Pastor RJ will soon celebrate 20 years of ministry at First Baptist Church, Spring Valley, California. Spring Valley is located on the south side of San Diego. Pastor RJ says the area has definitely changed over the past few years. The church is installing an automatic steel gate to secure the property from criminal activity. God continues to bless this predominantly Filipino congregation.

Chris Hindal shared Regular Baptist International, of which he is director, with the congregation on Sunday morning, Jan. 14. Chris comments, “Many of the congregation have roots in the Association of Fundamental Baptist Churches of the Philippines, an IPFBM partner. They warmly received and embraced the challenge. Their very generous gifts indicate their sincere appreciation for the ministry.”

Pastor RJ and Chris enjoyed some good iron-on-iron type of sharing over Sunday dinner. Chris says, “My heart was full when I left Spring Valley.”
