October 28, 2016

Dearest Beloved Brethren in Christ,

It is our earnest prayers to God that may ye all in the list are in the best of health! This brief-short report-message will be sent because some of you are asking if what is going on now here!

First, we thank you all, brethren, for your prayers. After 8 days when the Typhoon Lawin devastated our area, we still do not have Electric power! Reports said that so many transmissions, transformers, posts, and other equipment of the electric company that were destroyed but they are now doing their best to restore their services soon! Hope they can make it in few more days/weeks!

Help A Neighbor Annual Report

Dear brethren and friends,

Help A Neighbor began in July of 2007 to provide for others what they cannot provide for themselves in the spirit of Matthew 22:39:
Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.”  Help A Neighbor (H.A.N.) exists for humanitarian and charitable purposes as defined
by section 501 (C) 3 of the IRS Code.  All donations are legally tax deductible.  This is simply a legal means for individuals to extend aid
to individuals.  No church donations are accepted – H.A.N. is not an ecclesiastical organization.

Preach in Philippines, New Zealand, Australia November 29, 2016-January 16, 2017

PLEASE SHARE THIS LETTER ON GOSPEL PREACHING IN THE PHILIPPINES!
October 26, 2016th Year of Our Lord
                              
Dear brethren,

If God wills, I will travel November 29 to the Philippines to preach for the 64th time since He first permitted me to go with Jim McDonald in 1995.  Doors are open in other lands as well. December 9-20 will be devoted to working with the saints in New Zealand for the 7th time since 2009.  Next, Australia is scheduled for December 20January 5 for the 6th time since 2011.  Finally, I return to Manila January 5 and come home on the 10th, God willing.  As the Son of God, Jesus Christ alone has the authority to save our souls from sin.  All the world must know our Savior has come!  “And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age’” (Matt. 28:18-20, ESV).

Halbrook Philippine Report July 26-August 25, 2016

September 3, 2016th Year of Our Lord
HALBROOK REPORT: 63nd PHILIPPINE TRIP July 26-Aug. 25, 2016

Dear brethren,

After my first preaching in the Philippines with Jim McDonald in 1995, God has now blessed the 63rd trip with completion. Satan is waging all-out war to doom as many souls as possible to hell. God’s love calls soldiers of the cross to pass the torch of salvation around the world:   “And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also” (2 Tim. 2:2).  This time 77 lessons were presented and 62 souls submitted to Christ in baptism.

Super Typhoon Brings Suffering to Filipino Saints

Dear brethren,

Philippine news reports plus firsthand accounts by our brethren in the central and northern parts of Luzon tell the sad story of super typhoon Haima (Filipino name Lawin).  It plowed across Luzon on October 19-20, leaving a huge swath of destruction.  Crops ready for harvest were devastated, homes were damaged or blown away, power lines and their poles were downed, and thousands of people fled to evacuation centers or were displaced. Many church buildings were damaged or destroyed.  The land already had been saturated by another typhoon a few days before Haima hit with even greater fury, causing major flooding and dangerous landslides. For more details, see the news report below.

Please Pray for Filipino Brethren in Super Typhoon

Dear brethren,

Please ask everyone you know to pray for the saints in northern Luzon in the Philippines as one of the worst typhoons ever to hit that region is hitting them with torrential rains and powerful winds.  It is considered in the “super typhoon” category and is named Haima or locally Lawin.

I have received a number of messages from Filipino saints pleading for our prayers as the early rain and wind was moving into the Isabela and Cagayan Provinces.  The path will take it across northern Luzon, so other provinces will soon suffer devastation as well.  A couple of sample messages are reproduced below along with a map showing the path of the typhoon.

Home Thursday Night – August 25, 2016

Dear brethren,

By God’s good grace and providence, I reached my home late Thursday night and I cannot help thinking of Psalm 107:8, “Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!”  There are no adequate words to express my gratitude for the experience of working with Filipino saints whose faith, hope, and love are a constant source of inspiration.  I will send out a report as soon as possible on the continuing harvest of souls in the Philippines.

Dear family, brethren, and friends,

On Saturday, August 20, I bade Jonathan Carino and Jack Jaco goodbye in Bacolod City, Negros Occidental.  As they returned to their homes after a job well done, I flew to Manila for the last phase of my trip.  After getting to the hotel in Manila, I caught up on some email, exercised, and reviewed lessons for Sunday.

Halbrook Philippine Trip Report August 15-19, 2016

Dear family, brethren, and friends,

Greetings to all from the Republic of the Philippines where more than 500,000 drug pushers and users have turned themselves in to the authorities because the new President declared war on drugs and he means business. Since he took office at the end of June over 600 have died in shootouts with the police or at the hands of unknown parties.  Meanwhile, we are preaching the unsearchable riches of the gospel of Christ to seek and save the lost, thanks to the grace of God and the help of His saints.
