The Taysan Full Gospel Church congregation in Batangas, Philippines sends their heartfelt thanks to all who prayed for them and others in the Philippines in light of the recent volcanic eruption of the Taal Volcano on January 12, 2020.
The Taal Volcano is located in Batangas and is only about 20 miles away from the town of Taysan. The alert level was raised to up to a level 4 (out of 5) in January but has since been lowered to a level 2 on February 14th. The Taysan residents were not forced to evacuate, although volcanic ash continued to fall and coat the area for weeks, presenting challenges for the local gardens and farming.
Pastora Melita Gabion (front left) reports that the Taysan FGC and its outreach in Tubahan, one hour walking distance away, continues to flourish and grow as a mighty body of Christ. While the main congregation (pictured above) utilizes a make shift meeting space on an abandoned property, the Tubahan outreach congregation meets home to home. Currently the ministry of Taysan Full Gospel Church is reaching nearly 100 men, women and children, who are all local residents of this mountainous region. Working with Phrear School of Theology, TFGC hosts a PST study center, training its Next Generation Leaders to serve this community well. To God be all the glory! The ongoing vision and prayer is for a permanent building to be built for the Taysan Full Gospel Church congregation there in Taysan. Let us all pray for this to come to pass!
