Recently, however, Eugene's hopes and prayers were answered. He met a fellow believer who told him about Project Philip Bible studies. Soon Eugene and several others received training to become Philips (Project Philip Bible study leaders).
“It was fantastic!” he exclaims. “I learned how to make contacts for the church and approach people on the streets.” He is especially grateful for the Bibles and Bible study materials that are crucial to growing churches in strength and in numbers.
Though once tiny, the church is now growing! Since the Project Philip Bible studies began, membership has increased to 60. The group quickly outgrew the tent. Members recently gathered their money to rent a bigger space in a building nearby, where they now meet.
Eugene beams, "Our growth is because God is using Project Philip Bible studies to touch hearts in the area. It is a perfect strategy for the development of the local church. Thank you!"
