TARLAC CITY, Philippines (BNc) — Missionary Michael Hildreth got off to a fast start after arriving in the Philippines last month. With some Philippine brethren, he began a new congregation in his target city.
The new work had 26 adults in attendance the first Sunday meeting Jan. 6 in their newly rented quarters.
“Not a bad start! God is good!” Michael wrote.
The building, located on a major avenue, will also serve as their principal means of outreach, a type of storefront evangelism.
The new effort established a goal of converting 100 souls in 2013.
A new website has been set up for the new work.
Michael is overseen by the Sherman Drive church in Denton, Tex.
Randal and his wife Vicki have lived and worked in Brazil since Nov. 1984. They have three married children and six grandchildren. He sometimes writes “7 Points.” http://randal.us
