More Photos of Brother Mark’s Homecoming

May 28, 2007

We had a great turn out of church members at the airport to welcome back Brother Mark! The church especially missed Sister Frances while she was away to return with her beloved.





Congratulations Students of FBC School!

May 21, 2007

Last night Family Baptist Church celebrated the completion of our school’s first year. Many awards were handed out, special songs were performed, and God’s Word was preached followed by some wonderful fellowship and food.
Raquel Buentipo is the first graduate of FBC School. We are very pleased with how well this fine young woman has done. Please pray that the Lord would continue to bless her and “lead her beside the still waters.”

Welcome Home, bro. Mark Ishmael

On Saturday, May 19th, we welcomed bro. Mark Ishmael back from Africa. We praise the Lord for his faithfulness in keeping bro. Mark and his group safe!
