Dear Bro. Mike and Bro. Roger,
Grace be to you, and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
I would like to give you an update on what the Lord is doing to the UTT Feeding
Ministry and Bryce Homes during the 1st Quarter of 2018.
UNDERSTAND THE TIMES PHILIPPINES FEEDING MINISTRY
By the grace and mercy of God the feeding ministry funded by Understand The
Times is used by God not just to feed the poor children but to be the means of
evangelizing them. As the year passed by, I have seen how the Word of God shaped
the lives of these children grown up in our ministry. They were once listening
to the bible stories and messages while waiting for their food but now as grown
up young people they are the one teaching for the younger ones.
We have new generation of children ages 6-10 attending church services. They
stay at the church to attend church services and to worship God even after
attending their own Sunday school class and feeding ministry. Truly the Lord is
awesome and worthy to be praised for his grace is boundless and no respecter of
person, race or culture. Some of our young members started at the childrenís
feeding ministry. Now, they are used by God as teachers and supporters for this
ministry. Please continue to pray for Understand The Times Philippines Feeding
Ministry for the Lord is working in the lives of these children.
BRYCE HOMES PHILIPPINES
Every home and family experiences times of trials and troubles but if Christ is
the foundation of that home it will remain strong in the midst of tempest and
storm. Bryce Homes Philippines underwent trials and shaking for the past months
and it resulted to the eviction of some of the recipients and to replace them
with kids who can comply and are more deserving to be in the Bryce Homes
The current set of students (both old and new) are worthy to be in the program.
They are doing well in school and faithful to the Lord by attending church
services and prayer meetings. Their parents are supportive as well by lending
their help in feeding ministry and church activities. We continue to give school
and food allowances for each child in the Bryce Homes. We also have summer
activities for them with their families, like summer camp last month and daily
vacation Bible school God willing next month (May).
Please continue to pray for Bryce Homes Philippines for we know that God is
using this ministry to bring families to the Lordís church. We are sowing seeds
of kindness to the heart of these children and we know someday we will reap a
reward for they themselves will help other less fortunate children in their
schooling because they experienced Godís mercy and kindness through Bryce Homes
On behalf of the Lordís ministry here in the Philippines I would like to express
our deepest gratitude to all the supporters of Understand The Times and Bryce
Homes with their leaders, Bro. Michael Miller and Bro. Roger Oakland. Thank you
so much brethren.
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in
the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not in vain in the
Lord. (1 Corinthians 15: 58)
Sincerely in Christ,
Pastor Richard Sorilla
