The work of the Lord is moving forward! Over the past two years, in the midst of the worldwide struggles, by the hand of God, the ministries of Full Gospel Assemblies within the town of Taysan have begun expanding. The central congregation of the Taysan FG Church located in San Isidro, Taysan, Batangas has grown to now be serving nearly a hundred adults, youth and children, all by the grace of God. As the central congregation has strengthened, outreach teams have been evangelizing by foot, often more than 60 minutes away, into the areas of Bulihan and Tubahan. Congregations are now being formed in these areas. What no man would have envisioned as the doors opened to Taysan some 13 yrs ago, God is now bringing to fruition.
Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.
O LORD, truly I am thy servant; I am thy servant,
and the son of thine handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds.

Dear Men and Women of God,
It is with a heavy heart that this letter comes your way. Our Lord, in His divine providence has called home our brother in the faith, Pastor J. Victor Fisk, who along with his surviving wife, Janice, faithfully served as pastor at the Trinity Assembly Church in New Kensington, PA for 35 years.
Pastor Vic, ordained as a FG pastor, served with Full Gospel Assemblies throughout a span of 42 years. His many areas of ministry in which he served over the years within Full Gospel Assemblies, included National and Pennsylvania Regional Conference Leadership, Pennsylvania Regional Representative, Credentials and Affiliations Committee, FG Executive Governance Council, FG Director of Ministry / VP, and ultimately, Senior Trustee.
Pastor Fisk ministered into the community of New Kensington and to the parishioners of Trinity Assembly Church with a servant’s heart. And as he reached beyond New Kensington, within his many capacities of leadership ministry through Full Gospel Assemblies, he touched the lives of multitudes the world over. His four decades of ministry is an example of a pillar of faith. A legacy of ministry – an example to all who follow in his footsteps. Truly, we are able to hear the words of our Lord declaring ‘well done thou good and faithful servant’.
