MISSION TRIP TO BRUNEI
We thank and praise God for answered prayers and how God has opened up another
new nation for One Voice and that is the nation of
We had the opportunity to spend 4 days there and minister to the Filipino
community. By 9.30 am on Friday, we arrived at the
International Airport located in
Bandar Seri Begawan and were welcomed
by Ps Lilian Cilacan and Bro Mike Martinez one the church leaders. Our first
stop was at a Filipino fast food outlet called
Jolibee, as we filled our tummies
knowing that we had a long journey ahead of us. We then travelled 1.5 hours to
the other end of the country to a town called
The journey was lovely as we admired the beautiful landscapes of villages and
little towns along the way. We thank and praise God for a wonderful couple Bro
Manuel and Sr Agnes Emeliada who opened up their
to us and hosted us for
the 4 days. It was wonderful for a change to live in a small town that was quiet
with minimal traffic.
The backyard of where we stayed was a beautiful open field filled with
white storks. We were so proud as we travelled around the town and so many
Malaysian cars on the road…and we just could not resist it…wohoooo…Malaysia
Boleh.. We had
lunch in a restaurant tasting Brunei noodles which was somewhat similar
to what we eat here.
Towards the later part of the evening we had a home fellowship where those
CLEF (Christ Love Evening Fellowship)
gathered together for
dinner. After dinner we had a
time of worship and ministering
and the power of God began to move in such a powerful was. With one song and a
guitar, the Holy Spirit began to take over and release powerful words of
prophecy. We thank and praise God for all those who were ministered to and
touched on that night. The day ended well as we looked forward to day 2.
The day started with a time of fellowshipping as we got to know Ps Ernesto and
Ps Lilian Cilacan. We shared personal experiences in ministry that edified each
other. We then made our way to spend some time fellowshipping over
lunch with Bro Andrew and his family.
We had Filipino lunch served and then a short time of worship and ministering.
After a few hours of rest, it was time to head to the
St James Church
for the main event of our mission trip. It was CLEF’s
Anniversary celebration. This was attended by close to 100 over of
God people. The celebration began with a
march of banners and 3 flags (Brunei,
Philippines and Malaysia). The reason for the 3 flags is because CLEF is made up
of people from these 3 countries.
We had a time of
worship followed by the preaching of the word
where Ps Justin shared on Rebuilding The Temple
which was the theme of the celebration.
Ps Jacquie and Veron took time to share
testimonies. We then ministered a
song from our
album. There was a
worship dance that brought the entire event
to an end.
After the service was over, we made our way to a
where we also celebrated all the
December birthdays, namely Ps Lilian, Ps
Justin, Ps Jacquie and Bro Mike. We had a great spread of Brunei and Filipino
cuisine. We had a wonderful time fellowshipping together and getting to know the
