January – May 2012
We want to thank those of you who have supported us, prayerfully and financially. It really means a lot to us. We’re always thankful to God for you. Now we would like to update you on our ministry with this newsletter every now and then.
We’ll start from last January.
We teamed up with some close friends from the US for a mission’s trip from Manila to Mindanao.
We first visited a hospital in Tondo where we prayed for some babies who were admitted there. No one wants their children sick. Our hearts went out to them as we prayed for their healing.
Love and fun at the House for The Crippled Children
Next, we visited the House for The Crippled Children. Normally, I would expect sad kids but these children were so happy to see us. They were in a school that was surrounded with loving teachers and parents. It was just awesome to be with them. We sang songs with them and ate with them. We gave them pedicures and manicures, haircuts, and even put make-up on the girls. I couldn’t stop smiling. We all were having so much fun together.
Onto Mindanao, Josh was invited to share at our friend’s family gathering. They have a big family that they gather almost every year so that they could share the gospel to them. They were such great people. And there was so much food!
In February, Josh was invited to speak at Reign in Life Church, a grace filled church. As Josh spoke, the message confirmed what was in their hearts already. It’s so exciting and comforting to find people on the same page.
Preaching the Good News in Reign in Life Church
In May, we were invited to speak at a youth retreat in Batangas held by Blessings in The Word Community. It was out first time to share together as a tag team on love, dating and relationships. Sharing our love story never gets old.
We also had an opportunity to hold healing trainings in several places from Manila to Subic. It’s touching to see people get liberated to heal themselves and others. There’s freedom in knowing our healing and health in Jesus Christ.

Aside from being part of ministry with my husband. I’ve been able to do some TV commercials this past year. (They’re still airing in the Philippines.) During the productions, I was able to share with my co-talents about the grace message, church and the love of God. I get excited to answer whatever questions they throw at me and watch them become enlightened somehow. God just seems so good now! Sharing the good news seems more exciting to me than being shot in front of the camera!
Just to let you know, what we do in between these events, we spend time in reading and studying. Being married to Josh, being with him almost everyday, I can say that he studies a lot! When I say a lot, it’s A LOT! (It makes me look like I don’t study enough haha) Not only that we also meet up with others for counseling, praying and healing as well. And I’m by his side listening to what he would share and have great reflective conversations about God, love and life.
We’re learning and growing everyday. And with everything we learn, we get excited to share with our organic church community. There’s so much encouragement and love when we share with them the goodness of God.
We live out the Kingdom wherever we are.
We also have more good news! We’ll be taking our ministry to the US very soon. We’ll be based in California. If you’d like to connect with us and have us come speak at your church, conference or event, please contact us here.
Again, thank you for all your love and support.
Josh and Remy
