Please pray that God would provide us with an amplifier and mic so that we can use the speakers He also had
provided, and also for a more permanent meeting place for our mission and home. Pray for our Movie month this coming July. Lastly,
please pray for new Bible studies, the spiritual growth of our members, and for our good health.
We thank God for all of you who are not tired of helping us here in Iba. In the beginning of 2009, 16 persons got saved for
the month of January. They are all open for Bible study. Some of them visited already the mission house and joined in our
morning Sunday worship service. But Nanay Consolacion Sudweste is the only one faithfully attending among them. Glory to God
for the 5 persons who got baptized, but again, only two of them are faithfully attending our services. Pray for the spiritual
growth of our new members Cristy (27),Julie (25), Ann Payumo (13), Aljon (13) , Jr Almondia (15) and Jayson Pamoleras (15).
We also started three added Bible studies and would appreciate your prayers for the spiritual growth of TaTay Marcelino Manalo
and wife; Sharon and Susan Fortin and Nanay Consolacion Sudweste. On February 18th, we will have a Famlly and Friends Fellowship.
We are going to have pack lunch after Sun. worship then have fellowship and games with members and visitors at afternoon.
Our purpose is to share the gospel with visitors and to acquaint them with our mission.

Our Backyard Vacation Bible School Update
What a wonderful backyard Vacation Bible School we had last May 14-15. Wherein 31 children in Dampay, Amungan and 16 children
in Bangantalinga participated. With the help of our two young people, Rovelyn Noe and Julie Ann Payumo, joined by their friends,
Charlinet and Neriza, we enjoyed teaching the children with Pauls Adventure, doing crafts, playing the games and eating the
snacks we prepared for, them. It was enjoyable to see the parents of the children in Dampay, happily helping their kids doing
their activities. We had a great fun and excitement in conducting our VBS. Thanks be to God Who gave us the victory through
our Lord Jesus Christ. Our closing ceremony was held May 17th, 3 PM Sunday. Glory to God with the 5 parent visitors who accepted
Christ as their Lord and Savior.

WHY CHURCH PLANT IN IBA?
- Iba is located on Luzon. As the largest
island in the Philippines, it is home to an estimated 40 million people.
- Iba is located in the Zambales Province, which is the
second largest province in Central Luzon.
- In Iba, 11 of it's 14 Barangays, still remain without any Independent Baptist
Church, with approximately 30,000 of it's citizens still unreached.
- Iba, as the capital municipality of Zambales, is also the seat of the Bishop
of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Iba, and is further saturated with several cults.
- For every mission or church that was started in Iba, are many
more who failed due to hardship, religious opposition, indifference, materialism, or tourism.
Together, we can make a difference!
