Dear <<First Name>>,
We are happy to share with you that eighteen (18) pastors and church workers from different tribal communities successfully finished the first full Cebuano Kairos Missions Course we conducted for Evangel Tribal Training Center (ETTC)! While these participants already engaged in cross-cultural work, God enabled them to see a wider and global perspective of missions through this course. Pastor Fuentes Tumindog, a Matigsalug, testified, “I once thought that all tribes are already reached, but I was awakened and came to realize that many tribes are yet to be reached with the Gospel.”
For Pastora Mivelyn Margate, ETTC head, the course is an answered prayer as they have been seeking for God’s direction. She concluded that “there is still work to be done and the task will not be easy but we can begin in prayers and through other practical ways.”
We thank God for this timely opportunity! Let us pray for deeper understanding of their unique contribution in the missions enterprise as tribal churches. Pray also for us, for wisdom in walking along side ETTC in this journey. We are confident of this “that He who began ‘this good work’ will carry it on to completion until the day of Jesus Christ!” (Phil. 3:6)
How we praise the Lord for your partnership in the ministry until now! Please find enclosed our prayer bulletin for the month of September. Please do contact us and we will be glad to hear from you and know your specific prayer requests.
In Christ's service,
Sherelle C. Cotecson

May God pour out His divine enablement for the facilitators and participants. May God give them insights as they help the participants develop workshop outputs for their respective ministries. Let us remember in prayer the persecuted church worldwide. Pray that this training will become a tool to witness to unbelievers in their community. Pray for God’s traveling mercies.
