God’s Doing Something Big in Victory Iloilo and Victory Roxas City

I am blessed to have visited our church in Roxas City and Iloilo. Our Victory Roxas church is being pastored by Pastor Richard Escosar. I did a finance seminar and train the church to use God’s money for God’s purposes and that God wants us to be rich and not just get rich.

I was so excited to see our center in Roxas City. In less than four years, we have seen tremendous growth in our church plant in Roxas. Through the leadership of Pastor Richard and his dedicated full time volunteers – we have seen the church grow exponentially. I did a short talk on team work in their staff meeting over some of the best Talaba I’ve ever tasted.

I also had a chance to talk to the youth leaders of our Lifebox Iloilo and challenged them to go back to prayer and intensity when it comes to their relationship with the Lord. As we become more passionate in our private times with the Lord, it will bring our ministries to a whole new level of power and fruitfulness. I am excited to see God move in the campuses of Iloilo.

Our church in Iloilo has been growing by leaps and bounds and the week after I preached they moved to their expanded facility besides SM Iloilo. The church building can now hold close to 450 people per service and with the newly renovated kids church, our church is also expecting families to start going to church.

It wasn’t church as usual – it was the church expectant to see a move from God. And without exaggeration, I could sense the people just getting out of their comfort zone and wanting to be used of God. Continue to pray that the gospel will spread in the city of Roxas and Iloilo.
