We are excited to share that 509 RU Chapters have started in the Philippines! And, to add to it, we almost daily receive notice of other churches wanted to start a chapter of RU. As of today, 29 churches are waiting for us to return with training for their ministries. To God be ALL the glory!
One church that has already begun having meetings is in Iloilo, where missionary Dr. Rick Martin pastors. Dr. Martin recently sent us an update that their RU class currently meets on Saturday and the attendance is between 150-200 weekly. These are mostly “surrenderees” who have turned themselves into the government seeking help with drug addiction.
Dr Martin went on to explain with joy that over 80 of these students are showing up for church functions and more that 25 come faithfully to every service. They even have a radio station that is daily broadcasting addiction help.
Two couples of those recently saved through RU were living together and wanted to make things right now they are saved. Below you can see pictures of a double wedding and rejoicing as the transformation by Christ is well under way!
