How to Reach out to the LGBT (universal message created for Filipino churches)

ExGay Testimony & Suggestions re: How to Reach out to the LGBT.

Requested by Preacher Jong Madlang-awa with a Filipino (church) audience in mind. The message is universal.

“Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.” 1 Corinthians 6:9-11

Praise the Lord!

Mansion over the Hilltop

Praise the Lord!

“In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:2-6

This is English and Tagalog. My wife is from the Philippines (Tagalog language, a nation of islands, mostly Catholic). πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­

We serve in Cambodia (Khmer language, between Vietnam and Thailand, mostly Buddhist). πŸ‡°πŸ‡­

Both people groups eat mostly “rice and noodle”-based dishes. Same region (Southeast Asia), different countries.

2020 Ministry Recap

Prayer Partners:

Thank you for your faithful support!

2020 was tough. We trust that one day we will look at Covid in the rearview mirror. But through it, the Lord reminded that suffering yields gratefulness for blessings big and small. Even the most bitter of unbelievers will have a testimony of thankfulness for simple things that we all previously took for granted – such as eating in a restaurant with family.

“My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.” James 1:2-4

2020 began with a much longer-than-expected stay in the U.S. The Lord used it. Many believe that they were born “gay”. Fighting back lies with truth, getting ex-gay testimony out there is vital. To recap highlights:

My testimony is not about me. It’s about what the Lord did for me, that He can do the same for anyone who is willing to repent and fight to follow.

The Lord Jesus Christ is truly “The God of the Impossible”.

“With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.”   Matthew 19:26

In late October, we arrived in Cambodia and hopped back into the saddle. Highlights:

Evangelism with a Focus on Reaching the LGBT:

“Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.”   Mark 16:15

“Long time, no see!” gave way to opportunity. Two men came to church with us.

Sharing Ex-gay Testimony in Cambodian Churches & Schools:
Before Christmas, I was honored to shared at a Bible school. Click below for video excerpts:
I shared, and we sang at another church in the capital city this past Sunday. Five more churches are on deck. Praise the Lord!

“Satan, which deceiveth the whole world… And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” Revelation 12:9-11

Teaching Neighborhood Children:
Against much opposition from culture and family, our neighborhood students are growing and did an excellent job again this year performing in church. Praise the Lord!

Click here for more Christmas Ministry photos.

“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”   Proverbs 22:6

At 6pm that same evening, the students and their families joined us for Christmas dinner at a Korean restaurant.

Similar to last Christmas, the gospel – including the Second Coming of Christ – was shared prior to asking the blessing. Tracts were made available.

Buddhism focuses on “being a good person” / doing good. It can appear that the Christian is likewise “just trying to be a good person”. This confusion leads people to believe that “All religions are basically the same” and steers them around the cross to everlasting damnation. With unbelieving parents in attendance, my wife suggested that I use this occasion to clarify.

“…seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils” 1 Timothy 4:1

“For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men…” Mark 7:8

So I worked with our Cambodian language teacher to get the proper words necessary to convey that message clearly. I shared that we do not “do good” because we are trying to “be good people” but because we want to point them to the Lord Jesus Christ – the only One who can save them… so that they will be ready to meet Him when they die.

Much thanks to Aunt Bobbie who contributed to bless the kids and their families for Christmas, 2020 & 2019.

Praise the Lord!

USA Ministry Update

Prayer Partners:

Thank you for your support. Our Visa applications were approved, and we passed our Covid tests. After 10 months back in Pennsylvania, we headed out to return to Cambodia. Praise the Lord!

In spite of Covid season, through this extended homestay, the Lord opened doors. We were blessed to serve 23 churches and 1 school through sharing ex-gay testimony and being a resource. Dad & Mom also shared perspective as parents of an ex-gay prodigal at many of the churches. Praise the Lord!

There is a way out of a gay lifestyle for those who are willing to turn away from following their deceitful hearts to follow Christ. Must be born again. Praise the Lord!

“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor [a]homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. AND SUCH WERE SOME OF YOU, BUT you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.” 1 Corinthians 6:9-11

To pastors & churches who welcomed us: Thank you for standing with us on difficult Bible truth in these last days!

We came home for Christmas 2019. Little did we know we would still be here 10 months later. The Lord has a way of bringing good out of challenges.
