Brenton and Kristina White have been serving the Lord in many different aspects of ministry for over 7 years. They have 3 children, Elizabeth, Sophia (Salome), and Josiah that have been involved in ministry from a very early age, passing out gospel tracts, and singing in nursing homes. Following the return from his trip to the Philippines in February 2017, God has placed deep within their souls the desire to minister the word of God to the Filipinos, specifically in the city of Cagayan de Oro on the southernmost island of Mindanao.
The door has been opened, and the invitation extended, for the White family to join brother Gerald Sutek, a veteran minister of over 40 years, in the newly established ministry of Cagayan de Oro. The ministry fires burn hot in that city, with wide open doors and wide open hearts ready to receive the preaching of the word of God in prisons, hospitals, nursing homes, businesses, schools, boys homes, military bases and much more. Business was stopped until the singing of hymns and the preaching of the BOOK was over in one Borja hospital. A conviction was seen upon faces that considered what Christ had done for them. Muslim women were reading gospel tracts and considering the truth of the Gospel of the grace of God.
This excellent itinerant preaching circuit will propagate the word of God all across the city, and the teaching given in the local Bible Institute will equip nationals to continue the work of God to their own people. On this compound, young Philippino children will be brought up through grade school, through the Bible Institute, and out into the world to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ. The White family, by the grace of God and the support of God’s people, will have a part in each, if not all, of these ministries, ministering to the souls of men and women night and day. They plan to build a home on the Church property and operate these ministries from there.
The call of God on their lives to minister the word of truth was not just the desire of one, but the desire of a husband and wife team to take part in such a golden opportunity to minister in the Philippines. The blessings of walking into a place where there is an abundance of “foot in the door” ministries cannot be counted. Please pray for this family and their ministry, that their arrival upon Philippino soil will happen swiftly, and that their labour there will be fruitful.
