This is Jeremie Montes, he’s been on staff for almost 3 years and a part of the church for 5 years. Recently though he’s resigned his full-time position to pursue a bachelors degree in education at a local college in the area. His goal is to become a math teacher to elementary students. We were both sad and happy to see him go. We’re happy because he’s going after the dream God has given him, and sad because he was one of the best managers at the base and always willing to go above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly. He is also one of the most devoted when it comes to our children’s ministries, always taking time with them even now that he’s starting to take his college courses. Recently he’s moved home with his dad and sister near our church in Cam Cam, which he was excited about so he could spend more time with his dad who is in his 60’s now. One of the things I always admired about his character is that no matter the situation he would never complain, and always had a joy about him. I’m sure worshiping Jesus and singing being his favorite past time was one of the biggest reasons for that peace and joy.
The main reason that I’m telling you about Jeremie is that a few weeks ago when we visited him at his father’s place, me and Ren along with the rest of the staff seen a big need to repair his father’s home. When I walked up the steps to the elevated 1st floor they nearly collapsed and the bamboo floor almost gave way. I looked around at the walls that are all slanted to one side and up at the roof that had sunlight shining through at more then a few places. I thought to myself how can he live here. That week we had one of the fathers from the church who has worked in construction and on the church many times come and do an estimate to repair the failing foundation which needs to be finished first. He said it would cost about 25k which is about $500 USD. Ren and I prayed about it and got confirmation to go ahead and cover the costs for the foundation. The father and 3 others from the church will be working on it in this coming August when they’ll have sometime off from there regular work. I’m also going to help out and carry materials to the house.
We’d like to ask you to pray for provision for helping repair Jeremie’s house and give him, his father, and sister a safe place to live as he starts this new busy season in his life of school and working part-time. Thank you for reading about our brother Jeremie. My wife and I along with the rest of us here at Ywam Laguna have really seen the Lord grow Jeremie in his faith for this calling to be a teacher, and we're excited to see how he grows with the Lord in the future.

The father's have started the demolition today. There's is some flooding on account of the heavy rains so pray with us for better weather to come. The next step is to elevate the area to build the foundation.
