JULY 10 Report from the Philippines.
Two teams of IMN ministers had a great time of ministry this morning in San Jorge and Catbalogan, in the island of Western Samar, Philippines.
=> Full of Glory Christian Center - CITY OF SAN JORGE
Mike Lankford and Susan Fowler ministered powerfully

=> Living Faith Christian Center - about 45 minutes away in CITY OF CATBALOGAN.
Larry Cockerham and Purie Babon taught on the topic of "The Kingdom and the King" and Larry concluded with a session on the current move of the Holy Spirit in the world. The church was packed and many people flooded the altar seeking God for empowerment and commissioning to spread the gospel around the world. Following the service, Larry and Purie met with the pastors and leaders of the church to share more about the new School of Ministry being launched in Western Samar. 

At this point we have over 40 students pre-registered and more are being added. Praise God for the opportunity of raising up pastors and leaders who will spread the gospel and plant churches all over the world. 

Many thanks to the people who are praying for our team in the Philippines.

School of Ministry Project in Asia:  2016-2018

I am excited to share with you that we are beginning 2 new ministry training institutes, one in Nepal and one in the Philippines. Our purpose is to provide training for existing pastors and for new pastors, especially those who want to be involved in planting churches in new, unreached areas.

NEPAL. Our new ministry training center in Nepal has already begun this month with 12 Pastors. The entire program will last two years, including 18 months of supervised experience in church planting. Part of the program will be classroom instruction, but the majority of it will be practical experience in evangelism, discipleship and
planting in new villages.

PHILIPPINES. Preliminary work has been done for beginning our ministry training institute in western Samar, Philippines.

Project Launch.  Susan Fowler, Mike Lankford and I will travel to the Philippines July 6-18 to meet with Pastors and inaugurate our training institute in western Samar. This will be the first ministry training Institute of any kind in that region of the Philippines. Already we have 40 pastors and leaders signed up for the school.

Course Materials. Our curriculum will be provided by ISOM (International School of Ministry) based in California. ISOM is a video-based curriculum, but it has some of the best teachers in the world, including Jack Hayford, Joyce Meyer, Larry Stockstill and Rinehart Bonke. In 18 months, the students will earn an internationally recognized Associate Degree in Biblical Studies.
