Dear Praying Brethren,


I failed to send a prayer letter to you about the bible conference (camp) and the annual Pastors’ conference, which recently concluded. I am writing, however, to ask your prayers for lasting blessings upon those endeavors.

The bible conference was held from April 13 to 15. We had about 95 attendees not just from the church but also from sister churches in Ozamis, Iligan, and Leyte. We dealt with the subject of Hell (4 sessions) and Heaven (3 sessions). The Lord so richly blessed each of the messages. Moreover, we also really enjoyed gracious and mature Christian fellowship one with another. Please pray that God would stamp eternity in our eyeballs (to borrow Jonathan Edward’s words). May the reality of hell and heaven continue to influence pervasively how we live here on earth! May God particularly save the unbelievers who were with us!

Last week, we had the three-day annual Pastors’ Conference (April 25-27). We dealt with the subject - the doctrine of Scriptures in 12 sessions. Pastor Steve Hofmaier and I shared the ministry. We had four sessions each day for three days. Seventy-five men attended from the Islands of Visayas and Mindanao. We are very encouraged of the careful and serious attention the men gave to the ministry of the word. Thus far, we had the best group of men in one conference. The Lord really came to bless the ministry of His word with much power. We are overwhelmed with the testimonies of the men who attended as to how God richly blessed them through the ministry of His word. Our prayer is that God would continue to deepen the men’s appreciation and conviction of the unmatchable value of the God-breathed Scripture, and that they will more diligently study it, live it, defend it, and preach it.

We thank God for all the blessings He has poured out upon us recently. Please pray for lasting fruit of these recently concluded ministries.

Yours in the bonds of Christian love and fellowship,

Pastor Jose Francis "Nene" Martinez
Of behalf of my fellow pastors and the members of Sovereign Grace Bible Church of Cebu

P.S. Pastor Paul’s wife, Phoebe, just gave birth today to another baby girl, the third and last.
