Marriage Encounter in Davao
by Kenneth & Kim Tan
Upon the invitation of Pastor Leo Carlo Panlilio, the Senior Pastor of the Destiny Churches network in Philippines, Rev Simon and Pastor Marilyn Yee were invited to make a trip to Davao City over Momentum weekend to run their Marriage Encounter Weekend (MEW). Whilst there, Rev Simon was also asked to preach and minister at their 1,500-strong Destiny Davao Church.
The team comprised of 13 members: five children and eight adults. Three of the adults were GKidz leaders and the others, members of FCBC. - See more at: http://www.fcbc.org.sg/on-the-road-serving-the-nation/love-timor-leste-m...
The first village we visited in Timor Leste is called Tiha-Aitahan. It was the smallest and closest village we visited, and the only one without a toilet! This village has an interesting history. The village chief, who was not a believer, had a really bad temper
Learning is not confined to a classroom. The students of Faith Community Bible School’s (FCBS) 2014 intake experienced the reality of this commonly heard statement when they were treated to an experiential learning trip in Batam.
Mongolia’s spiritual climate has been poor this past two years as Christianity is a minority religion, but we thank God for the G12 Mongolia Conference as the presence of the Lord could be felt strongly. The Conference was organised by Pastor Oh Hyo Kang, the G12 Mongolia Coordinator, at Uliastai Church.
The highly anticipated G12 Korea Conference 2014 took place from 14 – 16 August 2014 at the Korea International Exhibition Center (KINTEX) in Seoul.
For the second year running, several tribes under Pastor Simon and Marilyn Yee were tasked to step out of their comfort zone during the June holidays and bless the nation of Philippines, hence the name "Bless Philippines Mission 2014". However, it seems though their purpose was to bless, they ended up being blessed. Indeed, our God works in marvelous ways! Find out how the Lord worked through the teams to bless the Philippines by reading these stories of their escapades:
This was my first mission trip since I accepted Christ 14 years ago.

For two days, Team FCBC, led by Senior Pastor Nina Khong, breathed and soaked in the exhilaration, awesomeness and of course, God’s power that headlined the 7th annual G12 Philippines Conference.
I thank God for giving me an experience that I will never forget. I had a great team led by Pastors Richard and Jenny Ong whose interpersonal skills were great.

Overall it was a fruitful and satisfying trip for all of us. Although we were few, the small size of the group worked to our advantage.
The cell members of Pastor Angela and Wai Kiong’s tribe and the volunteer team’s families came to the airport to send us off.
