Malbago Christian Fellowship
The Malbago Christian Fellowship began in January of 2005 at Virgin Beach Resort. Mr. and Mrs. Ross were in the Philippines looking for a place to minister. They made a one year committment and stayed in one of the cottages at VBR. They began a worship and priase service on Sunday mornings at the Club House near the beach at VBR. On my trip to Cebu in February, we began a Bible Study on Wednesday night at the Guard House at the main gate at VBR. We showed the Jesus Film Project in Visayan and Pastor Sam Cedro of the Medellin Baptist Church led the Bible Studies. We had a children's and youth rally that attracted more than 300 young people. We also had our first used clothes give away and our first food give away for the very poor people near the resort.
The ministry grew till April, 2005 when we had a Vacation Bible School for the children, more than 150 children/adults were involved. Mr. and Mrs. Ross left VBR in June of 2005 and did not fulfill their one year committment.
By September of 2005, on my trip to Cebu, we called Pastor Jacinto Layos of San Remigio Baptist Church and we expanded our childrens and youth rallies, food give aways and used clothing give aways. Pastor Jay began home Bible Studies and had 6 homes with more than 80 families involved.
On my February 2006 trip to Cebu, we had our first Baptism of 6 converts. There are another 6 baptized Christians from the Daanbantayan Baptist Church who have joined our fellowship and at least 6 more candidates for baptism by October 2006. We have added seminars for livelyhood projects.
The Tulare First Baptist Church is sent a short term mission team of 9 members in October, 2006 to build a church on a near by property and to help with the ministry there. They had a children's rally at Virgin Beach Resort with more than 300 in attendance and a youth rally at Virgin Beach Resort with more than 200 in attendance. The conducted nightly revival meetings where over 40 people committed their lives to the Lord and had food and used clothing give aways.
In April of 2009, Pastor Lyos left Malbago to pastor a ministry in his ancestral home on Bantayan Island and Pastor Danilo Ilustrisimo was called to continue the ministry at the Malbago Christian Fellowship. The Tulare Fist Baptist Church continues to support the ministry on a limited bases and Pastor Danny has taken a leap of faith and left his security job in Daanbantayan for this full time ministry. His wife and children are in the photo. We have added some of the latest photos of the food give away in February, 2010.
Volunteers Needed at Malbago Christian Fellowship
If you would like to help with the Malbago Christian Fellowship ministry by spending your vacation or part (or even all) or your retirement helping with children's ministries, youth ministries, adult ministries, music ministry, Bible studies, livelihood projects or your special gift as it would apply here, just let us know in the following message form and we will offer you a free room at Virgin Beach Resort Cebu (you only pay the meal package) during your volunteer ministry time in Cebu. Malbago Christian Fellowship is only 500 meters walking distance from the resort. This is an excellent opportunity for you to share your spiritual gift with a ministry that really needs your help.
I believe God has called us to be a "light" and to be "salt". I could not ignore the needs of the people around Virgin Beach Resort. God has given me a vision for using part of VBR for a Christian Bible Camp for the youth of Cebu. Christian camping has impacted my life and I feel that God is calling me to use Virgin Beach Resort Cebu for this purpose. Please pray with me that God's will be done at Virgin Beach Resort Cebu and that souls will be saved for His Kingdom.
Malbago is a barangay or barrio that Virgin Beach Resort is located in and has some of the poorest of the poor in the Philippines. Not only is the ministry spiritual, but physical as well and that is why the emphasis is on food give aways, used clothing give aways and livelihood projects.
