Dear Eternal Life International Partners,
Thank you for all the support you have given ELI in the past years. Whether it was prayer or financial support, I believe heaven is rejoicing at the many lives that were saved, healed, and delivered because of your obedience. ELI is preparing to leave again on our second missionary trip this year. We are bringing a team that includes Pastor Jesse Tricola (ELI President), Jason Marlowe, and I to be joining my son, David Ferris in the Philippines. We will be leaving Portland on October 24th, and returning on November 7th, with David. We will be holding crusades in Mindanao & indigenous villages. We will also be ministering and teaching in several churches throughout the islands.
Please be in continuous prayer for this trip. We are very excited to be a part of what God is going to do in the Philippines in the next few weeks.
This last year, David has been able to hold several crusades where he was able to witness God move powerfully. With your support, ELI was able to fund outreaches in two high schools, one college campus and three basketball tournaments. We were able to present the gospel in classrooms and other locations and watched 2,231 people received Jesus for the first time! Praise God! We also were able to partner with pastors in local areas and hold 8 healing festivals where we saw hundreds of people give their hearts to Jesus and many healings. Just this last week, David held a crusade in Aklan, Philippines where hundreds received Christ and many were healed.
If you would like to be a part of the fruit of this ministry you may write a check to ELI at 15036 Saint Andrews Drive, Oregon City, Oregon 97045 (ELI‘s new address). If you want to support David Ferris on a monthly basis or one time offering put his name on the memo line. David will be here for the Christmas season and will then return to the Philippines in January. Thank you again for all your prayers and support. Great is your reward whether you go, send finances, or pray.
P.S. I am excited to tell you I finally have moved to Oregon! I would love for you to visit sometime so you can see the home God has blessed me with.
