PRAISE JESUS!

LORD'S DAY CAMP FOR GIRLS

In May we had Our Lord’s Day Camp for Girls! They had teachings and discipleship lessons during the day. The girls learned memory verses. There were also times of praise & worship and times of encouragement. They were encouraged and shown how important it is to have Jesus in their hearts as they grow older. How important it is to stay connected to the True Vine, Jesus, everyday! During the different activities the girls were shown even though they had hard lives, they still could have happiness and joy in their lives as they stay connected to our Lord Jesus Christ.

JackieLou and Hazel did discipleship teachings on:
1) "Let the young woman understand the meaning of life." 2) "Let the young woman understand the meaning of the importance of respect and obeying their parents and elders." 3) "Let the young woman understand the meaning of the importance of the Word of God to be kept in everyone’s Heart."

The girls also washed the curtains at the Refuge House. While they were doing that, they were reminded that even in the most mundane chores that they have to do at home, to do it heartily as unto our Lord Jesus Christ. That even in these hard chores they can have the Joy of the Lord.

It is a blessing to see young ones not complaining but joyfully doing chores! When told to do some chore, they throw up their hands and say "Praise Jesus, we get to wash clothes!" Over the years, many parents have sent their children to learn this!

They also had lots of fun activities playing different games during the day! During the day, they had delicious meals and snacks. The girls had a wonderful time and were so thankful and blessed! At the end of the day, they all wanted to know when the next Lord’s Day Camp for Girls would be!!

All the glory and honor and praise belongs to God, our Loving Heavenly Father. Thank you and God bless you for your love, prayers and encouragement.


LEADER SEMINAR

All leaders attended a Pastor's and Leadership Seminar in May, together with the youth who are in the Discipleship Phase of preparing to be leaders. They were so blessed to be able to build spiritual strength, share ways to reach the lost, learn from each other how to be better witnesses for our Lord Jesus, and most of all grow in faith.

They continue to attend monthly pastoral meetings together with Pastor Odgie and other pastors. It helps to guide spiritually and strengthen faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.


PRAYER REQUEST

Please pray for provisions for a new battery for the Kia Truck and also to replace the rear brakes. Battery and all brake parts with labor is approximately $300.00. Thank you & God bless you!!

PRAISE JESUS!

Praise our Heavenly Father for all the things he did for us through his Son Jesus Christ our Savior.

This month our Heavenly Father reminded us of His great, immeasurable love, compassion and salvation we received by sacrificing His Son Jesus Christ that He died on the cross for us to be connected again to the Father.

Our Heavenly Father reminds us everyday that He has always been our refuge and strength, and nothing is impossible with Him. We can trust our Heavenly Father for all that is happening in our lives, because our Lord Jesus paid all the things in our lives on the cross even in our situations we might face everyday. Our Heavenly Father gives us assurance. We just need to believe and have faith in the Lord in everything we have in our life.

Jesus is ALIVE !!
Blessings Teresa


This month we started feeding at Maharlika near the highway. There are 50 kids in that area. We ask permission from the Barangy Captain to use the center so that we can have shade because it’s an open area and it’s hot or sometimes it’s raining.

We are thankful to our Lord Jesus Christ for the opportunity to feed the children in that area. Some parents came with their children and the village president came also and gave us some help preparing firewood for us to use to cook.

Mother Vergie also came with us and helped us to cook, Refuge House youth and young teens presented a dance presentation.

The kids were so very thankful and enjoyed the whole time. Jackielou taught the kids a Bible story and gave some advice and encouragement from God's Word to the kids and the parents.

We are thankful to the Lord God to let us experience His love and His blessings, and strength to feed the children spiritually and naturally.

We are thankful for all of your prayers for us here. Thank you for all of your support and for the love of Jesus in you and for being a big part of I Am Born Again Ministries Family.

Everyday we are all praying for you to our Heavenly Father that He always continues to give whatever the desire of your heart. Thank you and God bless you - more treasure in Heaven for you!! This month we celebrate and remember the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross. To celebrate, Hazel prepared the showing of Jesus Christ film, around 60 came to watch the film showing. Early Sunday Sunrise Service, we start at 4:30 a.m til 7 a.m. There was a storm on Resurrection Sunday so we were not able to do the service on the beach. We had to hang sheets around the worship area to keep the rain from blowing in and we had our Sunrise Service there. It was Still a Wonderful Time in the Lord !! As of this month, we still could not go to some Barangy’s for Gospel outreach and feeding purposes, but hopefully after the election of the government we will be able to !! The people that want to come for Missions here need vaccine's record. I am not sure of all the requirements. Blessings Teres Please continue to Pray and Thank You for being a Vital part of the Refuge House Family.

We love you much much!! Be blessed and highly favored!
Thank you for being a part of Refuge House Family!!

PRAISE JESUS!

HE HAS RISEN FROM THE GRAVE!! HE IS ALIVE!!
We Pray you have a Blessed Resurrection Sunday!!

In March, our Refuge House Team was given permission by the Barangy Captain to hold Gospel outreaches in the village plaza and feeding the malnourished children. Everyone, our Refuge House Team, parents and children were so very thankful and so very blessed! It has been over two years since we were able to do the Gospel outreaches and feedings in any village plaza. The excitement and thankfulness was so very great!

Jackielou, Bernard, Ezekiel, and other Refuge House Team Youth are continuing the next phase of their very important discipleship to be a part of the decision making of all the different ministries of I AM Born Again Ministries (IABAM) in the Philippines. Please continue to pray for them!! Thank you!!

This month they received some of the Balik Bayan Boxes with food, clothes and other things at the Refuge House. We are so thankful as it has taken boxes longer to arrive than in the past. Other Balik Bayan Boxes are still on the way. We also are packing more to ship. They were getting low on food to feed the malnourished kids but praise Jesus - He is right on time!!

We are waiting for the thank you letters for the school sponsors. We will mail them to everyone when they arrive. All the children are doing well in their elementary and high school studies. The college students are also doing well. I am waiting for their first semester grades for college to share with everyone. Two of the teachers have Covid and have not been able to give their grade for that class. Please pray for healing.

All the Boys had an activity day this month. The Lord’s Day Camp! They were encouraged to stay strong in faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. They also had some fun activities. Everyone had a wonderful time in our Lord! Ezekiel was the leader of the Boys' Lord’s Day Camp!

We are still in need of some microphones and sd card for camera. If anyone has any they do not use please contact us or mail it to - IABAM PO Box 525 Micanopy FL 32667. Thank You!

Our Refuge House Team continues to do more and more house-to-house ministry. They scatter out and go to many houses and just share Jesus, encourage everyone, sing praises, pray and just let people know there is hope in Jesus Christ.

We still are having all the different services at the Refuge House - regular Sunday Service, Kids' Church, Youth Meetings, Prayer Warriors, and Bible Study along with other special events.

Please continue to pray and thank you for being a vital part of the Refuge House Family.


We love you much much!! Be blessed and highly favored!

PRAISE JESUS!

DISCIPLESHIP

Our Refuge House Team Youth have been trained in many areas of ministry over the last few years. They have learned to lead praise and worship, to lead children's church, to lead in home churches, to do visitations, to do Gospel outreaches, to participate in church services in every area, to lead VCS (Vacation Church School) and other events at the Refuge House.

Jackielou, Bernard, Ezekiel, and other Refuge House Team youth have now started the next phase of their Discipleship. This is a Very Very Important part of their Discipleship. It allows them to be a part of the decision making of all the different ministries of I Am Born Again Ministries (IABAM) in the Philippines. These youth have been well discipled on how to seek our Loving Father God’s Will through His Son, our Precious Lord Jesus Christ. They are now bringing suggestions and ideas for the ministry to leadership meetings. They will be allowed to be in the leadership meetings when praying and seeking Our Loving Father’s Will over their suggestions and ideas.

This part of discipleship will challenge them to a deeper understanding and relationship with our Loving Father, our Precious Lord Jesus and Wonderful Holy Spirit. As well as preparing them to be able to go forth and lead in whatever and wherever Holy Spirit leads them to continue to build the Kingdom of God. This is an exciting and challenging time for them!! Please keep the Refuge House Team Youth in prayer!! Thank you!!


HIGHER EDUCATION

Jackielou & Ezekiel are starting their second and last semester of college this year. Both are doing very well in their classes. Both of their second semester costs will be Approx. $1,500.00 to $1,700.00 Please be in prayer for this provision. Thank You !!


REFUGE HOUSE

Beloved, Teresa has asked to please be in prayer for some new microphones for outreach and SD cards for camera to video. Thank You!!

Video below shows the boys with their fishing poles fishing. It is so funny to me! They have not learned how to cast and were throwing the line by hand. But they had a GREAT time fishing. They were so happy and blessed!!
( I have told Teresa to get Doy Doy to teach them -LOL !! )

Also I told Lolita it reminds me of when she and I go fishing! The boys only caught five fish that day, and Teresa had to fix peanut butter sandwiches for them to eat. Every time Lolita & I go fishing we have such a great and blessed time just being out in our Loving Father's creation, but we always end up going to the fish house to buy fish to eat!! LOL!!


We love you much much!! Be blessed and highly favored!!
Thank you for being a part of Refuge House Family!!

PRAISE JESUS!

BAPTISM

Praise Jesus, there were 13 precious youth baptized in January! Plus one more, my precious Sycee, who is now 14 years old! Also one adult, Samuel, was baptized. They went to the swimming pool because there were strong waves and strong currents plus lots of jelly fish last month in the sea at our Refuge House. These new believers surrendered their will to our Father’s will to follow Jesus! Now the journey begins as they will be taught the ways of Jesus! Our Refuge House Team will now continue to Disciple all of them!

Please pray for these precious young men and young women as they become rooted and grounded in the Word of God and in the love of Jesus.


GIFT GIVING

Praise Jesus, the gifts arrived and have been given to many many kids. The kids were very very thankful for the gifts! All the boys were given a kid's reel and rod. The reel was a Cars Movie Shakespeare reel.

All the boys were so excited as they had never had a reel & rod before. They have been fishing along the shore as much as they have been allowed to go. They have been catching small fish, which has them real excited. Plus the family gets to eat the fish, which brings more Praise to God and thanksgiving to Jesus for You!!


REFUGE HOUSE

All the ministries and services continue at Refuge House. It has been a challenge as it seems every week the restrictions change. This week you cannot leave home. Next week you can leave home but not travel outside the barangay. etc. We continue to Outreach at every available time.


SCHOOL SPONSORSHIP

Our elementary & high schools are still doing modular work from home and turning it in each week.

College Students are still in person depending on each week's covid restrictions. Our college students are still doing double work as they help the elementary and high schoolers with their lessons as well as their own lessons.


PRAYER

Please pray for comfort for one of our youth - Ruffa. Her mom graduated to be with the Lord. She is the youngest in the family and misses her Mom very much. Our Refuge House Team is ministering to her every day.


HALLELUJAH HARRELL'S HAMBURGER AND SMOKED BBQ PULLED PORK

We did our first cooking fundraiser this month to help feed malnourished kids in Palawan. We had cooked for the youth in Cross City and we had extra left over. So the next day we set up for afundraiser in Trenton in Gilchrist county. We offered BBQ smoked pulled pork on Hawaiian toasted bun, drink, chips and snack for $4.00 donation. We were out of food in 2 hours. Praise Jesus!

We were able to pray and share Jesus with everyone who came and give testimony of HIS Love! Some came who were having some tough financial times and were able to have a meal for free in Jesus name! We want to say thank you for everyone who gave to provide the meat, drinks, chips and snacks.

I personally enjoyed this so very very much -- being a blessing to people here and they being a blessing to the kids. Storing Treasures in Heaven! Being able to share one-on-one about our precious Lord Jesus!! I am praying to be able to do this more often! Thank you again!!

We continually pray the promises in Psalms 41:1, 2, 3 will be manifested in your life.


God Bless You We Love You!

PRAISE JESUS!

TYPHOON

In December there was a super typhoon that was very destructive across the Philippines. Praise Jesus, we are so thankful the Refuge House had very minor damage and only a small beach erosion. Our Mission House in Puerto Princesa has minor roof damage approximately $100.00 to fix. Others are not so fortunate. Please be in prayer. Thank you.


FROM TERESA

Pastor Odjie gave an encouraging word for everyone at Homecoming. The youth sang praise songs and also praise dances. The kids also did praise songs they had learned throughout the year. There were also great testimonies given. Many parents, youth and kids gave testimony of what God our Loving Father did in their lives this last year. Afterwards there was a delicious meal and great fellowship together. There was a lot of rain and wind that day, and the attendance was 110 people.

On the first of December, 70 parents, youth and kids gathered together several different days and practiced singing Christmas Carols. It was a joyous time in the Lord as we practiced then went and sang Christmas Carols. It was such a blessing.

Blessings Teresa


PRAISE REPORTS

On December 7, we had our anniversary, Homecoming, for the Refuge House.

My Precious Sycee who is now 14 was water baptized at a swimming pool this month. She could not be baptized at the Refuge House because of big waves this month.

We have been blessed with enough lentils to send 30 to 40 boxes to feed the malnourished children. We are so THANKFUL!!


IN CLOSING

A lot of the Christmas gifts we sent have just arrived. They will be given this month. Hopefully the rest of the gifts will arrive. Shipping has been slower than usual. Because of Covid and not able to have people package it, we have not been able to send Mac & Cheese for over a year and a half. Please Pray for provisions to ship it. We will need approximately $2,500.00 to $3,000.00 to ship.

Dearly Beloved, as we enter this New Year, all of us pray that you have a blessed, healthy, safe, prosperous, year of our Lord 2022.

We Love You, Thank You,
