People Often Ask About The Follow-Up...

So, Can We Really Trust The LORD With Every-thing?

People often ask about the follow-up after the campaign.  It's a reasonable question and a burden that SMCI Director Mike Redick and the entire SMCI team share! As you know, it's one of our biggest prayer requests -- we pray that the LORD would allow us to disciple and follow up the new believers--and also we are so burdened for those with questions yet unanswered! 

The 70 full-time and many part time SMCI workers continue the evangelistic ministry and carry out discipleship and Bible Study during the year.  Last year, the LORD allowed us to have almost 5000 students enrolled in Bible Study on 7 islands and 70 campuses.  This year, we are asking for many more! Does the LORD have no plan for those who do not join us? Are they abandoned?

Absolutely not!

We believe that God has his eye on every new believer. He has shown us time and time again that He has a plan for every single one! While we do all we can and also call upon Him to provide for each and every child of His--we know we are not the ONLY ones He uses-he uses other Bible believers and churches! Time and time again we have seen Him do it!

So when we received this email, we weren't surprised, just awed again at the Omnipotent, Omniscient hand of the LORD who goes ahead to prepare the way for those who are the called according to His purpose--and our great God who answers prayer!

Please rejoice with us and read this most amazing email from Rich and Christy Lee and their son Landon Lee! They are missionaries who have recently started serving the LORD in Negros Occidental (Week 2)! They are from Open Door Baptist Church in Troutdale, Oregon!

from the Lees...


. . . it has been so uplifting to get your emails every evening and see how wondrously the Lord is working throughout the Philippines . . . we are now settling in to missionary life here in Sipalay City, Negros Occidental.

Our youngest son Landon goes to high school at Gil Montilla NHS and when we heard you were coming through we made sure we were all there to meet your team. There were more classrooms than Evangelists so my husband Rich got in on the action too! I got pictures . . . they are posted on our blog at http://abbamission.blogspot.com/2011/07/smci-comes-to-gil-montilla-national.html .


IF the Lord leaves us here another year . . .  we would love to join your team. May the Lord continue to draw souls to Himself and give you the health, strength and wisdom needed for each day.

. . . I forgot to tell you that the young Pastor (SM) who is part of our mission and I are having music and devotions with the students who have vacant classes on Fridays at Gil Montilla NHS. We have gotten positive feedback and we also plan a monthly outreach for the entire school. Hopefully we will be able to stay in touch with the ones who accepted Christ recently and may  more lives be touched! 

In Him,
