Amanda Evans Newsletter (Winter 2021)

Hey Family & Friends,

Happy New Year!!

I hope everyone is doing well. 2020 was definitely a different year with a lot of Zoom/Facetime happening—which I found out I don’t enjoy. I like it in person way better. ???? Over the Christmas vacation, we couldn’t see some of our family members due to COVID-19, but we were able to Facetime with some of my family. On the 27th of December, I was able to drive up to North Carolina to visit friends who are former staff of Teen Missions. It was great to get to visit with them for a week.  Unfortunately, due to Covid, I wasn’t able to see more friends but it was still a great trip. I traveled back on January 3rd—thank you, Jesus, my car made it there and back with no problems!

We’re back to work after the holidays, getting things cleaned up and organized, and getting ready for the summer. We’re praying that we will be able to go on trips this summer. We have 310 people registered for the summer. I’m not sure yet what team I will be going on, but I’m usually willing to go wherever. Please be praying that we will be able to go on teams this year to share the Gospel. We also are preparing to have our Mud Run, which is currently scheduled for Saturday, May 8, 2021.

Something else I have had the privilege of doing is helping out with the Ministry Under The Bridge (a homeless ministry). I’m able to help on Monday evenings and Friday afternoons until 6:00 p.m. On Monday evenings, we give out a hot meal, along with some clothes, hygiene items, canned foods and other food—whatever has been donated. On Friday, we give out a hot meal. There are also MRE’s and other boxes available that have dry goods in them that are easy for homeless people to use. It is not just about giving out food and items, it is also about relationships and to let them know someone cares. Another part of the ministry is helping get them back on their feet. It is a blessing to be able to work with them.

Sunday School Continues in the Philippines

CIRCUIT RIDER 1
- Ramon Dangan and Jovert Endico

God is faithful all the time in our life and ministry. We teach Bible stories with coloring books. We have started teaching how to write the alphabet. The kids are very happy and always excited in our lesson. That’s all thank you very much.

CIRCUIT RIDER 2 - Arman Mella and Wenie Garcia

Our team is doing far more in this ministry, not because of our willingness, but of the excitement of all the children and youths in the places of our ministry. We teach them to read t0 those who are not good enough in reading; teaching some to write for those who do not know how to write. We play games, teach action songs, tell stories, and teach them to familiarize the sound of the alphabet. Most important of all, we expose them in the Word of God, through giving them memory verse. We may have sometimes a rough day sometimes because of the weather, but we’ll always be on the go.

 

CIRCUIT RIDER 3
- Chris Jane Amora and Aubrey Cris Diaz

Our team is doing good. We are blessed with the responses we got from every community. We are now teaching the children about the Lord by story telling. The teens are also excited to learn more in English, such as reading, spelling and grammar. We have been able to teach the little ones how to write the alphabet and teach them the phonetic sounds. They are also requesting us to teach them math and other subjects. We found it fulfilling on our part to hear how thankful they are for the new learning they got. Some parents are hands-on in watching after their children—that is why we get to communicate and minister to them as well. Every week we have a great experience and we are looking forward to all the things that God will do in our ministry. Thank you and more power!

 

CIRCUIT RIDER 4
- Steely June Ramos and Nicole Marie Dumaplin

God is really amazing in our ministry despite this pandemic, He still works on us. We teach the children about God and also in all subjects, small group activities and hands-on learning activities. We use this situation as an opportunity to help them do the things they do not know yet, especially the Word of God. We are so thankful and grateful to all of your prayers and we believe that God will continue to bless us and provide our needs for the ministry. Thank you and God bless you.

      

Thank you for all the support prayerfully and financially! I couldn’t do any of this without you guys! God bless you!!

Hebrews 13:5,6

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” So we say with confidence,“The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?
