Family Ministry should go full circle.
The Family Ministry continues to consider in prayer God fearing believers that will beef up the team in our operations in the community. They are believers who are called to engage, fearless of the darkness of this world and reverently fearful to God. They are believers who can influence the parents and families for Christ Jesus.
The team will be trained the basic principles of the scriptures about family, on top of evangelism and discipleship. Needless to say, the Philippines' problem started in the family. Our country become as it is today because of lack of training of family among parents, and obviously there are no available leaders to train the family heads. This is the war cry of Family Ministry.
Family Ministry figures out the following tasks: Love, Courtship and Marriage seminar or bible study, Pre-Marital Counseling and Orientation, Life-long Marital Counseling and Discipleship, Parenting, Re-parenting, Helping the Single Parent, Dealing with Step Parents in a Step-Family, Life Singleness and many others. We also solemnizes marriage after we give the pre-marital orientation and counseling:
Arman and Sophie the first recipients of the Family Ministry. More are coming!
Arman Metante and Sophie Leiper are moving-up to a higher level of life commitment
Both Sophie and Arman are working on the same ministry at KIM. One thing that they look forward together for a lifetime.
After a few months with Kids International Ministries, my wife and I realize the hugeness of the task. We feel it, but we are encourage believing that the Lord has called us into this kind of ministry platform. The enemy is doing all his might to stop and delay our task. In April my whole family got infected with COVID-19, and in late May my wife and I was on a car accident that nearly took our lives together, but our God was there. He is also the Lord of the Road.
The present ministry we have is so challenging that only the men and women are qualified. This ministry separates men from the boys, and the women from the girls. Presently we have a good number of men and women in the team. They are dedicated and eager to engage and to minister the families on the ground and in fact some of them have already been ministering before my wife and I embarked at KIM, but still we are praying for more laborers to come. Matthew 9:35-38 says;
35 Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.v 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them,w because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.x 37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvesty is plentiful but the workers are few.z 38 Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”(Matthew 9:35-38)
Pray with us that the Lord will send to us more laborers to work with us! Family Ministry is yours and our ministry given by the Lord in our hearts!
