It was long in preparation. And considering that the medical mission would be held at the compound of Caraga State University (CSU) in Ampayon, Butuan City, it would then be easy to conclude that it would be the easiest of them all to stage.

But it was not that easy.

The night before and until dawn of the appointed day, which was the 19th day of September 2015, the rain poured and pounded profusely at Butuan City. Pastor Santiago “Ago” Evasco, President of the Arise Christian Ministries, Inc., felt that the torrential rain might hamper the slated medical mission. And for this, he and the rest of those who came over from Cagayan de Oro and Iligan Cities prayed that God would intervene and interrupt the rain.

When the early morn wakened up from the horizon, everybody breathed a sigh of relief. Indeed, while the day was not that sunny, neither did it rain during the medical mission’s duration. In fact, the overcast weather condition did help to temper the situation . . . until those who expected the medical mission to roll out came in trickles to the CSE Students Center at CSU.

The collective effort of Drs. ZenyTauli of the Northern Mindanao Medical Center in Cagayan de Oro City, Glen Manarpaac of the Iligan City Health Office in Iligan City, Emily Grace Banal of the Municipal Health Office in Opol, Misamis Oriental, and Megs Dauz of Children’s Clinic in Nasipit, Agusan del Norte was of great help that the medical mission itself breezed through without a hitch.

They were of course supported by four registered nurses, including those who manned the registration tables and the pharmacy, plus a host of brethren who facilitated some errands like ushering and giving of snacks and meals both for the patients and the medical mission team.

Prior to giving the needed medical attention, the patients were ushered first to a room where they heard about the gospel. And what’s the result? Just like what John the Beloved would have us believe in John 1:12, some however believed in Christ and received him, and so he gave them the right to become children of God.

After having been attended spiritually, the doctors attended to the patients’ physical ailments. On top of that, each of them was afforded with free medicines, plus snacks or meals as appropriated. And based on the statistics gathered, the medical mission was able to cater to 218 patients – 76 of them were children and 142 of them are adults.

At the conclusion of the medical mission, Pastor Evasco gathered the team and thanked each one for a job well done. He believed that “all things work together for good” because the rain during the dawn that might have hampered the medical mission was actually God’s way of tempering the humidity the whole day through. Furthermore, he cited the benefactors, supporters and facilitators that made the medical mission possible and these are the ACMI, Arise Foundation, Christian Aid Mission, God’s Shoestrings International, Beth El church and the CSU brethren.

In recollection, he mentioned that under the said strings of collaborators, the first grand medical mission was slated at Tominobo, Iligan City with 210 patients catered to. The second was in Katingawan, Midsayap, Cotabato with 224 patients. The third was in Kili-Kili, Wao, Lanaodel Sur with 310 patients. And the latest of which was the CSU affair with 218 patients in attendance. (By: Gervacio C. Dauz, Jr.)


September-October, 2015

Dear brethren in Christ,

Christian Greetings!  Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance.

We would like to share some ministry developments the past weeks.  About a month ago, while I and Babes (my wife) were preparing to attend a family reunion in Manila, sad news about the death of my brother-in-law was conveyed to us.  My Brother-in-law (and family who are based in la Union) who was also preparing for the reunion suffered a cardiac arrest which caused his untimely death. Consequently, the reunion was cancelled and so the rest of the members of our family proceeded to La Union.  Relatives of my brother-in-law from Mindanao also came to pay their last respects.  Teachers, students, and colleagues from the University where his wife (my sister) works also came.  During the wake and burial, the Gospel was shared to the people who came to offer condolences. Praise God for the many who responded positively to the Gospel.

A day after the wake, we went to visit the brethren in the mountains of Guihulngan, Negros Oriental in Visayas. By God’s grace, our brethren are doing fine in their walk with God. As an expression of their commitment to the Lord Jesus, 18 brethren decided to undergo water baptism, a great harvest indeed for the Lord.  They have also started to reach out to neighboring areas. In fact, they are now following up two house churches in nearby barrios and a growing outreach in Silay City.  To make their work easier, the umbrella organization donated a motorbike which was brought there by two leaders of ACMI by land, all the way from Cagayan de Oro. We stayed in Negros for two days.

After our short sojourn in Negros, we visited Bato, Cebu, to see how Babes’ (my wife) relatives are doing. Two years earlier, they were reached out and started to be followed up (4 times a year) by other relatives from Cotabato.  For the first time we saw Babes relatives, and really thank God for their desire to know more about Jesus Christ. This is a long time prayer and desire, and God answered them.

That same week, two brethren from Iligan also visited two places in Negros and Cebu to reach out to their relatives.  They too happily reported that many of their relatives who heard the Gospel responded positively.  These two brethren planned to conduct regular visit to these places to follow up those who positively responded to the Gospel.

The Board of trustees of ACMI met last August 29 and approved many resolutions. One of these resolutions is to support more workers and buy motorbikes for the outreaches. We thank the Lord for many supporters who through these years, continued to send financial resources for the ministry so that the work can continue to progress. The general conference come year 2016 was also finalized.  Reports of newly constructed church buildings and fellowship venues were also shared.  Continuing Leadership trainings in 4 regions were also evaluated.

Last Sept. 19, the fourth free medical mission sponsored by ACMI was conducted at Caraga State University in Butuan City.  Patients from surrounding villages were transported to this place.  Like the previous medical clinics conducted in Iligan city, Cotabato and Lanao del Sur, patients were witnessed to before receiving medical check-up and free medicines.  Join us in thanking the Lord for His love, provision, protection and guidance in our midst. Attached are some pictures taken during the conduct of the above mentioned activities. Thank you for co-laboring with us.
