This recent report and accompanying photos were shared by FCAP leadership there: “We at FCAP-LTP/LTTP are happy to report to you the success of our mission trip in San Juan Batangas as part of our 18th year founding anniversary.  We assembled early morning (0600) on Saturday, September 22 in front of the LTP main gate and departed around 0700 with … a total of 18 missionaries and a lot of gifts and foods for the brethren of Glad Tidings and Kakawan churches…. The long haul trip to Batangas was never a boring one for we enjoyed our bonding moments together….” After checking into their accommodations and brief rest, they proceeded to the chapel and had a worship service attended by pastors of the above mentioned churches.  Zacky Flores, who came all the way from Sydney, Australia, was their guest speaker that evening and delivered a message related to their anniversary theme, “Better Together-Connect with One Another, Grow Together, Serve One Another.”

At 0400 the next morning they were up preparing for the worship service at Glad Tidings Church.  There they were warmly greeted by the brethren with all smiles on their faces.  After a time of praise and worship, Pastor Jake Aquino delivered a message.  The FCAP Praise and Worship team rendered a special song entitled “Sapagkat Ang Diyos Ay Pag Ibig” They write, “It was filled to overflowing with some people standing outside the church building but intently listening and participating.  During the alter call almost all of them came forward to be prayed for by the Lufthansa brethren, including the pastors and church workers.  It was like a revival service that morning where everybody felt the warm presence of the Holy Spirit.  To God be the glory!”  Gifts and treats were provided for the children.  The two pastors and their respective churches received financial love gifts from FCAP-LTP/LTTP and from a church.

In closing, they write, “We left the place and headed back to Manila … blessed and with gladness in our hearts.  To all the brethren who in one way or the other prayerfully, financially, materially, and physically supported our mission anniversary trip, thank you so very much.  Without your unselfish support, this would have not been possible.”
