Members of the Philippine National Conference, known there as the Looking Unto Jesus Church.
Rev. Prudencio Lim (right, with his late wife, Restituta), superintendent of the Philippine National Conference, wasn’t able to attend General Conference in June. He had a stroke last September, so his son Aaron planned to accompany him. However, the US wouldn’t grant Aaron a transit visa so he could fly through an American airport on his way to Honduras. Rev. Lim, having traveled to the US before, had all the clearances he needed. But without his son to accompany him, he cancelled the trip.
However, Rev. Lim did send a report on the work in the Philippines during the past four years (they became a UB national conference in 2005). Here are some notes from it.
Over 120 people were baptized during this period.
Over 150 people became Christians through crusades, vacation Bible schools, youth camps, and weekly equipping services in the various churches.
In 2007, a Pastors and Leaders conference was held in the province of Laguna, with 60 pastors and leaders attending.
In 2009, they published the “Finisher Bulletin,” a brochure given to church members to be used in weekly devotions. It is written by Rev. Lim and son Aaron Lim.
Rev. Lim’s wife, Restituta, passed away on July 7, 2009. Rev. Lim himself suffered a mild stroke on September 12, 2009, brought on by his intensive schedule of ministering in Metro Manila.
On December 23, 2009, the church in Catimon, in the province of Nueva Ecija, was built. It took 18 months. The pastor is Edison Sumaoang.
The report concludes: “2010 is another year of challenge in reaching Filipino people for our Lord Jesus Christ. This will be another year of soul-winning and equipping of the saints of God, and the passing of the anointing to our new breed of leaders. We envision raising effective servant leaders that God will raise in these last days.”
