Our work in Death Row in the Philippines
Report from Pastor Lucas Dungatan
Jeruel Institute of Theology, Maximum Security New Bilibid Prison, Muntinlupa, Manila, Philippines dated 27th October 2008
This is to express our heartfelt gratitude for sending Dr. Richard Kent and Rev. Roger French to our country to minister to us spiritually and materially.
We would like you to know that these servants of God, while here, used most of their time sharing the Gospel to the inmates and prayed for them. They preached in different churches inside the Maximum Security prison compound, in the Medium Security compound, and in the Correctional Institution for Women.
Many prisoners received the Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour by their evangelism and the Christian inmate brothers were encouraged and empowered by their preaching and teachings. Glory to God!
Dr. Kent and Rev. French also conduct seminars which are attended by more than a hundred Pastors and Christian Workers from the different churches of the province of Laguna, and they also sponsor a feeding program for about 100 school children.
We would like to express also our deepest gratitude for the material blessings that were provided for us through Dr. Kent's Final Frontier Charitable Trust Fund in 2008:
- A 10 seater Diesel Vehicle
- A 24 seater Jeepney for Pastor Fernando Perez
- A motorbike for Sister Leony.
- A photo Copier
- A DVD player
- 4 VCD Christian movies
- A laptop and a printer
- A projector
- Monthly salaries for Sister Leony and me, to be continued.
Again, we thank you very much and we pray that the bountiful blessings of our Loving Father be upon you all now and always.
With love and prayers,
Pastor Lucas P. Dangatan, Jr.
