ARE YOU INTERESTED IN PRAYING FOR AND SUPPORTING A SMALL CHURCH & MINISTRY IN THE PHILIPPINES?
AN URGENT NEED… PLEASE HELP OR SPONSOR…
This little flock of the “Christ Harvest Chapel” in the Philippines… and outreach to the poor and needy children in this area. Steve Spindler is 2nd from right.
They have NO form of income to live on, have used all their personal resources and don’t have any outside help, sponsors or a “Home Church” to depend on for financial support for this work. So Steve is about to return to America alone to try and find some employment back in America as soon as possible… try to find a Church that may be interested in helping to sponsor his work… and be able to return to Edna and the ministry ASAP.
(UPDATE: He has done this, procured work for a while and returned to Edna but now in June 2015 it seems necessary to return again and try to make it possible for Edna to join him in America in a year. This is UNLESS they are given sponsorship to remain in the Philippines and continue this work which is starting to bear good fruit)
The Philippines is a very poor country, many living in shacks like this. Some members of the Church visit and read Bible stories to these children in one of the poor areas every Saturday and pick up some on Sundays if their parents want. Transport there is mainly by hired Jeepneys or tricycles. As you can see it is like another world compared to Westernized society.
If you know any one else or a Church or men’s or women’s group who would be interested in sponsoring this small part of the Lord’s flock, please pass this on.
Please don’t leave this for someone else because there may not be anyone else! This is an URGENT appeal as of Feb. 2013… (and again now in June 2015) for right now they have no income to live on and cannot get work there. The people don’t want Steve to leave but no other option has opened. as you see they are too poor to help support him. He is also concerned about leaving Edna and others to take over the services, Bible study and prayer meetings for so long while he is away. The limited ministry to the poor children will continue while he is away.
The Church offerings are ONLY about $12 – $15 a week and 10% of that is sent to another poor church which they appreciate. Steve and Edna are very humble and appreciative people and don’t take anything for themselves as a stipend out of the offerings… so they have been trying to support themselves by a small wood making business… whilst providing the ministry. (I just feel led to make others in the Body of Christ aware of this need as I’m sure many others would love to help if they only knew)
The exchange rate means an Australian or American dollar goes a lot further there. Even $10 is very appreciated as they live on just over $100 a week for rent, food etc. Please pray for them for God’s guidance and supply to come in. Let’s believe the ministry to the poor and hungry children can be increased by providing food as well if enough donations come in, for this ministry may result in these little souls being saved as they come to accept and love Yeshua / Jesus and be born again and filled with the Holy Spirit!
You and I can be a part of this vital work for the Kingdom of God on earth. Steve and Edna (pictured here with their lovely niece Janelle) are believers in Yeshua as the Messiah of Israel and have encouraged me in this website ministry about the Bride of Messiah (whom He is gathering unto Himself from Jews and Gentiles) Only because Steve started emailing me about that, did I find out where he lived and what his ministry was. These are some of the photos he has sent. If you contact Steve I’m sure you could arrange to speak to him by phone or on Skype.
Yes, this is a small, unknown, independent ministry at present but the Lord is there and He sees and knows… YAHWEH SHAMMAH! More details about Steve Spindler’s teaching ministry is on a Post I made in Jan. 2013 and their contact details are at the base of that page.
