Noe and Grace were married in 1987 and have four children, John, Noel, Shem and Darah.
Salvation Testimony of Noe & Grace:
Noe: Before I went to college I thought that when I died God would weigh my deeds and I could go to heaven because I was preaching the word of God to my classmate and I was trying to be righteous. In 1986 I went to university and met my future wife. She invited me to attend the first service of a new Baptist mission work near my school. That January I realized all the things I thought were wrong. After the pastor finished explaining the simple plan of salvation, the Holy Spirit convicted me and immediately I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior, then followed the Lord in baptism after a month.
Grace: In our hometown there was a church and a school ministry. My sister found the church school and enrolled my nephew and niece. Every first Sunday of the month our parents required us to attend the service. One day, the Lord spoke to my heart when I attended a service and convicted my heart. I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior in June 1985 and my fear of death went away. After a year I got baptized in January 1986.
Church and school staff from 1992-1994. Noe and Grace both went to Bible Baptist College, Cebu City from 1994-1997.
Ministry Before the Mission Field:
After Bible College we went back to our home church for a year from 1997-1998 (Youth Administrator and full-time church worker).
Current Ministry in Cambodia:
We serve in Sihanoukvill, Cambodia as church planters (through soul winning, teaching basic English and Computers) and we have a Children’s Home (orphanage).
Sending Church/Mission Board:
Covenant Baptist Church (Our pastor pioneered this church. Our pastor graduated at Bible Baptist College, Cebu City, Philippines under the leadership of missionary Bob Hughes from Texas, USA). The church sent us as missionaries on October 1998. The agency that facilitates all of our support is Asian Baptist Clearinghouse.
