A Time To Build

From the International Director

It is with some sense of accomplishment that I present the proposed National Centre for the Philippines. It will be a strategic development of the ministry of the CRC in that nation.

In the Asian psyche, it is very important that there be evidence of permanency in what we do. The thinking of the Filipino is steeped in hundreds of years of religious and cultural tradition. We are now clearly conveying that the CRC is here to stay and that we have put our roots down.

It has always been a long-term goal to see such a base established for the future of the work in the Philippines. A base will accommodate the continuing growth throughout the diverse cultures of the 80 provinces of the nation.

I ask you to commit to this project as it will be an

investment in the future of the work of the Kingdom and in the Philippines. I encourage you as a church and as an individual to invest in this project and in doing so partner with the integrity and sacrifice of our Filipino family. They have given much and continue to do so.

A commitment to the National Centre will strengthen the hands of our Filipino brethren, which I am sure will in turn inspire them to greater heights of devotion and sacrifice for Christ and His Kingdom.

I ask you to give sacrificially and in faith so that your contribution will result in a returned harvest to all, both for the giver as well as the receiver.

This is my prayerful desire
