MISSIONS UPDATE
The Babors
Philippines

Meet the Babors!
Marcy first experienced the Philippines on a short-term mission trip and was reminded of the call God placed in her heart when she was just 8 years old. She returned to the Philippines annually and moved there in 2005. She and Paul started working together in the ministry and by the end of 2006, just one month after launching CMC, they were married. They have 3 children, Keishel, Jaslyn (5 yr old twins) and Nathan (just born April 2014). The Babors are currently overseeing the central part of the Philippines (the Visayas), Myanmar, Nepal and soon Bangladesh.

Ministry Highlights

Myanmar Mission Trip
In November, the Babors hosted a short-term mission team from AGLOW International led by Janet Mangum. As the team shared in local homes and held 4 seminars, they saw God move in miraculous ways!

Evangelistic/ Healing Crusades
In the last several months, the Babors have been active in hosting teams for the crusades in Luzon. Marcy joyfully explains, “It is always a blessing to see so many people respond to the Gospel and receive healing in their lives and bodies. Our favorite part though is seeing the pastors grab hold of the vision of CMC and begin to pursue it. Whenever a new church is planted as a result of these outreaches, we rejoice!”

National Conferences
October was National Conference month, a time to gather and encourage pastors as well as receive their recent reports of success and areas that need strengthening. The Provincial Coordinators (pastors who oversee 5-10 networks) asked them to visit the networks that seem slower in moving toward the goal. Accepting the challenge, Marcy says, “We are all excited to stir things up and see Jesus worshipped in every village!”

Plans for 2015

  • January-March: Vision casting to encourage networks to fan into flame the vision of seeing a church in every village of the Philippines! They are collecting church planting pledges that give the name and contact number of a local pastor and the village where the new church will be planted this year. They will encourage the pastors as they work toward the goal, and expect to double the number of churches planted in the Central Philippines this year.
  • April: Vision casting and training meetings in Myanmar and Nepal and an initial vision casting meeting in Bangladesh!

Please Pray with Paul and Marcy for:
1. Boldness. Please pray that we would have a boldness to preach Christ wherever we are in the world.

2. Open Doors and Open Minds. Please Pray that we would find open doors to share with the lost and to partner with the local body as we travel in the Philippines, Burma, Nepal and Bangladesh.

3. More workers! Please pray that many short-term teams would come to share in the harvest here in Asia! (a team is coming from LIFE this year!) The harvest here reminds me of Luke 5 where Jesus tells Simon to cast his net in, and the catch is so plentiful that he has to call for “partners” to help them bring it all in!

4. Unity. Please pray for unity in our family as we work in the mission field and Unity in the body of Christ as we partner with many different ministries.
