Help Rebuild Agohu Methodist Church
Organized by: Lawrence Uhl
On June 15, 1991, the Methodist Church in the Barangay of San Isidro, Cabangan, Zambales, Philippines was destroyed when Mt. Pinatubo erupted. After the church was destroyed, they were not able to rebuild and was only able to provide services in the main town of Cabangan. This left many of the less fortunate people of the area with no place to worship, as they could not afford transportation to the church which can be over an hour’s walk. Since then, the faithful have been meeting in temporary structures, on the beach, and in people’s homes, with Pastors from the Methodist Church travelling weekly to provide services.
On November 25, 2012, it was decided to establish the Agohu Methodist Church where the previous church stood. Through the years, the church has grown from just 35 members, to now 147 members, and has established four mission points in nearby villages (Sto Nino, San Rafael, Sta Rita, and in Marilao, Bulacan).
Agohu Methodist Church is a missionary church service, witnessing and teaching the greatness of the love of Christ. The church aims to proclaim the good news to all people of any race, in every place. It devotes time in bible studies, visitations, community outreach, leadership training, and providing for the less fortunate. The church also gives school supplies to the poor, sponsors children to go to school, and teaches kids to read and write.
We would be grateful and blessed if you would consider a donation to the church to go toward building 3 permanent structures, each of which is in various stages of completion, for the congregation to worship in. As they serve a very poor area consisting mainly of rice farmers and fisherman, they have not been able to get close to raising the $50,000 they need to rebuild. Any amount would be greatly appreciated.
Please, also, pray for us, that we may continue to spread the word of God and continue to do good works.
Thank you so much for your consideration. Blessings and love to you all. To God be the glory.
