Brief report on Medical/Dental Mission and DVBS in Calapan 2012

18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Matthew 28: 18 – 20

We thank the Lord for the opportunity to serve Him in the recent mission outreach to Calapan. There were about 30 people who went to the Ibaba Elementary School in Calapan comprising the Medical and Dental teams, their assistants and volunteers from Singapore and Philippine. We carried out the task of providing both medical screening and dental treatment for all the primary school students, teachers and some relatives of the students.


The New Lifers who went for this trip included Mr. Emmanuel Gumapon, Mrs. Arlyn Gumapon, Mr. Justin Gumapon, Sis. Beng Suat, Dr. Ivan Lim, Sis. Amy Lim, Mr. Sean Lim, Mr. John Lim, Ms. Linda Lim, Ms. Roselyn Chua, Ms. Dorothy Tan and Elder Sim.  Dorothy’s sister Bee Chin and her husband Tiong Meng also joined us on this trip.

The Filipinos comprised volunteers with MAP; among them Dr. ‘Jun’ Eliseo Garcia Jr. (surgeon in private practice), Dr. ‘Josie’ Josefina Marca (paediatrician in public hospital), Dr. Darien Dong-As (internist in St Luke’s Hospital), Dr.Hedda Trio (retired O&G doctor); and the following dentists Dr. Lisa Basco, Dr. Gemma Andrada, Dr. Shane Martinez (pediatric) and Ms. Anna Javier(dental assistant). Three staff nurses completed the team: Mr. Paul Banas, Mr. Juanito Amarillo Jr.’Yan’, and Mr. Joshua ‘Joab’ Abram Afuang.

Pastor Gener,  and his wife Lina; Ms. Annie Uy (who was with us last year too) as well as students Mr. Jaymar, Ms. Mitch and Ms. Arlene also helped in this mission primarily for preparation and teaching the DVBS.  Pastor Gener and Lina with the help of some church members provided water and lunch for the team.

Medical and Dental Missions

This took place over 3 days at the Ibaba Elementary School and half a day at the Calapan Grace Community Church. A total of 571 people (students and adults) were screened medically and 146 people had dental extractions. It was a delight to observe other team members perform support services such as clerking cases, pre-screening and recording height and weight. Bee Chin and Tiong Meng helped with crowd control and allocation of queue numbers. The picture was one of an organized church in community outreach and it was a joy to see everyone doing his/her part in this good work for the Lord. The common medical conditions were respiratory tract infections, musculoskeletal complaints, hypertension and urinary tract infection. Those people with conditions that required specialised consultations, e.g. goiter, hypertension were referred to the community hospital for assistance. Compliance to medical referral was a problem as many of them are poor and unable to afford the medical fees.

Before the dental work began, the surgical instruments were laid out and sterilising solutions prepared. Then the team gathered to pray for God’s guidance and blessing for the day. The children were seated against the wall to do tooth extraction. We could see apprehension and fear on the faces of some children but most were very brave and did not even let out a whimper when they were injected with local anaesthesia. Very few of them cried or rejected treatment. After the extraction was done, some of the younger children were given animal-shaped balloons for their “endurance and bravery.” While the extraction was in progress the onlookers in the waiting queue were curious or apprehensive.

Dr. Ivan Lim & Dr Shane Martinez also taught the children about oral hygiene. Each child received a toothbrush through the courtesy of Dr. Ivan Lim.

Daily Vocational Bible Study

This took place in the Ibaba Elementary School from 4 to 5pm over 3 days. These classes (K1, K2, P1 to P6) were assigned 2 teachers each to conduct bible lessons on “Story of Jonah.” The emphasis was on the disobedience of Jonah to the will of God and resultant fear and running away from God because of his sin. The lessons were conducted in both Tagalog and English with the help of some local volunteer teachers. Lessons included a song “My God is so Big”, worksheets and origami (folding a paper whale) to highlight the theme. The children’s response was spontaneous and heart-warming. In a few classes, some children had difficulty concentrating on the lesson due to the long school hours and fatigue. The school principal and her staff were supportive of our mission work.

Evangelistic Outreaches

We met with 27 students and some parents at La Conchita Resort for an evangelistic church retreat. We thank God for the opportunity for Elder Sim to share the Gospel of God (Rom 1:1) covering 3 topics over 2 days.

Brother Emmanuel met with high school and university students separately in the same private resort we went to last year. It was a big gathering of 90 students from different schools and the thrust of the event was about friendship. Emmanuel spoke of the friendship between David and Jonathan and the friendship between Jesus and His disciples. Small discussion groups were formed to challenge the students to be ‘friends’ with God.

1. Lessons/Reflections from some of the team members

We are thankful that the Dental/Medical Mission teams from Philippines and Singapore availed themselves to meet the need of the school. Their dedication and service has touched many lives with the love of God. Someone commented that they warmed the ground and allowed the teachers to meet the children before meeting them in the classrooms.

We are thankful for the opportunity to share God’s word with the school students many of whom are very enthusiastic, lively and happy children. We pray for more opportunity to serve them in the future.

Some team members were first time participants. The feeling of warmth and affection received from the students eventually removed the apprehension felt in the run up to the trip.  They had gained some insight into what such work entails and the enormous task that some chose to undertake purely for the love of God and His people.

We were appreciative of the good team work between the Singaporeans and the Filipinos. We had very good support from the local pastor and his church members throughout this mission trip. The purpose of the mission trip was successfully accomplished to the glory of God.

2. Was it a worthwhile trip and would they recommend this to others?

Team members commented that it was definitely a worthwhile trip in terms of serving the people in Calapan, teaching biblical truths to the students in Ibaba Elementary School and the special bonding with fellow Christians on the trip.

There was no language barrier as we all spoke English. The networking and cooperation with MAP, Pastor Gener and his team and the school staff provided a solid foundation for this mission work to be accomplished. This also provided a framework for future missions.

Team members would recommend such a trip to other church friends. They have learnt to empathise and to reach out to others sacrificially. To all, this mission trip has been very meaningful. It was relaxing and enjoyable as well.

3. Comments or suggestions to make the next mission trip better.

We should invite more children or teenagers to join us. We should involve more families on such trips which provide a good exposure to mission work.

Give youngsters the opportunity to interact with the students of the School. The Ibaba students are very fond of John, Sean and Shelomith.

Bible lessons should incorporate more action songs. Choose one as the theme song. The Bible lessons taught through songs are better appreciated by the children.


  • Pray the Lord to keep this door of mission open, and that He will give us boldness to proclaim the gospel of God to the people of Calapan.
  • May the Lord open their eyes to the truth of the gospel, to embrace only Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour and to reject false worship.
  • Pray for Pastor Gener and his wife Lina. Praise God that Lina passed the board exam and she can now teach in schools. The Lord’s leading and guidance as Lina may be embarking on a teaching career, and at the same time, she has to make time for family and support Pastor Gener in the church ministry.


We thank the Lord for making possible this Medical and Dental Missions and DVBS in Calapan. We praise Him for His guidance, protection and blessings during this trip. We like to record our thanks to the Session and members of New Life BP Church for their financial and prayer support in this ministry. Special mention must be made of Ms. Annie Uy who graciously provided the SUV freely for our use (as she had done in the previous mission trip). Her generosity and kindness is acknowledged.  And to everyone involved in this mission (doctors, dentists, nurses, Newlifers, and friends) we say a big “thank you” for your dedication, enthusiasm and labour of love in the Lord. It has been a joy to have you with us in the team. Lastly, to Him who has enabled us to accomplish more than what we have expected, to God be glory, honour and praise. Amen.

Elder Sim Chee Seng

21 Jul 13 – A Gospel Worthy of Your Life (Phil 3:1-11)

 Weekly Article  Comments Off on 21 Jul 13 – A Gospel Worthy of Your Life (Phil 3:1-11)

A Gospel Worthy of Your Life

The Excellency Of The Knowledge of Christ – Phil 3:1-11

1. Not The Measured Life

There is a relationship between passion for God and the Gospel. How does God grip our passion in Him such that our Christian life overflows with the goodness of God? How can His life, His love and His joy be manifested in our lives?

We mechanically follow the Old Testament teaching and faithfully tithe 10% of our income to the Church. Likewise we apportioned our travelling and leisure time, our time spent in church, and our service to God in a “measured” fashion and we thought – it’s good enough. We forget that God wants our all. He wants our every resource and He wants 100% of our life. He does not want our measured life. We need to seek God’s wisdom and guidance to use our finances, resources, travel etc. – for the Gospel’s sake.

2. Not The Balanced Life

The so-called “balanced Christian life” attempts to keep our various commitments like work, school activities, marriage, Christian ministry and relationships, with the Lord and with others in balance. The view is that if we are able to keep these activities in balance then we are all right. However, there are three things wrong with this teaching:-

a)     This is an unbiblical concept. The Christian calling is “to love the Lord with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength…” (Matt. 22:37, Mk 12:30 and Lu. 10:27). The Lord Jesus Christ was full of grace and truth (Jn. 1:17).

b)     This is not workable. Because we are not smart enough, not disciplined enough and not wise enough to make the right decision to balance our life. God has given us the Holy Spirit and we need to seek Him to know how to live this Christian life.

c)     This leads to a measured life and not a poured out life.  The Christian life should not be lived in a compartmentalized fashion with reference to career, marriage, church etc. The Christian life is a poured out life – one that is completely dedicated to Christ who desires to be our Saviour and Lord in every sphere of our life.

3. But the Exchanged Life

We see how the apostle Paul was led by God’s Spirit and taught by God’s Word to “put no confidence in the flesh” (Phil. 3:1). He gave a long list of his accomplishments in the flesh; something which he should be very proud of.  However, a transformation occurred in his life when he understood the excellency of the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. Whatever fleshy or material gain he had, he counted it loss (Phil. 3:8) for the surpassing value of knowing Christ alone. To him, all his earthly accomplishments is counted loss for Christ – “… I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I (Paul) may win Christ.” (Phil. 3: 8)

Nothing we have done or achieved in this life can earn us any merit in Jesus Christ:

“…not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith.” (Phil. 3:9)

The only way to salvation is through the Lord Jesus Christ. He gives us His righteousness when we place our faith in Him. The Christian life is an exchanged life – darkness for light, emptiness for fullness and death for life.

4. The Worthiness of Jesus Christ

The apostle Paul’s passion for Christ is vividly expressed in verses 10 and 11:

That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.”

How does God ignite Paul’s soul for the Gospel? The answer is in the worthiness of the Lord Jesus Christ over everything else that he had or owned. His inflamed passion, poured out life and surrendered soul reveal that he is fully owned by God.

Our career, marriage, children, hobbies, leisure, finances etc. are all legitimate pursuits or investments in life. There are sacrifices in the choices we make in these pursuits. How much of our sacrifices are made because we are gripped by the surpassing worthiness of the Lord Jesus Christ or because of personal advancement.

To the apostle Paul, investing his life in the Gospel and in the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus is neither a loss nor a sacrifice. To him, it is an investment in the worthiness of the Lord Jesus Christ.

5. From Our “Ought to” to “Want to”

Theological principles and insights are fundamental to our faith. We cannot compromise on the truths of God. In this letter, we see the apostle Paul overtaken by the excellency of the knowledge of Christ which ignited his passion, moving him to invest fully in the worthiness of Christ and laying down his life for the Lord.

How may we, like the apostle Paul, move up another step of service for the Lord? Ask God to open our eyes to see His glory, beauty and excellence such that we may move from “what we ought to (a religious rite)” to “what we want to (a life laid down for the Lord).” In the latter, we are moved by the worthiness of Christ, fueled by the passion for Christ to fully surrender ourselves to God and to serve Him faithfully.

Some biblical examples of the saints who were touched by the Lord – (1) the prophet Isaiah who responded “… Here am I, send me” (Isa. 6:8) and (2) the apostle Peter who was willing to suffer and die for the Lord. Our victory song is “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.” (Rev. 4:11)

6. Worship the Lord

Psalm 96 is a call to the true worship of the Lord.  “O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness…” (verse 9) This psalm highlighted two motives for missions:-

1)     The glory of our God (verse 3) and

2)     For the joy of the earth (verse 11).

The end of evangelism is that all creatures and creation may worship the Lord.  What has moved the psalmist to worship God? He met a God who is big enough to own his life and he met a God who is beautiful enough to capture his heart. God has inflamed his passion and moved his soul that he delighted to do His every will.

When we worship God, we are in the right place and we are in a safe place. We shall behold the glory, majesty and beauty of our Lord Jesus Christ. We shall also see His suffering. Because He is worthy, we are enabled to endure every trial as we are prepared for eternity. Sing the victory song to your children and grandchildren.

14 Jul 13 – The Three Trees

The Three Trees

An Encouragement from Eld. Prasad

Let me share an adapted story on faith and perseverance.

Once there were three trees on a hill in a forest. The three trees were discussing their hopes and dreams.

The first tree said, “Someday I hope to be a treasure chest. I could be filled with gold, silver and precious gems. I could be decorated with intricate carvings and everyone would see the beauty.”

The second tree said, “Someday I will be a mighty ship. I will take kings and queens across the waters and sail to the corners of the world. Everyone will feel safe in me because of the strength of my hull.”

The third tree said, “I want to grow to be the tallest and straightest tree in the forest. People will see me on top of the hill and look up to my branches, and think of the heavens and God and how close to them I am reaching. I will be the greatest tree of all time and people will always remember me.”

After a few years of praying that their dreams would come true, a group of woodmen came upon the trees. When one came to the first tree he said, “This looks like a strong tree, I think I should be able to sell the wood to a carpenter.” He began cutting it down. The tree was happy because he knew that the carpenter would make him into a treasure chest.

At the second tree the woodman said, “This looks like a strong tree. I should be able to sell him to the shipyard.” The second tree was happy because he knew he was on his way to become a mighty ship.

When the woodmen came upon the third tree, the tree was frightened because he knew that if they cut him down his dreams would not come true. One of the woodsman said, “I don’t need anything special from my tree so I’ll take this one” and he cut it down.

When the first tree arrived at the carpenters, he was made into a feed box for animals. He was then placed in a barn and filled with hay. This was not at all what he had prayed for. The second tree was cut and made into a small fishing boat. His dreams of being a mighty ship and carrying kings had come to an end. The third tree was cut into large pieces and left alone in the dark.

The years went by and the trees forgot about their dreams. Then one day, a man and women came to the barn. She gave birth and they placed the baby in the hay in the feed box that was made from the first tree. The man wished that he could have made a crib for the baby, but this manger would have to make do.  The tree could feel the importance of this event and knew that it had held the greatest treasure of all time.

Years later, a group of men got in the fishing boat made from the second tree. One of the men was tired and went to sleep. While they were out on the water, a great storm arose and the tree didn’t think it was strong enough to keep the men safe. The men woke the sleeping man, and he stood up and said, “Peace” and the storm stopped. At this time, the tree knew that it had carried the King of kings in its boat.

Finally, someone came and got the third tree. It was carried through the streets as the people mocked the man who was carrying it. When they came to a stop, the man was nailed to the tree and raised in the air to die at the top of a hill. When Sunday came, the tree came to realize that it was strong enough to stand at the top of the hill and was close to God as was possible, because the Lord Jesus had been crucified on it.

The moral of the story is that when things don’t seem to be going your way, always know that God has a plan for you.  If you place your trust in Him, He will bless you. Each of the trees had their dreams fulfilled but just not in the way they had imagined or wanted. Romans 8:28 – And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. 

God wants us to pray. God wants us to ask HIM for everything that we need, but we must remember that what we want may not always be what we need. God loves us and knows what is best for us. That is why when we pray and ask for something, the answer can be “no” when it is not in His will as James tells us in James 4:3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.”. God delights to answer our prayer for every petition asked according to His will as Jesus said in Matthew 7:11 – If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

Realize also God sometimes delays our requests because He has a purpose and a timing to fulfil His will as Solomon said in Ecclesiastes 3:1To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.”

A Gospel Worthy Of Your Life

The Power of the Gospel – Philippians 1:12-18

(1) Introduction

The first message touched on the birth of the Church at Philippi and how Paul thanked them for their fellowship in the gospel. They loved him and this was manifested in 2 ways – by their financial support and by their care and concern for Paul’s sufferings and imprisonment.

(2) Paul’s Imprisonment Furthered the Gospel Work

It was ironical that Paul landed himself in jail for preaching the gospel. (This occurred during the reign of Emperor Nero who persecuted the Christians and dedicated himself to completely wipe them out of the face of the earth.) To Paul, taking God’s perspective, his imprisonment for the gospel’s sake was not a setback; indeed, he saw it as His design for greater power of the gospel. (To Paul, Emperor Nero was God’s tool for the advancement of the gospel.) What resulted was that other believers became more bold and more confident in sharing the gospel in his stead. Some preached out of love while others preached out of contention, envy and strife, as they tried to add affliction to his bonds. Paul’s attitude is one of contentment: “What then? notwithstanding, every way, whether in pretense, or in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice.” (Phil. 1:18).

(3) Not Fainting in Affliction

Rev Bill Mills asked the question: “Leaders, why are we here?” See 2 Cor. 4:1 – “Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;” We must remember that God in his mercy has called us, and His mercy shall keep us and we do not faint or lose heart (2 Cor. 4:16). Both our calling to the ministry and our keeping in the ministry are the result of God’s mercy.

There is no relationship between hard work and being burnt out in the Christian ministry. Being burnt out is an issue of the self versus God. Are we in the ministry in our own strength or in His power? God’s responsibility is to keep me and He will do it till the end of the race.

(4) Paul Preached Christ According to God’s Word

Rev. Bill Mills again cautioned us to “stay on the line of truth” neither above nor below it. Those who manipulate the gospel, do so because they do not have full confidence in the power of the Word of God. We do not need to add to God’s Word. There is no need to do anything to make God more attractive. Simply proclaim God’s truth to each man’s conscience. The Holy Spirit will work to save sinners.

Christ is our message and we are not the message. As God’s servants we are to be a people of integrity and character, expressing the heart of God.

“Hirelings build up their lives at the expense of their sheep. Good shepherds lay down their lives for their sheep.”

The gospel may be hid to those who are lost (2 Cor. 4:3). In their case, Satan has blinded the minds of the unbelievers who are selfish, self-exalting, and proud, and who manipulate the gospel to preach themselves.

(5) The Gospel is God’s Power unto Salvation

In Genesis, God spoke “let there be light” and there light shone out of darkness. God can bring forth new creation through the power of the gospel. No heart is hard enough to resist the power of God. When He says, “Let there be light“, He is able to light up hearts, and to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. (2 Cor. 4:6).

Paul has full confidence in the power of the gospel. Jesus Christ has promised, “…I will build my church…” (Mt. 16:18). God knows the beginning and the end. He triumphs through the gospel. God is able to say, “Let there be light” and the truth and light of Jesus Christ will shine in their hearts and transform lives. Like Paul, God is writing the diary of our lives (Ps. 139), filling our days with His purpose and shaping us for His glory through the power of the gospel.

Are you aware of the transforming power of the gospel? Are you sharing the gospel with others?
