First Northern Indiana Biker Week-end

Greetings in Jesus name to our ASR family!

We are honored to have been asked to give a summary of our 1st Annual Biker Sunday for the Northern Indiana Chapter.

We had 16 total bikes attending our Saturday ride, 12 of which traveled from out of town, to make our weekend such a success. We want to thank all that came from the bottom of our heart and say may God richly bless you. To those that reached out to us, that would have liked to have been here but couldn’t, we just want to say you were missed and we pray God blesses you as well.

We had a great time, good food and awesome fellowship. The weather couldn’t have been better for our Saturday ride.

On our way back we made an ice cream stop in South Whitley at Carole’s Corner where we were informed that they were closing but that they would remain open providing us with ice cream and floats. After she served us, she closed the stand and then came out to let us know that although the stand was closed. we were welcome to relax on the property as long as we liked

She then proceeded to tell us the story of her purpose and ministry with the ice cream stand. She always employed young people with the intent of teaching them responsibility, respect of people, hard work ethic, and to be a good person throughout life. After giving herself completely to the business and missing out on all family functions for the last 50 years she had finally felt God was releasing her from her duty and has decided to sell everything, retire and enjoy life for herself. At this time, Bro. Robert (Doc) Thompson asked her if she would allow us to pray with her that God will continue to bless and lead her. She responded that she would like that and appreciate it very much. We would like to give God the glory for providing this opportunity to show what ASR is all about.

We then headed back to the church and returned with a couple of hours to spare during which time the men enjoyed a great time in prayer where God showed up and blessed mightily, instigated and led by Bro Robert Thompson. Followed by a great meal prepared by the ladies and additional fellowship.

Biker Sunday service started with a wonderful move of the Holy Ghost in praise and worship followed by a very difficult message to bring to a church from a visiting minister, however Bro Mike (Grumpy) Markham obeyed the voice of God and delivered it in outstanding fashion feeding our hearts and minds and leaving us with so much to contemplate.

Followed by another great meal topped off with Pie and ice cream!!!

We want to give honor and thanks to all who so generously gave enabling us to not only meet but exceed our goal for Motorcycles for Missions

Last, but not least, we want to thank God for keeping His hand on all our ASR members as they traveled to their homes. We are looking forward to our next time of fellowship with each and everyone wherever it may be.

God Bless!

Philippians ASR Hard at Work

Evangelism victory report.
7/19/21
An ASR Team of 6 riders and 4 4-wheeled vehicles convoyed going to General Nakar. We took our breakfast at Rambulls, a well-known place in Tanay for travellers. The team is composed of 11 ASR members with their families. The journey was smooth and very relaxing.. looks like we’re travelling in the clouds due to thick fogs with approx. 5 meters visibility only, a great experience.
We passed three major checkpoints to reach General Nakar, by the power of God, we were able to pass through all these checkpoints. We arrived at 1PM, then we took our lunch and rested for a while.
 
At 4PM, Sister Stella, who’ve been baptized and received the Holy Ghost last ASR evangelism, started to invite all her neighbors and friends in the area. Within 20mins or less, more than 60 people came to the venue! Truly they are hungry for the Word of God!
We started the service about 5PM. A song number by Bro Jun Fabro and Bro Dan de Guzman; our preachers started to deliver the Word of God: Ptr Dennis E. and Ptr Romie C. The Lord Jesus moved mightily in the midst of us. Some of the attendees told us that what they want now is a pastor who will teach them and guide them spiritually.
ASR ministries is now levelling up from supporting the pioneering pastors in promoting the church in the area to church planting.
7/20/21
Early morning breakfast together and bonding time for ASR Families..
A once in a life time experience happened. A fish called Bolinao filled the sea shore. A local resident told us that this is the first time they saw fishes swim to the shore and toward us while we enjoy the very calm sea. We are so amazed by this phenomena.
A local fisherman tried to catch them using a very fine net 4 times but they failed, they didn’t catch even one fish.. but we continuously enjoyed picking the fishes because they are swimming toward us.. what a great experience! Suddenly, a very significant meaning on what actually happened came to our minds. People in Barangay Sulok General Nakar hunger for the Word of the living God.. they need somebody to feed them. No need to go further to catch some fishes, you just need to pick them. Praise God!
11AM, we left the place with our hearts rejoicing, enjoying the wonders of God’s creation.
Special thanks to:
• Ptr Romie Cabarle and Family for providing kitchen utensils with cook (a very young looking member of LMD UPC Baras)
• Bro Jun Fabro and Family for sponsoring the food packs and fuel for the needy rider.
God Bless ASR Philippines!
Let’s ride and build the church of Jesus Christ!
We need to keep the Philippines in prayer unfortunately the  torrential rains have brought flooding and much damage

Culture of Caring

Greetings in Jesus name!  I can not believe we are at the end of June already.  Time sure is flying by—the only positive thing about time passing so quickly is that is getting that much closer to Jesus coming to take us home!

The shape that this world is in, I know many are saying, “ Come Lord Jesus”!  I’m sure that all of you agree with me that it seems like this world has lost its mind.  The things that once were good are mocked and criticized and the things that I was taught were sin and immoral, are now in the front-being fought for and justified.  There is so much evil and corruption in our daily living and its only getting worse.  People are finding it hard to distinguish right from wrong, moral from immoral and holy from unholy.

2 Timothy 3  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.  For men shall be lovers of their own-selves , covetous, boasters, proud blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, high minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 

It is so very sad that immorality is so “common”.  Christians or anyone with an ounce of morals are the strange ones.  The grasp that sin has on some hearts and minds is unbelievable.  It can take a person and twist them into a being that is unrecognizable.  I have a person in my every day life like this.  I know from experience what sin can do to a mind and heart.

My daughter, Lindsey was raised 3rd generation  in an Apostolic church, she has been filled with the holy ghost, shouted, prayed people through to the holy ghost and been a soul winner.   She let sin creep in and started listening to others.    At 17, she was completely backslidden and “finding herself” . At the age of 20 she moved to California to live in a homosexual relationship.  She is still currently living there.

How could my baby girl, be gay?  I questioned God, I argued  with God and still don’t understand. I have dealt with the evil spirit of homosexuality for many years with her.  It twists a mind almost like it rewires a way of thinking.  I don’t argue and tell her she is wrong…… she knows. But she  has  a way of twisting EVERYTHING and making justifications for her  lifestyle.  From the start she knew where we stood and where we still stand. Love the sinner hate the sin… unless you have experienced dealing with the evil it brings, its hard to understand.  Evil from this lifestyle  is real,  the failed  attempts of suicide, the anger and blame toward me,  but I also know that my God is real too!

There have been three different prophecies over Lindsey and that she will have a testimony that will win souls and how she will help those struggling with this.  I hold on to that.  I dedicated her when she was a baby and my God will bring her back!

I said all that to say this.  He is an on time God.  I have to trust in him to work on HIS time, not mine. I believe that maybe I can help a mom that is facing difficulty with a child and homosexuality.  God can take something bad and use it for the good.  I want to be used through him, no matter the cost.  Please cover Lindsey in your prayers.

Please Forgive Me …

Forgive me Lord …

I have sat down and attempted to write this for several days only to have a hindering spirit press against my goal of putting to paper what the Lord laid upon my heart. I pray this softens someone’s heart in what might be a difficult situation.

Forgive Me Lord …. I think for many of us this might have been some of the first words we ever expressed to the Lord Jesus Christ. Coming to the Lord broken, many of our lives upside down looking for a way out of a sinful lifestyle, tired of all the shame and heartaches that plagued us in life. Whatever the reason that drove you to an alter of repentance for the first time I can only imagine that these words would have at some point been expressed.

Our heartfelt desire to be forgiven for the things we had done, the lifestyle we had lived especially for those that weren’t raised in the church like myself and many others within this membership. Given an opportunity to knee before the King of Kings and ask him to forgive us for all the ugly, sinful, hateful acts in our lives and he was faithful and just to not only forgive us of those sins but to wash them away he threw them into a sea of forgetfulness. How grateful we felt for that, to be forgiven and yet it seems we have, at time the inability of forgiving those around us for so much less. Those we feel have offended us one way or another. Whether it be the warranted or manufactured in our own hearts and minds, we need to be careful, after all;

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it. (Jer 17:9)

You see I don’t even know how much the Lord had forgiven me of, many of you know my past, however the Lord knows everything every dark, dirty unmentionable secret within my heart that he has forgiven me of. I am not just talking about the first time but included is every time since. I ask the Lord to search my heart everyday and forgive me of my sins. You see I do not want anything to come between the Lord and myself that would hinder our relationship. I suppose that is why I have a difficult time watching brother next brother both in church, both filled with the Holy Ghost having a fault one to another, the inability to forgive and allowing our foolish pride to hinder asking someone for forgiveness and if forgiveness is asked the inability to in fact do so, after all the Lord did so much more for us.

Jesus Christ hung on a cross so we would not have to, why, so we could humble ourselves and ask him for forgiveness, the first step in the plan of salvation. In addition not everything we repent of and ask for with respect to forgiveness needs to be sinful in nature; sometimes it’s attitudes and actions that need a check and balance. Perhaps a time out could be in order to do a personal inventory and compare those results to the word of God. Were quick to and assured of that the Lord has forgiven us, but has he ?

Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.(Matt 5:23,24)

I don’t think there is much wiggle room here in this scripture. It’s pretty much cut and dry. How can I hold ought against my brother and expect the Lord to forgive me. How can I not forgive my brother after all the Lord did for me the only thing I can come up with is pride? To proud to go to a brother who might not even be fully aware of the offense or perhaps is hurting as much as we are only to pray that the gulf between us could be closed, but because were a stiffed neck generation that wound remains open seeping until is becomes infected with hurt, anger, strife, ill will and so much more. The Lord shows us forgiveness everyday should we not in turn show others the same courtly.

Does the Bible not say that we should be Christ like where does that line end, where do we stop being Christ like and become what he hates to see in us? Love one anther as I have loved you,

A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.  By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another (James 5:34,35)

Some might say I can love them but I just don’t like them, it doesn’t really work like that. We need to learn to forgive and forget it’s difficult but is possible. Because my word say;

But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. (Matt 19:26)

My Pastor early in my walk told me that earnestly praying for a person that has offended might not affect that individual’s attitude towards me (but it might) but it most certainly helps the way I look at them. I learned a long time ago you can’t earnestly pray for someone and not have it affect your attitude toward him or her. In other words I cannot pray sincerely for someone and not have the Lord soften my heart toward him or her, I have never known it not to work. You may not become best friends but one can walk brother with brother in the sight of Christ.

I closing I want to say if while reading this someone comes to your mind that maybe there is some riff between you. You don’t really know how to take that first step let me say just call them (don’t text) and talk to them from your heart let them know if there is an offense please forgive me. It will take some humility perhaps, especially if you are not at fault. Remember it might not be for them it’s more so for you. At that point in the sight of God you have fulfilled your requirements to make things right. If that individual refuses to acknowledge your attempt to set things straight it’s totally on his head, he will need to answer for that, you will not. You never know he or she might just be waiting for such a call and only eternity will tell whom all that one act might effect for the kingdom of God.

Evangelism and Community Pantry at UPC Jalajala Rizal under Pastor Lito Dela Cruz
At 5 AM, a team of ASR riders took off to Jalajala Rizal for Evangelism & Community Pantry Program. The team is composed of 13 riders and 2 ASR Ladies to support the activity.
The team arrived in the area around 9 in the morning, a safe and smooth travel by the protection of God.
We started at 9:30 AM with 45 adult attendees. The service was led by Bro Bernie G. (ASR VPres.), song number by Sis Lyn G., and testimony by Bro Ely V. (ASR Sec.). The music was also handled by ASR Musicians: drummer – Bro Estaniel S. (ASR Palar), bassist – Bro Gary T. (ASR Ballecer), and Bro Dante in guitar (ASR Sucat). Our preachers are Pastor Romualdo Cabarle of UPC Baras Rizal (ASR Rizal), Pastor Jade Salvaro of UPC Hugo Perez of Trece Cavite, Pastor Dennis Elardo of UPC Langkaan Dasma Cavite, and Evangelist Edwin Villacorte (ASR Makati). They are the powerful and anointed preachers of God.
During the preaching of the Word, the Holy Ghost moved, people were crying and clapping their hands. And as a result, 11 attendees decided to be baptized in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Praise God!! 11 souls added in the Kingdom of God!
After the baptism, we distributed food packs as part of the ASR activity.
At 2:30 PM, the team went back to Manila with our hearts rejoicing in the spirit of God.
