Our Dear Beloved Brethren In the Lord,

"Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord." (I Cor. 15:58).

As we strive reaching more places, families, and individuals for the Lord we always rely on His promise that He will never leave us, nor forsake us - no need to fear on those that oppose (Heb.13:5-6; 2 Tim.2:25; 4:14-18). With God's grace and strength as well as your fervent prayers (Col.4:12) and sacrificial distribution (I Tim.6:18):

1). We were able to witnes and distribute many gospel tracts in front of various business establishments, such as malls, grocery stores, bus terminals, restaurants, main streets as well as on villages with many stray barking dogs almost on every side of the streets - like some security guards who belong to a very influential religion here in the Philippines that, like dogs, barks at us through shouting and prohibiting us to pass out tracts to people that passes by in front (sidewalks) and not inside their business building. In spite of that experiences we gained fruits of souls saved by God's grace as well as sympathies, thankfulness and commendation from several people who saw and witnessed our effort to courteously reach out our countrymen for spiritual enlightenment and salvation. Indeed, God's amazing grace is being seen (Acts 11:23), as we, and you out there, are working together to more hell-bound sinners in the regions beyond!

2). We were able to minister, as well, to those who were invited to our organized activities, like evangelistic, revival, worship, small-group, youth-outreaches activities held in various villages and towns where our established church mission works are situated. These have resulted very inspiring and heart-warming outcomes of souls that made public profession of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. The gospel of Christ (I Cor.15:1-4) was clearly preached unto them and the conviction of the Holy Ghost was being felt and most of the adult women were crying as they came forward. Glory to God for all these wondrous works of His!

3). We were able to reach more radio listeners - to our Radio Bible Ministry - in other remote places of our country as well as in various countries like Sacramento, California (Lopez family); Western Australia (Manrique family); United Kingdom (Mrs. Camille William); Saudi Arabia (Rhoge & some co-workers; Fujian, China (Rose Ong & family); Singapore (Lumanta family); Rimini, Italy (Mercado family); Netanya, Israel (Ms. Miriam Ramos & family). Because of your unselfishness, care, sacrifices, love, especially your wholehearted prayer and the financial support of those who aids us in God's work here in the Philippines, with their hard-earned money, all these were gained simply because of the Lord's sufficient grace!

4). Thank you very much to those who helped us in purchasing chairs now being used by three of our established church mission works in the Lord.

5). Please pray for upcoming activities: Church ladies fellowship (Dec. 3); Church family-and-loved ones fellowship (Dec. 20); Bible Conference (Dec. 21);Baptist Evangelistic Camp (Dec.27-30). Any help and love gifts, as the Lord provides, for the needs of these activities will be greatly appreciated. Please help us pray. Hear from you soon. Thank you, thank you!

Hebrews 6:10

Mayo 25, 2011


Dear beloved brethren in Christ,

This preserving and enabling "grace of God for the work" (Acts 14:26) is a visible manifestation (Acts 11:23) of God's great love (Eph. 2:4) and power in your lives and in our loves together for the work of Christ (Phil. 2:30). Because of this sufficient grace, the Apostle Paul testifies in 1Cor. 15:10, "But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me."
Besides of our regular tasks of soul winning in public places and house-to-house; discipling, equipping and training; visitation and follow up, the Lord has enabled us to do more great things as our time in this present "evil world" (Gal. 1:4; I Jn. 5:19) is running out.
Our April 18-21, 2011 Church family camp has resulted profession of faith among some adults and youths.
Secondly, the Baptist Preaching Revival hosted by our pastor friend in Luna, Apayao on May 10-13, 2011 was indeed a great blessing of revival among attendees. Topics about our Authorized King James Bible 1611 (celebrating its 400th year anniversary), Christian Ministry, Family values, etc., were preached and taught from the Bible that builds (Acts 20:32).
Thirdly, our Mission Conference held at God's church here at Dau, Mabalacat, Pampanga (home of Hampton Court Bible Institute) last May 19-20, 2011 was a big booster on the value and urgency of God's mission/ministry. Eph 5:16 says, "Redeeming the time, because the days are evil."
Fourthly, Street and Market Preaching as well as Mission Emphasis were held the next day, May 21, 2011 at our church mission work in the Municipality of Zaragosa, Nueva Ecija. Several hundreds of assorted gospel tracts were passed out as preachers have alternately preaching the gospel of the grace of God (Acts 20:24; I Cor. 15:1-4) to the crowd.
Brethren, we are so grateful for your continued prayer and financial help (regularly or occasionally). We are so deeply blessed and thankful because of your unceasing prayer (Col. 4:3; 2 Thes. 3:1) and readiness to distribute (I Tim. 6:18) all for God's work and for His glory (Col. 3:24-25). We are encouraged and inspired to do more great things for the Lord because of His love (Rom. 5:8; Eph. 5:1-2; I Jn. 3:16; I Jn. 4:19) and because of you who loves us and cares for us. God bless you all.

Dear Praying saint(s),

We continue praising God for the sufficiency of His grace (2 Cor. 12:9)! Despite of encountered and experienced difficulties in developing our started mission churches – established in the faith (Acts 16:5) – training those who were called into the ministry through our Bible Institute and do more great things for the Lord in some more reachable areas, He enabled us to survive and continue in the ministry – fight a good fight, finish the course and keep the faith (2 Timothy 4). Thank you, thank you for praying unto God for us (Acts 12:5) and heartily saluting those who continually share their God-given financial blessings (Acts 17:5; Phil. 4:10-19 ) to aid for the work of Christ (Phil. 2:17-30).

Consistent gospel tracts distribution – individually, on public places, from house to house – family home Bible studies, Radio and public ministry, one on one evangelism, camp meetings, evangelistic and revival meetings, Bible conferences, churches’ thanksgiving services and other endeavours, God has given us many victories of profession of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ – several of them got baptized already in water – victories of spiritual edification and joyfulness in serving the Lord and more doors of opportunity to preach God's words.

Our eight (8) established Bible-believing missions/churches are living proofs of God’s amazing grace since 1997. WE are so grateful to God for giving us, some as prayer partners, and some as financial supporters. Indeed, God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love (Hebrews 6:10).

We already finished putting tiles on the floor of our church sanctuary here at Dau, Mabalacat, Pampanga.

Kindly help us pray unto God for the following:
1). Spiritual growth of Mr. & Mrs. Valencia. The husband used to work at Japan Embassy in Japan and has been a hater of any form of Bible study before he got paralyzed recently and not able to work anymore. With that kind of situation he became interested to hear God's word that speaks of the gospel of Christ (I Cor. 15:1-4; Ephesians 1:13) and he got saved. That's really surprised the wife and thus thanked the Lord for that.
2). The bereaved family of Mr. Loren Libao, forty three years old, who just got saved last Sunday Church Anniversary service held last Jan. 30 at our first established Mission church (MBFBC) in Baliwag, Bulacan. He's been diabetic and just died yesterday with cardiac arrest. He heard clearly Christ's gospel when I preached emphatically and he's one of the nine (9) who were not ashamed to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as their Saviour.
3). God's willing, to get Accordion(s), even used, for our Children outreach ministry and Music ministry.
4). Spiritual growth of our brethren in our latest Mission work at Divisoria, Mexico, Pampanga as well as for better place of our worship services there. We need some kind of fund to do some beautification and development for our current place of worship.
5). Help us pray for at least 12 individual brethren in Christ who could help us sacrificially for $25 each monthly.
6). Bible Institute graduation (March), Family Camp (April) and Mission Conference (May).
7). My family's health and needs - my 3 kids' school tuition fees this coming SY2011-2012 which to be started this coming June.
Hear from you soon.

My family and I have learned, in whatsoever state we are, therewith to be content (Phil. 4:10-13; I Cor. 15:10). With God, together with His concerned-and-soul-loving people, we can do more things for the preaching of the gospel in the regions beyond (2 Cor. 10:16) and build local New Testament churches (Acts 16:5). Note: We have gathered our fourteen (14) baptized believers in Christ (Acts 5:14), at a nearby town, for three Sundays now, for worship services. Your prayer for their spiritual edification and for the development of the mission work is humbly requested.
With God, together with His people's sincere and humble prayer as well as their sacrificial generosity and liberality (Prov. 11:24-25; 2 Cor. 8:7-12), we can continue our public ministries (Acts 20:20) and get lost people - whom we should love (Mark 12:29-31; Rom. 15:2-3)- saved and edified! Note: A young adult lady from Mindanao, a place of Muslim terrorists and kidnappers, who came to our area here in Pampanga to follow up her job application to Hon Kong, had happened to receive one of our gospel tracts on Aug. 21, after she read it and the address at the back, she came to our church on Sunday A.M. service, got saved with tears of rejoicing. She went to Hong Kong last August 26 as domestic helper. Please pray for her growth in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ (2 Pet. 3:18).
With God, together with your regular prayer and either regular, or occasional financial support to our God-entrusted church-planting, Bible-training, Radio-Bible broadcasting and public ministries, we can do more great things for the Lord as we are "Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;" (Titus 2:13; 2 Tim. 4:5-8).Child of the living God, would you help now (Gal. 6:10)? Please see at the bottom section of this blog how you send your help. Thank you. Hear from you soon. God bless you.

Dear praying saints in Christ,

"Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour." (Ephesians 5:1-2). These verses really gives us more fire in our hearts to continue serve our living and true God (I Thess. 1:9); for we are not only to believe on Christ, but also to suffer for his sake (Philippians 1:29).
March 23, 2010, our Pre-Elem Graduation and Elementary students Recognition day was held at our Church Sanctuary wherein some of our parent visitors have made profession of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
March 31 through April 2, 2010 Preaching Baptist Revival (A Bible Conference) was held in the Municipal Building of Luna, Apayao (approx. 700 kms. away, North). The preaching of the gospel of the grace of God has benefited attended unbelievers with salvation and did great encouragement to many preachers and believers. It's a twelve (12) hour travel.
April 13-16, 2010 our Annual Summer Camp was held at the same venue as last year. Again, victory in the Lord Jesus Christ was gained through many expressed testimonies of several campers - through the solid preaching of God's living words (Jonh 6:63; Hebrews 4:12) they have been convicted, cleansed, challenged and called to served! Glory to God for the manifestation of His grace (Acts 11:23).
April 19-22, 2010 my family and I, together with some youth, we went to Lipa City, Batangas (more or less 300 kms. away Southwest) for another Camp Meeting joined by several fellowship churches near that area. After my Wednesday preaching (April 21) of the gospel of Christ (I Cor. 15:1-4) and His words (Rom. 10:17), at least eight (8) hippie-looking, earrings-decorated and hair-spiked-looking youth were convicted and came forward, with repentant hearts, have weepingly accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as their Saviour and Lord. After the invitation moment was ended, these 8 young people, together with those who have been enlightened, touched and blessed with God's powerful words made their heart-warming testimonies! O what a glory and grace in the Lord! Please pray for their spiritual growth.
May 18, 2010 a great day of our 1st Bible School Commencement Exercise, a gracious product of our collective effort, love and sacrifices, was held here at Hampton Court Bible Institute (MBFBC-Dau) wherein nine (9) Graduate of Theology Degree and eighteen (18) underclassmen were recognized and received their corresponding Diplomas and Certificates.
May 20-23, 2010 our Annual Mission Conference was held victoriously by the grace of God. Eleven God's preachers were with me during the course of this very important activity in reminding and challenging God's people of the eternal value of Christ work where neither sickness, life nor death could prevent this high, holy and heavenly calling for all believers to do - "PREACHING NOT OURSELVES, BUT CHRIST JESUS THE LORD; AND OURSELVES YOUR SERVANTS FOR JESUS' SAKE" (2 Cor. 4:5).
Truly, we wholeheartedly salute and thank those who've been praying for us and helping us with their hard-earned finances regularly and occasionally. We are so grateful to God for using you unselfishly and sacrificially. Thank you, thank you for your untiring love and concern.
Please help us pray to find donors to get even a slightly used vehicle (van) to replace our 1992 model Korean van which we purchased, as used, on March 2001. It's been in the repair shop oftentimes and NOW it is still at the shop for three weeks now after our Lipa City Camp (April 19-22). We are praying for, at least, $15,000.00USD. The needed vehicle is VERY USEFUL in "reaching out...," "follow up," "revisiting" (Acts 15:36) and in many urgent activities in our church-planting, equipping and training believers, fetching visitors, etc. Would you help?

In His service,
Bro. Angel Duenas & family
