Most of the 160 church planters pose for a souvenir picture.

The church planters were so eager to learn from the speakers as well as with each other.

The combination of Missionary speakers and Filipino lecturers was a dynamic blend of wisdom and practical expertise.

his life and wisdom to his beloved Filipino church planters. Pastor Stephen Lonetti, Pastor Steve Wheeler

Pastor Stephen Lonetti, Pastor Steve Wheeler and Dr. Trevor Craigen ministered to pastors, sharing their conviction on the importance of Biblical perspective of the Church, Worship and the preaching of sound, unadulterated Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. All the topics moved and reawakened the pastors towards what is Biblically sound against the extreme secularism that is becoming prevalent in churches of today.

Church planters benefited from the donated clothes coming from Angelo Palo and team from US, from Nelson Reed of Action, Tim Holwerda of CRWM, Pastor Joel Alfonso of CCF, and Pastor Fred Montes of Bread from Heaven CF. Dr. Tom Clinton and Brother Rey Isadora helped some non-White Fields to reach the conference too.

The Church planters Manual of White Fields were handed to all church planters during the seminar. Along with it is a set of books from CLAIM (7 of them), CD’s of Dr, John MacArthur’s sermons and the Foundations Book of systematic Theology in Tagalog donated by Pastor Ralph LaRosa of Lucena Bible Church.

The remaining copies are all stocked temporarily at the White Fields guest room. The thrust for 2006 is to get the manuals to the provinces with a training component that goes with it. Pastor Leo will be traveling and working with groups of pastors in regions of the country to stir up the passion of effectively planting healthy churches all over the country.

This is a major prayer for 2006.

We honored the elders of the conference. These are men who have planted many churches over the years. We got them in panel and interviewed them about their experiences in church planting that will be very helpful for new church planters.

They really ministered and inspired the young men with their experiences and faith.

New Church planters receive instructions from Elma and Grant Skoog about reporting and other related matters in the local office. These men were also placed in hot seats. Most church planters asked them questions especially in the area of perseverance. Later they were encouraged and prayed for by all church planters.

50 church planters who have confirmed were not able to come for emergency reasons. Some for inability to travel due to bad roads caused by bad weather.

Two church planters informed us tow separate concerns. One had his church burned down the night before the conference. This includes their house since they live in a parsonage adjacent to the sanctuary. The other pastor had a heart failure and that his wife and children were sick too.

Even with a few pesos to spare the church planter decided to help their fellow workers. They gave for the two pastors and remarkably the conference was able to gather a good amount for the two pastors to split up.

The conference became organized through the handling of Conference Assistants (CA) coming from the current church planters in the program headed by Pastor Roy Casido. They were assigned to groups of 10 and acted as dorm leaders. It also gave them joy as they became servants of fellow pastors. It became a lot easier for White Fields staff to focus on other matters. We thank God for them!

It was an exhausting conference but it is worth the trip for our dear speakers.

It was an exhausting conference but it is worth the trip for our dear speakers. Pastor Stephen ponders about the impact of their ministry.

Not in the picture always is Pastor Steve Wheeler (I don’t know why?). He takes a lot of pictures. No picture of Pastor Leo too.

To look at nature is such a relief and refreshing. It reminds us that God is great and He is always in control even in the midst of stressful time during the conference.

The joy of seeing and meeting everybody offsets beyond measure the exhaustion we all experienced. Church planters will travel back to their provinces carrying loads of books, waiting for buses, boarding ships and smaller means of transportations.

At the end of the day, we all are smiling and happy in what has happened. We cannot imagine how the ministry will echo down the lives of the people these dear church planters will touch, until we see each other again.

Glory to God!
