and read the Gospel.

Almost everyone of the 20,000 Gospel tracts that we brought to Cebu were distributed. Even a cab driver that Dennis Mark Aglosolos witnessed to distributed 500 tracts to 500 cab drivers because he was so convicted by the message that emphasized sin, righteousness and judgment that he thought it important to also share the message to others. Hundreds got to hear the Gospel through one-to-one Gospel-sharing and in open-air preaching sessions. A significant number of Christians were also trained in the Way of the Master through the mini-WOTM seminar the team did at Living Word Church, I.T. Park, and several of them were so challenged that they joined the LWA team in the streets.

We can only thank and praise the Lord for what He did in the trip. We can't wait for the next trip. To all of you who prayed and supported the trip financially, "Thank you very much!" Please enjoy this video we made documenting what transpired during Gospel Buzz 2010.

Gospel-Preaching & Bible Distribution

Last October 16, 2010, Living Waters Asia went to Nueva Ecija (about 5 hours drive from Manila), to a very remote place in the province to share the Gospel and to distribute 300 Tagalog Bibles to people who will be hearing the Good News and to Christians who crave for their own copy of God's Word.

Dennis Mark Y. Aglosolos delivered the Gospel message to audience that included local candidates to that month's Barangay Elections. The Bibles were donated by Christians from the US and from Generics Pharmacy, a Christian pharmaceutical company in the Philippines.

This was the second time the LWA team came to Nueva Ecija. The first time was about five years ago when they were part of the evangelism team in a medical mission organized by Buddy and Arleen Valdez. A church was established because of that medical mission. A lot of the recipients of the Bibles are members of that church.

Please pray for our next Bible-Evangelism activity one to two months from now.
