From the Multiply blog: E-laine lives in the Philippines and has requested we pray for them in the tragic wake of Typhoon Haiyan. She specifically asked that we pray for Gracetoration Christian Fellowship in Coron, Palawan, Philippines, a church that has used Multiply as a tool in their disciple-making. Recently, we were able to ask her some questions to better guide our prayers.
How are you connected with Gracetoration Christian Fellowship in the Philippines?
The Pastor of this church, Pastor Paul Dignadice is a dear friend of our family. He used to pastor our church in Metro Manila, but the Lord touched his heart to go back to his homeland, which is Coron, Palawan. He organized a group called “Jesus’ Young Followers” – discipling young men and women who will give glory to God and will make disciples who will make disciples who will make disciples who will make disciples. I have volunteered as a Youth Leader under Pastor Paul’s leadership for 5 years but I am based here in Metro Manila.
Jesus’ Young Followers Facebook page is: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Jesus-Young-Followers/192509407536603. We post updates on this page too.
How can the church here assist you? Include some specific prayer requests.
a. Pastor Paul’s house and other workers’ houses has been hit really bad by the storm – pray for provisions as they rebuild; pray for comfort, Strength (spiritual, emotional, physical), wisdom, and more love for the Lord as they continue to become living testimonies of Jesus’ love.
b. The church lost its roofing, walls, windows… pray for them as the church rebuilds.
c. The members of this church are taking care of others before themselves-their needs-their houses. Pray that the Lord will continue to comfort them, give them strength as they go around trying to help others.
d. They need provisions to do these things. please pray for provisions as they try to help others with food, clothing, shelter and provisions for their own needs.
e. Names of Pastors/workers there: they need prayers as they lead the congregation in sharing Jesus to those who lost their homes, businesses, and other possessions.
i. Pastor Paul Dignadice and family: (Pastor Paul’s facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/paul.dignadice?fref=ts)
ii. Pastor Boy Garcia and family: https://www.facebook.com/bhoy.kitgarcia?fref=ts
iii. Pastor Romy Cruz and family: https://www.facebook.com/raski13?fref=ts
You mentioned taking this opportunity to share Jesus’ love with others. How is Gracetoration Christian Fellowship doing this?
a. They opened the doors of their church to those who totally lost their homes. The church is being used as a “half-way” house right now.
b. They are going around and distributing food to those who do not have any.
I know they have more stories to tell… but im just asking for prayers for them as they face this difficult time.
c. Electricity has not been restored for the town– pray that they will get it back soon.

As you pray for E-laine, Pastor Paul, and his team, also pray about potentially giving financially to the relief effort and the enormous material need it’s attempting to meet. We recommend giving to Compassion International, Samaritan’s Purse, and Baptist Global Response… all ministries that specialize in disaster relief and long-term development, and all ministries that are currently on the ground in the Philippines.

We recently had the privilege of sitting down with Dr. Graham Cole to talk about several important biblical doctrines as well as some contemporary issues facing the church. Dr. Cole is the Anglican Professor of Divinity at Beeson Divinity School and the author of the following books:
We asked Dr. Cole about the areas he was written on – the Holy Spirit and the atonement, as well as the consequences of getting these doctrines right (or wrong) in our life, witness, and proclamation. We also asked him about some current cultural issues, such as homosexuality, that Christians must be prepared to think through.

- Three years after Radical, what has been encouraging and what has been concerning about responses to the book?
- What is the role of the church in following Christ?
- How does living radically fit with the normal Christian life?
- What does living radically look like for David Platt?
- What’s the difference between God’s commands and His individual callings?
- How is radical devotion to Christ different from religious legalism?
- How does caring for the poor fit with the church’s primary task of making disciples?
- Should we lead people in a ‘sinner’s prayer’?
- What led you to write Follow Me and why do you see it as more foundational than Radical?
- What are some cultural misunderstandings about follow Christ addressed in Follow Me?
- What should we expect from the Follow Me simulcast?
