REFUGE HOUSE

One of the member’s mother-in-law passed away. At the funeral, the granddaughter shared Jesus to about 300 people many of whom were touched and drawn by HOLY SPIRIT!!

This month we had VBS at the Refuge! 60 plus kids came. Some of the kids were away, visiting at relatives, but when they heard of the VBS they came home so they could be in it. They were so excited for the Bible Activities! Singing Praises, and Teachings and of course the games!

Hazel & Diana were home from bible college and they helped with the VBS! Everyone was so glad to see them!! Some Kids experienced for the 1st time the real relationship with JESUS!!

Also this month Jesus is Lord Church had summer camp here. 50 plus youth came from different areas, Cuyo Island, Coron, El Nido, Ilo Ilo, Puerto Princessa, Narra and Aborlan. Everyone was so Amazed at the Refuge for the Presence of the LORD here! Our Lord did great things with the youth!

All the other ministries are doing well and the kids are ready for school to start this month. Our Kia truck and yellow school bus are in good shape and ready to take the kids to school! Doy Doy our bus driver is ready also, He says he misses hearing the kids Praying and singing on the way to school! We thank our Father in Heaven for being able to help the children with school!

PRAISE JESUS!

For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you plans to give you hope and a future. -- Jeremiah 29:11

We just thank you Jesus, for all your goodness in our life! It is summer at the Refuge House, very hot and the grass has turned brown. Some of the children and youth have gone on vacation, to relatives in other towns. But lots of others spend a lot of time here at the Refuge House.

They have lots of activity here, Bible games, prayer, sharing Jesus, along with other times to have fun, swimming, and playing. Lots of kids work very hard at home doing their chores so their parents will give them permission to come to the Refuge House. Their chores include cleaning, washing clothes, bringing drinking water to the house, finding firewood and cutting it up and other things also.

When they are through with their chores they get permission to come. Also lots of them get permission to stay over the weekend. They are so excited to be able to be a part of all the activities for our Lord Jesus Christ at the Refuge House.

On Sundays we are so blessed by hearing the word of God from the Bible. At Prayer warriors and Bible studies, we are so thankful to our Lord because in our prayer times our Father is showing us visions and we are increasing in strength to pray without ceasing.

We know in prayer and praise we are victorious and in peace in every situation that we may encounter in our everyday lives. Thank you Jesus!

This month we have had no rain, it's very hot. The farmers could not plant their crops because the land is so dry and it's hard as a rock. But we are thankful to our Lord Jesus who is faithful to provide ! The parents are so thankful for the continual feeding because they cannot provide three meals a day because a lack of crops. Thank you and God bless you!

Also we had a church (Jesus is Lord with Pastor Dave) come and had a God Encounter Retreat here at Refuge House. There were 40 youth and adults that came. Most of them were the first time to experience Jesus in their lives. The activities went very well and everyone experience the presence of Holy Spirit! So very many of them had very empty lives, but after the activities, good teaching from The Bible, Life testimonies from the leaders and when they surrendered their lives to Jesus, they were filled Full of Love, Joy, Peace and Hope in their hearts.

The pastor and leaders are so very thankful and blessed to be able to come to the refuge House and minister to the lost sheep. Again we thank you and Praise the Lord for you!

Praise Jesus!! HE IS ALIVE FOREVERMORE!

As you read this all the children are finishing their exams and projects for the school year. With the help of Holy Spirit, we know they will complete everything to pass their grade!! They are excited for their summer break to visit relatives and friends in other towns. Also the Refuge Team is very excited they will have more time to share Jesus!!


SCHOOL SPONSORSHIP

We just thank and praise Jesus for all of you!! Our hearts are just full of gratitude for your love to help keep these children SAFE!! They are writing their thank you letters for your love and support, and we will send them to you the 1st of May.

Please be in prayer for this next year for even more Prayer Partner Sponsors!!

School starts back in June, and we have many new children that are ready to start elementary school and some who are already in school. We know our LORD is faithful, We trust that He will provide!! THANK YOU JESUS!!!


FEEDING MINISTRY

Please be in Prayer for the Provisions to ship the Manna Pak and Mac & Cheese that has all the vitamins and minerals the children need to grow healthy for this next year. We are blessed to feed 12,000 to 15,000 meals each month, and always other schools and churches are asking for this ministry.

As you know we are allowed to teach and disciple in the schools about our Precious Jesus! Our discipling and feeding in schools will start back in June. Churches, Gospel outreach areas, home churches and Refuge House will continue without stopping.

To maintain our current feeding for all of next year, the shipping cost will be $3,500.00. Whatever our LORD provides over that will allow us to add other schools. This is good ground to sow seed for an abundant harvest of souls to your account and lots of treasure in Heaven. It also causes lots of praise and thanksgiving to our LORD for you, as these precious hungry kids get their food -- sometimes the best they get that day -- raise their voice in humble grateful thanksgiving for food to eat. Along with parents and teachers also --Thank You & God Bless You!!!


REFUGE YOUTH

The youth continue to be servants, getting out of self and helping others! One Widow this month was Maxima Sendo, 68 years old. Her husband died last year, and she was working hard to provide her needs. Sadly she had a stroke and was unable to do any work. The youth have been helping her last month, and Praise Jesus some of her family have come to help her. Mrs. Maxima is so thankful for help, care and love our youth showed her! Please be in prayer for her healing!


GOSPEL OUTREACH

As you Know we go with many different churches to do Gospel outreaches and feeding. This month a Methodist Pastor came and asked if we would go to a Tribe approximately three hours away. The Tribe was the Tagbanua Tribe near Quezon on west side of Palawan. This is what Teresa said about this.

The outreach was amazing! Pastor William was very sure that they heard and understood the Word of God! It was so amazing that the people were so excited to hear about Jesus! The children just ate and ate and ate after the outreach. Everyone there was so thankful we came and shared the Good News of Jesus that through repentance and His blood we can be reconciled with our Father in Heaven. They were crying out to us to please come back and teach them more. Pastor William is going every week now to teach them about Jesus!!”


CLOSING

Thank you so much for the love and compassion you have to help these Precious children. Everyone at the Refuge House prays for you daily and thanks our LORD JESUS for YOU!! We know you will be richly rewarded by our Father!! Please pray for souls to be saved, healed and delivered from bondage, on fire for Jesus as Harrell will soon be doing two and three night services at different churches.

We pray for great favor, provisions, blessings in your life and your family! we pray that all the promises in Psalms 41: 1, 2, 3 are made manifest in your Life!

Thank You & God Bless You for your Prayers, Encouragement and Support! We are so very Thankful for your Love!

PRAISE JESUS!

For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you plans to give you hope and a future. -- Jeremiah 29:11

I was only home a few days from the Philippines, before Harrell loaded me on a plane for Cuba. We had a great time meeting brothers and sisters in the Lord in Cuba. Our Lord allowed Harrell to bring revelation messages to the brothers and sisters. Sir Doug shared some great teaching from the Bible and Sir Thomas also shared great teaching and encouragement. It was a very blessed time. Harrell had been praying for quite a while to be able to witness to the president of Cuba. Our Lord did not open the door for this on this trip. Harrell is still praying!

We also went to Grenada. We were only in Grenada a few days, but we were able to see several people that we were pastors to years ago.


REFUGE HOUSE

The Man (Ty Ty) who sold us the land for the Refuge House has died. The last night of the waiting period till burial in their custom, there were 200 + family and friends at the home behind the Refuge House. Pastor Odgie and the Refuge Team ministered to everyone and shared Jesus. Many repented with tears and even those who were drunk were crying out to our Lord Jesus. We Praise Jesus for what His Spirit did that night. They were so thankful for us coming to minister. We believe lots of angels are rejoicing in heaven.


REFUGE TEAM

Our Refuge Team spent a lot of time ministering this month to the widows and elderly in the area. There are many who are sick, some just lying in the bed. Our team went to their houses, cleaned their houses and brought food for them to eat. They all want prayer for healing. As our Refuge Team prayed with them, they could see tears in their eyes, and they were so thankful for our team to come to their home.


REFUGE WORSHIP SERVICE

At one service this month during Praise & Worship, the presence of our Lord was so strong that everyone ended up on the floor crying out to our Father in Heaven. Our Praise & Worship usually goes on for an hour or more before there is any preaching. They did not even get through the worship because even the keyboard player went to their knees crying out to our Father. No one could even bring a message as everyone was on their knees and faces. It was around two hours before anyone could get up. Everyone felt such a great love and peace and thankfulness as the Holy Spirit took over the service!

Afterwards everyone was shouting and singing praises for such a great encounter with our Lord! Crying with joy and thanking Him for His goodness! Everyone was overflowing with joy of the Holy Spirit working in their hearts! GLORY TO GOD OUR FATHER!!


REFUGE TEAM OUTREACH

Our newest outreach area on Sunday now has around 30 to 40 kids every meeting and growing! Praise Jesus!


ROOF REPAIR UPDATE ON UPPER ROOM

We have most of the money, Praise Jesus! We have ordered the roofing materials but not sure how long before it arrives, hopefully soon!


IN CLOSING

All the many churches , elementary schools , home churches , outreach areas and everyone here at Refuge House all continually pray for all of you who are part of I Am Born Again Ministries. We pray for great favor, provisions, blessings in your life and your family! We pray that all the promises in Psalms 41: 1, 2, 3 are made manifest in your life!

REFUGE HOUSE

We had a great time at the Refuge House, seeing all the youth so excited about our Lord Jesus — praying, praising, worshipping, and going out sharing Jesus! They have grown so much not only spiritually but also physically! They are now young men and women! We also have a new group of Kids that are now being discipled.

All the Ministries are doing so well at the Refuge, we just Praise Jesus! Prayer warriors meet on Wednesday Night. Prayer Meeting is on Friday night. Saturday morning is Children’s Bible study. Saturday Night is Adult Bible study. We also have Saturday afternoon outreach area Bible study and some Home church meetings. On Sunday morning is Worship Service followed by Sunday evening Home churches!

I felt so blessed going to all the church activities, seeing the great things our LORD is doing with our Youth and seeing our Lord using them to touch so many lives. I felt so blessed to be able to share with them how much our Father loves them, and encourage them to stay rooted and grounded in His Word and to stay strong in the faith of what our Lord Jesus has done for us! Feeling Blessed cannot even really describe the way I felt! I wish every one of you could see how your gift of love has had such a great impact on so many many people! The Love of Jesus that flows through you is so precious and life changing! Every one of us is working together to build our Fathers Kingdom! We Thank You, Lord Jesus!

There were three typhoons while I was there, two went north as normal but one went straight to us — very unusual. Please be in prayer for all the families of the ones who lost their lives and homes. Refuge House lost some of the roof on the Upper Room Prayer area, but no structural damage and no one hurt! Thank you, Lord Jesus, for protection! Hopefully we will have provisions this month to fix the roof.


SCHOOL FEEDING AND SPONSORSHIP

We have more video of feeding at the schools that we will share this month. I want to tell all of you how so very Thankful I am for your support of School Sponsorship for the kids! As most of you know, it is so dear to my heart! Knowing that our kids do not have to leave their homes to go to the city to be working students is such a great BLESSING!! Knowing they are safe from many dangers of the enemy of our soul and knowing that they are protected from all types of exploitation, my heart is so thankful!

GOD BLESS YOU & THANK YOU for being a School Sponsor!! Also the discipling and feeding at the schools is one big blessing! I wish you could hear the thank you from the kids and the excited voices as they eat! The parents and teachers so thankful for the Lord’s Blessing! It warms your heart as you know you are receiving abundant treasures in Heaven. When we give to one of the least of these little ones, we give to our Precious Jesus!


CUBA OUTREACH

When you get this newsletter, please pray in agreement with Harrell & me for Acts 4:29–30, that our Father will draw many to Himself as we share the Gospel of reconciliation and for favor with officials as we probably are still in Cuba. We will send an update on this next month.
(Update: We just got back!)


IN CLOSING

We give thanks to our Father when we pray for you! We pray with such joy as you have been partners with us as we spread the Good News of Jesus Christ! Our Father knows how much we love you and how you have a special place in our hearts! We continue to pray the blessings of Psalms 41:1–3 in your lives! We pray that your love will overflow more and more!

Thank You & God Bless You for your Prayers, Encouragement and Support! We are so very Thankful for your Love!

Blessings,
Harrell & Lolita

FEEDING

Praise Jesus! It’s wonderful to give our thankfulness to our Lord Jesus for His mighty work through the feeding program here in Palawan, as I witness the thankful hearts of everyone.

The teachers always support us as we help their pupils, teaching the word from the Bible and feeding time. The parents are very thankful and supportive for the manna pack rice and mac and cheese that are full of vitamins for their children. The parents cannot provide the vitamins that their kids need. That is why the feeding is a great help. And the teaching from the Bible is so important for their spiritual growth.

The children do their part listening to the Bible teaching and memorizing Bible verses and avail the nutritious food to become healthy physically.


GIVING GIFTS

Everyone is very thankful and excited to receive their gifts! The parents are so thankful to our Lord Jesus for all the blessing that their children have experienced. Knowing that most of the parents could not afford to buy toys or dolls for their kids because their income is just enough for their everyday needs, all of the children are very thankful even in a small toy they could play with. That is why when the children receive their gifts, they are amazed and very happy, and very excited and cannot wait to play with them!


WE CELEBRATE JESUS’ BIRTHDAY

The parents, youth and children are very excited to celebrate our Jesus’ birthday at the Refuge House. Everyone brings different kinds of food to share. Every family brings a harvest from their farm like banana, cassava, sugar cane, papaya, guava, pineapple, coconut, different kinds of root crops and different kinds of fruits for their tithes and offering to the Lord.

The youth and children offer a dance presentation. Pastor Odgie shares about salvation and asks everybody to renew their relationship to Jesus. Everyone follows the simple prayer and let Jesus be always the savior in everyone’s heart. Parents bring their children to be dedicated to our Lord Jesus on that day, and we pray with the pastor and his wife to dedicate the children. After the service, Pastor Odgie offers a free wedding if somebody wants one.

I am so thankful for your life to our Lord Jesus for being part of I Am Born Again Ministries. It’s always been a great blessing especially to the poor and hungry children. While their physical needs are provided by feeding, their spirits are also is growing. As these children grow, their faith in Jesus will grow by teaching them the word from the Bible. Each of these special kids will know more about Jesus in their lives.

Today, Mother Vergie, Israel, and I went to feeding at Apoc Apoc Elementary school. I talked to the principal, and she has lots of compassion for all the children in school. As of now, they have 120 pupils, and most of the little ones – Kindergarten to First Grade – are malnourished because the source of the income of that village is very low. That is why the principals, parents and teachers are so thankful for the feeding from I Am Born Again Ministries.


TWO TESTIMONIES

Grace Ombion is 36 years old and has four children, one girl and three boys. She began a Bible study in her home and is very thankful. Since she began prayer and Bible study in her home, she experiences peace in her home, and her children no longer have to go to the hospital. Before that, her children were always sick. That is why she is very thankful for the prayer and Bible study at their house.

Romiroz is a 60-year-old woman, and one of her daughters is a youth here at Refuge House Church. She asked the group to come to their house to have Bible study and now their fishing nets are catching some fish. She is very thankful because she knows that our Heavenly Father answered her prayer.

The people that accept prayer meetings and Bible studies always say that they are very happy and thankful when the group from I Am Born Again Ministries visits them and prays for them.

I am so thankful for the goodness of our Lord Jesus. I feel grateful for the house-to-house Bible study. I see improvement in each and everyone. We had Bible study at the Refuge House as well as we had training for more ideas for how to use in our house-to-house Bible study. I’m so glad because our Heavenly Father is teaching everyone to grow deep in faith so that even a youth can share the word boldly to others. Some lead the prayer, some lead praise and worship and vice versa.

I am so thankful because the people open their doors for us, and every one of them is thankful too. Since we start prayer at their houses, they experience the goodness of our Heavenly Father and receive answers to their prayer. Others are thankful for the healing of their children. All we heard is they are happy and thankful for the activity at their houses. Some houses prepare food for us to snack on. We are happy too. But we are thankful because we had a chance to share the love of Jesus to other people and we did it heartily as to the Lord.

I am thankful to the Lord Jesus for YOU being a part of I Am Born Again Ministries. Thank you for the prayers and support!

I am thankful because of the Love of Jesus in You. Being a Partner allows us to teach more deeply kids and adults to grow and stand firm on faith in our Wonderful Lord Jesus Christ.

Thank You & God Bless You for your Prayers, Encouragement and Support! We are so very Thankful for your Love!

Blessings,
Harrell & Lolita
